I have always thought that they should have just called themselves Soft Machine and not bothered with the Legacy after all they only had one new boy at the time

I have lost track - who is this now? Elton Dean departed, literally, so Theo Travis, Hugh, John Etheridge, and John Marshall - is that right?

Elton Dean died years before.

Karl Jenkins departed and yes the line-up you state

Theo Travis did a stint with Gong of course.

A great player

Are you familiar with Live at The Proms (1970)

I recall watching it live at the time. The first time a band like the Softs had played the Proms!
