I'm here, and listening to Steam. Just a little behind you. Sorry I missed 4. Will listen later and comment if I see fit.

Will really try to make it Friday, and probably can. Will just need a quick exit.

John E's a great guy - I have met him a number of times. He is a friend of a friend, and played at his 50th birthday bash.

He played with Stephane Grappelli!

I missed Soft. When does R & L start?
This is not the year to think about what we don’t have.

This is really good stuff. I'm with you on the 'legacy' stuff - this is clearly as much Soft Machine as anything else. It's not the legacy anyway - it's living, breathing, and fresh.

He had/has a blues band I saw at the St Giles Crypt I was telling you about. Lots of guitar instrumentals from the 60s.
