Errata/clarifications: The Alice Coltrane album is called Journey In Satchadananda, not Journey To Satchadananda, and only features one musician who played with John Coltrane, i.e. Pharaoh Sanders. The version of the Allman Brothers track is from a 1971 live album, not the original from their second studio album as I appeared to suggest. I said that A Rainbow in Curved Air came out in "the early 70's", whereas it was in fact 1969. The Emeralds album Does It Look Like I'm Here? wasn't their final release, it was followed by 2012's Just To Feel Anything. Steve Roberts of Ut Gret has politely informed me "the name of the group is pronounced UT (like the ut sound in the word "lute") and GRET (like the English word "greet")"

An excerpt from What He Cost Her by James Payne (1877):

Thanks from Elgin, Illinois, USA. I hadn't heard the Terry Riley in decades! I posted a bit on Whatsrattlin about his and Daevid Allen's sojourn with William S. Burroughs in Paris, 1962-3. They provided music for some of Burroughs' 'cup ups'. I gathered this is where Allen came up with the name Soft Machine. Anticipating further episodes. cheers
