Soft Heaps " Al Dente" (Reel Recordings 2008) has arrived. This is a good live recording from 1978 (The Phoenix Club, Londddon), with Hugh Hopper (b), Elton Dean (as, saxello), Alan Gowen (p, synth) and Pip Pyle (dr). The bandet existed with this crew only in 1978 (I think). It smells jazz rock, but it smells quite good, and if more people shop, more money will go directly to Hugh Hopper. Hopper is not able to work these days, since he is being treated for leukemia.
Larger parts of the profits from the November sales of Hopper-related material at MoonJune, will also go directly to Hopper.
