Cuneiform has delivered a Holy Grail with Robert Wyatt's '68. Of its four recordings, half were thought lost or not to have existed. After their second whirlwind tour of the . with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the exhausted members of Soft Machine went their separate ways. Wyatt remained in California, then went to New York in the fall as a guest of the Experience.

The sound on '68 is excellent; it was painstakingly cleaned up and remastered from original sources, making this a must for any Wyatt, Soft Machine, or prog head. All killer, no filler.

68 is a music studio album recording by ROBERT WYATT (Canterbury Scene/Progressive Rock) released in 2013 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Only for completionists (3%).

Robert Wyatt ’68. The tracks on this collection were recorded shortly after Wyatt’s band Soft Machine had broken up-temporarily, it would turn out-following a tour of the States with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. In fact, Wyatt worked on the tunes while staying at a house in California that the Experience had rented; Hendrix even appears, playing bass, on the track Slow Walkin’ Talk. Rivmic Melodies (18:19) would soon be reworked on Soft Machine’s 1969 second album, Volume Two, while Moon in June (20:36) eventually took up side three of the group’s 1970 album, Third. A couple years after that, Chelsa would reappear as Signed Curtain on the debut album by Wyatt’s post-Soft Machine band, Matching Mole, while Slow Walkin’ Talk returned as Soup Song on Wyatt’s 1975 album, Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard.

Robert Wyatt (born Robert Wyatt-Ellidge, 28 January 1945) is an English musician. A founding member of the influential Canterbury scene bands Soft Machine and Matching Mole, he was initially a kit drummer and singer before becoming paraplegic following an accidental fall from a window in 1973, which led him to abandon band work and begin a forty-year solo career.
