KEVIN AYERS Joy Of A Toy (1969) Harvest Produced by Kevin Ayers and Peter Jenner After his return from the Hendrix/Soft Machine tour in 1968, Ayers decides enough is enough with the band’s pseudo jazz and falls into a solo career. No hard feelings, thought: both Wyatt and Ratledge show up to play on Ayers’ solo debut. There was no plan when I joined the Soft Machine, I just fell in with these people. And when I left, it wasn’t a bad break-up, at all, just a definite parting of the ways.
Kevin Ayers former of Soft Machine seems to be only remembered among Prog rock fans. That's too bad because many of his solo albums are stellar and sometimes downright odd (which is a good thing). Here we get Ayers' first five solo albums with a nice mastering.
