Soft Machine’s final album for Harvest was the classic 1978 live record Alive & Well Recorded In Paris. The band’s line-up had changed once more by this point and comprised KARL JENKINS (Piano, Electric Keyboards, Synthesiser), JOHN MARSHALL (Drums), JOHN ETHERIDGE (Acoustic and Electric Guitars) and new members STEVE COOK (Bass Guitar) and RIC SANDERS (Violin). The album was the result of several nights of excellent concerts staged at Le Palace Theatre in Monmartre, Paris in July 1977. The Harvest Albums 1975 – 1978 features these classic albums along with a special poster.

Soft Machine was at the time of the recording of this album bankrupt after several failed tours in Italy where they did not get paid and had to crawl back to UK again on empty petrol tanks. The band was in disarray and the recording of the new material, the Alive & Well album, was done with a live audience over several nights just to save studio costs. This plan backfired though because the recording turned into a farce and the band had to bite the bullet and do substantial work on this album in the studio.
