Rock Bottom is the second solo album by former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt. It was released on 26 July 1974 by Virgin Records. The album was produced by Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason, and was recorded following a 1973 accident which left Wyatt a paraplegic. He enlisted musicians including Ivor Cutler, Hugh Hopper, Richard Sinclair, Laurie Allan, Mike Oldfield and Fred Frith in the recording. I do not own this music, it belongs to its rightful owners. No copyright infringement intended Play in HD for LOSSLESS sound quality A1 Sea Song 00:00 Bottom is a unique album, with or without the listener being aware of the background behind it. We can only guess what songs that were written early on such as Sea Song would have sounded like if they were recorded as part of a Matching Mole album, as originally planned. Alexander Graham Bells well known quote in its unabridged version fits here: When one door closes, another opens but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. Rock Bottom was Robert Wyatt's most focused and relaxed album up to its time of release. In 1974, it won the French Grand Prix Charles Cros Record of the Year Award. It is also considered an essential record in any comprehensive collection of psychedelic or progressive rock. Concurrently released was the first of his two singles to reach the British Top 40, I'm a Believer. Track Listing. Album 1974 6 Songs. Rock Bottom Robert Wyatt. Name Robert Wyatt.

This is THEE pressing to own people! I bought this sealed back in the day along with a few usa pressings and promise you all that the uk press is superior
soul-healing, a timeless (for all I could possibly know) classic.
My original American vinyl pressing blows away my original UK. It was recorded in the UK, you'd think the opposite. Go figure.
Wrong wrong wrong and wrong again. Upgrade your uk press and you will see what i am talking about.
The UK 1st press smokes the usa press. He clearly has a crap press of the uk copy. I bought both sealed and can confirm the uk is superior
thanks for this information .. which U.S pressing is it ???
This album is a blast. A sophisticated, psychedelic ‪‎Music‬ journey through excellence. Rock has, as well as ‪Jazz‬, ‪HipHop‬, ‪‎Electronic Music‬ and ‪‎Classical‬, it's sublayers wonders. Robert Wyatt's keyboard lines & percussions hypnosis blend beautifully with Gary Windo's bass clarinet & tenor Sax improvisations on 'Alifie'. A proper start to switch the day mood for the better.
Took me awhile to notice this title, being nine years old at the time it was released. Was one of my first major purchases of a stubbornly difficult-to-locate import LP (which, originally, I had as a two-fer with Ruth is Stranger Than Richard). Seemed as if I were taking an expensive chance, as I was a teen--taking the bus to the big city, where there were decent record stores--and a UK import double LP took a hefty chunk out of my wallet in those days. But I'd been so enamored of Soft Machine's first three LPs.Worth every penny. More than 30 years later, I'd rate this as among my top five recordings. Despite so many repetitions it still sounds fresh--not dated, not in the slightest--and I continue to play it at least once a month. Feels to me like a sort of musical equivalent of Finnegans Wake; an entire universe lurks within this [seemingly?] perplexing object.
Very much of it's time this one. Listening to it again, the melancholicness of it all is quite overwhelming. But through this, 'Sea Song', Mongezi Feza’s Trumpet solo, Mr. Windo’s sax solo and Ivor Culter's guest appearance stand out as 'bright spots'. In 1974, ‘Rock Bottom’ won the French Grand Prix Charles Cros Record of the Year Award. Even so, I can't imagine this was a big seller so full marks to Virgin, even though Mike Oldfied's appearance on the last track was no doubt an effort to boost sales by 'association'. Good cover illustration by Alfreda Benge (later to be Mrs.Wyatt) but now somewhat grubby on my copy thus making the subtle pencil drawing un-scannable. Shame as there’s a different cover for the reissued CD’s and it’s far more ‘obvious’. One to stick at.
