Robert Wyatt - The End Of An Ear album FLAC

The End of an Ear is the debut solo album by Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt. The album was recorded in August 1970, while taking a break from Soft Machine (which he would eventually exit the following year). Containing mostly free jazz and experimental music, with no lyrics (only vocal experimentation by Wyatt), it is an unusual album. It includes Soft Machine's Elton Dean on saxophone and Caravan's David Sinclair on organ, who in 1971 would join Wyatt in the group Matching Mole.

With TEOAE, his music was certainly a step ahead of the group "that was making him so miserable", partly because on this album, Robert gets to exercise his scat vocals as much as he pleases (not the case in SM), and believe he catches up on lost time, as he signs: "out of work pop singer, currently on drums with SM".

Album originally released in 1970.

Robert Wyatt's End of an Ear isn't a serious attempt to kick off a solo career - Rock Bottom would play that role four years later - so much as it represents Wyatt letting off a bit of steam. The Soft Machine had just recorded Third, an album on which Wyatt's drumming naturally played an essential role but on which his vocals were limited to one song - his own Moon In June, a composition the rest of the band were so disinterested in he had to perform most of it himself

The sessions for "The end of an ear saw Robert Wyatt joined by guests such as Dave SInclair of Caravan and Soft Machine alumni Mark Charig and Elton Dean among others. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay. It begins with deranged, high-speed voices like something out of The Goon Show, in a vaguely Latin mood and set to discordant piano.
