Canterbury Soundwaves episode 20

A tribute to saxophonist Elton Dean (1945-2006), from his earliest recordings with Bluesology and the Keith Tippett Group through his classic work with Soft Machine and beyond, including Ninesense, Newsense, Soft Heap, Pip Pyle's Equip'Out and National Health, to his very last composition and recording. Also, Caravan playing Gershwin (1970), Daevid Allen playing dubious guitar with the long-forgotten Princess Flower and the Moon Rays (1968), the Gong Family Glissando Orchestra playing a single note for a very long time in an Amsterdam coffeeshop (2006)...and the fool who appropriated Mr. Dean's name making an incongruous cameo on a Kevin Ayers song.
