Softs is the ninth studio album by the jazz rock band Soft Machine, released in 1976. John Etheridge replaced Allan Holdsworth on guitar shortly after the release of the previous album, Bundles, and Alan Wakeman, cousin of keyboardist Rick Wakeman, took over saxophone duties from Karl Jenkins. Karl would play keyboards exclusively from this point onward. This change was necessitated by the departure of the group's last founding member, Mike Ratledge, who left in March 1976 before the sessions were. The Soft Machine also titled Volume One as a reissue is the debut album by the British psychedelic rock band Soft Machine, released in 1968. Founded in 1966, Soft Machine one of the central bands in the Canterbury scene recorded and released this studio album during their 1968 tour of the USA. It was produced by Chas Chandler and Tom Wilson. The work on this album was one of the essential roots in progressive rock and jazz-fusion. Songs in album Soft Machine - Softs 1976.

Rock Softs more than ever before, Soft Machine was Jenkins' band he composed fully seven of the LP's 11 tracks, making the album a vehicle for his own artistic conception. And yet, as Soft Machine albums go, this one is just fine, thank you. Jenkins had always put his own personal stamp on the material he wrote for the band, but he also retained elements of a Soft Machine style that emerged around the time Ratledge began penning LP side-long opuses on Third: a marriage of modalism and minimalism with memorable themes in layered counterpoint and an occasional backdrop of rippling, echo.
