The first line of musicians now contains founding members and "the classic quartet", the scond line contains later regular members, and line three contains "short time members" and guest musicians. Since some founding members are also rather "short time members", this isn't fully logical, but I kinda like it. --BNutzer 09:45, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Radio recordings[edit]

Hi! Virtually matches both criteria "Cuneiform albums" and "Radio recordings" - it was recorded by Radio Bremen. The CD sleeve says "A Production of Radio Bremen ©1971 Radio Bremen" and "Released by Cuneiform Records by exclusive arrangement with Radio Bremen". I think we should list it in both sections.

A "radio recordings" section no longer exists on the template, so this resolves the problem. But should it have a section called "Cuneiform albums"? We don't usually group discographies by record label names. I realize this is intended to separate later issues of old material, so it doesn't get mixed in with their main canon which would be confusing. Can we not find a better name for this section, since other labels could also issue material like this, or re-issue the Cuneiform material in future; for example, it should also include their 1967 demos, and Rubber Riff is nowhere to be found. What we're really missing is articles for these miscellaneous albums, to clarify what's on them (track titles, sources, recording dates, personnel), and identify which have re-issued tracks. I also notice the main Soft Machine article lumps all live albums together with "compilations" which is a problem, and that section is arranged in no particular order. --A Knight Who Says Ni (talk) 01:17, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
