Excellent album - sounds really nice too but I have to say, it really bugs me that they changed the artwork - specifically how they removed the title and artist from the front. This'll be the reason why I'll keep the polythene wrapping on my copy - at least it has the sticker with that written on.

This entry is not really helpful, as it is not the first pressing, therefore the year is questionable.
label pictures would be helpful

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.

I honestly can't place my copy then. It is V2017 says Made in England but has Green label on both sides and a tiny version of the twins in a circle.

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.
