„An old Soft Machinist never lets you down. Somehow he’s brought with him much of the flavour of his old band…. [Hopper Tunity Box] belongs up there with Third and Fourth….“ – Melody Maker
„Ex-Soft Machine bassist Hugh Hopper augments his rather infamous fuzz-bass attack by performing on guitar, recorders, soprano sax, and percussion on this reissue of the original LP. Recorded in 1976, this outing features the bassist’s fellow Soft Machine bandmate, saxophonist Elton Dean, along with others of note.
…This production stands as one of Hopper’s finest solo efforts — largely due to the inspiring ensemble work and the bassist’s strong material. Recommended.“ – AllMusic
Freshly remastered from the master tapes and issued on CD from the master tapes for the first time, this was the second solo album by Soft Machine bassist and composer Hugh Hopper.
This was Hugh’s first solo album after leaving Soft Machine. In my fan-boy opinion, it is one of the best records Hugh’s ever made and is a fine and distinctively unusual progressive/fusion album that has all the compositional and performance twists and oddities that make it distinctly Hugh’s.
Originally released in 1977 on the Compendium label.
Elton Dean-alto sax and saxello
Frank Roberts-electric piano
Dave Stewart-organ, pianet, oscillators
