Erstwhile Soft Machine drummer finally gets his due.
By Blurt Staff
Different Every Time, a new compilation album of the works of Robert Wyatt, drops next week, on Nov. 18, via Domino. Assembled by the label, Wyatt and biographer Marcus O’Dair, the double album features Disc 1 ‘Ex Machina’, the ideal introduction for the Wyatt novice, compiling tracks from Robert’s entire career to date and acting as a companion to O’Dair’s new biography, also titled Different Every Time (released by Serpent’s Tail in the UK on October 30th). Disc 2 brings together the best of Robert’s collaborations and guest appearances, or, as Robert has it, ‘Benign Dictatorships’, including some very special oddities and rarities, available here for the very first time.
The full compilation is now streaming via NPR First Listen. In addition to being available as a 2CD set or two double LPs, there’s also a mailorder-only version that features a limited edition print.
