Recorded live in 1971 during an interim phase of Soft Machine's career, Drop records the band's transition from progressive rock to free-form fusion. The full-length recording is from the German leg of the tour that year. Soft Machine, from Canterbury, England, had at this point lost drummer and vocalist Robert Wyatt to a solo career. In his place for this recording is Australian jazz drummer Phil Howard, who contributed a wild, unhinged style to the improvisation.
