"The End of an Ear is the debut solo album by Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt.
It was recorded in August 1970, while on a leave of absence from Soft Machine (which he would eventually exit the following year). Containing mostly free jazz and experimental music, with no lyrics (only vocal experimentation by Wyatt), it is an unusual album. It includes Soft Machine's Elton Dean on saxophone and Caravan's David Sinclair on organ, who in 1971 would join Wyatt in the group Matching Mole. About half of the album is filled by a two-part cover of Gil Evans' 'Las Vegas Tango'. 'To Carla, Marsha and Caroline (For Making Everything Beautifuller)' is based on the music of 'Instant Pussy', a song Wyatt first recorded solo during a Soft Machine BBC session in late 1969, and eventually appeared, also in instrumental form, on the first Matching Mole album."
