In 2000 it was voted number 715 in Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums. In the lyrics to Have You Ever Bean Green Soft Machine thanks the Jimi Hendrix Experience, with whom they had just toured through the United States in 1968 as Hendrix's opening band they were exposed to large crowds for the first time.

He provides the musical arrangements to Hopper's quirky ideas on the stream-of-consciousness collection of tunes Rivmic Melodies on side one.
