Boomkat Product Review:
Recorded immediately after 1974's Rock Bottom, Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard received a less favourable critical reception than its predecessor, consisting of new arrangements of other artists' material rather than entirely new, self-penned songs, as had been the case a year earlier, although 'Soup Song' proves to be of particular interest for stretching back to 'Slow Walkin' Talk', a Wyatt song that had its roots in his pre-Soft Machine songbook.
Apparently, there's a version of this recorded with Jimi Hendrix, but the reworked rendition here is strange and angular enough to fit in with its peculiar surroundings on the B-side. Actually, it's not denoted as a B-side as such: the labelling reflects the album title, and so the first half becomes 'Richard', whose content is markedly more intelligible than the often quite wild and silly 'Ruth' material on the flipside. Awesome.
