Kevin Ayers' debut solo album after leaving Soft Machine Soft Machine (he was a founding member). They may have progressed very differently had he have stayed.  However the parting was amicable enough to be accompanied on Joy Of A Toy by his Soft Machine colleagues Robert Wyatt, Mike Ratledge and Hugh Hopper.

The album features Ayers sonorous vocal delivery and an avant-garde song construction and an affection for bizarre instrumentation that would have a deep influence far into the 1970s and much later. Many of Ayers' most enduring songs feature here from "The Lady Rachel" to "Girl on a Swing", the latter still, regularly covered by artists to this day like Candie Payne and The Ladybug Transistor.
