    You just can`t go wrong with this boxset, i have a couple of different pressings on cd and lp, and this is probably as good as it gets, and yes i dont mind the "bad" sounding 3rd at all, it fits the album, and if you cant handle it, there are TONS of better sounding LIVE archival albums out from this period, and hopefully more to come !!!

      Third is a gem of an album, genuinely breaking new ground and still sounds fresh. There's a lot going on, check out the Terry Riley influenced Out-Bloody-Rageous and the nearly-all-Robert-solo Moon In June. This is the track that caused the schism in the band as they started moving in different directions (away from song-based into jazz). Moon In June is a real trip though and covers a lot of ground in just under 20 minutes. This one pointed at the direction of travel for Robert.

      Wyatt struggled manfully on and played drums on Fourth but the album doesn't contain any compositions or vocals from him. The old combination of psychedelia, soul, jazz and that uncategorisable Softs magical ingredient doesn't appear.

      The other three albums in the box are more or less straight-ahead jazz fusion BUT you get the truly awe-inspiring organ sound of Mike Ratledge. Has there ever been a better keyboard player or a more far out sound? His keyboard style is loud, vicious, unpredictable and uncompromising, and it's worth hearing these albums for his contributions.
