Third is a 1970 double LP by Soft Machine, with each side of the original vinyl consisting of a single, long composition. Its music explores the emerging jazz fusion of the type present on Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, which was released just a few months earlier. Long considered one of the most innovative classics of jazz/rock of any era, Third was the first album to feature saxophonist Elton Dean, who passed away unexpectedly in 2006. In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock (2005), the album came #20 in its list of "40 Cosmic Rock Albums".

When Kevin Ayers left the band, Soft Machine moved into deep jazz/rock - so deep that they rarely rocked. The mercurial Robert Wyatt became occasional vocalist, although they werenow effectively an instrumental unit of great originality. Third is generally regarded as their peak recording, a wandering foray using Elton Dean's soprano saxophone and Mike Ratledge's keyboards as the foundation to their sound. 'Moon In June' features Wyatt's frail, high-pitched voice, and is still talked about by cultists for the fact that he rarely sang the same words from one performance to another. Difficult music, but well worth the effort, especially after a vat of wine.

Cardboard sleeve reissue. Features SHM-CD format. This CD documents an often-overlooked phase in the long, complex history of Soft Machine: Australian drummer Phil Howard's five-month interim behind the kit, after Robert Wyatt's departure (prior to the arrival of his eventual long-term replacement, John Marshall). Howard was brought into Soft Machine by saxophonist Elton Dean, with both being members of Elton's side project at the time, Just Us. Under their combined influence, the band became freer and wilder than in any other time of its' long, storied existence. Illustrated by this great live recording from the German leg of their "Fifth" tour, the "Phil Howard Soft Machine edition" does swing with wreckless abandon.
