Soft Machine Third vinyl Canterbury
Soft Machine's third album from 1970 was a double LP, with each vinyl side featuring a lengthy single composition.
 
Immediately considered the band's most accomplished achievement, Third explored aspects of the emerging Miles Davis/Bitches Brew influenced Jazz Fusion sound, and marked the most major of Soft Machine's stylistic shifts, completing the band's transition from Psychedelic gurus to giants of Jazz.
 
A significant milestone of the Canterbury scene, the album contains Robert Wyatt's celebrated long-form song, Moon In June.
