5 stars While this might be a difficult place to start for newcomers (and 'difficult listening' for those not into free improvisation), for those of you who are long-time fans (and I am one) I can say that this is the very best SM recording out there. This is the Softs playing for themselves, improvising and re-interpreting their own music (all instrumental), mere months before Wyatt left. Rivals 'Third' for sheer inventiveness, bravado and forte.
