3 stars If the first two volumes of this collection didn't exist, then these would be much more important. In fact, all of the songs here, save for the improvs, are on the first two volumes, and with better sound.

The sound is the biggest problem with this collection. I understand that the recordings were almost three decades old, and from dubious sources at the time of this release, and many of the songs were pieced together (sometimes too obviously) from multiple sources.

The material is very good, although I wish the band played a few different songs from time to time. Where is I Talk To The Wind, Moon Child?

Still for historical significance, I'll give it three stars.
