This incredible value CD box set comprises five original albums housed in individual cardboard sleeves. This collection features five essential Soft Machine studio albums: Third (1970), Fourth (1971), Fifth (1972), Six (1973) and Seven (1973).

Canterbury's finest are here collected in a neat box set, with each CD housed in a mini facsimile of the original vinyl sleeve. By the time Soft Machine released Third, the band were moving into more obvious jazz territory – with jaw-dropping results. The music on each of these five albums is breath-taking, beautiful and baffling but never less than absorbing, and the obvious joy the players take in interacting with each other oozes from every groove.
