If - If 3 (1971 uk jazz rock, fusion and progressive rock - repertoire records digipack repuk edition - FLAC)

If 3 continues in the same jazz-rock vein as its predecessors, with strong solo work from reedmen Dave Quincy and Dick Morrissey, and the unique fretwork of fleet-fingered guitarist Terry Smith. The material is more pop-oriented than on the band's previous releases, but it's the jazz chops of the players that place this album a notch or two above those of the other bands working this genre in the early 1970s. The track "Forgotten Roads" featured on the band's live appearance on German TV's Beat-Club in September 1971. The track "Here Comes Mr. Time" was included on the United Artists Records promotional sampler All Good Clean Fun. by Jim Newsom (AMG)
