Greetings Three is part of a series of EPs for Italian label Materiali Sonori. Though I don’t recall there ever being a second entry, the first was by Blaine Reininger and Greetings Four was contributed by A Certain Ratio. It’s a nice idea to choose your favourite artists and have them compose for your label. In this case it worked out well. I remember listening to this a fair amount when it came out. It has a nice feeling; “All That Love And Maths Can Do” especially makes an impression. No wonder this track shows up on almost every compilation and bonus track listing! Metcalfe’s viola is lovely. This EP was re-issued by the label as extra tracks for Red Shoes, a disk to avoid. It’s also available on the 2018 Factory Benelux deluxe version of The Guitar And Other Machines, an excellent album.
