Editorial Reviews

Two CD set. Initially outshone by Soft Machine, Caravan quickly gained a reputation as pioneers of the burgeoning Canterbury scene of the late '60s. The band included Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers and Hugh Hopper later of Soft Machine. It wasn't until the 1971 album, In The Land Of The Grey And Pink that the band achieved a commercial breakthrough. This double CD is anthology of Caravan's best recorded work for the BBC between 1968 and 1975. Featuring recently discovered Stereo versions of "Nine Feet Underground" and "Feelin' Reelin' Squealin' " recorded for John Peel and the band's previously unissued 1973 "In Concert" broadcast. 21 tracks. Universal.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Two discs 71 and 73 minutes each approximately. The sound for the most part is good to very good. The first two tracks on disc one,being "off air" recordings,are slightly dulled-not having the immediacy of the rest of the tracks-but are still very acceptable. The title dates,while true,are heavier on later years rather than early recordings. There are only two tracks from 1968 and three from 1970. The rest of the music really starts in 1971.

Having been a fan of Caravan since the sixties and early seventies,I was surprised at how much I enjoyed these two discs in the present. The studio albums,of which several are considered classics by fans of the group,or the "Canterbury sound"(which truly never existed) are well rehearsed and planned out. On these live recordings,mostly for John Peel (once again championing a new band/sound) the group new they had to deliver the goods-and they did. Probably the closest in sound for those needing an anchor would be very early Pink Floyd(not the blues stuff they initially tried out live) or early Soft Machine. The lyrics are whimsical with that certain English quirkiness so often heard during this era. The vocals are serviceable at best,but for some reason they seem to add something extra to the swirly instrumentals surrounding the words.

While the group morphed from a "pop" sound to a "rock" sound to a "jazzier" sound,and then back and forth throughout the seventies,their sound was always identifiable. The instrumentation and the arrangements are truly of their time,and that's what's so fine about this collection. If someone wanted to hear music from this era,and wanted to know what all the fuss was about,this is what I would play them. Live the group had no second chances,so their playing was always on the mark.

As we all know, being a music fan is not easy, especially since the advent of the Compact Disc. Some material gets reissued over & over & over, remixed, remade and remodeled. This CARAVAN at the BBC set is no different. On Disc One, Tracks 1 & 2 were previously released on the compilation 'Green Bottles for Marjorie' and Tracks 9 & 10 can be found on the Deluxe Edition of 'In the Land of Grey & Pink.' Tracks 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,& 9 on Disc One and 3,4 & 5 on Disc Two were previously released on the Hux compilation 'Songs For Oblivion Fishermen'. Track 7 on Disc Two on was previously released on 'CARAVAN: BBC Radio 1 in Concert' and Tracks 8 & 9 can be found on the 'Ether Way' comp. These previously reissued tracks account for almost 5/6 of this set. The only new material here is a previously unissued 1973 "In Concert" broadcast. Sound quality throughout set is decent and somewhat better than on the previous releases, but there is only so much you can do with forty-five year old tapes. The first two tracks were recorded off the radio and have the weakest sound. If you don't have this already or are a CARAVAN fanatic, run to your nearest record shop, oh, sorry, quickly click the order button. If you own the CDs mentioned and are happy, the choice is yours. Here's what new to this set......Read more ›

Just plain awesome. The long tracks are amazingly bewildering and with such a seasoning of the Canterbury music feel.

Les enregistrements en public de Caravan de cette période 1968-1975 sont rares et pour moi très précieux .Très clairement c'est la période que je préfere et je trouve que sur scène ils donnent la pleine mesure de leurs talents.Pour avoir écouté des cd non remasterisés je trouve le son bon (1968) à excellent à partir du 11ème titre. De mème on monte en puissance émotionelle au fil des morceaux. Pour ma part je ne trouve pas ces 2 CD fassent doublon avec le Live at fairfield hall 1974. A partir de 11.A hunting we shall go le groupe à integré Geoff Richardson (violon etc)qui apporte beaucoup au groupe.
EN résumé ce double CD remasrerisé en 2007 et essentiel pour qui vous vraiment savoir quelle groupe était CARAVAN
