5 stars Caravans debute album and what a debute then, this is no doubt one of the best debute albums ever by any prog band, yes its maybe not 100% prog its pretty similar to Pink Floyds masterpice debute psycadelic pop songs but this one have more of a prog sound then piper hade and its a bit more serius sounding, thers no weakpoints everysong is totaly memorable and real gems ofc the first song Place of my own is the real winner what a way to start the album yust incredibly good prog pop song i always think for my self what if they played stuff like this on the radio, i whuld lisen to the radio all the time, songs this good simply never make it to the radio sadly, anyway the other songs are in the same style exept for the ending masterwork Where but for Caravan whuld i be and i gues its the real highpoint of the album simply a perfect mini epic, i got the new remaster of the album with both mono and stereo versions of the album and Hello Hello (single version) wich im pretty happy with and i always lisen to the whoel album caus its so good i dont mind lisening to it twice its one of thos albums where everyting runs perfectly and before you know it its over great and short like most good things are. Well one of my favorite Caravan and Canterbury albums for sure and highly recomended dont yust expect a fullblown prog masterpice its more like a psycaldial / prog masterpice in the same style as Sgt peper and piper at the gates of dawn yust a litle more prog then thos 2 and in my opinion beter. A canterbury classic you shuld get simply. 5 star in my book.
