Actually, I must admit that it is one of the best musical experiences of the Canterbury scene. The Caravan is distinguished within it to have clear and vainglorious ability to summarize all the bucolic and peaceful atmosphere typical of this subgenus of Progressive.But we know are the rare bands that can maximize their whole expressibility and creativity in all its albums (except those that produce only one or two, as we have the example of the magnificent canadian band Harmonium). In face of it, despite being a huge fan of the Caravan, I confess that I'm interessed in only three of their primary works.

About the''For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night'', should be said that it's one of the rare albums in Prog that reflect a happy and rich atmosphere from beginning to end. My highlights on this route go to''Hoedown'',''The dog, the dog, he's at it again''and''mix L'auberge du Sanglier / A hunting we shall go / Pengola / Backwards / A hunting we shall go''. The voice of Pye Hastings and set of tools specifically for this album (although other albums like''In the Land of Gray''and Pink also stand out for this) play a huge wealth for the musical that album. Finally, despite the fact that not a great connoisseur of Canterbury scenario, if you ever ask me for advice and information that subgenus albums,''For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night''will surely be within that select list. Highly recommended!
