1 stars Personally I have seen a few Caravan releases that are flirting with the scandalous (such as the Cool Waters versions, amongst others), but this one is not far from taking the cake and by far: Remember the two late 90's releases where Caravan was revisiting their own past with a new modern look, giving us a rap version (well almost ;o)) of For Richard and where they were slagging good ol' Phil?? These were called All Over You and Over You Two. Well, if you have those two, you've got 75% of this double disc affair. Add half of the not that strong album Battle Of Hastings, throw in a tad of the Astoria release and you have this completely useless double disc affair. Obviously another try from HTD via Castle to offer the fans another chance to buy this material that most of us don't want nowadays, if admittedly it was still interesting at release time, because it was all we had back then to soothe out Caravan thirst. But this turn of millennium rehash was completely uncalled for. Best avoided, really. What really annoys me is that sometimes, I have seen this as the only thing left in the Caravan section of megastores, so how can we expect to have newcomers to Caravan's universe if all they got to try is the unneeded and uninteresting stuff.

Sad and best avoided, really!!! And rated accordingly
