2 stars A live recording from 1974 released 34 years later.

Caravan has a very good name which anyone can make some good money out of. Release a live recording and you make money. If the live recording also have a good sound, the better. This recording has also been lifted from a radio recording. Perfect.

What we get here is three songs and the usual suspects which also features on numerous other Caravan live albums. The likes of Hoedown and For Richard. I also believe the opening song A Hunting We Shall Go is also present on other live albums. The songs are very well delivered although A Hunting We Shall Go is cut rather short.

The songs are great and my review is not a reflection of that. If you can live with the rather cut short A Hunting We Shall Go and the pretty derogatory to Caravan herding back the leaving audience for the encore Hoedown, you will be fine with this album. You get the great For Richard here. By anger is the inclusion of this herding back the leaving audience incident on this album. Caravan does not deserve to have their name tarnished by having this on an album. Caravan was and still is a great band. Please don't insult them and don't insult those of us who really enjoy this band. My other complaint is that there are many other better live albums than this one on the market and it is safe to bypass this one when looking for Caravan live albums. Hence my rather sparse stars.

2 stars
