3 stars My 2nd Favorite Caravan LP and one of my all time favorite covers, I had a terrible crush on that Girl (who ever she is). Sadly Richard Sinclair's voice is missing from this record but Pye voice is almost as good. The Music is a little more intense than The land of Gray and pink and but that is not a bad thing. This one is more rocky and possible at little less proggy than some Caravan sets but all in all it delivers the goods. The inclusion of a symphony Orchestra shows just how important a band Caravan where (not cheap) but was also in keeping with the times. In this case it works quite well , which was not always the case. Caravan are certainly a prog band and seem particularly to work well in 7/8 meter which is unusual to most peoples ears. The musicianship is excellent throughout. Sadly Caravan never made the transition from progs 2nd division to super stardom but that may be down to the constant and irritating personal changes which dogged this band. We have here an LP that is worth the entrance fee and which belongs in any good prog collection. If anyone knows who the lovely lady is I would be interested in knowing who exactly got my heart fluttering all those years ago.
