3 stars Poor sound for what is a treasure for die-hard Caravan-heads. The actual master tapes have been stolen and this was rebuilt from someone who had recorded the radio show from his home. They do a Kevin Ayers tune. The real gift for fans are that some of these tunes had been recorded before they got released onto a proper album.

5 stars 2002 "Green Bottles For Marjorie". Sound source of BBC session. It is a work that added the recording in which the work of "In The Land Of Grey And Pink" and Steve Miller in 1972 participate from the recording immediately after the debut in 1968. The same sound source as "BBC 1969-1973" of BOOTLEG and "Living In The Grey And Pink" excluding the final tune. Performance of tune of SOFT MACHINE (Kevin Ayers). "Nine Feet Underground" is performed, and lyrics are slightly different. The fan is a content that finishes being satisfactory.

1 stars This review is more a warning than a review.

This live recording is a radio-show from the late sixties, taped by a listener and then released some years ago. The result is a bootleg quality sound, unworthy of this great band. Thankfully; the same show and another show was released last year as "The Show Of Our Lives: Caravan At The BBC 1968-1975". That one is recommended; not this album. There is nothing wrong with the good songs, btw. The songs are all great. If you can live with the sound, this album is good. But still; this album is a waste of money compared to the cleaned up version on "The Show Of Our Lives: Caravan At The BBC 1968-1975". Go for this compilation instead and leave this album on the shelves.
