Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Sean Trane
3 stars a reworking of the classics just for fun but by no means indispensible. For fans only, but some of the comments in the sleevenotes are hilarious . Also , there is a clever but shorter version of Richard with an almost rap-like guitar. Another remark , the cover of my copy is the creampuff one and it is simply the ugliest cover ever . If you get lucky , get the second edition with a far better cover and a bonus track

3 stars Caravan do it all over again

Quite why Caravan felt the need to record many of their old classics again is open to speculation. One could be cynical and suggest it was because their newer material wasn't as strong, and there is probably an element of truth there. Whatever the reasons, this is an interesting and enjoyable collection, if rather indulgent.

Most of the tracks do sound different, some more than others. "For Richard" is heavily abbreviated (although not quite to the extent the track listing above suggests), while "Disassociation" suffers from being disassociated from the rest of "Nine feet underground". "Place of my own" benefits from the reworking, as to a lesser extent does "If I could do it all over again..", which appears twice on the updated CD.

It's hard to recommend this album other than to Caravan fans, as others would be better off investigating the albums which originally contained these tracks. For Caravan fans though, it is indeed recommended. (Jeremy Clarkson, who wrote the sleeve notes, is a motoring journalist in the UK, and his own number one fan!).
