2 stars This is a definite recommendation for collectors only. Appreciating all that Richard Sinclair has done musically in his past, his contributions to classic sounds within Caravan, Hatfield and the North and some may even argue Camel, as an individual artist or solo artist on Caravan Of Dreams he fails to deliver. There is the unmistakeable Canterbury feel, the musicians hearts are all in the right places but at times the lyrics are so inept and lame they make ' Golf Girl' sound like ' Stairway To Heaven'. The album overall falls into major easy listening category with no real progressive testers, if anything simple Herne Bay pub songs.I do like ' Going For A song' and the live ' Felafel Shuffle', even the quirkiness of a loved one on ' Heather'. A great cast of musicians too, Andy Ward on drums, the irreplacebale Jimmy Hastings and cousin David Sinclair on keyboards. The bass lines delivered by Richard Sinclair as usual so distinct to his style of playing. Enjoyable at times but for Canterbury fans only.
