All the classic early Caravan tracks are present, including "For Richard", "The love in your eye", "A hunting we shall go" etc. The recording quality is good, and the performance accomplished. For me though, there's nothing here which isn't as good if not better on the original studio albums. If you're a fan of Caravan, this is probably worth having otherwise stick to the studio albums. For a unique Caravan live experience, I would recommend the "New Symphonia" album, which sees many of the tracks orchestrated.

While this specific album was only ever released in France, it has more recently been made generally available under the title "Live at Fairfield Halls", on which the tracks have been re-sequenced into the correct running order as originally performed, and the song "Chance of a lifetime" appended to "Be alright".
