Caravan - 'Songs For The Oblivion Fisherman' (Hux)

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The title of this release should have simply been 'BBC Sessions' to avoid any confusion.I mean,an old fan of the group COULD mistake this for a 'new' band studio release.Either way,'Songs For...' should satisfy any Caravan follower,as it has a total of twelve tracks that are either in the studio,a radio broadcast or performed live(seemingly without an audience).All tunes come from the 1970-74 era.To me,Caravan has always seemed to have been,if you would call it that,sophisticated progressive.Tunes that I thought stood out are "If I Could Do It","In The Land Of Grey And Pink" and their fifteen minute signature epic "For Richard"(possibly Caravan's best song ever).If you want to explore the band's history a bit,you might want to consider checking out their older material first,lp's like their self-titled debut,'Cunning Stunts' and 'Girls Who Grow Plump...'.Should appeal to fans of Gentle Giant,Soft Machine,The Strawbs and Camel."
