I love this band. Such an under-appreciated prog group from the 70s. I'd argue In the Land of Grey and Pink is just as good as anything Genesis or Camel put out.

Looking at the poll, though, I definetly get the feeling most people only ever listen to In the Land of Grey and Pink.

Caravan are a seriously kick-ass band.

These guys are great. Both them and Soft Machine are wonderful.

I think we need to do some Caravanning in the prog & fusion album club eventually

edit :

By the way, have anyone here ever heard "The Unauthorized Breakfast Item"? I haven't, so I'd be curious to hear what it's like or how it compares to their earlier stuff.

Their debut album (which is what I voted for in this poll) would be a good choice for the album club. I'm sure everyone has heard In the Land of Grey and Pink (which is kind of obvious by just looking at the poll). I love Canterbury bands. Henry Cow is my favorite one so far.

^I'm not sure I'd consider their debut a prog album, though. In simple terms and not detailing finer details like jazz influence, I roughly consider Caravan to develop like this musically; First psychedelic rock, then prog rock, then pop. My favourite is "For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night" which would definetly fit the club because it's pretty much smack in their prog period.

Then add that one in. I'm a jazz/psychedelic nut so I'd pick their debut, but you're right about For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night being a more progressive album. Is there any chance you can include it into the current vote or are we going to wait until next time?

I won't add it to the current poll (so it won't get a chance to be next week's album), but I'll make sure it's included in next week's poll
