Do you have any idea where I could download that album? Mediafire, etc.

I spent a week trying to remember the name of this caravan song

"With an ear to the ground you can make it / Martinian / Only cox / Reprise"

Somehow it kept evading play on shuffle. That's one of my favourites I'd say. Caravan is good music man, good for chilling out, have a smoke, have a nap. Easy going, top band.

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.
I've only heard one song off it: Head Above The Clouds. I think Caravan are much better live than on record. I have a few boots and some of their recorded stuff and I always go back to the live boots. The sound is much more dynamic. On record they sound very easy-listening, to me anyway.

I'd have loved to hear 'Nine Feet Underground' live at some point, but I dunno if there's any footage from the early 70's of them performing it.

I have several boolegs from recent years and Nine Feet Underground is amazing live. There's a great one from the Baja Prog Festival, Mexico 2005, where they just absolutely kill it!!

This is only the last 10:00 of it, from a different show though.

Listening to In the Land of Grey and Pink today and what a delightful album it is. The first side contains the typical whimsical Canterbury sound of Caravan and the b-side the stunning 22 min "Nine Feet Underground" I now rate this song as one of the great prog epics.

The 40th year anniversary release of In the Land of Grey and Pink was released in May earlier this year. Turned out to be this year's most exciting release for me.
