Caravan is the debut album by the British Canterbury scene progressive rock band Caravan. It was released in October 1968. The album was the result of the band borrowing equipment from Soft Machine (who were touring the . at the time with Jimi Hendrix and using his backline), producing "an unusually mature musical statement". The album was released in stereo and mono, in both the United States and United Kingdom, but failed to reach chart hit status.

I would not say that The Album is a significant drop down from the level of 1977 - the only difference is that here, there is not even a single superficial attempt to retain the progressive legacy of classic Caravan, but then, this is not necessarily a bad thing: from a certain point of view, it makes them more honest about what they are. trying to do. The problem is that Caravan as a bona fide pop band, with no additional ambition, is a suicidal proposal - they never had the cockiness, the energy, the great guitar tones, the vivaciousness that should go along with a great pop band

The Album is unfortunately another below average album by Caravan and itīs hard not to get the thought that they really didnīt have much more to offer to the world of music at this point in their career. I must say that I had expected much more from the band after a three year recording break. Caravan entered the 80's with this Disco-infected Pop Rock album, simply titled The Album. The first two tracks are upbeat, simple Pop-Disco tunes that feel void of inspiration, but with Watcha Gonna Tell Me there is at least some first indication that they still had at least some progressive aspirations.

Released in 1980, this was Caravan's nineth studio album. It was 43 minutes long. The original CD was released in 1990 and the sound quality was fair, with poor dynamic range. So, a remastered version would be welcomed. The LP and original CD were never released in the US. This is a remastered version, with 2 additional tracks. Total time is now up to 53 minutes. Note that some songs on this album and the next album, Back to Front were combined and released as Canterbury Collection. 7 people found this helpful.
