We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Caravan is the pop side of Soft Machine (see ABO#073). The comparison is not a fortuitous one. In fact Soft Machine and Caravan were born from the same band : The Wilde Flowers. While Ratledge and Wyatt went to create Soft Machine bringing The Wilde Flowers music into a Jazz experience, Pye Hastings and brothers Sinclair made it popier, even if the canterbury sound remains a common ground to both formations. Jazz is no stranger to Caravan : some improvisations are included on almost each of their albums, even if by the year 1975, the music came to be writen as a more classic prog process. Caravan is, as many other Canterbury acts, one of my favourite bands for that reason : making intelligent music affordable to anyone.
