商品説明

For their first album, Caravan was surprisingly strong. While steeped in the same British psychedelia that informed bands such as Love Children, Pink Floyd, and Tomorrow, Caravan relates a freedom of spirit and mischief along the lines of Giles, Giles & Fripp or Gong. The band's roots can be traced to a British blue-eyed soul combo called the Wilde Flowers. Among the luminaries to have passed through this Caravan precursor were Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers, and Hugh Hopper and Brian Hopper (pre-Soft Machine, naturally). By the spring of 1968, Caravan had settled nicely into a quartet consisting of Pye Hastings (guitar/bass/vocals), Richard Coughlan (drums), David Sinclair (organ/vocals), and Richard Sinclair (bass/guitar/vocals). Inspired by the notoriety and acclaim that Soft Machine encountered during the burgeoning days of London's underground scene, Caravan began a residency at the Middle Earth club. Additionally, the band was shopping a homemade demo tape around to local record companies. Before long, entrepreneur Tony Cox worked out a deal for them to record on the newly founded U.K. division of the Verve label. Caravan's self-titled debut is equally as inventive and infinitely more subtle than the Soft Machine's Volume One or Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Two of the album's best tunes -- the ethereal Place of My Own was backed with the dreamlike Magic Man -- were issued as the band's first single. Those tracks accurately exemplify the subtle complexities that Caravan would hone to great effect on later recordings. The same can also be said for album cuts such as Love Song With Flute and the extended nine-minute Where but for Caravan Would I? The latter title aptly exemplifies Caravan's decidedly less than turgid attitude toward themselves -- a refreshing contrast from the temperamental and serious Art School approach adopted by Pink Floyd and the Moody Blues. The mono and stereo mixes of the long-player are striking in their disparities. The stereo mix is at times opaque and virtually swallows the vocals most specifically on the tracks Policeman and Grandma's Lawn. Otherwise, there are numerous additional nuances that discern the two. The single version of Hello Hello is also included as a bonus. This track was the follow-up 45 to Place of My Own and would appear in a slightly different form on their next LP, If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You. Potential consumers should note that the sound quality on this package is indescribably better than the HTD Records 1996 CD pressing. ~ Lindsay Planer, Rovi

70年代のバンドを知る者にとっては少しソフトな印象を受けるものの、これはこれで60年代サウンドならではの歌心満載で魅力的。

たしかにちょっと荒っぽいというか未成熟な感じはしますが、世間で言われるほどひどいアルバムではないと私は思います。なかなかにスモーキーな、サイケポップ。ワイルド・フラワーズの音楽に実は一番近接した作品ではないでしょうか。モノ&ステレオの反復攻撃を是非お試しください。

何故かプログレファンには無視されているデビュー作。プログレ的展開はあまり感じられないもののメロディの良さは既に確立されています。特にM4は名曲。

Caravan (UK)

Caravan were one of the more formidable progressive rock acts to come out of England in the 1960s, though they were never much more than a very successful cult band at home, and, apart from a brief moment in 1975, barely a cult band anywhere else in the world. They only ever charted one album in their first six years of activity, but they made a lot of noise in the English rock press, and their fo
