Caravan - Live at Metropolis Studios, London CD + DVD
Nice to see some totally new material here!
"Metropolis Studios, London, December 4th 2010. Studio A measures 98 square metres and contains six musicians, a five man film crew and 120 fans. This equation adds up to one electric performance for Canterbury’s finest – Caravan.
Pye Hastings, Geoffrey Richardon, Jim Leverton, Jan Schelhaas and new drummer Mark Walker are joined by retired percussionist and founder member Richard Coughlan to deliver an accomplished set that includes many favourites from their 25 album, 40+ year career. This DVD captures the magic of that concert, together with band interviews and more.
In the interviews following the concert, Richardson (a virtuoso on the garden shears, among many other instruments) compares the experience to playing the Marquee on Wardour Street. While lead singer, principal songwriter and guitarist Hastings, who debuts two excellent new compositions here, claims Caravan playing live is "pure happiness, it cures all aches and pains." A superb live performance from one of the great British "progressive" rock groups in two formats, augmented by band interviews.
Featuring sparkling renditions of stellar Caravan numbers such as And I Wish I Were Stoned, Golf Girl, Hello Hello and the epic Nine Feet Underground.
Deluxe digipack with 12-page illustrated booklet and extensive liner notes."
