Collection of bad songs 21 April 2012
By kireviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title is appropriate, because at this time, Caravan had become Pye Hasting's band. He wrote all the tracks on this album, except one. And the album is dominated by Hastings sound and vocals. The album consists of mostly shorter songs (around 3 to 6 minutes) and is 50 minutes long.
Note that this album has been re-issued with a different cover than what is shown here. If you buy this one, I don't know what you get.

This time the group includes Pye Hastings and Richard Coughlin (as always), David Sinclair, Geoff Richardson and Jimmy Hastings. But, Sinclair and Richardson have very little impact on this album. There is none Richardson's viola and the rest of his playing is relegated to the background. Sinclair's one composition, Traveling Ways, is one of the worst things he has ever written. Only Jimmy Hastings's flute and saxophone are featured beyond Pye Hastings's guitar work. And, for some reason, Pye Hastings never really opens up on guitar.

Other than Jimmy Hastings's playing at the end of some so of the songs, there is no emotion or energy on this album. The songs are just boring and tedious. But, Jimmy Hastings does have some wonderful moments.

There are a few good songs, like Emily, Don't Want Love, and It's Not Real.

After this album was released, Caravan went on a tour to support it. There is a CD from that tour called Live In London at the Astoria (or some variation...it has been released with several different titles and covers). I didn't like the live album either. There is also a video of the concert, but I haven't seen it. A better live album to get is called simply, Caravan Live and is from 3 years earlier and features the complete original band.
