4.0 out of 5 stars Caravan Live At The Bloomsbury Theatre 2003 8 July 2007
Format:DVD
I purchased this set awhile ago but thought I'd leave a review as I've just recently watched it again.

The first thing that struck me on seeing this for a second time is the superlative musicianship throughout the concert. Unlike many other groups of a similar age returning to some of their old chestnuts, these modern performances are just as good if not slightly better than the originals - with a couple of new numbers thrown in as well. They must have put in a lot of practice (they were also at the end of a tour as well) and the choice of material is also excellent including 'Golf Girl', 'Memory Lain Hugh/Headloss', 'Nightmare' & my personal favourite 'Nine Feet Underground'. Even though it lasts for over 20 minutes it doesn't seem so as in reality it's several shorter songs strung together.

Special mention must go to Doug Boyle for his fantastic guitar work, Jan Schelhaas on keyboards and...well, everybody played well !

"But why no 5 stars?", you may ask. As a previous reviewer has pointed out Pye Hastings seems to be struggling with some of his vocal parts. As you may know he has quite a soft singing voice and because none of us are getting any younger he's finding it hard to reach some notes he may have found easy when a man in his twenties. That's not putting him down or anything, just that he may need to rethink his vocal approach to his songs as, for example, Roger Daltrey has done with the rejuvenated Who (If you've seen any of their recent live performances you'll hear that he's adapted his singing style slightly so he can cope with things.)

Anyway, it's just a thought. Hope you don't give me a left hook if you're reading this, Pye !

3.0 out of 5 stars Caravan - 35th Anniversary Concert 3 April 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With 160 minutes running time on two dvds you get a lot of time for your money. Remembering Caravan from their great performances of the 1970s I was looking forward to this concert but I have to say I was disappointed. Pye Hastings voice seems to have lost something - occasionally the ability to stay in tune. Doug Boyle played very well on guitar as did Jan Schelhaus on keyboards, but the group misses the Sinclair cousins.

A real extravaganza of a concert finally released on DVD! They film is over two hours long & shows them at their best. All those years of practice have really paid off!
This DVD has both acoustic and electric sets and features classic songs such as "The Dog, the Dog, he's at it Again," "Love Song with Flute" and "If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You". The band are really entertaining playing spoons & even a pair of garden shears!
Extras include a funny 1973 promotional video for "The Dog, the Dog, He's at it Again."

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Caravan's hottest Performances 1 Feb 2006
By Stephen K. Piskor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Not much to say except if you are a fan of Caravan, buy this DVD. Good mixture of older and newer material, band plays with a lot of energy and there is a good menu of songs. Sound quality is acceptable, although not up to the standards on some of the newer DVD's. Also, some very enjoyable banter between songs. Only disappointment is there was nothing really unexpected, and Caravan has many live albums out with many of the same songs. Would have been nice to get something a little more unexpected

5.0 out of 5 stars Success, Caravan Style 9 Jan 2007
By Geoffrey R. Teese - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
First off, I'm a huge Caravan fan. I saw their first 2 US tours back in the '70's. I saw them upon their return to the US in twothouusandgodI'moldnow. This DVD is a great show, although the audio is not perfectly mixed, and should be a part of every Caravan collection. Don't put off buying this DVD, do it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Prog-Rock Gem! 12 July 2010
By James G. Moore Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I remember these guys in my early college days, and they appear to still be together. This DVD is from 2003, and on the DVD, they mention that they released a newer album about the time this DVD was packaged and sold. They have a website and one can go to it (type in "Caravan" rock band on Google) and see what they are up to. Jimmy Hastings guests on one song, and he played flute and saxes in the early years on their studio albums. Jimmy has his own band now and tours most of England and the Netherlands. Check out his website! He teams up occasionally with the Sinclair boys and plays in pubs all over the UK. On this DVD, the sound quality is not very good, and one would do well to try to see if Dolby 5.1 will work or else just plain stereo. In any event, everything sounds canned, as if they are not really playing "live," which they are. As an example, the violin is loud, and one cannot hear the nice fretwork the lead player does. So the audio quality is somewhat poor. A suggestion is to crank it up on a decent stereo, try for mono out of any speakers you have set up and go for it. I am amazed at the musicianship and everyone looks as though they are having a great time. The 2nd DVD has interviews of the lads as well as an acoustic set, and keep in mind it is from 2003. Here we are, seven years later, and they still cook for me. Enjoy, especially if you are prog-rock fan.

The music is fine,however the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired.It lacks punch and volume,especially on the drums.
