Twenty six years after buying this album I get the chance to share my thoughts with the world! I'm a newcomer to the internet and was just browsing around when I came upon this fabulous site. Caravan are one of the bands from my 'yoof' and none of their albums means more to me than this one. I defy any 17 year old listener not to see themselves as the man 'standing on a golf course'. The rest of the album whizzes by until you are confronted by 'Nine Feet Underground': no way a Genesis track...this track needs a lot more sense to make you feel part of it. I own over three thousand separate albums, CDs and tapes and this track has always been TOP FIVE of ALL tracks of ALL time. I love it: the story, the music, the atmosphere, the sheer emotion Pye and the group create. I thank God I was lucky to be 17 when I first heard this because you HAVE to be 17 to feel it!!

Before I mention the album, I suggest you look up all reviews by this twerp called 'The Evil Hippy'. You'll see that each 'review' is little more than an excuse to 'run off at the mouth'. He 'reviews' genres of music that he says he does not like. He does not seem to understand the use of capital letters at the beginning of sentences and, generally, appears to be self-publicising troll. Read his 'review' in that context and you'll rush out and buy 'In The Land of Grey and Pink' and be glad that you did so.

The music is mostly gentle, wonderfully melodic and captures an era wehere musicians were free - nay, encouraged, to try something new. Each Caravan album (after the first) stood on the shoulders of its predecessor and jumped from there.

This is an album by skilled musicians who played well together and who, despite what the twerp would have you believe, wrote great songs.

This is uniquely English rock music from 1971. Side Two of the original vinyl (track 5 onwards on the CD) is a mostly instrumental and virtually seamless sequence of some of the most melodic rock you will hear anywhere. The keyboard playing which dominates this and the other tracks on the album is outstanding (even if it does sound a bit like a 'stylophone' in places). 'Winter Wine' is my favourite track of all time, by anyone. The only bummer on the album is 'Love To Love You', but its thankfully quite short. A classic.

Format: Audio CD
This is a very creative album from Progressive Rock band Caravan. The album is a very English classic pop album with a great deal of originality. The album was released in 1971.
Caravan was a leading figure in what was known as the "Canterbury sound". This is a combination of music styles including Jazz, classical and traditional influences. It is easily a Progressive Rock album.
The project has five important parts with the last part "Nine feet Underground" lasting over 20 minutes. The whole album has complex sounds. There is a fairy, dream like set of themes with very original lyrics and strong instrumentation and arrangements.
The album has the classic feel of the hippy, drug-induced influences of the late 1960s and early 1970s with wonderful pictorial imagery.
If you like the wide range of Progressive Rock band influences and Rock groups from the likes of Procal Harum, Yes, Pink Floyd, Wishbone Ash, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Jefferson Airplane etc then you will like this.
It is clear that the musicians are all very professional. The whole band has created something special here. This is a great release with good strong and clear sound on a classic album,

Format: Audio CD
This remains a funny wee album. Naff lyrics (think Tolkein on acid) but they kind of work because the music is such good quality pop. What I mean is I can have it on in the background and there is enough going on to make it interesting. Good musicians and an eclectic mix of styles make it a bit of a bubbling brook. It ends with some very dark, rock like boogie (last part of "Nine Feet Underground"). Can't say anything else of Caravan did the business for me, but this warm bath of an album and can stay in the collection. If you are a fan of early seventies pop that is not bubblegum (although "Golf Girl" gets close), then give this a listen.
