4.0 out of 5 stars Caravan on Radio 1 live in concert, 11 Mar 2004
Having discovered Caravan relatively late, this concert was my first introduction to the group. The four tracks show just how competant a group they are. Whilst they are all live versions of established work (The Dab Song Concerto appart), they are better than the original works as the group are clearly a band that can reproduce their recorded work in a fantastic way live. The tight sound and brilliant vocals make this recording one that any serious Caravan or prog rock fan must have in their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars More - than just another Floyd album, 3 Mar 2004
This review is from: More: (Remastered) (Audio CD)
This was the first Floyd album I ever heard. My cousin had an original vinyl copy, which I recorded onto Reel to Reel tape, as I did not have a record deck.
The "Main Theme" track has always entranced me, as does "Cirrus Minor" and "Cymbaline". This is Floyd at their early best, the album having a diverse mix of music, which shows just how inventive Waters and Gilmore are.
Whilst they went on to have comercial sucess with "Dark Side of the Moon", there experimental roots are best shown in this recording. What a shame that an early track "Embryo" never made it onto an album, apart from a samlper released by EMI, called "A Day in the Country". If you haven't listened to "More", do yourself a favour and find out where Floyd were at their best, doing Film Scores. Also check out "Obsured by Clouds". Again an overlooked Floyd masterpeace.
