Nine Feet and forever rising,
By A Customer
This review is from: In the Land of Grey & Pin (Audio CD)
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!!
