Worth buying, and not just for the "completist" collector (like me :o))
Caravan's exhausting gigging schedule meant that Hastings only found time to compose 2 of the 7 tracks here; 'Stuck in a Hole' is a bouncy 'pop' song whilst 'No Backstage Pass' is a superb ballad - definitely the classiest song of the album for me. The David Sinclair/John Murphy multi-part epic 'The Dabsong Conshirtoe' takes up most of the second half of proceedings and, although somewhat unwieldy, does have some fine instrumental passages as well as some lovely vocals from Hastings.
Whilst this is not Caravan's finest hour, 'Cunning Stunts' is still fairly enjoyable and I would say it is worth buying at a reasonably low price after you have discovered the delights of their previous albums e.g 'In The Land Of Grey And Pink' and 'For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night'.
Always brilliant some interesting and typically Canterbury.Brilliant live as well. Could't get enough of it.

An additional cd of a band I did not follow way back when. The Dabsong Conshirtoe makes it worthwhile and the other songs are interesting English prog rock with a sense oh humour.Published on 26 Sept. 2013 by Mr. Raymond G. Hogan
