Metropolis Studios, London, December 4th 2010. Studio A measures 98 square metres and contains six musicians, a five man film crew and 120 fans. This equation adds up to one electric performance for Canterbury s finest Caravan. Pye Hastings, Geoffrey Richardon, Jim Leverton, Jan Schelhaas and new drummer Mark Walker are joined by retired percussionist and founder member Richard Coughlan to deliver an accomplished set that includes many favourites from their 25 album, 40+ year career. This DVD captures the magic of that concert, together with band interviews and more. In the interviews following the concert, Richardson (a virtuoso on the garden shears, among many other instruments) compares the experience to playing the Marquee on Wardour Street. While lead singer, principal songwriter and guitarist Hastings, who debuts two excellent new compositions here, claims Caravan playing live is "pure happiness, it cures all aches and pains." This is such an enjoyable

Membership of Caravan has morphed over many years, with Pye Hastings being the only original member left. Each new member has brought their own influence to bear on the vast back catalogue of music, but importantly, Pye continues to write material as fresh as it was in 1968.
I was rather sceptical that drummer Richard Coughlan could ever be replaced. However, I am absolutely delighted that Mark Walker has thoroughly proved me wrong, playing with much skill and enthusiasm. 'Old boys' Geoff Richardson, Jan Shelhaas and Jim Leverton continue push the boundaries whilst staying true to the original.
This album in particular conveys the enjoyment the band obviously have when working together.
Particular favourites on here are the classics of Memory Lain, Hugh, Headloss and Nine Feet Underground. Give Me More (from their 1977 Better By Far album) also has its first ever live performance.
The production of the CD, and in particular the DVD is up there with the very best.
A must have for Caravan fans, and a great addition for any serious music collection.
