Customer Review

on March 16, 2006
It was 1973, and after the magnificent "Land of Grey and Pink" but less "Caravan-ish" "Waterloo Lily", bassist Richard Sinclair had joined Hatfield and the North to pursue his jazz-rock urges, his cousin and Caravan keyboardist Dave Sinclair had left as well, and all looked pretty depressing. But Dave returned to the fold. In the mean-time, Pye had come up with some fantastic songs and recruited viola player Geoff Richardson (with Caravan to this day) and Jon Perry on bass. The result was "For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night", a brilliant return to form, full of eccentic English prog, accompanied by string and brass sections. The climax of the album - "Pengola / Backwards..." is orchestral prog rock par excellence, the main theme being lifted by Pye from a Mike Ratledge riff off the track "Slightly All The Time" from Soft Machine's "Third" album. For Caravan fans who think the group was nothing without Richard Sinclair, think again after listening to this.
