RELEASED AS PART OF THE DECCA LABEL’S 90th ANNIVERSARY  BY UMC 6th September  2019

The English city of Canterbury is home to two highly respected universities,

one of the oldest public schools in Britain and, thanks to its cathedral and

being the seat of the Church of England is at the very heart of English history.

It was, therefore, something of a surprise when a group of musicians associated

with progressive and avant-garde music came to define the sound of the city in

the late 1960s

.

Caravan was formed in Canterbury 1968 by Pye Hastings (guitar/ vocals), Dave

Sinclair (keyboards), Richard Sinclair (bass/vocals) and Richard Coughlan (drums). Following the release of an impressive self-titled debut on Verve, in 1970

the band signed to Decca’s Deram label where they would record some of the most progressive and elegant music across the decade. Albums such as In The Land Of Grey And Pink, If I Could Do It All Over Again and ‘For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night’ cemented Caravan’s reputation as kings of the Canterbury Sound.

 

This impressive release collates their Decca/Deram years complete with bonus tracks

and rare live recordings in a striking 9CD Box Set released to coincide with Decca’s 90th

Anniversary
