Canterbury Comes to London
Review by Steve Alspach
Though not really recording anymore, Caravan still gets together for the occasional prog rock fest or a concert. This concert, from London's Astoria Theater in September 1997, shows the band to be quite sharp when the need arises.

Songs for Oblivion Fishermen
Review by Steve Alspach
Caravan was one of the bands to come out of the Canterbury progressive scene of the late 1960s. The band's early output could cause one to roll one's eyes, such as the reference to Boy Scouts as "grumbly grimblies" and the gargling vocals on "In the Land of Grey and Pink."

Caravan - Live at NEARfest, 2002
Review by Stephen Ellis
I had never paid much attention to that "Canterbury" sound so I was very unfamiliar with Caravan. I had been sent a Canterbury sampler prior to NF by a dear friend so I had heard some Caravan and had some idea of what to expect.

Delivery - Fools Meeting
Review by Gary Hill
Featuring members of such bands as Camel, Gong and Soft Machine in musical performances that predate those bands, this disc shows the talent of a very early progressive rock band. Delivery was rooted as heavily in the hippie psychedelia as they were in what was to become prog, but they certainly showed plenty of prog muscle.

Various Artists - The Strange Sound of Cthulhu: Music Inspired by the Writings of H.P. Lovecraft written by Gary Hill
Review by Lisa Palmeno
A bit of an editorial comment needs to be made here. Since the person you see as "ed." - that's "editor" not "Ed" - is the author of this book, this is a bit awkward in a way. I had considered not covering this book at MSJ, but that seems unfair as we do provide promotion in the form of reviews for other authors.
