JDIZZY's 365 # 225: In The Land Of Grey & Pink

In The Land Of Grey & Pink - Caravan (1971)

Nobody did soft prog better than Caravan. One of the originators of the Canterbury Sound, they explored jazz, rock and psychedelics on their first two albums, but embraced folk much stronger on this title track of their third. Greatest Hits packages are usually the way to see if you will appreciate an artist's work. In The Land Of Grey & Pink is quite substantial as an introduction to Caravan's completely distinctive sound. Grab Waterloo Lily, Cunning Stunts along with the previously mentioned duo as well. You'll want more after this little masterpiece, I can feel it.
