Do you know which is the original cover ? My old LP copy is from MGM (blue
label), and the cover is all red and yellow, a drawing of a car (...avan?).
Also, it has an insert with the lyrics, but I think it's a copy from the
original one (it's marked 2/2 in the bottom, and there's no 1/2...)

As I said, the insert brings all the lyrics. I may transcribe them, if you
want, when I have some spare time. Any preferences ?

All the best,

I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. I read about the upcoming concerts and drool. There are many times I wish I lived in Europe. We have a big music scene here, but alas, mostly the enervating "alternative" crap, geared for lusty teenagers. Anyway, I was truly interested about the possible Quiet Sun cd coming out: one of the truly great releases in the '70s!

Subject: Dave Stewart autobiography
Date: Fri, 4 Oct 1996 12:02:58 +0000

Some of you will already have noticed that Dave Stewart's autobiography
has been removed from CALYX. I removed it following a request from Dave,
whom I've just had on the phone, and gave the following explanation.
He is actually planning to write a book where all or part of these writings
will probably be used. While he has been, and still is, glad to give out
photocopies of this, he prefers it not to be as widely available as being on
the WWW makes it be. As a result, he granted me permission to use the facts,
but not the (typically stewartish and funny) way he presented them. This is
of course perfectly understandable, and I am glad this removal may somehow
pave the way for more great writing from Dave (one of the latest examples of
which being his sleeve notes for In Cahoots' "Recent Discoveries").

Dave also wanted to know if I would be interested to get Stewart-Gaskin info
although the duo is not strictly 'Canterbury' music. I said yes of course,
knowing many of you (including, of course, myself) are interested in the
current activities of our keyboard hero and one of our favourites Northettes.
Therefore we should have regular updates on this subject.

Finally, Dave mentioned that a UK version of "Missing Pieces" would soon be
made available on Voiceprint, with a slightly different cover design.


From: Ralph Cross (c/o WR)
Subject: More on the re-issue of Caravan's first album (on HTD)
Date: Fri, 4 Oct 1996 12:14:58 +0000

[The following is an excerpt from Ralph Cross' excellent Caravan newsletter,
issue 4 / september 1996 - AL]

HTD Records have acquired the rights from Polygram to release Caravan's
very first self-titled album (although it apparently cost an arm and a leg
to achieve that). Barry Riddington of HTD tells me it will be digitally
remastered and the original picture sleeve used. Pye has written sleeve
notes which describe the early days living a spartan life in tents etc. !

Apparently, there is an 'unofficial' CD copy of the first album doing the
rounds, taken straight from the vinyl album. It is of inferior quality and
is identifiable by the front cover artwork which is a copy of the 1972
reissue of the first album i.e. a drawing of a caravan.

With the new of the long-awaited re-release, I asked Pye about the recollections of that first album. "It actually came out in early 1969. I remember taking the cover into hospital where my wife Cathy had just given birth to our son Julian. It was a very special moment to have your own ideas and music on an album and on sale in the shops. I also remember I was wearing pink flares as I walked into the ward with the sleeve under my arm !". The front cover showing the band members dressed in robes on columns was taken by photographer Richard Zeff. The sleeve notes were by Miles who wrote for the International Times. The album was produced by Tony Cox at Advision Studios in Bond Street. "We were pleased to see the album out but we were rather disappointed with the production - the mix was covered in echo. We didn't use Tony for the next album !".

Although the songs were credited to all the band, clearly each one had its main writer, with other members contributing. The line-up was of course Richard Coughlan, Dave Sinclair, Richard Sinclair and Pye Hastings with the help of Jimmy Hastings. The original bass player in Caravan was to be Dave Lawrence of the Wilde Flowers but after a week of rehearsals it was clear this wouldn't work out and Richard Sinclair, was was just leaving Art College, was signed up. At first Pye played bass on Richard's songs with Richard on guitar, and vice-versa. Pye adds, "He was so much better on bass than me that I put my foot down and insisted he played bass all the time !".

I am pleased to say Pye could recall the inspiration behind some of the tracks, so here goes :

Place Of My Own
"I was the main writer for this. I'd just managed to get a flat of my own : up until then I'd been sharing other people's houses and rooms. At last I was standing on my own two feet and this song was a reflection of that. Dave Sinclair came up with the middle solo idea".

"Traffic, a band I really admired, had a single out called "Hole in My Shoe". My response to the style of this song was to write this. It was my climbing on their bandwagon !".

"That was Richard's track and I can't tell you where the idea came from. I played bass with Richard on lead guitar".

Love Song With Flute
"My brother Jimmy was a jazz snob ! He used to despair at my musical direction, my songwriting and my guitar playing, but he agreed to help out on the album. I told him this song was a 'bossa nova' - which it was, but it began in 6/8 time. When he heard the opening ideas he started as usual to talk down to me and said, 'Hey this isn't a bossa nova', but when he heard the rest he enthused, 'I really like this, who wrote it ?'. When I said it was me his jaw dropped : I'd got my big brother at last ! He then contributed a brilliant flute solo to accompany the track".

Cecil Rons
"This was a play on words. I knew this girl Cathy Ross who hung around the Beehive Club. She came from Folkestone. We got on really well and I used to spend hours talking to her. She was involved in organising gigs at Folkestone Town Hall and she wrote to Hugh Hopper offering the Wilde Flowers a date there - I was in the band at that time. The signature on the letter looked exactly like 'Cecil Rons' rather than Cathy Ross. For some reason we all found the name Cecil Rons rather amusing and it inspired me to write this nonsense song for the first Caravan album a short time later. I ended up marrying Cathy of course !".

Magic Man
"I can't remember the inspiration for this".

Grandma's Lawn
"This was Richard's song so I played bass".

Where But For Caravan Would I
"I wrote this song in 11/8. The point of the title was that I had an active band that seemed to be going places. Without this band, where would I be ?".

I recently wrote to you inquiring about U.S. sources for Canterbury releases
and, although I didn't intend it as a posting for WR, you included it there.
Good thing too.  I heard from three very kind and helpful Cant fans who provided very useful information (of course).  I have thanked each one of them personally, but I also want to acknowledge them "publicly" in your next issue...  Jose Douglas, Paul Barros, and John Reilly...you are princes.  And
Aymeric...you're a king, at least in terms of keeping prog rock fans reliably
informed.  My sincerest thanks!

In addition to my UK pressing of the first album (which has the later cartoon cover), I also have a Japanese LP (original pedastal cover) with lyric sheet. Unfortunately, I've noticed a lot of errors in lyric transcriptions of Japanese albums over the years. I think that if original lyric sheets or sheet music was not available, someone (with English as a second language possibly) just listened to the songs and transcribed what they *thought* was being sung. Also, the last track on Side 1 - "Cecil Runs" - is entitled "Cecil Rons" on the Jap LP (and the lyrics also reflect this mistake). It's likely pointless for me to transcribe erroneous lyrics... plus, I don't have the time right now, anyway.


[As mentioned above in Pye Hastings' interview with Ralph Cross, "Cecil Rons"
is indeed the right spelling, although this may seem strange. Hasn't anyone
told you how Japanese people care about such details ? Concerning transcrip-
tions, I think there are enough people on this list with English as mother
tongue to correct any possible mistakes... - AL]

Dear friend were you in Harlingen two weeks ago? And was it you who knew which Robert Wyatt song Richard Sinclair was singing when Heather Kinnear asked you. Well I was the guy who asked that question.

[I *was* in Harlingen but I'm not the person you're referring to. Maybe
he's among the readers of WR. Furthermore, the part of the event I attended
did not feature any Robert Wyatt song. Maybe Richard sang this song (was it
"Calyx" ?) during the "Church" concert with Dave Rees-Williams on church
organ ? Anyway, I was asked for the lyrics of "A.A. Man" when Richard wanted to cover it with Pleegzusters but they weren't on Calyx. They played it anyway, and Richard seemed to know most of the lyrics. Well, at least as much as he generally remembers the lyrics to his songs... - AL]

P.S. Last weekend I was in London were I attended a gig from Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin. I also met the duo backstage. It really was great.

I think the version you refer to is by the group Material, from their second
album, which came out around 1982.  I think the title of the album was "One
Down."  Don Cherry played on this album.  From what I remember, the vocalist
was not Annette Peacock -- it was Nona Hendryx (from Labelle).

More details on the new In Cahoots album, taken from various sources including Facelift [pre-release review by Nick Loebner] and the Musart website.

- The line-up for that (and the upcoming London gig opening for Caravan) is
the sextet of Phil Miller (guitar), Elton Dean (saxello), Jim Dvorak (trum-
pet), Peter Lemer (keyboards), Fred T. Baker (bass) and Pip Pyle (drums).

- The album is entitled "Parallel" and will be released by Crescent Discs
sometime this month.

- It contains six new "progressive jazz" compositions from Phil Miller "written within the last six months and displaying a wide range of moods" : Miller considers two of these compositions ("Parallel" and "Half Life") to be among his very best ever.

- The title track features some fuzz-bass playing by Fred Baker in the vein of Hugh Hopper's (!).

GRITS "Rare Birds" (Cuneiform 55012)
A quartet that existed from 1970-80, Grits were the most locally popula Washington D.C. area "progressive rock" band, playing out constantly.

Excellent live recording from the single best performance that I ever saw the band perform (& I saw them many, many times).

This features long tracks & is more overtly "progressive" than "As The World Grits", & includes the 25' opus "Rare Birds", among others.

Dear Aymeric,

I live in Binghamton NY.  I suggested to the Binghamton University concert board to put on a Gong concert for their spring US tour.  The guy didn't think they'd draw enough to make the tickets affordable.  The last few Gong tours, they played in Cleveland, OH, NYC, and Boston, all inconvenient venues given my work schedule and all.  There must be lots of other upstate New Yorkers in my predicament who'd really love to see Gong live.  Put this out over What's Rattlin' and see if I'm not the only one stranded out here in Gong free land.  I got to see Daevid and Kevin Ayers in Rochester a few years ago, and folks came from PA and all over NY (and I had a friend drive 7 HOURS from Amherst MA) to see it.

Maybe someone in Ithaca or Syracuse would know a way to get them to make a stop in this neck of the woods.  How about Albany?  If you're interested, I'm out here in the Triple Cities, and willing to do some legwork to get the Teapots to land!!!

Catch you on the flip side,

Jim Powers

So sorry to bother you, I was given your name by Phil Howitt at Facelift.  In 1971 I spent the summer in London and became friends with Darryl Way  (Curved Air, Wolf).  As time and miles went by, as they are supposed to, we drifted apart.  I would very much like to tell him that he has always been fondly in my thoughts and that I hope he is happy.  I was able to find out via an Internet search that he most recently directed the London Symphony Orchestra.  My obstacle is where to reach him.  Phil thought that perhaps you may know of an address e-mail or snail mail that I may send him a message or, if you knew him could deliver this message to him. Your attention and assistance would be
greatly appreciated.

My name is Barbara (Sosinski) Clay and I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA.  My job is with the DuPont Company in Wilmington, Delaware where I prepare presentions for upper management. If I can be a resouce to you in some way I would like to oblige.
