Album of Yesterday

Well, I didn't realize until my head hit the pillow last night that I forgot to do an Album of the Day entry. So, a day late, here it is . . .

Caravan: For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night. Caravan is one of the numerous prog bands than sprung from the Canterbury region of Britain whose style was more jazz influenced than their symphonic cousins. The straight jazz influence is a little less prevalent with Caravan, who at times remind me more of a very British version of the 70s jam band (think The Allman Brothers while drinking tea). Regardless, this album is full of tunes that are at the same time laid back and catchy but also very intense.
