Notes

A blend of melody and imaginative improvisation was at the heart of the music of Caravan, one of the best bands born out of the famed ‘Canterbury Scene’ in the early Seventies. ‘Cunning Stunts’ was the cheekily named seventh album by the group founded by singer and guitarist Pye Hastings.

The single track ‘Stuck In A Hole’ is included among the seven tracks (that also boasts the six part extended work ‘Dabsong Conshirtoe’). ‘Stunts’, first released in 1975, was a Top 50 hit in the UK. It was also successful in Germany and in America, where it proved an important chart entry for a group that has since enjoyed a cult following.
