“Progressive Rock,” and “Concept Albums,” have a rich heritage, blending themed music, stretching out the score stylistically beyond the chorus / verse tradition, and incorporated elements of the avant garde, jazz, rock, and classical music. Progressive Rock flowered out of the psychedelic sounds created in the 1960’s, yet it was also a reaction to this same music … and probably the very best of this genre was created by Caravan, who built on the early works done by Pink Floyd, Yes, and King Crimson, who’s albums seemed to be a series of songs strung together, while the songs of Caravan actually seemed to flow in and out of each other.

The music of In The Land Of Gray And Pink is spectacular in its essence, rich with texture, intimate, with swirling melodic melodies of fantasy, which were going to inspire so many in the future. There is no urgency to the music found here, it simply flows over you, engulfs you … the keyboards are unlike anything I had heard before, and when those are mixed with outstanding lyrics, a more then creative bass line, and a crisp clean drum, we were presented with something so totally new, so very tight, something that was nothing short of sublime
