    ProgressiveRock :
    Caravan’s fourth album was a bit of a departure: new keyboard player Steve Miller had previously been in Carol Grime’s Delivery. Having a background in British blues, Richard Sinclair brought him to "jazz" up the Caravan sound. "Waterloo Lily", a song about a heavy-set hooker, would be one of the last songs Richard Sinclair would sing with the band. It’s a fairly simple number, but Miller’s extended electric piano solo signaled the change. The next track, "Nothing At All", is extremely out of character for the band. Not to its discredit, some strong soloing by Steve’s brother guitarist Phil Miller and trumpeter Lol Coxhill grace the track. Miller’s "It’s Coming Soon" is similarly blues based. The second side is book ended by some more conventional Caravan numbers, but its highlight is the lengthy "The Love In Your Eye." Much in the tradition of "For Richard", the track has several instrumental sections that seam together effortlessly, and as to be expected, some fine soloing too. Producer David Hitchcock suggested the string accompaniment and fortunately, Decca anted up. The album remains a controversial one in the Caravan catalog, but worthy nonetheless. The band toured the UK in the summer but by the end both Miller and Sinclair had left the band. A short lived lineup with Derek Austin on keyboards and Stuart Evans on bass toured Australia in early 1973 but never recorded.
