Canterbury Sans Frontières: Episode 11

Canterbury Sans Frontières: Episode 11

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Richard Coughlan, Caravan's drummer since 1968, who passed away in December shortly before the last episode went out. The centrepiece is an hour of the finest live Caravan recordings I could find from '68-'75, and although Richard hardly ever played with anyone else, there are a couple of other relevant pieces included in this episode. Also this lunation: Soft Machine at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1970, Yusef Lateef in a club in 1964 Philadelphia, Terry Riley and Don Cherry in 1975 Köln, National Health in the South of France in 1979, a mystery ensemble playing a Kevin Ayers tune at an unknown location in space and time, new stuff from Bristol's Spiro and Canterbury's Koloto, Snarky Puppy, Spirogyra (the good one) and some quintessentially English musick from the 17th century.
