Canterbury Tales

A group of friends in the small british town of Canterbury gave birth to one of the most creative musical scene ever. Here we have two examples, both perfomances are really brilliant. The Caravan's video has a very high resolution with fantastic quality. Kevin plays with his band of great talents like Lol Coxhill, David Bedford and a very young Mike Oldfield on bass guitar.
Soon a post dedicated to The Soft Machine.

Caravan - Golf Girl (1971)
Kevin Ayers And The Whole World - May I (1972)

I have a couple of videos of the Soft Machine playing live for a Dutch TV show in '67...they were a psychedelic/surrealistic trio: Wyatt/Ayers/Ratledge...just be patient...

Thank u all for the appreciation...I think the mentions on *totally fuzzy* gave a good push to this blog :)
