Caravan's Pye Hastings Disappointed With Reissue
He's not a fan of last year's In the Land of Grey And Pink rereleaseHastings has revealed that he wasn't included in decisions about what ended up on last year's expanded release.
Hastings tells DPRP (via Classic Rock Magazine): "I was consulted about it by Mark Powell and asked if I would like to be involved, and of course I said yes – but that was the last I heard of it until after it was finished.
"I think Mark did a very good job on behalf of Universal Records in researching and putting together the whole project. The presentation and the artwork are great.
"But the addition of the outtakes and different versions, for me, leave something to be desired.
"Executive decisions were made at the time to create what was perceived to be the best combination of songs. To add in different versions of songs, that may well have musical errors or just inferior playing on them, is not something I really welcome.”
Caravan are heading out on tour in the UK in January. Tickets are on sale from the links below.
