For those who can’t wait for the Snapper boxset in November 2020 – Universal are releasing a really nice 9 CD boxset this September.

This 9 CD Box Set collects all of Caravan’s Decca/ Deram albums (including bonus material) as well as Fairfield Halls 1974 and ‘The show of our lives’ -Live at the BBC 1970-1975.
It looks like there isn’t anything that hasn’t already been released before when the remasters were done a few years ago. However, it really is a lovely boxset with gatefold sleeves and booklet.
RRP about £66; so good value as well!
