Caravan poursuit sa route avec ce bel album dont la pochette dessinée et pleine de "dogs" est très humoristique; l'équilibre entre les musiciens est exemplaire et les solos, très nombreux ( guitare, basse, piano, synthé, flute, saxo ) agrémentent à merveille les compositions de Hastings dont les mélodies revigorantes ou douces constituent les 46 minutes d'un album presque parfait.
Cela démarre fort avec l'énergique "here i am" riche en clavier et son beau solo de guitare terminé par le violon soft de Richardson. Puis "chiefs and indians" apporte une palette complète de solos sur une belle mélodie. Les 4 morceaux suivants forment une admirable suite progressive longue de 13 minutes ou alternent les moments calmes (le splendide "bobbing wide" tout fluté par Richardson) et les moments plus énergiques ( "come on back", "oik" agémentés de la flute et du saxo de Jimmy Hastings).
Puis "Jack and Jill" nous transporte sur un rythme reggae-jazzy et nous permet enfin d'entendre aboyer le "dog at st Dunstans" après les multiples solos de basse, clavier, violon et flute. On arrive après cela à "can you hear me", très enlevé et composé d'une très belle mélodie chantée par Pye et suivie au clavier de Schelhaas et qui se termine en douceur grâce au violon.
Enfin, "All the way" est une piste de 9 minutes qui débute par du synthé avant de laisser la place aux piano, violon et une remarquable flute omni-présente, le morceau s'achevant en douceur et par un beau sifflotement ...
Il est clair qu'avec cet album d'une grande richesse instrumentale ou les musiciens sont en parfaite harmonie, avec toute leur maturité, on tient là une belle composition(à écouter au casque pour votre plus grand plaisir).

Le coup de mou observé sur Cunning Stunts qui le précède, est reconduit sur ce disque de 1976. Pour la deuxième fois de suite, et alors que le groupe n'arrête pas d'être chamboulé par des départs comme par des arrivées, aucune piste ne permet à l'album un quelconque intérêt. Comme son prédécesseur, il s'écoute, mais génère beaucoup d'ennui. Nous sommes à des années-lumière de If I Could et de In The Land Of Grey And Pink. Caravan a tourné le dos à son flamboyant Canterbury et ce n'est pas le fait que Hastings se soit investi quasi complètement dans l'écriture qui change quoi que ce soit. C'est pâlichon. Le groupe montre des signes de lassitude et commence à être atteint du syndrome de la page blanche tant le tracklisting est décevant et insipide. De temps à autre, une parcelle de magie mélodique ou instrumentale tend à prouver que la bête n'est pas morte et qu'elle sommeille seulement. C'est finalement trop peu, le groupe le payant cash auprès de fans qui, depuis Cunning Stunts, ne croient plus beaucoup en ces gars. Privé de son âme, David Sinclair, Caravan erre. Son remplaçant Jan Schelhaas ne parvient pas à le faire oublier. Même John Wayne n'a pas réussi à sauver ce disque pop léger. Je zappe encore.

HASH(0xa2db3858) étoiles sur 5 A Pleasant Surprise- Canterbury goes pop!! 16 juillet 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
After the weak album "Cunning Stunts", Caravan left the Decca label and their best work behind, or so most histories of the band would tell you.The style they bring to this disc is more pop than you might expect but the songwriting is strong and the atmosphere positive.
These guys sound like they're enjoying themselves and the solo's are short but succinct, there's a loose feeling to the band, with nobody over influencing the music.
Highlights include "Here am I","Chiefs and Indians","A very smelly, grubby little oik","bobbing wide" and the ballad "All the way".
It's very uplifting, with Pye Hastings supplying his usual whimsical lyrics, and newcomer Jan Schelhass filling the shoes of Dave Sinclair suprisingly well.
This was the last album produced by David Hitchcock for the band and his absence is felt with the shaky albums that followed this one.It was a surprise that this album is so enjoyable, and I would recommend this to those who have enjoyed the lighter songs that Pye Hastings has written on other Caravan albums (such as "Love to love you","Aristocracy" and "Surprise, surprise").
Enjoy!!

HASH(0xa2dea51c) étoiles sur 5 good, not great 2 février 2002
Par allismile0 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
it's not a bad album as so many professional reviewers would state-it doesn't seem to campare to their earlier more whimsical and adventurous music. It has tight musicianship and some pretty strong songs. I think that their last really great album was Girls Who Go Plump The Night followed by the slight drop off with Cunning Stunts. There seems to be some Steely Dan influence in this album and a little bit of caution in the song writing. Not to be totally written off but definitely not one of their strongest...

To say this disc is rubbish is unfounded. It may not be A+ caravan but its still caravan and is still a great album, stand out cuts Here Am I, Oik Suite, Jack and Jill and the lovely song at the end of the album All The Way. This is and will always be my favourite Caravan album with In The Land Of Grey And Pink a close second

Update- September 18, 2014

I woke up a couple days ago desiring to re-listen to Blind Dog at St. Dunstan's because I originally didn't care for it much and I wanted to see if my feelings have changed any. I originally thought it was a very laidback, safe and uninteresting album by Caravan standards. However a few years later here we are, listening to it again. Now I love it! I think what happened is that 6 years ago I was locked into such a progressive rock mode that I was simply disappointed with the lack of lengthy flute, keyboard and guitar jams I've come to expect from the band. However I realize I'd overlooked a good portion of the instrumental variety here. Or perhaps I sensed a commercial-ish vibe on this outing that wasn't present so strongly and noticeably on previous Caravan albums, and that rubbed me the wrong way. Who knows the exact reason why I had mixed feelings with Blind Dog at St. Dunstan's.

"Here Am I" (NOT "Here I Am!" like some superhero) opens the album and it's much better than I remember. Quality vocals, energetic rhythm, and a great song overall. I either underestimated or simply overlooked Pye Hastings singing style. I love the electric guitar solo in the middle and the haunting violin near the end which is a surprising moment there. "Chiefs and Indians" is unique in that it features show tune/loungy-like vocals instead of the typical Canterbury style we normally associate with the band. A nice experiment for the band. The "talkin' about Chiefs and Indians" chorus sounds hit-worthy like this should have become a well-known song. It reminds me of the Moody Blues for some reason but I'm not sure why- I think it has less to do with the vocals and more so the other arrangements in the background. The electric guitar, violin and bass jams while short are very good for what they are.

"A Very Smelly Grubby Little Oik" reminds me of something Harry Potter would say or the type of thing he'd cast a wand to make as a means to keep one of his enemy's occupied for a little while, haha. I really have no idea what an oik is but it sounds bad so I'd not like to smell one or even be in the presence of one! Anyway this is so well-written it's impossible to hate- more very likeable vocals and guitar playing. "Bobbing Wide" contains soothing atmosphere and flutes. This is really dreamy and wonderful. I love when the pace slows down after a few minutes and the flute gets all jazzy. Great song.

"Come on Back" is the only forgettable tune on the album but it's not *that* bad at all of course. Just melodically a bit weaker than the other stuff here. The country/rock chorus is okay however. "Jack and Jill" is my favorite song here! It contains a funky rhythm with Hastings brand of sincerity and likeability along with a certain homemade vibe which is the reason I fell in love with this band in the first place. The vocals, the keyboard solo near the end and everything else is really strong here. "Can You Hear Me?" has an upbeat funky feel-good atmosphere. I enjoy the violin solo but it's brief, and the keyboard solo for some reason sounds new wave-ish to me. Pretty violin at the end too.

"All the Way (With John Wayne's Single Handed Liberation of Paris)" is... WOW what a song title! I have no idea what it means either. I normally don't keep up with my John Wayne history. Imaginative synth intro that maintains its soothing-ness until the beautiful chorus comes in, and the chorus itself is very laidback with nice flutes and piano. Very nice song. The verse melody reminds me of Paul McCartney's "My Love" which is a GREAT thing in my book. Amazing this song is actually 9 minutes long since it really doesn't feel like it at all. Proof that Caravan are the masters of songwriting. With that said, I actually feel this is the second weakest song here behind "Come on Back" but its uplifting nature is charming so I enjoy it all the same.

There. A fresher listen this time around resulting in a more productive review! I should have known the music would eventually click instead of writing it off so easily and just assuming it wasn't good enough. I highly recommend this album but it's not a classic like the first 5 Caravan albums but I rank it rather high regardless.

Now here's my older review from 6 years ago:

This is a pretty poppish and pleasant Caravan album. Though obviously not up to the standards of the previous albums, I've heard worse by progressive rock bands. Now the songs feel friendlier, prettier, and softer than ever before. BUT, there's still a heavy side to these guys, and it's noticeable in tracks such as "Here Am I".

On several occasions, you can sense the band is trying to fit in with the times, and not really failing- but struggling to write consistently. The lengthy closing track titled "All The Way" is not NEARLY as interesting musically as previous closers such as what you encountered on If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You for example, but for what it is (a commercialized ballad) it has pretty enough flutes, a repetitive though memorable chorus, and uplifting vibes. I can't help but love it but... yeah, it wouldn't be out of place on an Air Supply album. The whistling at the end just puts the finishing touch on a gently layered cupcake.

"Don't let me down you might drown in your tears" is a VERY cheesy lyric in "Can't You Hear Me". This is actually quite generic that's embarrassing when you really analyze it. It's generic funk to be precise. The vocals speed along but hardly ever capture my attention. A forced attempt at writing a decent song but it doesn't work for me. I mean even the violin usually stands out since it's one of my preferable musical instruments, but not in this case. I'm suspicious that "Jack and Jill" will be terrible based on the song title alone. Well, my disappointment doesn't actually come about after all. It's a decent song. A groovy and funky vocal melody and an almost innocent child-like chorus. I can almost say I love it... except for that weird repetitive part near the end leading into dog barking, haha.

"Here I Am" to save the day (or rather "Here Am I", hehe). This is a decent song that makes me feel like dancing. Talk about a song that captures the atmosphere of the mid 70's almost RIGHT on the money! This is it! The vocal melody is highly melodic and I enjoy it. Not the classic Caravan sound of old that I greatly admire of course, but fitting enough for a pop song. I love the guitar solo in the middle. You're probably out there thinking "Chiefs & Indians" sounds cool based on the song title well... prepare for utter disappointment upon discover it's not just a ballad, but a really sappy ballad at that. Alright so it's not a true ballad since the tempo picks up a minute later and the song changes direction dramatically, but then another problem is presented- the chorus is laughably cheesy. At least the violin work is fairly creative. Actually all the instrumental work is memorable. I REALLY wish that chorus wouldn't have made another return, though.

"A Very Smelly Grubby Little Oik" (yes I fit that description- you GOT me!) contains a cheesy verse melody that almost makes me blush upon hearing it. Maybe I'm crazy but it resembles the melody from "Stuck In a Hole" but played slightly slower. A decent song though. I won't knock it. "Bobbing Wide" is a dated (but entertaining) flute solo, and "Come On Back" is by FAR the worst song on the entire album. Worst song by far! A mid-tempo verse melody with light jazzy keyboards... and the vocals feel underwhelmingly incomplete. The "fat" chorus and the saxophone jam is another disaster. Ugh! "Oik" is basically another couple minutes of that terrible melody repeating even MORE. Let it end already!!!

Maybe the band members were listening to the Beatles at the time and wanted to write songs like them (actually, the verse melody to "All the Way" sounds very similar to Paul McCartney's "My Love") and that's totally cool with me, since everyone knows how good the Beatles are.

Along with Camel's Breathless, both albums fall in the same category of being lightweight, poppish and commercialized. I feel the Camel album is a bit better though- actually make that a LOT better. Better vocal melodies than what's presented here in my opinion. Don't write it off for being different- it's still a decent album. It's just that... yeah, the previous 6 studio album are better (even Cunning Stunts).

Similar in some ways to cunning stunts although it was not too popular. I liked it for its melody lines & jazz rock "fusiony" feel. I would have liked some longer cuts like their earlier albums, but they were trying to get noticed & needed shorter songs I have to presume.
