#20 Caravan "Golf Girl" 1971
This Friday marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Caravan's In the Land of Grey and Pink, the most listenable of all the albums to emerge from that whimsical and jazzy Canterbury Scene.
The album kicks of with "Golf Girl". One of the great mysteries of Rock is the name of the trombonist. Nobody seems to know.
It's an amusing little ditty about love on a golf course. Apparently that's how songwriter Richard Sinclair
found his future wife.
The latest remastered version of the album contains five new cuts, including a song called "Group Girl", apparently the first version of "Golf Girl".
I am happy to say that when I use the search window on iTunes and type "Golf", this is the only song that pops up.
