40 Year Itch : Bonjours Caravan

On November 26, 1973, to help promote their new ( and some say best ) album, For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night, progressive rockers Caravan allowed French television cameras to shoot their sold out concert at the Bataclan in Paris. A month later the show was broadcast. You'll hear the classic Plump track "The Dog, The Dog, He's At it Again" in its entirety as well as snippets of Plump's "Memory Lain, Hugh Headloss" and their classic show closer "For Richard" as well as all of Plump's epic "L'Auberge Du Sanglier / A Hunting We Shall Go / Pengola / Backwards / A Hunting We Shall Go (Reprise)". Longtime fans were originally suspicious of the new electric violinist Geoff Richardson, but most were sold on the addition thanks to performances like the one below.
