Like their peers, the Soft Machine, Caravan was a key member of the Canterbury scene that fused Progressive Rock, Psychedelic sounds and Jazz. Caravan however did not enjoy the same level of success as the Soft Machine even in their home country; though in Continental Europe they had some left of success. Basically, a cult band, Caravan still performs today to a devoted fan base, though their unique sound rarely find listeners beyond that fan base. It can be debated that had they found a way to supplant the Soft Machine as the premiere Canterbury band that they may have had more notoriety, but fact is neither band seems to be Cleveland bound anyway.
