This flurry of activity by Caravan in the spring of '74 was primarily in support of the band's seventh studio release, Blind Dog at St. Dunstans' - explaining the concentration of material from that album on this set. The combination of less-than-stellar material, as well as the instability of Caravan's personnel, results in an uneven performance

Surprise Supplies" is one of those albums which started life as a bootleg, but became legitimised when the band's then current label HTD released it officially. The recording by a Japanese fan of the band was made in the US during the tour to promote the "Blind dog at St Dunstan's" album. All but one of the six tracks here are therefore taken from that album, "The love in your eye" from "Waterloo Lily" being the only other song. Perversely, the most notable thing about the album is the omission of a performance of "For Richard", surely the only live Caravan album to do so. For collectors only. The album was released in 2005 in identical format under the title "Here I am".

Uh, pay no attention to the previous "reviews" - this is a LIVE album, NOT a re-issue of the Blind Dog album. The "obviously false" running times are because they are entirely different recordings. Give a listen before you review!!!
My fault. Sorry for that.
