About this album

This is, for many, the classic Caravan line up that includes John G Perry on bass and vocals (John went on to play in Quantum Jump and produced a lost classic solo album called Sunset Wading). The album is one of the band’s most well known, if only for it’s title, and was released in 1973 and the band were supported by quite an array of well known musicians whose names can be found on many albums of the era, including Paul Buckmaster, cello, who played with Kevin Ayers.

    Brilliant indeed >> "For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night" is the 1973 and fifth studio album released by the Canterbury scene band Caravan. The pregnant girl pictured on the album’s gatefold cover was originally shown naked, but shortly before release Deram insisted that she had to be clothed in a nightdress.

    Anyone know where to find MP3's of this album? I'm looking specifically for Cthlu Thlu, and all iTunes and Amazon have are the new versions...LastFM's got it on a 30 second play, but no means of getting the actual track.
