Caravan is the debut album by the British Canterbury scene progressive rock band Caravan. It was released in October 1968.
The album was the result of the band borrowing equipment from Soft Machine (who were touring the U.S. at the time with Jimi Hendrix and using his backline), producing "an unusually mature musical statement". The album was released in stereo and mono, in both the United States and United Kingdom, but failed to reach chart hit status.
The 2002 CD re-release included two full versions of the album, in its original mono and in stereo, and an extra track "Hello Hello" (3:12) which had originally been issued as a single.
