Sarà pronta a fine maggio 2011 la riedizione celebrativa dello storico album dei Caravan In The Land Of Grey And Pink, a quarant'anni dalla sua prima pubblicazione. A curarne il 'restauro' - nei tre cd/dvd ci saranno versioni rimasterizzate, stereo e surround, brani aggiuntivi e un paio di filmati tratti dagli archivi di Beat Club - è Steven Wilson, già responsabile di alcune recenti rivisitazioni degli album dei King Crimson. Pareri e ragguagli tecnici, con qualche riserva, sono in alcuni interventi al forum di What's Rattlin'?

To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the release of Caravan’s In The Land Of Grey And Pink, Universal is pleased to announce a special three-disc, deluxe edition of the album. The original multi-track session and album masters have been revisited by Steven Wilson who has prepared new stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mixes. Disc One features the original album newly remastered by Paschal Byrne at The Audio Archive plus three new Stereo mixes by Steven Wilson. Disc Two features two previously unreleased versions of “It Doesn’t Take A Lot” and “Nigel Blows A Tune” plus four non-album tracks remixed by Wilson Disc two also includes three songs recorded live for BBC radio’s Sounds of the Seventies - “Love To Love You”, “Love Song Without Flute” and “In The Land Of Grey And Pink” plus two songs recorded live for John Peel’s Sunday Concert which included a superb cover version of Soft Machine’s “Feelin’, Reelin’, Squealin’” and Caravan’s own magnum opus, “Nine Feet Underground”. Disc Three is a DVD featuring the brand new 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo mix of the album plus two performances recorded for German TV’s Beat Club in June 1971. “Golf Girl” was broadcast at the time but “Winter Wine” has never been seen.
