Better by far" falls outwith the classic Caravan Deram label years of "Land of grey and pink", "For girls who grow. et. which were indeed better by far than this album. That said, the music here is enjoyable if relatively unchallenging. Recorded in Spring 1977, the line up is essentially that which recorded the previous "Blind dog at St. Dunstans", with Dek Messecar replacing Mike Wedgwood on bass. The band moved labels once again for the album, this time to BTM/Arista, with the legendary Tony Visconti taking on the roll of producer

Better By Far is unmistakably a Caravan album, but sadly it has more boring moments than good ones. The music is more or less soft rock�n�roll by now and all hints of progressive rock are gone except for the only good song here which is the instrumental The last unicorn. Something about even this perceived poorer album & By Far' from Caravan still brings a smile to my face. I love the cheeky lyrics, wonderfully upbeat sound and energetic playing. There's a real infectious quality to this album that makes me proudly place it alongside their classic discs.
