Richard Sinclair's Caravan Of Dreams


Following well-received gig by the reformed Caravan in 1990, Richard Sinclair decided to form a band to play his own material. After the shortlived Going Going, which only played a handful of gigs, he launched Caravan Of Dreams in the Spring of 1991. The earliest incarnation was a trio of Sinclair on bass and vocals, Mark Hewins on guitar and Andy Ward on drums (all three had been in Going Going), which played two festival gigs : Jailbreak'91 (with Asward and Squeeze) and the Kingston Green festival.

Following well-received gig by the reformed Caravan in 1990, Richard Sinclair decided to form a band to play his own material. After the shortlived Going Going, which only played a handful of gigs, he launched Caravan Of Dreams in the Spring of 1991. The earliest incarnation was a trio of Sinclair on bass and vocals, Mark Hewins on guitar and Andy Ward on drums (all three had been in Going Going), which played two festival gigs : Jailbreak'91 (with Asward and Squeeze) and the Kingston Green festival. Too busy with his own projects, Hewins was then replaced by Rick Biddulph on bass while Sinclair moved to guitar.

The trio of Sinclair, Biddulph and Ward formed the core of Caravan Of Dreams until it ground to a halt in 1993, and was sometimes augmented by David Sinclair on keyboards and Jimmy Hastings on saxophones and flute. In April 1992, Richard Sinclair released the album Caravan Of Dreams (Biddulph was only on the live tracks as Sinclair handled both guitar and bass parts on the studio tracks) and in March 1993 a double live CD, An Evening Of Magic, was recorded in Italy. In the Autumn of 1993, Sinclair toured with a most unusual line-up (strangely billed as Richard Sinclair's Caravan) featuring him on guitar and bass, and both Andy Ward and Dave Cohen on drums (Hugh Hopper was due to join them but couldn't make it in the end, playing only on the first gig of the tour), and started recording the RSVP album, which marked the end of the Caravan Of Dreams project. The trio was however reformed briefly when both Ward and Biddulph joined Sinclair for an encore ("Plan It Earth") at London's Samuel Beckett bar on June 11th, 1994, which celebrated the release of RSVP.
