Caravan was a Duke Ellington tune. I don't know why FZ refers to it. Maybe poking fun at club audiences requesting the "standards".

This was like yelling "Free bird" in the mid '60s. The Ventures had a version on their album "Ventures On Stage" and every band in those days played it.

mg: did anybody ever ask for 'caravan', with the drum solo?

fz: that actually happened when we worked at a gig in el monte. some drunken buffoon in the audience requested it. 'I wanna hear 'caravan' with a drum sola!'

there are certain things you remember from your career, like that line.

when we worked at this music fair out in long island, we were the opening act for the vanilla fudge. 1968, I think it was. I remember this one guy out in the audience - it was the weatbury music fair- and the quote was 'youse guys stink! bring on the fudge!'

yeah
