    Thought it's about time to get a bit more life in here, and how better than with one of prog rock's most enduring and successful bands!

    Best known for their third LP, the instrumental concept album "music inspired by The Snow Goose"

    Apart from a 7 year disappearance from the public, (1984 - 1991) Camel have been actively touring and writing from 1971 until present.

    A few of my favourites:

    Nice OP Salmacis.::tup:

    You posted their best album, at least it always been at the top of my list. Camel is a very good band, they never quite got the accolades that their contemporaries received though and I never understood why.:dunno:

    I have 9 of their albums Sal but I'll let You post them seeing it's your thread.:heheh:

    This was the album that was a bit more "radio" friendly than it's predecessors, moving into a popish sound. This album also incorporated some different music styles, which I find only mildly interesting. At this point, the band was losing my interest in them.

    They are an acquired taste, but I have warmed up to them over the years. When I bought Rain Dance and Breathless on vinyl when they came out, I didn't have the patience that I possess now to give them a chance.

    Still Snow Goose is my fave, I just love that whole album.

    Snow Goose is probably their best, IMO, but I have to be fair and say I have not listened to the newer stuff, I did hear the next album after Breathless, "I Can See Your House from Here" and it was not that bad, but you can tell they were struggling with all the new band members on that album.

    A friend of mine did recommend Rajaz, but I haven't taken the time yet to get it.

    Mirage is good, too. But still Snow Goose is my fave.




    This song is pretty epic, humm....I may rethink my favorite.

    Rhayader is quickly becoming one of my favourite prog songs though :)

    I just like the feel of Snow Goose, it's such a Unique sounding album. Tattoo'd and Annie are fans too so I'm sure they'll help out in her as well.:tup:
