Nice to compare this with the old BBC Sight & Sound Squigs, as the stage and camera setup is somewhat similar. Music is as dynamic and emotional as BBC despite the fact only one of the musicians played both gigs.

Brave to record on the opening night! Most live releases are taken from late in the tour when the songs are inevitably more thoroughly rehearsed. Fantastic that my persoal favourite, Stationary Traveller was in the set at this time.

Love the vocals of Andy & Colin, both individually and harmonized. I just plain disagree with the old gripe about Camel lyrics/vocals not being up to par: coming as they do from the heart, they complement the music perfectly in time-honoured blues tradition.


Aha, I'm wondering what your new alias is now! grin

Lovely to have ' Stationary Traveller ' on there I agree. So beautifully played too. smiley Nice to hear you enjoy Andy and Colin's vocals, like me. Just love the warmth in the voices. smiley

Yes sounds like a glitch in the system. Marcel you are 9th on the donor list which means yours would go out early. (Eric is 6th and his arrived yesterday). So hang on in there smiley

Mine came today and I've watched it twice already, had a smile on my face most of that time. On the Coming of Age DVD I really enjoyed the banter the band had in the rehearsals bonus material so I was looking to see if this new DVD had any similar bonus material ... there isn't any. But I needn't have worried because they brought the banter and fun on stage and put it in the show. Great gig ... great show! ... watched by an appreciative audience making it quite a relaxed family affair. The songs played had plenty of variations in them to make them sound fresh .... and Eric you can have to much turkey but you can never have to much snowgoose. I was also surprised they recorded the warm up show and not a later show, any reason for that?... perhaps you could answer that one David. Anyway I loved it! .... first David's album and now this ..... its been a very good year for music.

The reason for this was simply because it was the only show Camel ended up playing in California where me and my crew were located. The rest of the US shows were all on the East Coast 3000 miles away and it would have been cost prohibitive to fly my crew out there (we had thought about recording the Nearfest gig, but ultimately ruled it out).

So we devised a plan where we would film both the first and last show of the tour, thus showing the band's 'evolution'. I had arranged to hire an English crew to do the final show in the UK and I would fly over there to direct. However, a week before that show, the crew in England I had arranged for cancelled and simultaneously I was called in to do some more work on a project with Mel Gibson which I couldn't get out of. At first disappointed, CP's attitude was 'well, it just wasn't meant to be.' So we were left with just the first show recorded.

And even though it's the first show, I thought it turned out brilliant, energetic, and nearly flawless. How Tom Brislin was able to learn the entire Camel setlist in a week was simply astounding. shocked

Cheers;
Dave
