Camel were my joint favourite band with Genesis when I was in my teens and some of those concerts (especially the "Nude" tour) were some of my favourites ever. Of course, for various reasons they kind of disappeared in the mid 80s but I was over-joyed when they came back with such a strong set of albums commencing with "Dust and Dreams". My particular fave from these later albums is "Harbour of Tears".

Andy Laitimer is indeed a fabulous guitarist and I've seen him up close at places like Hammersmith Odeon. Incredible emotion. For me though, he is at least matched by Roine Stolt from The Flower Kings. These 2 guys, along with Mr Hackett are my favourite guitarists as I'm more into emotion rather than energy or volume.






This Mr Stolte gets into every thread cheesy
Great to hear you're a Camel fan too Nov, see PM wink

Well, I think the guy is a genius so I try and get him a mention whenever I can.

I could easily knock up a TFK selection that would appeal to a Camel fan. There's a certain part of their sound that is definitely in that area.

I've been a big fan since about 1978 and have seen them probably about 15 times (at least) wink

I don't think I've ever heard a single note played by them! (unless a tune has been used on an advert or something)...what's their best known tune?

Oh Fraser!

You know that this could end up being very expensive for you wink

I liked Camel as much as Genesis when I was in my teens.

This is probably their best know piece of music (from "The Snowgoose"):

There's about 14 (or so) great albums to listen to though. Would you like a compilation?

It's a bit of a 70s prog classic.
