Yeah I do agree most die hard Camel fans would scoff at a compilation as one did when I was first introduced to the band....but looking at the track listing for that price it's an amazing list and one well worth getting for the novice just so they can have a taster.

It covers an excellent period right up until Stationary Traveller and includes some gems from The Snow Goose, Moonmadness, Mirage, Nude and you have Ice as well so all in all not a bad buy...yes Nige I say go for it...maybe later on you could then buy the catalogue bit by bit....

Thanks CW for your balanced reply. Knowing your excellent taste in music, I have just ordered this Camel compilation. cool

The Wikipedia page for this compilation says "Phil Collins - percussion". cool Anybody know which track(s)?

Phil was guest on the 'I can see your house from here' album....and the two tracks from that album that appear on the compilation are Hymn to Her and Ice...the same tracks also features Rupert Hine who produced some of Ant's albums....no wonder a lot of old Genesis fans also like Camel.... smiley

Tbh Phil's playing doesn't really stand out too much on the album. More blends in than anything. I often forget he's there!

The DPRP poll results for 2010 are here and Camel featured rather prominently...

The Opening Farewell made the top 10 for best DVD, and Andy's himself was voted #11 best guitarist of 2010 as a result of his guitar contribution to Masquerade...

Great news! Should have been higher though! wink smiley

It's a nice selection and good value ( as you said ) DAO. I really love the later Camel stuff myself, but maybe this selection will tempt you onto that too! smiley

I think that disc 1 of the Lunar Sea compilation album - covering the first 4 studio albums - is uniformly excellent. 2 of the tracks are live versions and Lady Fantasy in particular is an awesome performance. cool Disc 2 - covering Rain Dances to Stationary Traveller - is still good but cannot match the consistent quality of disc 1. However I do really like Echoes, Ice (very Gilmour-esque electric guitar), Lies and Stationary Traveller. smiley

Glad you're enjoying it...yes disc 1 is the best in the set but as you've already said there are some good ones on disc 2 as well...including one of my faves Long Goodbyes...it's such a catchy melody with a lovely solo at the end....

So you've had a taste of the early and middle periods...all that's left now is to get into the later period... wink...I'm not sure if there is a compilation of that era out though...

I'll have to listen to Rajaz via Spotify. That album seems to get good reviews and be deemed "a return to form".

Apparently there is a Camel tribute band called "The Humps". And I'm being totally serious.
