I think it was four or five years ago, Alan offered to send me as an introduction to Camel, a copy of On The Road 1981.
I recall when he sent it, he virtually guaranteed that I would I love this music.

Usually when people tell me "Oh, listen to this, you'll love it," it almost always turns out to be something disappointing.

So I fully expected that to be the case when the disc arrived and I put it on.

I remember being very pleasantly surprised on the first listen.
And the thing about Camel is that it doesn't hit you with a knockout blow right away.
It plants a seed in your brain (or at least it did with me), and I had this subtle desire to keep putting on that CD over and over again.
Within months, I started buying up their backcatalogue, obsessing over them.

I now list them among my favourite bands.

I can't help thinking - I always considered myself something of a music fanatic - yet somehow this band flew under my radar all these years.

I admit being just a little envious of those who knew of this band years ago and took the opportunity to see them perform.

And it's posts like that one, that makes recommendations really worthwhile.
I think many of us have had great introductions to bands that we may have not heard of, or listened to before, from people on this forum.
May the sharing of great music continue wink

I wonder how Andy is doing health wise? There has been nothing from the official site 'Camel Productions' for a little while so I just go with "no news is good news"

For anyone not yet aware of Camel's amazing back catalogue - "what are you waiting for?"

Without revealing my source, I can tell you that Andy has been progressing well...

I'm sure that we will receive more formal updates in the not too distant future.
