if out esteemed 'dm' is still around I'd have two questions re the Moondances DVD ...


Q1:
The 1976 footage is "cropped" from its original 4:3 format to "fake" 16:9 format. I'm sure there is a reason this was done, since the other concert is in its original 4:3 format. Or am I wrong? Can you explain why this was done? My guess is that they tried to mask possible "bleeding" at the top and/or bottom of
the screen.

Q2:
Close to the end of "Lunar Sea" (also from the 1976 concert), there's a slight distortion in the sound. It sounds a bit like an "interference" kind of sound, caused by a cell phone or something. Is this a known issue?

thanks already

cheers

I've just seen a clip of Camel from The Old Grey Whistle Test back in '75, performing exerpts from The Snow Goose.

Is the whole gig available on DVD anywhere, does anybody know?

Hi Eric:

Esteemed you sayhuh shocked grin

You are correct about the cropping, it would have been a little too distracting to leave it as is. And the distortion at the end of Lunar Sea was on the master tape and couldn't be repaired. Don't think cell phones weren't arround in '76, so it was just some kind of equipment anomaly that occurred live during the broadcast. We had two different masters to choose from and the distortion was on both.

That '76 concert was a difficult one to track down. I would have liked to have used a clip of it in Curriculum Vitae, but it wasn't available at the time. The first master we were supplied with was pretty poor quality, obviously a copy, and it was damaged too at the end of White Rider. This was the master used for the excerpt featured on Footage 2, which is why Andy's solo at the end of White Rider is shorter on Footage 2 than on Moondances. After Footage 2 was released, we received a much better quality master which is what was used for Moondances. There were addtional tracks filmed that night such as Song Within a Song which had been edited out of the one hour broadcast version, but we couldn't get a hold of the outakes. Which is too bad, it would have been nice to see Doug take the spotlight. Poor Doug, the camera guys seemed to avoid him during the rest of the program.

Hi Fat Ones:
The whole gig consists only of the 3 Snow Goose tracks in which Camel performs with the chamber orchestra. That's all that was filmed. The entire 15 minute clip is included on Camel Footage 1 and a good portion of it is featured in Camel Curriculum Vitae too.
