I am under no illusion that this thread will reach 16 pages Paloma, although it deserves to wink
Merely pointing out to some members on here who haven't heard much of Camel, should investigate further.
Always happy to help anyone that needs it wink wink
A band whose rich history never involved one duff album-ever. (Imho ) Not many bands can offer that.
There is nobody I know who can impart such emotion into his playing than Andy Latimer.

Radiohead? Pah!! rolleyes wink

Camel Rule!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

That is beautiful.

I saw the "Harbour of Tears" concert at The London Astoria. It was fabulous to see the place packed out. One of my favourite ever Camel gigs for sure.

I've been a Camel fan since 1981. Saw them on a repeat of Sight & Sound in Concert and was blown away. Went out the next day to buy some of their stuff, but the only one I could find was Nude which was a fantastic place to start and is still one of my favourite albums.

Camel are one of the few bands that I love every album (yes even the much maligned Single Factor) and Andy Latimer is indeed up there with the Gilmours, Hacketts and Bill Nelsons of this world. He's also a man who's shown great integrity over the years. I hope he gets over his illness soon and releases some new material.

I've only seen Camel once at Hammersmith Odean on the Stationary Traveller tour (the one on the Pressure Points DVD). Met Andy and some of the other band members that night, and he was an absolute gentleman. Hope they get to tour again so I can see them one more time.

Yes indeed Mal, Camel do rule. grin

There's a post about Radiohead under that video Paloma. This is it:

"probably unconscious but the tourist by radiohead sounds a bit like its influenced by the snow goose..."

What a coincidence grin

Can you see what he's getting at?
