This was one of "those bands"...more of legend than a band.

Thank the gods for the "Next" button.  Sorry, I can dig me some modern WTF-prog like Lamb, NoMeansNo, Battles or Critters Buggin', but this needs to stay in the 70s.

 I've always thought it sounded like Jethro Tull and Rush got together and had a big disco baby. Truly the roots of prog-rock encased in vinyl. Thank you for the memories Bill!

Kit Watkins! I have his solo stuff, like Azure. He's really doing some nice things these days. Yes, he would fit in nicely at RP. And I like this too! Always do. One of my first CD purchases was a Camel collection. Great stuff.

Ok, last year (almost to the day, I might add) I posted that I did not like this song. Well, this year, I kind of admit that it is ok. I guess we all go through changes, huh?

http://www.magenta.co.il/camel/faq/faq-body.htm#21 There isn't any connection between the band Camel and the Camel cigarette brand. The cigarette pack is immitated in the UK release of the Mirage album, and the camel image associated with Camel Productions looks very much like the cigarette logo, but hey, it's an side-view image of a Camel... what else would you expect?! How can they get away with rippng off the logo? There was a thrift store in my town call Sacks Thrift Avenue and the real store from NY came in and sued and made the little bitty thrift store change its name - they soon went ouf business.

Yup - could it be a vinyl dub with a shot stylus? Still, amusing to hear it again after what seems like a lifetime.

I personally just can't get into this. I've never really liked the sound of the flute as a lead instrument (as opposed to being blended into an orchestra). It might be a generational thing though...most of the comments are saying "Great to hear this after (25-27) years! That would put me at somewhere between -6 months and -2 1/2 years old.

Now Mark, how does it feel to be attacked on not liking a song? I can understand people don't like it, and I fully respect it. Just remember that Camel has had a lot of influence on Film music, and has written some of it as well. Tangerine Dream is another example of a group that has written enourmous amounts of film music and never made the public acceptance for their `normal' records. I for one like them both very much.

Comments like this just amaze me. They are usually made by someone who has no clue what it takes to write a musical composition. Having pen and paper (or a Cascio) does not make one a writer (composer). And it's harder than it (apparently) seems.
