The Snow Goose was re-recorded in May and released that November dropping the "Music Inspired By" from the title as a tribute to the original line-up by founder Andrew Latimer , remaining close to the original arrangement.
The album's success led to a sell-out concert at the Royal Albert Hall , London, with the London Symphony Orchestra in October , which was later released as part of the live double album A Live Record Camel embarked on a brief tour in autumn , performing The Snow Goose for the first time since the Royal Albert Hall show in A statement from the band for the initial show said: "The evening pays tribute to former band member Peter Bardens , who died of cancer at the same time as frontman Latimer was battling a terminal illness.
Ten years later, Latimer has regained health and is willing to celebrate a career that spans over four decades. This two-set show will also embrace compositions recorded throughout those years in a personal covenant of appreciation for a deeply rewarding life of music. For most of the second disc, it was truly a skipping affair in my CD player. Even though the second disc of Echoes leaves much to be desired, I still think this is an absolutely wonderful introduction to Camel. After all, it lead me to start acquiring all the important Camel albums of the s.
Also the historical notes contained within the accompanying booklet are very well done. However, in the grand scheme of things this compilation isn't for everyone. It's primarily for the uninitiated and completionists. If you're familiar with Camel, I would instead recommend getting their albums from their period, skip over their s output and jump right into their ss period. For those of you who have never heard of Camel, Echoes is a good start.
Three stars. AS far as this compilation concern, I recommend you to have this boxed set whether you are newbie or old fans. For newbies, this is an excellent selection of the band's excellent tracks so that it may satisfy you even though it does not represent the whole story of the band. For an old fan this compilation tracks the band's journey in 20 years span of career. The fans must recognize very well with legendary tracks like 'Lady Fantasy' which has everything that requires a band being called as prog band because it has nice changes of style over the span of the song duration.
Great tracks here including "Lady Fantasy" that moves dynamically from one segment to another, coupled with a inventive Hammond organ work. You may find also 'The Sleeper' that has an exploration into jazzy music. Streams Videos All Posts. Styles Art Rock Prog-Rock.

Lady Fantasy Live Total playing timeOct 25, · Many of their songs are among my true favorites of all time. I think their best album is the "Snow Goose" album, which is basically a single work, although the songs are individually named. This "Echoes Retrospective" is named from their song "Echoes", and it's really a great title for this CD. It really echoes the brilliance that was Camel/5(11).
