Rediscovering Camel,

Recommended Posts

This awesome group of talented musicians have always flown under the radar of mainstream pop music,  unlike Pink Floyd , but IMO Camel was as good as any of the  60s and 70s bands that explored far edges of mindbending  music.

Moon Madness is a great album. Mirage, Rain Dances, I Can See My House From Here, and Snow Goose all pretty solid.  Nude was a strange one.

Have to admit, they flew under my radar too.  The vocalist is great, his pitch is spot on.  They remind me of a cross between 'Floyd and Atlanta Rhythm Section, plus some other stuff.

Yeah, plus they could learn how to trim the excess wire from the tuning keys, Lol.

Excellent band, a bit underrated regarding other groups.

IMO Andy Latimer is like David Guilmour but with humbuckers 😁😁.

Cheers

I like the way Andy incorporates sustain into his melodic style,  very smooth transitions,

Rain Dances is a great album, they were always a class live band. 

Agreed, they have an almost global cult following  which is quite an accomplishment considering they never had a hit single on am or fm radio, and they did this before YouTube and the internet,  

They are very popular in Japan for example.

I always liked their band name. 

"How about we call ourselves Camel." 

"Err... Why?" 

"Why not?" 

"Good point. Okay, Camel it is."
