A Great Way To Hear The Best of a Great Band

"I bought this 2-CD set for the second cd, the live performance of The Snow Goose. And, my God! I get Goose Bumps every time I listen to it! This live version is far superior to the ( nonetheless ) excellent studio recording. Just a beautiful piece of music. The first CD is good, but the music on it is nothing compared to Snow Goose."
Truly Excellent Listening

"What can one say, what excellent muscicianship by all the members of this long forgotten band. Andy Latimers guitar work is outstanding. Mel Collins Sax work is also not to be forgotten. If you are a Snow Goose fan this is the album to have in your collection. If you're not a fan try it anyway - you'll probably come to love it! If anyone knows how to get a copy of the video made of this concert - in NTSC format "I would love one""

"This is a Live Double-CD. One CD features classic Camel songs, the other CD is the album "Snow Goose" played live. So, this is more focused on the early Camel, making it a good listen for those who prefer their earlier work. Camel Live is a bit different than studio, their arrangement is a bit more airy and has more dynamic, which is very welcome for a Live recording and adds to the atmosphere. Sound quality is very good. For me the differencs of hearing Camel playing Live alone is a reason to get this Live-Record, even if I have all the songs on studio Cds. And as I consider Snow Goose as one of the finest "concept albums" (all instrumental!) in rockhistory this Live Record is a cornerstone of my Camel-Collection. I can also recomment another Camel Double-Live "Newer Let Go", which consist of one CD classic songs, and one CD Dust&Dreams Live, also with amazing performance and crystal clear sound. Please note, that three stars means very good in my rating system, and it does not mean that I feel any flaws here. It's only that the studioversion got the stars, because they were first and the original."
