5 stars Of all the live albums released, I consider that this is the best by anyone with the possible exception of Runrig's breathtaking Once in a Lifetime. Disc one is a mix of excellent tracks from their first 5 albums along with one unreleased one (Ligging at Louis') and all are excellent - not a dull moment. Disc two is a complete Snow Goose with orchestra and couldn't be better. The recordings range over 3 years, including both Doug Ferguson and Richard Sinclair on bass. This is the only showcase for Ferguson live and shows how brilliantly he worked with Andy Ward to put together the rhythms over which Bardens and Latimer weaved their magic. Mel Collins was on the scene as well with his contributions of sax and flute, widening the band's sound. Camel were simply the best of the true prog bands and this shows exactly why; they were brilliant musicians, wrote great music and never indulged in the overblown excesses of some bands. Buy and enjoy!!!!
