3 stars Well this is one of the most important historical documents concerning such "Golden Era" (1973-75) of Camel's long career!!"Arubaluba" is the unusual track never published before within an Official Live album and contains such an interesting jam-session; therefore the presence of a classic melodic mini-suite like "Lady Fantasy" is a natural "purpose" for all the fans of Camel; as well as the excerpts from their most famous suite "The Snow Goose" are regarded always like other must-have numbers...nevertheless the production is not exceptional, but this is anyway an important document,a sort of Camel's biography of the early seventies, which can be almost erased only by the fantastic live album "A Live record". But of course the production of this latter -dated 1978- represents the best live issue ever produced and contains the best version of "The Snow Goose... so you can't compare it to the early live performances by Camel !!

Not the best album by Camel, but anyway it's important to collect it, if you are naturally a fan of this "immortal" band!!
