Prog Reviewer
4 stars Recorded back in 1973-75 and although did appear previously in the market as an Italian bootleg titled "Famous Rock Dreams" has been cleaned up and kindly re-mastered. This live snippet from the early days of CAMEL perfectly showcases the strengths and talents of this band. All 5 tracks on this recording are killer CAMEL with the "Snow Goose" clicking in over 27 minutes and having been lifted from a BBC Radio One recording, In Concert 1975. The cool thing about this is that there is no orchestra and you get a live in studio rendition of this prog masterpiece by the 4 members. Without a question the combo of Andy Latimer and Peter Bardens were something special and you can hear this musically in their approach and tight interplay. These early tracks also reveal a slightly rawer more instrumental based sound and a slightly more playful side. I would say that this CD is a great addition to any CAMEL fan from today and yesterday.
