3 stars Ok, take it as an historical documentary, regarding the first era by Camel (in the sixties, when Peter Bardens settled the roots of melodic prog music) and the second one in the late seventies/early eighties, when the AOR and commercial sound was unfortunately predominant in the production of Andy Latimer & company... well the restoration of the eary nineties (period regarding "Dust and dreams" and that unique era of Harbour Tears, with the exception of "Hopeless Anger" and "Hour candle", where Andy Latimer is fantastic), is not witnessed by any interview or film concert (do you remember the remarkable "Coming of Age" live-album, for instance?) and I don't understand why!! Nevertheless as a tribute to the memory of P. Bardens I'm glad, cause He's worth to be honoured like one of the most important keyboard and Organ player during more of twenty years and "The Snow Goose Era" along with the most successful hits stand still like some of the best prog memories, to be celebrated right now!! At the end "Fox Hill", the most amusing moment of "A Nod and a Wink", with a typical sound of the early Genesis, is very advisable in order to conclude the DVD Tribute in the best manner!!

Long Live Camel...but the present documentary (dated 2003) is essential for the fanatics or the long time fans of the band only!
