4 stars CAMEL has released a lot of live-DVD's but never footage with complete recordings from the Seventies. So I was delighted with this DVD, containing material from '73 (1 songs in Guilford Civic Hall, unfortunately the sound is a studio overdub), '75 (BBC Old Grey Whistle Test with 3 songs), '77 (BBS Sight And Sound with 5 songs), '81 (Shepperton Studio for Old Grey Whistle Test with 1 song), '84 (Hammersmith Odeon with 1 song), '92 (Town And Country London Amateur Video with 1 song), '97 (Billboard Live with 2 songs) and a Bonus tilted "Left Luggage" (Little Barn Studios).

CAMEL is not a very exciting live band, a bit too static, but their melodic and harmonic sound is a 'warm bath' with Andy Latimer his expressive 'plastic face' during his moving guitar soli and Peter Bardens delivering great sounds and soli from his vintage keyboards (Moog, Fender Rhodes, string-Ensemble, Hammond). Enjoy a beautiful travel through time with songs like "Never Let Go", pieces from "The Snow Goose" album, "Uneven Song", "Lunar Sea", "Captured" and the previously unreleased "Preparation" and "Dunkirk".
