3 stars This is a real gift for Camel fans, showing the way that the band became one of the best Canterbury Symph bands of all time. It goes into detail about musical directions and interviews the members about all of the albums that made them prog mega legends. It is nice to hear from Latimer and Ward and the whole documentary is dedicated to the memory of Bardens.

The big albums that every fan salivates over are given fair treatment, namely Mirage, The Snow Goose and Moonmadness. We hear about the 80s triumphs in Nude, and also attention is drawn to Dust And Dreams and Harbour Of Tears that showed that there was still life in the band during the difficult 90's.

This may not appeal to the average music fan, but to Camel addicts it is a must. Like all documentaries it is worth viewing at least once but then loses value. Any Camel on DVD though is terrific so I give it 3 stars. Coming of Age is way better, a full concert, and should be recommended over this.
