4 stars Here's another bunch of performances from the various Camel line-ups from the first to the last, at least to this day. The members keep coming in and leaving, but the one thing that doesn't change is the fact that Camel is an extraordinarily tight live band.

The highlights to me are the two numbers by the original lineup (Arubaluba not included, since it's the studio version playing over live footage, as is the case with Lies too), Rhayader (even though I'd rather have seen this with Doug Ferguson playing bass, since his lines are a work of genius), Drafted with great vocals by Chris Rainbow (this was dropped out of Pressure Points video release because of lighting problems I guess, but will appear on the Total Pressure dvd coming sometime in the future) and the very touching acoustic version of Eyes of Ireland.

I wonder if there's still more treasures waiting for a release in the vaults. Anyway, this is an excellent addition to any prog collection and a must have for the fans.

Pekka | 4/5 |
