Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Camel's first compilation effort. I guess it is a bit useless to produce such a compil. Camel delivered concept albums most of the time (at least during their most creative period), so trying to compile their work is quite difficult. On top of that, in 1981 a band like Camel was completely out of tune.

The opener "Echoes" is the best song from "Breathless". Two Rhayader pieces from the "Snow Goose" follow ("Goes to Town" being a very good one). Then, finally, a true Camel classic with "Song Within a Song" from "Moonmadness". Full of the harmony and beauty that Camel could developed in their early work.

"Remote Romance" is an unreleased track as far as I know (and should have definitely remained as such). It is as bad as ELO will produce in those days. Awful, really.

Three tracks from "Nude" of which the title track that lasts for twenty-two seconds (what is the use of such track on a compilation) ? "Drafted" and "Lies" are ones of the few good songs on this album which was averagely poor.

"Supertwister" is one of the few tracks from their early work (unfortunately it is not their greatest one). "Unevensong" is a good song from "Raindances". "Rainbow's End" closes this compil effort as it closes "Breathless" : poorly.

To summarize, it is a pretty strange compilation of Camel. Very few highlights from either their early work (up to "Moonmadness ") or their later one (no "Ice"). I am not sure there is a need for such effort (actually, I know there isn't). Do not buy this one. Stick to their best studio albums (their remastered editions sell for cheap, so...). Two stars.

1 stars This 1981 compilation would have been quite a treat for newcomers to the band in those days but for us who have all the Camel albums to this time it is truly not much of an album. It doesn't even feature classics such as Lady Fantasy and Lunar Sea, surely indispensable epics of the group.

Echoes is a nice treat as always and of course the mandatory Snow Goose supplement of Rhayader and Rhayader goes to town. I always liked Song within a song and Nude, though there are some interesting choices i would have left off such as Lies and Supertwister. It finishes with two of the more recent tracks up to the time of release, Uneven song and Rainbow's end.

The packaging is astoundingly dull and no frills with a plain white cover and the titles. So there is little to recommend this unless you are a newcomer to the band and even then there are far better comps available now such as the excellent Lunar Sea anthology 2 CD package. In light of all this I can barely recommend this and opt for a completists only one star rating.

1 stars Poor collection. Not even an option for those who haven't listened to camel and want to have an idea. This collection consists of eleven amazing songs but the fact is that there are three times as many songs that could be put instead of those. This is only for completionists. Not even fans nee ...
