I wasn't around 40 years ago, but Rain Dances is my favourite Camel album after Mirage.

I wasn't yet born...had to wait until December.

I was expecting nothing but my mother was soon expecting me. I was born two days before Saturday Night Fever opened in theatres. I like to think I single-handedly started Disco Fever. You're welcome.

I had most of this albums, and heard them all. They bring so many fond memories, and I like them all, but if I have to pick one, it will be "Songs From The Wood".

Before my time, but I really do like the quirkiness of Ra, so I chose it expecting that no one else will.

Clap though whoever started the later and much better Urban Cowboy (oh Debra) craze gets two clappies and a heart from me! Those were fun years....



no vote here...  I was too busy enjoying the Saturday Night Fever album myself as was everyone else.. whether they care to admit it or not LOL
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

It would have been Songs for the Wood but I think Rain Dances has aged very well

Another-Helmut Koellen's solo album, You Won't See Me, released in 1977, though never discovered it until the 2000s.

I was listening to all of those back then and my opinion now is different then it was. 
Today I realize that Animals is the best album on the list.
But in 1977 I was all about RA.

"Communion With The Sun"

Songs, Going, and Animals were all glued to my turntable at this time in frequency of order.

First time I had even heard of Pink Floyd was when as a senior in high school in 1977 a kid brought in a copy of Animals to listen to during art class. Set the direction for my college listening experiences perfectly. Animals it is...
He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me -- John Barrymore

I voted for Univers Zero's 1313. I remember liking Camel's Rain Dances and Gong's Expresso II, but I haven't played them in so long I can't quite remember them. I love the guitar parts in Motivation Radio, but not so much the songs they occur in.
