Andy Latimer is my favourite guitarist and his solos never cease to amaze me with their emotion and melodic beauty.

These are my favourite 7, but there are many more, hence the other option.

Lunar Sea is my choice, but all the mentioned tracks are excellent. I don't like Ice too much. A good three tracks patchwork, not an epic.

Latimer's solo on Freefall is sheer perfection for me.
Dategories strain, crack and sometimes break, under their burden - step out of the space provided.

One of my top 5 favorite guitarists, Andy Latimer is truly and amazing and powerful master of the guitar. I went with Ice ( specially the live version on "Coming of Age"), though all the other songs are great, but I made my choice based on the solo, not on the song itself. I would have added "Lawrence" from "Rajaz" to the list, a very emotional and exiting solo, that touches me very deeply, no matter how many times I listen to it.

Very hard choice here. However, Rhayader Goes to Town has always been my favorite. It gets me every single time I listen to it.

Rhayader for me, the transition into the solo is one of the best ever.
Its simple, its genius, and most importantly, its Tangerine Dream.

I thought "for today" was Steve Hackett. Or am I thinking of something else? :D

For Today is the last track on A Nod and a Wink. Possibly the most emotional track ever recorded; a tribute to those who died in the 11-9 terror attacks..

Although Camel wouldn't rank among my favourite bands, Andy Latimer would probably rank among my top guitarists.

Here I vote for Lunar Sea. Great instrumental with amazing lead work.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

PS - I really hate these polls. They make me think about the music, then I want to go listen to the albums ;-)
