Traditional caravan used to be composed of various number of camels, but the same rule isn´t valid in vice versa.Wink

I´m somewhat astonished by general success of the band Caravan here, one their album is even comparable, judging by PA ratings, with one of several pillars of Symphonic Prog - Camel. Therefore I´ve decided to create this poll to reveal your real preferences and opinions to both albums or bands generally.

Land of Grey and Pink is a big three star album for me, but the Snow Goose is much better and varied in my opinion.

Grey and Pink by a large margin. Different story though if it's Camel's debut,Mirage or Moonmadness.

Had to give this one a serious thought and after cup of coffee and cigarette I voted The Snow Goose.

Lately I've been listening Camel a lot, especially A Nod And A Wink has popped up as a real good album.

Can't vote but still...

Don't like snow goose too much it just don't fit right. It would be different with mirage or moonmadness.

caravan is just fantastic.

Caravan! But it was a difficult choice.

Camel made some great music, and Andy Latimer is a musician of great sincerity, but they were notheing on caravan, and The Land of Grey and Pink is much more interesting than the Snow Goose. that said i think Waterloo Lily is my favorite.

Can't vote, but much as I like The Snow Goose, it doesn't remotely compare to In The Land Of Grey And Pink. Caravan by a distance.

It takes a lot of Camels to make one Caravan for me.

Camel over Caravan.

Land Of Grey And Pink over Moonmadness (although they are both great)

Preferring Camel in general, I vote for Caravan nevertheless.

I love Grey and Pink, and although I like Snowgoose, I don't like it as much as some of the other Camel classic albums.

Caravan no doubt. 
I know Snowgoose has its followers - and those who like that album, doesn´t just like it, no they love it with a passion like it was their own offspring, and that is very comforting to me.

Caravan's album is very good, but Camel's is one of rare beauty and emotion.

However much I love In the Land of Grey and Pink, I have to give my vote to The Snow Goose, which is in my top 10 of the 70's.
