Hey everyone, I'm interested to see what people thinnk Camel's best lineup is... besides the Latimer/Bardens/Ferguson/Ward lineup. Personally my favorite would be Latimer/Bardens/Sinclair/Ward/Collins because I think Mel Collins added something truly unique to the Rain Dances album, especially on First Light. Also the addition of Richard Sinclair gave the album a slight canterbury feel to it. I'm guessing either this lineup or the lineup from their two latest albums will be the favorite. Thanks!
Sinclair/Ward/Bardens/Latimer/Collins

I really like the Collins/Sinclair lineup too.  I probably listen to Breathless as much as or more than any other Camel album.

I love the Raindances/Breathless era. Sinclair is one of my fave musicians. Fine voice, composer and bass player.

Hard to choose between the early line-up and the Raindances / Breathless line-up.
A year ago I would have said: early line-up, but since I discovered the magnificent playing on & sound of "The Sleeper" from Breathless, I wonder if they ever did better than that.

Cant beat the original line-up but Collins/Sinclair era produced some good stuff too eg Echoes/Breathless.
 
However, my personal fave album after the Mirage/Snow Goose/Moonmadness era is "Nude" from 1981. The line-up for this was:
 
Ward/Latimer/ Colin Bass/Kit Watkins / Jan Schelhaas

I'm going to have to listen to Raindances again. I bought it some years ago, and played it twice. At that time I'd not heard anything quite so dull. Some people love it, obviously. I must be missing something.

My favourite line up is the Mirage/Moonmadness line up.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

The original lineup, of course. Mirage, Snow Goose, and Moonmadness are still their best albums, IMO
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...

You can't beat that line-up.

Agreed, Rain Dances is such a fine jazzy prog album. Breathless is rather hit-and-miss though.

Got to be the original line up - no question about it. The last Camel album I brought was I Can See Your House From Here which has not been played that often. Something changed for me once the late Peter Bardens left the band.

Collins/Sinclair for me too.  Also, around 1979 Dave Sinclair sat at the keyboards for a while........

Original line up. No question really. Rain Dances is awesome though.

I actually have all the albums, but I only really listen to the ones by the classic lineup. There's something missing with some of the later ones. Mirage, Snow Goose, and Moonmadness still can't be beaten.
