4 stars An excellent selection of tracks from all Camel albums up to 1993. If you're looking for a live introduction to this criminally underrated band, this might be a good start. And I would recommend disc 1 as your starting point. Disc 2 was a live performance of the album that had been released a few months earlier, "Dust and Dreams", which is not among my favorites. Nevertheless, these versions are generally better than the studio versions, perhaps because they are not burdened with the overproduction that characterized D&D and because the musicians really put their whole energy into them. Take for example Rose of Sharon, which had very bad vocals in the studio album, but now they are subtituted by Andy Latimer's voice. He has not a perfect or enviable voice, but it certainly makes up for the flaws of the original.
