4 stars An excellent live album by one of the latest Camel line-up. Although this was recorded during the "Rajaz" tour, only one number comes from "Rajaz" (i.e. "Sahara"). One may wish there was more from that CD, the set list is not bad at all. Also, this was recorded without the vocals of Andrew Latimer, who could not sing on that night because of health reasons. Guy Leblanc and Colin Bass filled in with brilliance however and their vocals did bring something kind of unique to the performance. Renditions of "Ice", "Sahara", "Lady Fantasy", etc. are just superb. The "late night version" of "Slow Yourself Down" (a studio version by Latimer and Leblanc) as a bonus track with Latimer on vocals is also worth noting. On balance, a very strong effort. Good sound, good musicianship and excellent music. Highly recommended.
