Ah...the softer side to Camel...and a beautiful one it is....its a most beautiful, well thought out, delivered, lyrical musical Camel we have here. I might as well say it: There is no bad Camel music !!! There is just different degrees of Camel music....this one is most certainly a soft one !!! Like the black and white photo of a little boy in the desert (?) on the cover signals. There are many beautiful songs here, all of them with instrumental pieces in between, in fact the album finishes with several fine instrumental sequences. Again Andy Latimer (producer, composer, guitarist, keyboard player and singer) did a fine job, his guitar always brings joy to the listener, sometimes invoking goose bumps, sometimes a big smile on your face!! Ton Scherpenzeel (from Kayak) always a joy to hear as is Colin on Bass (he..he) Oh and let us not forget David Paton (Pilot) on guest vocal. So a beautiful album from Camel with music for your sense, soul and heart!!!
This fine outing inspired by John Steinbeck´s novel: the Grapes of wrath.
Now, go buy it!!
