Camel is another 1 of those overlooked-but-brilliant British art-rock bands of the early 70's. Gorgeous keyboard & guitar sounds, beautiful, melodic songs -- & they knew how 2 crank up the volume when required!
This 2-CD set gathers many of their best works. 5-star-worthy tracks include: "Never Let Go," "Lady Fantasy," "Rhayader," "Rhayader Goes to Town," "Unevensong," "Breathless," "Echoes," "Drafted," "Sasquatch," "Mother Road" & "West Berlin." There R many 4-star-worthy tracks, & longtime fans will B happy 2 hear large sections of the band's albums MIRAGE, MOONMADNESS, THE SNOW GOOSE and RAIN DANCES in this pristine digital 4mat.
However, there is a BIG emphasis here on the band's earlier, rockier, more progressive sounds, & less emphasis on some of the gorgeous moods they could create. I'm bummed by some of the stuff they left OFF this set: "Spirit of the Water," "Rain Dances," "Flight of the Snow Goose," "Down on the Farm," "Summer Lightning," "Eye of the Storm," "Who We Are," "City Life," "Please Come Home," "Manic," "A Heart's Desire/End Peace," & more. Non-fans & hardcore old-time fans may not miss these, but I think these tracks R better than some of the more obviously commercial tracks included on the 2nd disc ("Your Love is Stranger Than Mine," "You Are the One," "Lies," etc).
Everything sounds GREAT, of course -- but this is 1 band worthy of Xploring IN DEPTH -- I haven't heard an album by Camel so far that wasn't worth buying....
Big Camel fans should also check out the work of Caravan & Happy the Man....

I agree with the previous reviewers. This double CD is a good overview of Camels work of those years. Good sound, good booklet. As Camels style varied from album to album, you perhaps might not find everything great, so if you have the possibility perhaps its better to check out the individual albums to get most out of Camel. However, this applys to any "Greatest" of any band. Otherwise, with Echoes you have a large, good and economic overiew of Camel-Classics. For me, who I like almost everything from Camel, this is a perfect way to take Camel with me to work, friends etc.
If looking for another "Greatest", I can also recomment "Never Let go", Camels Double-Live 1993, 20th anniverary CD, containing Dust & Dreams performed live, and the rest filled full with classics. That's 132 mins of great, powerfull and passionate playing with clear sound, mix and production. There's also another Live which includes the famous album "Snow Goose" (a BIG classic) performed live, but I don't have it yet.
So, if you want a Studio-Greatest, in my opinion Echoes is perfect for this. But of course I hope, sooner or later you'll pick up some of their individual albums anyway.

It is true that alot of progressive music bands over-indulged themselves in their own abilities, therefore isolating the listener and eventually forcing them to turn off. Not so with Camel though. They consistently show their gritty determination in one blistering track after another. The most exceptional songs have to be "Lies" and "Echoes". Try listening to the live version of Lies on the album Pressure Points and witness the only true song performed which justifies a band ever releasing a live album. It is pure perfection. Ask anyone who the best guitar player is and you'll get either Eric Clapton or Jim Hendrix as your answers. Please, make no doubts that Andrew Latimer is better. Not because of speed or how many chords/notes he knows, but the way he plays. Again, perfection. A friend of mine has guitar lessons from the person who taught Joe Satriani. He recalls, "...Latimers guitar influence within Camel is exceptional. I taught Joe the chords in Echoes. He played me the lead break in Airborne. We loved the music that much..." It is a shame that Camels albums will never ever reach a top 40 place in the charts nowadays, but...when the Smurfs can reach number 1, can we expect that from an imature dance/acid happy album buying public? The same goes for albums by groups such as Horslips or Steve Hackett. Geniuses in their own right but neglected for the sake of being seen as uncool. Listen to this retrospective album and wallow in the clarity of every track. And believe me, some tof the other best Camel tracks are not on this. If Camel be the food of music.......... then play on. Case rested.

Well, I'm rather a fan of Camel's first albums, so the second disc of this set is not of special interest for me. While some songs like "Breathless" still sound good, the rest of disc 2 is just flat-sounding pop fluff, masquerading as something progressive and important. In my opinion, it tries to imitate Alan Parson's Project. Disc 1 is much more rewarding, but remember that Camel's first albums rather were concept works and it doesn't make much sense to pick some songs out of the context. After all, "Echoes" is an o.k. compilation, but for those who are really interested in Camel's music, I recommend to buy "Moonmadness" and "The Snow Goose" instead.

Echoes is a great start to learning about the history of Camel. Almost all of the really good cuts they did are included...However, if I were to add anything, I would add some cuts from "Raindances". I particularly love "Skylines" and "One of These Days". Actually the best "Skylines" cut appears on "Camel- A live Record" which is a two CD album from Deram. This cut contains an added bonus rift from Andrew latimer at the end of the tune. I actually like the live version better. My favorite of all their albums is Raindances (I have almost all their albums). If you like the instrumental cuts on Echoes, you will love "Raindances"! I've been a huge fan since I saw them live in Los Angeles in 1977. One of the great bands ever!!
