GUEST APPEARANCES FROM PETE BARDENS AND JIMMY HASTINGS

This is from a 1984 concert from the tour to support Stationary Traveler. It is 46 minutes long. The sound quality is very good but not perfect. I like that is has a live, booming feel to it. Audience noise is kept to a minimum and almost not existant during the playing.

This CD was originally available only in Europe and then went out of print. It has been reissued and should be available now in the US.

The band on this album is mostly the same as Stationary Traveler, including Chris Rainbow, who made Camel sound like the Alan Parsons Project. It also includes appearances by Pete Bardins (the original keyboard player) and Jimmy Hastings (who has played on other Camel records and with many other Canteburry bands).

At only 46 minutes, you that this CD does not represent the complete Camel concert. They almost always played two hours. So, why were these particular songs chosen for the CD? I have no idea, and they are not a very good choice.

Most of the songs come from 1979 through 1984, not Camel's best artistic period. Many are straight forward songs in a Alan Parsons sort of vain. Many are not very interesting.

The performance of these songs is not that great and not too much different than the studio versions. They all do have some great Andrew Lattimer guitar snippets, but they are not long enough for him to really open up. In many of the places, the back up musicians are not very good. There are some very lame keyboard solos.

Jimmy Hastings and Pete Bardens do add some great moments, but they are not many. With 4 keyboard players in the group, Bardens is rarely heard.

There are some moments on this CD.

Pressure Points is the highlight of this album. Unfocused? It is a singular piece of genius, that expands beyond the limitations placed upon the original presentation on "Imaginary Traveler". Camel had some great music, and some formulaic fillers. This album takes their best tracks, and expands and reinforces them.

I "discovered" Camel when I was living in England in the early 1980"s. I watched their live concert on BBC and subsequently bought their LP, "Pressure Points". After that, I began to search for great (as opposed to good) rock groups that had really great guitar solos. I owe Camel my loyalty to the British experience and wait for more to come from that island.

This CD is a good example of early rock and progressive music of the '80's. Thanks, Camel!
