Although this is not their best recording in my opinion, it is good enough.
E. L. Jimenez
This is a moody and atmospheric album created in the Camel tradition of classically influenced jazz-rock and is the last of Camel's "progressive" recordings.
Jeffrey J.Park
I find it still sounding fresh, and this is an album that clearly has stood the test of time.

Camel over the course of their history came to define progressive melodic rock . Starting out of a band called 'The Brew' who were more of a straight forward rock trio, upon the addition of Peter Bardens on Keyboards the trio from 'Brew' Andy Latimer, guitars ,and flute, Doug Ferguson, bass and vocals, and Andy Ward ,drums ,became the mighty beast that is 'Camel' with their first gig as support to 'Wishbone Ash' in 1971.

But it was not until 1973 that there first self titled album was released , and although attracting a little critical attention ,did little else , listening to it now it is hardly surprising as it is a little twee. The second album got them all the publicity they wanted, but mostly not for musical reasons. Mirage ( 1974) came in an album cover replicating a packet of Camel cigarettes, which got them sued by Camel cigarettes in America , and their then turned the tables and got an endorsement from Camel cigarettes Europe , giving away free packets of five Camels to all the audience members at all their European gigs of that tour , so they ended up with enormous hassles in the States and had to change their album covers, and in Europe were hated by the Anti-smoking league for ever. Because of this their next album the all instrumental album based on Paul Gallico's Snow Goose, had to be called 'Music inspired by the Snow Goose' due to the authors abhorrence to all things nicotine. Never the less Snow Goose was Camel's breakthrough album opening up the world market to the band . Due to the record companies ( Decca) horror at having put out an all instrumental album last time the bands next effort was a bit of a compromise between band and record executives with all the songs having actual words, chorus's and verses ' Moonmadness'(1975).

This is another fantastic album from Camel for many of the same reasons that made "The Snow Goose" great. Longer pieces are de-emphasized, song structures are reasonably complex, and melodic counterpoint remains the focus. Moreover, extended guitar and keyboard soloing over a bass ostinato is set aside to make room for integrated ensemble work. Pete Bardens contributes some very nice synthesizer work (Elke, Rain Dances), and the quality of both the vocals and bass playing increase dramatically with the addition of Richard Sinclair (Caravan, Hatfield and the North etc.). This is a moody and atmospheric album created in the Camel tradition of classically influenced jazz-rock and is the last of Camel's "progressive" recordings. Highly recommended along with the debut (1973) and The Snow Goose (1975).

With Doug Ferguson being replaced by Richard Sinclair and saxophone player Mel Collins joining the band, the line-up on "Rain dances" was the most virtuous one in Camel's history. Contrary to popular belief, Camel has never been underappreciated; many of their '70s albums made the top-30 album charts in the UK and other European countries and also charted stateside, albeit lower. Similar to other prog-rock bands in the late-'70s, Camel were experimenting with a new general accessibility, deciding to abandon the sometimes over-pretty soundscapes of previous albums like "Moonmadness" in favor of shorter but equally adventurous songs. "Rain dances" also shows a jazzy flavor, with arpeggiated bass notes and complex song construction, which fits in perfectly. All the musicians are right-on-target with "First light" and the aptly titled "Unevensong", two tracks which shift a number of times during their length, sometimes playing around with straightforward rhythms and at other points serving dream-like soundscapes with muffled vocals and rather low-key arrangements. However, the album struggles to maintain this level - there are a few lightweight pop tracks waiting to be discovered, namely "Tell me" and two nearly identical versions of "Highways of the sun". Perhaps Camel should have listened to their own words on "Highways.." and avoided their destiny of "sailing in a ship that's got no sails" in favor of a more experimental path. "One of.." sounds a bit like "new age disco", a relaxing piece with several interesting keyboard textures, and "Skylines" is a very jazzy but also slightly unfocused number.Read more ›

I've been waiting years for Rain Dances to receive the remaster treatment that the 1st four Camel LPs and the Live Record enjoyed. I am pleased to report a job wonderfully executed. This version has a punch the original Decca cd lacked...to keep it short it sounds fresh, bright and clean w/ some volume added...it's been in my car since I received it last week...The bonus tracks to me don't really add much, I actually wish they were left off: the single version of Highways of the Sun and 6 live audio tracks from the '77 Sight and Sound footage found on the Camel Footage dvds (which are beyond essential) .
Now I am crossing my fingers for Breathless, I Can See Your House From Here, Nude, The Single Factor and Pressure Points to see remasters (Stationary Traveller was remastered by Andrew Latimer and can be found at Camel's website). Overall a wonderful new updated package w/ great liner notes and killer sound...Enjoy this great LP by a criminally overlooked band.
