Editorial Reviews

The complete 2 hour performance that was lensed at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1984! The footage include 5 songs that the band thought had been erased by their record company, but had merely been misplaced in the archives. Onstage personnel included Andrew Latimer (guitars, flutes, vocals), Colin Bass (bass, vocals), Paul Burgess, Ton Scherpenzeel & Richie Close (keyboards) and Chris Rainbow (vocals). The show also features guest appearances by Mel Collins (sax) and former band member, the late Peter Bardens (keyboards). The disc also features an interview with Andrew Latimer for Mirror Image that was recorded at the time of the performance and broadcast on British television.

A must for every Camel fan, Total Pressure delivers beyond belief. The full concert previously released as Pressure Points, sans actors, is an ABSOLUTELY jaw dropping performance. I want to keep this short, every musician is in top form, the set list covers nearly every period of Camel's career, the picture and sound are excellent, the bonus material is extra concert footage and the interview is cool from '84..I could easily sell half of my music dvd collection after watching this......maybe I will!! BUY THIS NOW and PLAY LOUD!!!!!!

I just saw this concert DVD for the first time (I've only been listening to Camel for nine months), and I have to say, I'm quite amazed. The video quality and editing is top-notch, the band is tight, the mix is good (perhaps a tad keyboard and reverb heavy, but this was the 80s), and is a good career overview leading up to '84.

Stationary Traveller is moderately represented, and while it's not my favorite Camel album, the songs turn out much better live than the studio. Andy Latimer is the only original band member here, and plays guitar with an incredible amount of passion. It's somewhat similiar to David Gilmour's tone on a few tracks, but a little lighter and faster at times. He also provides the main vocals and occasional flute.

Total Pressure is an expanded version of their Pressure Points VHS/DVD, and includes several bonus songs (almost 1/3rd is new here) and an interview from 1984-85.

Highly recommended for fans of either classic prog or AOR. There's something to love for everyone.

This fantastic live DVD releases the complete concert best known as Pressure Points. The sound and performances are excellent, even if the cameramen don't seem to know who's who: they focus on bassist Colin Bass singing backing vocals when Chris Rainbow's singing lead, they focus on Rainbow playing rhythm keyboards while Ton Scherpenzeel (Kayak) or the little-known but talented Richie Close are soloing, and they show hardly any of Pete Bardens' playing, even though he's the guest of honor! But there's no doubt that the actual cinematic results (lighting, close-ups, tracking shots) look very professional. As for the bonus material, the TV interview with Latimer from the same tour is a nice period piece, but the real gem is "Added Pressure," the four-track "lost" set that was salvaged from a previously-forgotten reference copy of the entire show. Evidently, the director thought the footage too dimly shot to use so scrapped much of the opening set. It looks fine to me, though, and the playing and sound quality are great (though in mono here, I believe): La Princesse Perdue, Hymn to Her, a rocking Never Let Go (with terrific solos from Andy, Ton, and especially Richie), and a superb Unevensong where Rainbow's vocals really shine. I loved the single-disc vinyl back in the 80s; I'm in awe of the massively expanded video set now!

I only recently came across this band by purchasing Echoes, a two cd compilation which I enjoyed greatly.This concert DVD while lacking the prodution of modern era concert movies is still a pleasure to watch. It features a superb performance by a very talented group.

Didn't have a laser disk player, but bought it anyways. Had it copied to a super beta max tape. Loved it! My only complaint is: camera moves away from Andy's fingers during some of the great solo work..
