    专辑介绍:
    Camel是一支注重旋律的前卫摇滚团体. 他们很好地综合了当时存在的各种乐器(flute, miniMoog, Sequencer…), 这使他们的作品呈现出多层次的声响结构. Andrew Latimer是团中的灵魂人物, 他的吉他和长笛可以算是Camel的招牌. 1973年, 乐队的同名处女作是一张拼凑了各大家风格的仿制品. 从1974年的Mirage开始, 他们开始找到自己的声音, 在1975年的Snow Goose(一张纯器乐概念专辑), 1977年的Rain Dances中, 这种性格化的声音被发挥到极致.
    History - 1970s
    Camel was formed in 1971 when Andrew Latimer (guitar), Andy Ward (drums) and Doug Ferguson (bass) who had been playing as a trio called The Brew, recruited Peter Bardens (keyboards). After an initial gig to fulfill a Bardens commitment on 8th October in Belfast, Northern Ireland under the name of On, they changed their name to Camel and their first gig was at Waltham Forest Technical College, London supporting Wishbone Ash on 4 December.
    In August 1972 Camel signed with MCA Records and their eponymous debut album was released six months later. The record was not a success and the band moved to Decca Records.
    In 1974 they released their second album, the critically acclaimed Mirage on which Latimer showed he was adept on flute also. Although failing to chart at home, it gained success on the U.S. west coast, prompting a three month tour there.
    The instrumental, orchestrated concept album The Snow Goose 1975, inspired by the Paul Gallico short story of the same name, was the breakthrough which brought Camel wider attention. Gallico, who loathed smoking, thought the band were related to the cigarette brand and threatened to take legal action. Camel avoided this by adding the prefix Music inspired by... to the album s cover. The album s success led to a prestigious sell out concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London, with the London Symphony Orchestra in October 1975.
    A fourth album, Moonmadness in 1976, continued the success, but was the last to feature the original line up. Mel Collins saxophone augmented the band for the subsequent tour, beginning an eight year association. Drummer Ward was pushing for a more jazz direction and the demand for this on Ferguson led to his departure in early 1977.
    Richard Sinclair (previously in Caravan) replaced Ferguson and this line-up released Rain Dances (1977) and Breathless (1978). The latter the last album to feature Bardens, who announced his departure before the supporting tour. He was replaced by two keyboard players: Dave Sinclair (cousin of Richard and also from Caravan) and Jan Schelhaas (who, some years later, was to join Caravan). The Sinclair cousins both left the band after the tour, replaced by Kit Watkins and Colin Bass.
    This line up recorded the more commercial I Can See Your House from Here (1979), an album which caused problems for the advertisers due to its irreverent cover, displaying a crucified astronaut looking at earth. Despite some fans reservations about commercial leanings, the album concludes with a ten minute instrumental Ice , showcasing Latimer s lead guitar skills.
    1980s
    Camel returned to the concept album for their next recording. Nude (1981), is based on a true story about a Japanese soldier found on an island many years after World War II had ended, not realising the war was over. Duncan MacKay provided most of the keyboards in lieu of Watkins and Schelhaas, who were involved in other projects, but returned for the tour. This was the first album to feature lyrics by Latimer s future wife Susan Hoover. In mid-1981, Ward stopped playing drums due to alcohol and drug abuse and Camel quietly disbanded. Years later it emerged that Ward had made a suicide attempt.
