Banda britânica de rock progressivo, com umas pitadas de jazz rock formada em 1971. O grupo lançou seu primeiro álbum em 1973 pela MCA Records. Desbandaram por um breve período em 1981 mas retornaram com mudanças na formação. Em 2003 o Camel fez sua turnê de despedida. Camel quer dizer camelo em inglês e como o período do auge da banda também coincidiu com o auge da propaganda de uma marca de cigarros que empregava a figura de um camelo fumando, os discos da banda foram boicotados pelos antitabagistas, o que precipitou sua decadência.

Camel LIVE 2013 - Never Let Go (acoustic/electric special) - Amsterdam (Andy Latimer Full HD stereo) [6:47] Text

Veröffentlicht am 27.10.2013
Full HD Stereo video of Camel performing "Never Let Go" in a special acoustic / electric version during their 2013 The Snow Goose Tour at De Melkweg, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2013_10_26. The original Never Let Go Airborn is featured on the 1973 album 'Camel'. Official Camel website:

This is the first Camel tour since 2003. Best Known for their concept album "The Snow Goose" (1975), a concept album after the book of Paul Gallico. Andrew Latimer and Camel define the best progressive rock has to offer to this day. Beautiful melodies, Latimer's ability to always hit that exact right note at the right time, less-is-more, diverse arrangements, music with feeling, great guitar tone, changing time signatures (but only if it serves the song), instrumentals and vocal songs and general superb musicianship. Grat musicians from other prog rock bands have in the past played in Camel. These include Ton Scherpenzeel (Kayak), Richard Sinclair and Jan Schelhaas (both from Caravan). Camel is a major influence on many bands today, including heavy prog bands such as Opeth.

Camel is by far my favorite band, with Andy Latimer and Pete Bardens my favorite composers.

Andrew Latimer: guitar, vocals, flute, keyboards

Guy LeBlanc: keyboards

Information on the Camel Snow Goose Tour 2013:
English prog-rockers Camel present a complete performance of their breakthrough concept album The Snow Goose for the first time since their 1975 concert at the Royal Albert Hall -- followed by a selection of fan-favourites.

The evening pays tribute to former band member Peter Bardens who died of cancer at the same time as frontman Andrew Latimer was battling a terminal illness. Ten years later, Latimer has regained health and is willing to celebrate a career that spans over four decades. This two-set show will also embrace compositions recorded throughout those years in a personal covenant of appreciation for a deeply rewarding life of music.

Andrew Latimer, the unwavering vanguard of the group, will be joined by long time band member, Colin Bass (bass vocals), with Denis Clement (drums), Guy LeBlanc (keyboards) plus special guest Jason Hart (keyboards).
