iTunes Editors’ Notes

For a truly exhaustive chronicle of Camel's career up until the mid-'80s, try the 59 track Rainbow's Endcollection, but the considerably more concise anthology Echoes does an excellent job of hitting the highlights of the British prog heroes' history. Like the aforementioned box set, Echoes includes key cuts from every one Camel's first 10 albums, charting the evolution of their structurally sophisticated, highly melodic sound, as defined by bandleader Andy Latimer's graceful guitar lines and Pete Bardens's colorful keyboard work. We follow the band up to the creation of its all-instrumental masterpiece, The Snow Goose and then into the relatively more commercial sound of their late-'70s and '80s albums, but while Rainbow's End stops there, Echoes picks up the story after Camel's long layoff, by ending the collection with cuts from the band's 1991 reunion album, Dust and Dreams. If you want to get a feel for one of the most influential prog bands to emerge from England in the '70s without delving into box set territory, Echoes is ideal.

Customer Reviews

Finally!!

This is British Progressive Rock at its best. I hope iTunes adds more titles from them, including Mirage (who could forget 'Lady Fantasy'?) and others. Thanks for this!

Buy the Songs

Don't rate a good album 1 star just because it's by song only. I'm rating this 4 star album 5 stars to bring up the average rating. This is a good compilation of a good prog rock band. Very spacey music. Freefall is one of the catchiest prog songs ever. Regarding the one star review; just buy the songs individually; and rate the album after you listen to it.

Echoes

Please add more Camel! I've been looking everywhere!!! This group never enjoyed the fame they deserved, but collectors I know own every album they put out. Many are carefully preserving the vinyl and need to transition to more durable music media, so the need is there for MP3/CD. From the era of theme albums, the song "Drafted" from the "Nude" album remains one of my personal favorites. This collection offers a good sampling of some of the better-known songs, but there's a wealth of material that I hope will be added here. If you're new to Camel, "Mirage", "Flight of the Snowgoose", "Raindances" and "Nude" are are must-have albums for anyone who likes Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons and similar.
