30/12/13 – Camel – Excerpts From The Snow Goose – The Old Grey Whistle Test – 1975

Video Of The Day

Camel Royal Albert Hall

The Snow Goose catapulted Camel into the spotlight and at this point they were not only selling out live concerts but also breaking into the album charts. This performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test is allegedly the day before I saw them perform live at the Liverpool Stadium as a 17 year old in 1975. Here they are playing excerpts from the 43 minute piece broken down into 10 minutes for the programme and incorporating a woodwind section.
