PREPARING THE RECORDING
I recorded this show standing in front of the stage, 6th row from the front.
It was a full house, but the audience was quiet, especially during The Snow Goose. During the second
set there is some audience that you hear; not distracting though.
There were some issues with the recording. During the second half of the second set the were some
distortions in the recording; I think one of my cables has a connection problem. I found another
recording on DIME by Floydiandolf. I used this to patch the glitches. Some are hardly noticeable, but
especially Lady Fantasy needed lots of small repairs. But I figured it's better listenable with them.
So a big thanks to Floydiandolf for his recording. Otherwise this might not have seen the light of day.
Tracks were slightly EQ-ed and volume was a bit corrected, but I kept the dynamics in tact.
I use no compression. After correction, tracks were split at sector boundaries.
Flacs are tagged for convenient playback on compatible systems.

ABOUT THE CONCERT
After his illness Andy Latimer decided to take the Camel beast back on the road for a short tour.
Luckily he didn't forget the Netherlands, so we got to see and hear the revival of The Snow Goose.
They played the 'enhanced' version, with some songs rearranged and extended. The new CD release also has
this new arrangement. It works very well for me. The other songs take us through the Camel catalogue.
Not all albums were done (no Nude), but I understand they had to choose. The set worked well and sound was pretty good (though a bit reverb of the hall). The occasional flaws are present, but all in all a very
enjoyable concert of a band I thought I'd never see again live. Hope you enjoy my recording of the return
of The Snow Goose.
