Camel at Aylesbury Waterside 10th September 2018

This is the 6th time I have been able to see the band, this being the first time in 20 years. Well, was it worth the wait??? Oh yes indeed!. I can honestly say this was the best performance I have ever seen. Andy was utterly sublime on guitar, as good as i have ever seen, truly inspirational musicianship and on another level to any guitar player I have ever seen. Colin and Denis are just the most sublime rhythm section, you will struggle to find a better foundation for any music than these two. And that leaves one band member unnamed. Camel’s keyboard player Pete Jones. This man is an outstanding talent, not just keys, but vocals and Sax (check out his work on Rajaz, the hairs on my arms have not gone down yet). Wow, I could bang on for pages and pages. The new Aylesbury Waterside is a fantastic venue with great sound and ambiance, superb. The Royal Albert Hall concert was filmed so a DVD is coming! Can’t wait!!
