Camel is a progressive rock band from Great Britain that was founded in 1971. The band is fronted by singer and guitarist Andrew "Andy" Latimer. The founding members include keyboardist Peter Bardens, bassist Doug Ferguson and drummer Andy Ward. Camel gained notoriety for their melodic compositions with long instrumental parts. The self-titled debut album was released in 1973 and Camel went on to achieve top positions in the British and US charts with albums such as Mirage (1974), The Snow Goose (1975) and Moonmadness (1976). From the 1980s onwards, Camel moved closer and closer to the mainstream with shorter, catchier titles. With albums such as The Single Factor (1982) and Stationary Traveller (1984), Camel enjoyed success, particularly in their British homeland. After several line-up changes, the band disbanded in the mid-1980s. At the beginning of the 1990s, Camel reunited with a new line-up. The band also released albums again: Dust and Dreams (1991), Harbour of Tears (1996) and Rajaz (1999). From the 2000s onwards, Camel concentrated on live concerts. Overall, the band became quieter. To mark the first release 50 years ago, the compilation Air Born - The MCA & Decca Years 1973-1984 is released in 2023. The longplayer climbs to number 40 in Germany.
