Prog Review 18: The Snow Goose – Camel

Another day, another prog record. This time under the suggestion of one of my viewers, I decided to purchase this seminal album by Camel. This is the first album I’ve ever heard by Camel – oh the shame – and so it was interesting to discover a band for the first time.

David Bedford R.I.P.

I just heard that composer David Bedford has passed away. I came to him via his association with Mike Oldfield and remember at the height of my record collecting days (late 80s-early 90s) being completely entranced by his “The Odyssey” album. I was due to see him in November when he was due to appear with Roy Harper, but alas that moment has passed. I was really looking forward to it too.

This is a track that he and Oldfield did in 1977.

And here’s a link to his website.
