Camel - Harbour Of Tears

SKU 23-CP 006
"1996 concept album by this veteran prog band held together by their guitarist Andy Latimer. The album's title stems from Cobh Harbor in Ireland, a beautiful deep water port in County Cork where hundreds upon thousands of fractured Irish families immigrating to America took their final look at Ireland."

"This album has an Irish feel to it, not something I can remember encountering with Camel previously.
There is a short instrumental called "Under the Moon" which just leaves me speechless - it's got be one of the most amazing things I've heard in my life. The tone of the guitar is magnificent (add in some sweet reverb). Along the lines of Dave Gilmour, it's right on the edge of feedback and as I listen it's as if I can hear the colors changing in the notes. It's just so emotional. THIS is music.
Then there's a musical break of maybe 15 seconds half way into the song "Eyes of Ireland" that again just swells over the listener and has a similar effect. This is the stuff that makes Camel CD's worthwhile in my mind."
