En 1971 Los tres integrantes de lo que era hasta ese entonces "The Brew" Andy Latimer (Guitar), Doug Ferguson (Bass) Andy Ward (Drums) estaban de acuerdo de la necesidad de buscar un tecladista y pusieron un aviso en el Melody Maker.


El 20 de septiembre de 1971 Peter Bardens respondió al anuncio con un extenso curriculum para su edad, había tocado para Shotgun Express (Rod Stewart), Them (Van Morrison), Peter B's Looners (Peter Green & Mick Fleetwood) y había grabado dos álbumes con su nombre.

Poco tiempo despues decidieron tomar el nombre de Camel.
El 4 de Diciembre de 1971 tocan por 1° vez con el nombre de "Camel" en el Waltham Forest Technical College como soporte de "Wishboun Ash" con:


Andy Latimer - Guitar
Peter Bardens - Keyboard
Doug Ferguson - Bass
Andy Ward - Drums

En agosto de 1972 firman con MCA para grabar su primer disco, que a diferencia de los álbumes conceptuales siguientes, este es una colección de canciones individuales de compuestas principalmente por Andy Latimer y Peter Bardens.

Grabado en Morgan Studios

Camel estuvo de gira con este disco alrededor de 9 meses, y fue reconocido por el público y la prensa especializada por el exente sonido en vivo.



'Mirage' 1974
                          

Segundo albúm de Camel grabado con el sello Deram propiedad de Decca Records.

Basado en la novela de J.J.R. Tolkien 'El Señor de los Anillos'
Este es uno de los mejore álbumes de Camel, con un sonido muy trabajado por momentos psicodélico pero ya mostrando un sonido muy Camel, con una muy buena comunicación entre la guitarra de Latimer y los teclados de Bardens.
Por primera vez aparece Andy Latimer con la flauta traversa.

En Estados Unidos se edito con otro cover ya que hubo problemas con la marca de cigarrillos Camel que amenazo con demandar a la banda, pero la discográfica llego a un arreglo a espaldas del grupo, ya que la fabricante de cigarrillos pensó que le servía de publicidad.
La tapa original fue reemplazada por la de la foto de abajo.

Album Notes
Prog outfit Camel is revisited on the reissue of their album, MIRAGE.This edition includes bonus tracks and has been remastered.Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, flute); Peter Bardens (vocals, piano, celesta, organ, Mellotron, mini-Moog synthesizer); Andy Ward (drums, percussion).Audio Mixers: Paschal Byrne; Mark Powell.Audio Remasterer: Paschal Byrne.Audio Remixer: Bill Price .Liner Note Author: Mark Powell.Recording information: Island Studios; The Marquee Club; The MArquee Club, London, England.Photographers: Mick Rock ; Keith Morris.Unknown Contributor Role: Andy Ward.With their second album, Mirage, Camel begin to develop their own distinctive sound, highlighted by the group's liquid, intricate rhythms and the wonderful, unpredictable instrumental exchanges by keyboardist Pete Bardens and guitarist Andy Latimer. Camel also distinguish themselves from their prog rock peers with the multi-part suite "Lady Fantasy," which suggests the more complex directions they would take a few albums down the line. Also, Latimer's graceful flute playing distinguishes several songs on the record, including "Supertwister," and it's clear that he has a more supple technique than such contemporaries as Ian Anderson. Camel are still ironing out some quirks in their sound on Mirage, but it's evident that they are coming into their own.

'The Snow Goose' 1975



Álbum conceptual basado en la novela homónima de Paul Gallico. Con el lanzamiento de este álbum Camel también tuvieron algunos problemas legales ya el autor del libro amenazó con demandarlos ya que consideraba que el grupo alentaba al consumo de cigarrillos y el era un acérrimo enemigo del tabaco.
Por lo que el titulo cambio por: Camel music inspired by 'The Snow Goose'
Totalmente instrumental.

Decca Records


A fines de 1974 los integrantes de Camel se reunieron durante 15 días en una casa de campo en Devon Inglaterra y allí escribieron el álbum.
En enero de 1975 comenzaron con el trabajo de producción en los estudios Island con David Hitchcock en producción y Rhett Davies como ingeniero de sonido. Luego fue regrabado en los Estudios Decca con la participación de la The London Symphony Orchestra dirigida por David Bedford .
El álbum sale a la venta en abril de 1975 llegando al puesto 22 en el Reino Unido y manteniéndose en el chart durante 13 semanas.
En USA se lanzo en julio de 1975 entrando en el puesto 162 de la Billboard.
El autor de la novela, Paul Gallico amenaza con demandar a la banda por lo que debieron cambiar el nombre del álbum por el de 'Music Inspired by The Snow Goose'.
Paradijicamente ya habían tenido problemas de copyrigth en su álbum anterior 'Mirage' con la marca de cigarrillos Camel, ya que su tapa reproducía la imagen de un cajetilla (atado, paquete) de cigarrillos Camel.

Album Notes
Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, flute); Peter Bardens (piano, electric piano, organ, mini-Moog synthesizer); Andy Ward & Deep Josh (vibraphone, drums, percussion).Liner Note Author: Mark Powell.Recording information: Decca Studios; Island Studios; The Marquee.Unknown Contributor Role: Doug Ferguson .Camel's classic period started with The Snow Goose, an instrumental concept album based on a novella by Paul Gallico. Although there are no lyrics on the album -- two songs feature wordless vocals -- the music follows the emotional arc of the novella's story, which is about a lonely man named Rhayader who helps nurse a wounded snow goose back to health with the help of a young girl called Fritha he recently befriended. Once the goose is healed, it is set free, but Fritha no longer visits the man because the goose is gone. Later, Rhayader is killed in battle during the evacuation of Dunkirk. The goose returned during the battle, and it is then named La Princesse Perdue, symbolizing the hopes that can still survive even during the evils of war. With such a complex fable to tell, it is no surprise that Camel keep their improvisational tendencies reigned in, deciding to concentrate on surging, intricate soundscapes that telegraph the emotion of the piece without a single word. And even though The Snow Goose is an instrumental album, it is far more accessible than some of Camel's later work, since it relies on beautiful sonic textures instead of musical experimentation. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Album Notes
1977 Release From The Group That Has Been Compared To King Crimson and Yes. Brian Eno Contributes Keyboard Parts On 'Elke'; Also Includes The Standout Title Track and 'metrognome' Plus Seven More. The Tour Coinciding With This Release Was A EuropeanSell-Out Extravaganza.

This 10-track, 1977 release by U.K. progressive rockers Camel features "First Light," "Tell Me," and "One Of These Days I'll Go."Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, flute, panpipes, mini-Moog synthesizer, string synthesizer, glockenspiel, fretless bass); Richard Sinclair (vocals); Toots Hibbert (harp); Martin Drover (trumpet, flugelhorn); Malcolm Griffiths (trombone); Peter Bardens (Clavinet, organ, keyboards); Brian Eno (keyboards, synthesizer); Eno (mini-Moog synthesizer, bells); Andy Ward (drums, percussion, background vocals).Audio Remasterers: Anthony Hawkins; Bernie Grundman.Photographer: Trevor Rogers.The band's fifth release, Rain Dances is Camel at its best, offering the most consistent and representative package in their saga. The addition of Caravan-cofounder Richard Sinclair proves profitable, as do a few colorist touches by Brian Eno on "Elke." Mel Collins' woodwinds are among the highlights, especially on "Tell Me" and the title track. From beginning to end, this project flows gracefully.
~ Matthew Plichta

'Breathless' 1978



En este disco encontramos un Camel más alejado de su estilo de álbumes conceptuales y canciones progresivas. En este trabajo las canciones son más cortas y claramente orientadas al pop, quizás como una forma de adaptarse a los tiempos donde la música imperante era bailable comenzaba la época de la música disco.
Este es el ultimo álbum en el que trabaja Peter Bardens quien abandona la banda antes de la gira de promoción.

Album Notes
Camel: Andrew Latimer (guitar, synthesizer, vocals), Mel Collins (flute, saxophone), Peter Bardens (keyboards), Richard Sinclair (bass, vocals), Andy Ward (drums, percussion).Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, flute); Richard Sinclair (vocals); Mel Collins (flute, saxophone); Peter Bardens (keyboards); Andy Ward (drums, percussion).Photographer: Trevor Rogers.With Rain Dances, Camel began exploring shorter, more concise songs, but it wasn't until its follow-up, Breathless, that they truly made a stab at writing pop songs. Although they didn't completely abandon improvisational prog rock -- there are several fine, jazzy interludes -- most of the record is comprised of shorter songs designed for radio play. While the group didn't quite achieve that goal, Breathless is nevertheless a more accessible record than Camel's other albums, which tend to focus on instrumentals. Here, they try to be a straightforward prog rock band, and while the results are occasionally a little muddled, it is on the whole surprisingly successful.
~ Daevid Jehnzen

Album Notes
Camel: Colin Bass (bass, fretless bass, vocals); Andrew Latimer (guitar, flute, vocals, autoharp); Jan Schelhaas (keyboards, piano, flute); Kit Watkins (keyboards, piano); Andy Ward (drums, programming, percussion); Phil Collins (percussion).Additional personnel: Gavin Wright (conductor); Mel Collins (alto saxophone); Rupert Hine (background vocals).Recorded at Farmyard Studios, Little Chalfont, England.All songs written or co-written by members of Camel.Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, flute); Jan Schelhaas, Kit Watkins (keyboards); Colin Bass (bass guitar); Andy Ward (drums).Liner Note Author: Mark Powell.Recording information: A.I.R. London (02/22/1981); Farmyard Studios, Little Chalfont (02/22/1981); Hammersmith Odeon (02/22/1981).Although not an honest representation of the band's character, this is undoubtedly their most popular work. The one-time addition of American Kit Watkins produces some fine keyboard lead work. Rupert Hine's resourceful production and appearances by Phil Collins and Mel Collins round out this strong import release. "Survival" and "Who We Are" feature some fine orchestrations, and guitarist Latimer delivers some exceptional lead work on the album's closer, "Ice."
~ Matthew Plichta

'Nude' 1981


Es un álbum compuesto por Andy Latimer y Susan Hoover, es una vuelta al álbum conceptual, en este caso sobre un soldado japones que durante la 2° Guerra Mundial fue olvidado en una isla desierta en el pacífico y encontrado en marzo de 1974, momento en el que se rindió y volvió a su país. Algunos dicen que se trata del soldado Shōichi Yokoi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoichi_Yokoi o Hiroo Onoda http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiroo_Onoda pero la verdad es que no es sobre un soldado en particular ya que en esos años hubo varios casos de soldados japoneses encontrados con vida.
En una nota radial con el periodista Mal Reding que entrevistó a Latimer cuando Camel cumplía 30 años comenta lo siguiente:sobre este álbum: Latimer - "The music was hard work, but the story was even harder because we wanted to take it away from the basic Japanese idea and use it on a much more universal level so it wasn't actually just related to a Japanese soldier. It could have been any soldier and we worked very hard on the story to get it into shape."
Básicamente lo que dice Latimer es que si bien se inspiraron en la historia de un soldado japones lo que buscaron era una identidad universal, que pudiera ser cualquier soldado.

Las letras fueron escritas por Susan Hoover quien se casaría luego con Andy Latimer.
Grabado en los estudios de Abby Road.
Gamma Records.
Es un disco donde predominan las canciones instrumentales.

Album Notes
Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, koto, flute, keyboards); Colin Bass (vocals); Chris Green (cello); Mel Collins (flute, piccolo, saxophone); Herbie Flowers, Herbie Floers (tuba); Jan Schelhaas (piano); Duncan Mackay (keyboards); Andy Ward (drums, percussion); Gaspar Lawal (percussion).Recording information: Abbey Road, Studio 3 (09/1980).A new, larger version of Camel debuted on Nude, a concept album about a Japanese soldier stranded on a deserted island during World War II, and stayed there, oblivious to the outside world, for 29 years. More ambitious than the preceding I Can See Your House from Here, Nude is in many ways just as impressive. Although it's a less accessible effort, it has a number of quite intriguing passages, particularly since it boasts heavier improvisation, orchestration, and even some worldbeat influences. It's not as spacy as Camel's earlier progressive rock records, yet it is quite atmospheric, creating its own entrancing world.

'The Sinlge Factor' 1982


Grabado en 1982 ya sin Andy Ward que deja el grupo y quedando Andy Latimer como líder y único miembro fundador. En este álbum toca el órgano Peter Bardens en particular en la canción Sasquatch, dejando atrás los conflictos con Latimer y demostrando que seguían siendo amigos.
Sin Colin Bass, Latimer se rodea de músicos de sesión como Anthony Phillips de Genesis, Chris Rainbow y David Paton de Alan Parsons Project y Francis Monkman Curved Air.
Para los que escucharon Alan Parsons es notable como se nota su estilo en este álbum.
Todas las canciones son escritas por Andy Latimer y Susan Hoover salvo 'A heart Desire/End Peace' A. Latimer-A. Phillips.

Nota curiosa: En el cover del disco se podía leer debajo del nombre de productores, ingenieros y agradecimientos, la siguiente nota:

'ANDY WARD Does not appear on this album following a serious injury to his hand.'
Traducción: ANDY WARD no aparece en este álbum por un seria lesión en una mano.

Lo cierto es que Andy Ward tenía serios problemas con el alcohol y las drogas y había tenido un intento de suicidio. Fue idea de Andy Latimer dar esta justificación, para protejer a su amigo por no estar presente en este álbum.

Album Notes
Camel's STATIONARY TRAVELLER concept album features 10 tracks inspired by the division of cold war Berlin.Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, electric guitar, 12-string guitar, classical guitar, flute, panpipes, drum programming); Chris Rainbow (vocals); Ton Scherpenzeel (accordion, piano, synthesizer); Mel Collins (saxophone); David Paton (fretless bass); Paul Burgess (drums).Audio Mixers: Greg Ladanyi; Haydn Bendall.Recording information: Riverside Studios, England.Although Stationary Traveller is a concept album, it musically falls into line with its predecessor The Single Factor, which found Camel trying to refashion themselves as the Alan Parsons Project. Where The Single Factor suffered from Camel's attempts to write pop hooks, Stationary Traveller finds the band breaking down the barriers, opening up their relatively concise songs with long, atmospheric instrumental passages. The album's lyrics, which were written by Susan Hoover, is about the divided Berlin and its political, emotional and physical divides. Often, the lyrics and music -- which work as individual entities -- don't quite work together, since they follow different emotional directions, yet the record remains a worthwhile listen, especially since it features Andy Latimer on pan flute. ~ Daevid Jehnzen

Album Notes
1991 Release.
DUST AND DREAMS is a 1991 release by U.K. prog-rockers Camel, a concept album based on John Steinbeck's THE GRAPES OF WRATH.Personnel: Andy Latimer (vocals, guitar, flute, keyboards); David Paton, Mae McKenna (vocals); John Burton (French horn); Don Harriss, Ton Scherpenzeel (keyboards); Christopher Bock, Paul Burgess (drums).Audio Mixer: Bruce Lampcov.Recording information: Downstairs At Harry's; EMI Abbey Road Studios, London, England; Upstairs At Harry's, England.Editor: Eric Caudieux.Camel packed up their bags and moved to California, with the dust of a seven-years span of quiet on their backs, and the dream of creative freedom through their own label, Camel Productions, ahead of them. Inspired by the John Steinbeck novel "The Grapes of Wrath" (and one can only hope that Camel's westward move went smoother), Dust and Dreams is exactly the sort of labor of love that makes a private label worth having. Elegiac, literate, largely instrumental in spots, this stuff would make most label executives' eyes glaze over. It's also the sort of finely wrought music that will delight Camel fans who still fondly imagine their band in the Nude. Despite the long absence since Stationary Traveller, many familiar faces return to Camel's ranks: Susan Hoover, Ton Scherpenzeel, Colin Bass, David Paton, and Paul Burgess. Andy Latimer, of course, remains the pivotal figure, writing the songs, taking the vocal leads (his sleepy, deep delivery suggesting a Watersed-down version of Pink Floyd), driving the music with his masterful guitar work. This last point is worth resting at a moment, since Latimer's guitar has grown audibly since we last heard him. While some of the guitar passages are classic Camel (e.g., "Cotton Camp"), Latimer is just as likely to invoke the image of David Gilmour ("End of the Line") and Steve Hackett ("Broken Banks," "Hopeless Anger"). Like Nude, Dust and Dreams initially divides its time between songs and instrumentals before ceding halfway through to purely instrumental music. The 18 tracks are interconnected, separated only by a four-second delay before "End of the Line," effectively marking a first and second act. The introductory "Dust Bowl" is a quiet overture reminiscent of Brian Eno, the closing "Whispers in the Rain" is actually an epilogue (the real curtain comes crashing down on "Hopeless Anger"). If it all sounds like a structured play, that's because Dust and Dreams is. The disc exists as a single work broken into two sections, inextricably bound together in the composer's mind (themes return, specific points of action take place). In retrospect, it's probably a wonder that Nude ever got off the ground, and few studios would have taken a flyer on the equally ambitious Dust and Dreams. Thank goodness Andy Latimer had the fortitude to see this through to completion; it is the mature work of an indomitable dreamer, if a little downbeat. It lacks the immediate melodies of Nude (which many would concede is the better album), but the victories here are harder won and thus to be prized by fans who were still scanning the horizon for the shadow of Camel's tall spirit.

'Harbor of Tears' 1996



Este debe ser el álbum más personal de Andy Latimer ya que trata sobre la inmigración Irlandesa a América. El mismo cuenta en una entrevista que en cierto momento de su vida cuando falleció su padre  se dió cuenta que su familia era muy chica (solo tenía un tío) y que no conocía otros familiares ya que estos se habían ido a Norte América o a Australia.
Tambíen está relacionado con su mudanza a California, ya que en este  tiempo Andy se había ido a vivir a Mtn View California.

El puerto de las lagrimas (Harbor of tears) hace referencia al puerto de Cóbh en Irlanda, de donde salian los barcos con inmigrante que se despedían de sus familiares para siempre.

La gira de presentación de este disco queda registrada en el DVD 'Coming of Age'
