Camel Live At The Hammersmith Odeon 1976 is a bonus live recording available with the Deluxe version of Moonmadness.
Camel Live At The Hammersmith Odeon 1976
The 2002 version of MoonMadness included some songs from the live performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 14 April 1976 – Song Within A Song, Lunar Sea and Prepration/Dunkirk.
The 2009 two CD Deluxe Edition extends the tracks from this concert.
CD 1 includes the original Moonmadness studio album plus the single version of Another Night and a demo of Spirit Of The Water plus:
Lunar Sea – 9:50 (originally on the studio album Moonmadness)
Song Within A Song – 7:13 (Moonmadness)
Excerpt From The Snow Goose (First Three Tracks) – 10:41 (The Snow Goose)
Air Born – 4:58 (Moonmadness)
Chord Change – 6:49 (Moonmadness)
The White Rider – 8:51 (Mirage)
Preparation / Dunkirk – 9:22 (The Snow Goose)
Another Night – 6:27 (Moonmadness)
Lady Fantasy – 16:05 (Mirage)
What we have is a nicely balanced set with the 5 long tracks from MoonMadness, 2 medleys from The Snow Goose that total 20 minutes and two songs from Mirage that add up to about 25 minutes. It’s a shame we don’t have anything from their first album.
Live versions of Song With A Song and Lunar Sea were on the A Live Record album but those were from the October 1977 performance. The version of Lady Fantasy on A Live Record was from the October 1974 show at The Marquee in London. However The White Rider and Another Night from this April 1976 concert appear on the 2002 extended version of A Live Record.
