It is endearingly Camel that it is neither Tolkien, nor Tolstoy or even Hesse which provides the conceptual framework for this 40-odd minute instrumental oeuvre, but rather Paul Gallico's ("available in all good book stores") Snow Goose. It is the novella's sweet and tender sentiments that are approximate for a band whom for all tense and purposes don’t "rock", but rather glide in mirage.
