Camel - 1975 - The Snow Goose

Camel are an English progressive rock band formed in 1971. Music Inspired by The Snow Goose is the third album by the band, released in 1975. The success of the White Rider suite (based on J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and appearing on the band's previous album, Mirage), inspired the group to write more novel-inspired conceptual suites. The band considered several novels on which to base their next album. For a time they settled on Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse, and some songs were written before the idea was abandoned in favor of Paul Gallico's novel The Snow Goose. The album's name, originally simply "The Snow Goose", was altered to accommodate legal protests by Gallico. The album was originally due to feature lyrics based around Gallico's text, but due to his objections, an instrumental was made instead. The album reached silver status in 1981, and is considered by many to be their most accessible work. It is remarkable for having no lyrics and orchestral (plus rock) instrumentation. This, along with the band's subsequent release Moonmadness, is considered by fans to be the band's greatest albums.
