Side one. First Light Peter Bardens, Andrew Latimer 5:01. Andrew Latimer 6- and 12-string guitars, pan pipes. Mel Collins alto saxophone. 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.

It was released in 1977, with Deram Records, and brought a major change to the band's lineup, by replacing bassist Doug Ferguson with ex-Caravan Richard Sinclair and by adding saxophonist Mel Collins, former King Crimson member. Album summary Rain Dances possesses a more jazzy sound than the previous albums. That is mostly thanks to Sinclair's appearance, but also because of the band's aim to change their mus. Jazz-Rock Progressive Rock Art Rock. Camel постепенно уходит в сторону джаза. Изменение в звучание группы приносит саксофонист Мел Коллинз, пришедший в группу в 1976 году. Никогда не считаясь официальным членом группы, он, тем не менее, проводит в составе Camel много времени в студии и участвует в концертах вплоть до 1985 года. Энди Уорд, барабанщик, начинает экспериментировать с ритмами, делая их гораздо более сложными, чем раньше. Songs in album Camel - Rain Dances 2009 Remastered 1977. Camel - First Light.
