In August 1972 Camel signed with MCA Records and their eponymous debut album Camel (1973) was released six months later.
Superb and highly memorable songs lavishly accented with deep keyboard (organ & Mellotron) sounds creating a very spacey atmosphere. Songs are uniquely longer in duration than much of their later material adding a different dimension and feel.
Their debut album offers deep and warm sounds with solid musicianship throughout. Put this one into the "Essential Progressive Rock" category.
