Camel – Sahara (Leaping Ahead #206)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #206: 160724

[Song from a band seen in 2003]

28 October 2003. A Tuesday night. Astoria, London and Camel’s farewell tour. Well, it was a farewell then – at least until the next tour a few years later! Hard to choose a song for this post but Sahara from the 1999 album ‘Rajaz’ is the one. For me, haunting and melodic though this track is in its entirety, the pace pick-up from 3:51 in is the subliminal moment. There’s a spine-tingling moment if ever I heard one. Happens every time.
