Camel – Rajaz (1999)
I’m not going to say anything more about this album other than the word ‘Sahara’. Heard this on a Capital FM show late one night. Loved it but had no idea what it was or who it was by. Frustrating! Then they played it again a week later and this time told me. The album was snapped up the very next day.
‘Sahara’ is one of those tracks that quite simply does it for me. Every time. Can’t really put my finger on what that is. But when the guitar solo kicks in at towards the end, it hits something deep in my stomach and tears come almost event time. It is everything an instrumental need to be. And in absolutely every way. It quite simply is!
