One of Camel's bandmembers suggested doing an entire album based on a book. A number of books were eligible but the emotional appeal to The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico was so strong they started writing and recording a concept album that would portray their vision of the story. The result, the instrumental The Snow Goose, turned out to be their breakthrough.

This masterpiece climbed to the Top-30 of the British charts, it earned Melody Maker's Brightest Hope award and firmly established the band with a strong and loyal fanbase. 

The novel is a complex story which Camel translates into their improvisational pieces without singing one word. These surging and intricate soundscapes interpret the emotion of the piece on an accessible level and make the album an all-encompassing experience of the Camel-sound!
