** 2021 Repress. Thick card glossy sleeve, 180 gram vinyl ** In August 1972 Camel signed with MCA Records and their eponymous debut album Camel (1973) was released six months later. The record was not a success and the band moved to the Deram Records division of Decca Records. The roots of Camel go as far as 1964, when the Latimer brothers Andrew and Bryan form part of a band called The Phantom Four, after gaining some fame, the band changes their name to Strange Brew, a when the bass player Graham Cooper reaches the band. But things were about to change, Ian Latimer and Cooper leave the band and Doug Ferguson joins. At this point drummer Andrew Ward joins the crew and the seeds were growing in this new Blues oriented band called simply The Brew, and at last in 1971 with the arrival of keyboardist Peter Bardens Camel is officially born.
