#cameltheband was here in #istanbul at #zorlupsm and it was a great 3hrs #concert . "you are such a wonderful audience!" #andylatimer saying when they took to the stage for the 3rd time as they can not refuse persistent applauses #instagram #nowplaying #playingnow #camel🐫 #andrewlatimer #denisclement #petejones #ladyfantasy #STATIONARYTRAVELLER was released in April of '84. Flush with critical acclaim of the album, #CAMEL were once again on the road. Former CAMEL bassist #ColinBass returned to the UK, after having moved abroad in #1981. Bass got in touch with Latimer and the former bandmates patched up past differences. #ChrisRainbow joined the tour and #PaulBurgess (Jethro Tull, 10cc) who had approached Latimer prior to recording 'STATIONARY TRAVELLER' did so again for the tour. Although not fond of touring, Ton Scherpenzeel never let it show. Ton made a superb addition to CAMEL that thrilled KAYAK and CAMEL fans, though his fear of flying would severely limit his time with CAMEL to the disappointment of fans and musicians alike. Meanwhile, producer #MikeMansfield had heard the band and wanted to include CAMEL in his upcoming television series, #MirrorImage for the UK's Channel 4. Video recording plans mingled with tour production and an atmosphere of excitement followed throughout the tour and carried on into post-production for the live album and video that was to follow. CAMEL participated in the video recording of extra visuals for the #broadcast and the pleasure of this experience concluded the year on a high note. The #live #performance #video and CD of the 'STATIONARY TRAVELLER' tour was appropriately called #PRESSUREPOINTS . CAMEL wanted to include the entire concert but due to lighting problems on the night of recording, the first half was too dark for Mansfield's approval so only the second half of the performance made it to broadcast and a video cassette. Astonishingly, the earlier portion of the concert would actually be erased by #PolyGram and lost forever!
