"I've got Camel's Footage I, Footage II, Pressure Points, the this disc, Coming of Age. Although the Footage duo has some great archival video, Coming of Age is by far, the best performace by Andy Latimer available on disc. Blistering, evocative guitar, great band, wonderful camera angles capturing the overwhelming majority of Latimer's virtuoso performance.
It's not the old Camel, but if you want the most and best of Latimer, or if you want to buy just one DVD of Camel, or just want to try something new and GREAT, this is the DVD for you!"
A great DVD record of Camel at their second zenith

"Having listened to Camel since the '70s, I went into this purchase with mixed feelings. Frankly, I wondered if Andy was able to pull together a good representation of the Camel sound live that far out from the inception. When you coupled that with the fact that I hadn't heard either Dust and Dreams or Harbour of Tears, which make up the second half of the concert, in their entirity, I approached the DVD with some reservation.
Having watched Pink Floyd's P*U*L*S*E DVD as my last DVD concert, I was primed for the moon. Pulse is one of the highest-budget concert records of ten nights of the largest concert tour and stage show ever. Given that Camel, being a journeyman band, had recorded the DVD on one night at a club, I knew this DVD wasn't going to match the packaging and scope of Pulse, so I set myself up for dissappointment. I needn't have. The intimate setting and packaging of this DVD better matches the music contained. Andy and Co. had a GREAT performance of some very complicated, demanding music and pulled it off spectacularly. This is an excellent concert DVD, a great reintroduction to Camel for anyone who has missed out on the last few years, and well worth the investment.
