Camel Poll Results

During April and May 1997, the readers of the Camelogue Mailing List took part in a Camel Poll, which was initiated and arranged by Brett Tiesmaki.

Each reader was allowed to vote for his three (3) favourite Camel albums and his three favourite Camel songs. The replies varied, as some voters prefer to consider the whole Snow Goose as a single song, or voting for A Live Record/Never Let Go for expressing their view of the original studio recordings as an added value...
But what really counts is that a list of favourite albums was finally made, compiled and delivered by Brett. To quote his own words:
