The Enid - In the Region of the Summer Stars. 1976 England

If one can imagine Camel, not as a rock band, but rather a true symphonic classically oriented group, then In the Region of the Summer Stars would have been the result instead of The Snow Goose. Contrary to what you might think, especially if one has been exposed to The Enid prior, is this album most certainly rocks out on occasion. This is about as true a symphonic rock album as you'll ever hear, minus actual symphony instruments. In other words, it's not like William Sheller either. A very refined, majestic album. Not one for hard rockers, no sirree.

Personal collection
CD: 2006 WHD (Japan)

I believe this CD is the 1984 "partial re-record" version. I'll have to hear the actual 1976 recording again to compare. It's been many years since I last owned and heard that version.
