The brand new issue of Prog is on sale today celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Camel's legendary The Snow Goose album.
It's probably Camel's most famous album and we spoke at length with band leader Andy Latimer about the creation of The Snow Goose, the dealings with novella author Paul Gallico and the band's performance of the album at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
