Esplorando i dischi : Camel – Rain Dances

Rain Dances è il quinto album in studio del gruppo rock progressive inglese Camel. È stato pubblicato nel 1977 su Gama Records / Decca Records e ha apportato un grande cambiamento alla formazione della band, sostituendo il bassista Doug Ferguson con l’ex membro dei Caravan Richard Sinclair e aggiungendo il sassofonista Mel Collins, ex King Crimson.
