A live performance - the second "official" bootleg by Camel Productions. This is a two-disks set containing a complete, untouched live performance that took place in Enschede, Holland, September 8th, 1992 (although the cd booklet claims September 5th). Excellent sound quality, tight performance and a span of 2 hours give the listener the gripping sense of "being there", making this live album stand out from the other live records. Dust and Dreams, being performed in its entirety, is in my opinion even better than the original studio release, with Burgess' excellent drum support, and the band's ability to reproduce so many parts of the different instruments in this piece, making it hard to believe there are only four people on the stage.

*Latimer presents the songs in the order of their releases on Camel's albums, from 1973 to 1993. There is, however, no song from Stationary Traveller. Susan informs that Camel "didn't perform anything from Stationary Traveller on that tour, for no real reason. The material just didn't fit into the set time or flow-wise."
* Apparently, fans asked Camel Productions what instruments were played in the live gigs. CP answered this in their Nature of the Beast newsletter. Here it is:
