Inspired By... Magnetic Sound Machine Plays The Snow Goose (CD)
In 1975 the British prog band Camel recorded their third album The Snow Goose. The success of The White Rider suite ? based on Tolkien's book The Lord Of The Rings - which appeared on the previous album Mirage (1974), inspired the group to write more novel-based conceptual suites. They considered several novels that might qualify for the next album. For a time they settled on Siddhartha (1922) by Hermann Hesse; some songs were written before the idea was abandoned in favour of Paul Gallico's novella The Snow Goose (1941). The album's name, originally called The Snow Goose as well, was altered to Music Inspired By The Snow Goose to accommodate legal protests by Paul Gallico.

As with many concept albums other bands tried to make their own version of this strong conceptual piece of music. One of them is Magnetic Sound Machine, an Italian band formed in 2005 that take their influences from several musical styles. Apart from prog rock they also incorporate jazz, fusion and elements from post rock and electronic music. Their debut album Chromatic Tunes appeared in 2008 followed by Chances & Accidents two years later. After this they started to work on their version of Camel's masterpiece. In December 2012 they recorded the music composed by Latimer and Bardens live in a recording studio. They did what Camel didn't dare to do, namely adding spoken pa
