Camel  1981  Nude

Nude is the eighth studio album and a concept album by the English progressive rock band CAMEL. The album is based on a true story of a Japanese soldier (Hiroo Onoda) marooned on an island in World War II who doesn't know that the war is over. Nude derives from his family name Onoda. Most of the album is composed of instrumentals with only a few tracks containing lyrics. The album's lyrics were mainly written by Susan Hoover, except Please Come Home, which was written by Andrew Latimer. It was the last CAMEL album to feature original drummer ANDY WARD. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England on September 1980.
