Best three albums they have, at least I think. Sure, Breakfast In America is more pop-oriented, but what a great pop record it was, especially in 1979.

Agreed. The other Hodgson/Davies era albums feature some very fine tunes, but I think those three are by far the most consistent. If all pop music could be as good as Breakfast In America, I think I'd hold the genre in far higher regard. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better pop song than The Logical Song. "I said now watch what you say! *clap clap* They'll be calling you a radical!"

Hell, this thread has put me into a Supertramp mood. iTunes marathon time! "If we only had time, only had time for yoooooouuuuuu..."

I'm jealous, Lila! Could have been the farewell tour with Roger in '83 that you saw... Does this stage setup look familiar at all?

I got my old ticket stub album out. I can't remember some of the shows I've seen (most actually )

Los Angeles, the 'Fabulous Forum' 9/23/83'. Loge Section 14, Row V, Seat 11

It was actually the last stub I put into my book, 20+ years ago


ETA: Here's 'Hide In Your Shell' live from 1977

Wow, '83. That must have been a great show.

Not a bad band by any stretch of the imagination, but they do get annoy after a while.

I confess I used to think: Scooter's Logical Song > Supertramp's Logical Song

But then I grew up

Ok, I'm now the proud owner of 'Crime of the Century' and 'Breakfast in America' on CD

However, I still don't have the song 'Give A Little Bit'. Can anyone help a sistah out?

Played 'Crime of the Century' several times this week, remembering why it's so awesome But for some reason, Hide In Your Shell keeps standing out for me. I need to crank it when no one's around. It just really moves me. I'll have to (re)learn all the words (I'm bad with words, even some U2 songs ) Just wanted to post & bump the thread too

Haven't even opened Breakfast in America yet
