Prog

Roger Hodgson is an amazing musician. One of the most underrated of the 70's prog movement. Crisis? What Crisis? is my favorite album by them. Even In The Quietest Moments in close second.

Hide In Your Shell, Sister Moonshine, Even In The Quietest Moments and Just A Normal Day.

A truly underrated band. Supertramp has my full appreciation.

Oh yeah? Roger took one of my requests, laughing at the enthusiastic way I screamed it out. Okay, yours is better.

Great band. I don't think they get half the credit they deserve, partly because they're associated with their poppier sound of the late 70s / early 80s (which is great, but some people just can't get past it). Roger wrote some fantastic music and lyrics. Rick?...not so much. I usually skip Rick's songs, although he did write a few that I love. My faves: Asylum, Babaji, Breakfast In America, Brother Where You Bound (the ONLY post-Hodgson song I like, and only because David Gilmour plays on it), Child Of Vision, Crime Of The Century, Don't Leave Me Now, Dreamer, Easy Does It, Even In The Quietest Moments, Fool's Overture, Goodbye Stranger, Hide In Your Shell, It's A Long Road, Know Who You Are, The Logical Song, Lord Is It Mine, Nothing To Show, Rosie Had Everything Planned, School, Sister Moonshine, A Soapbox Opera, Take The Long Way Home, Try Again.

Roger's great in concert. Saw him from third row last year. I can honestly say it was the most amusing show I've ever been to. He jokes all the time between songs! Such a sweet, funny man.

You two are so lucky.

You're right about Supertramp not getting enough credit. I think it was more the fact that they weren't able to reach the prog stardom of Pink Floyd, King Crimson and so on. When the pop came they couldn't find a spot in that part of the musical landscape either. They were a spectacular band that deserved more recognition.

I think Roger outshined Rick a lot but Rick's vocals on most songs were on par with Roger's. Asylum, Downstream, Poor Boy and others are reflective of Rick's talent. That said, Roger is amazing and I'd love to see him live.

Living in a city where it seems like every third song played on classic rock radio is Supertramp, I do indeed appreciate Supertramp.

^ I don't know if we own any of their stuff, and I only know a few songs, but I'd probably know more songs if I heard them

Ask mom and dad to get you Crime Of The Century or Breakfast In America. Great albums. If you like either of those, Even In The Quietest Moments would be a good third choice.

We probably have them on vinyl somewhere

I did get to see them tour in the early 80s - can't remember which tour/album. Probably Breakfast In America.

I think the big deal back then was to get the Mobile Fidelity vinyl pressing of 'Crime Of The Century'.

Maybe Maddy should start making her Christmas list now


ETA: Now listening to Hide In Your Shell. I miss the old faves. May have to restock...

I think I'd choose Breakfast In America, although Even The Quietest Moments has Give A Little Bit on it....

IMHO Quietest Moments > Breakfast In America.
