“Let me show you the nearest signpost, to get your heart back and on the road”
So Let’s Talk About Supertramp
I remember clearly when my brother Andre received Crime of the Century for his birthday (1975?). We had never heard a song like School. We had never heard anything so depressing (and grooving) as Rudy (the best song about a fat guy). Could Bob Benberg have hit those drums any harder?
Hide In Your Shell: my god, my god they used a theremin!
Crisis What Crisis: Ya, the real crisis was the boner on the back cover, ummm… An album that unfortunately falls in the shadow of Crime: not deserved because it too is so briliant.
Even in the Quietest Moments: Boy, I only recently bought this again. Partly because it brought back bad memories (Theresa would have been exposed to this). Give a Little Bit (Go away, Clay)… Even in the Quitest Moments is really beautiful, Downstream still makes me cry.
Breakfast in America: There most commercial offering. And let’s begin by saying Roger Hodgen’s is such a beautiful guitar soloist.
After that, I love Take the long way home, and Is It Mine was such an anthom at my high school.
Let’s hope they tour again…
