Supertramp songs Product Information
This digitally remastered 10-track reissue of Canadian pop band Supertramp's debut release includes "Surely," "It's A Long Road," and "Home Again." Progressive in texture for the most part, Supertramp's debut album became increasingly disregarded as they blossomed commercially through the '70s. The album was the only one on which drummer Bob Miller and guitarist Richard Palmer appeared, replaced by Kevin Currie and Frank Farrell for the Indelibly Stamped release which surfaced a year later. ...See Full Description

Supertramp at their finest. A phenomenal digital remaster makes this one of my favorite CD's with clear, concise vocal and instrumental separation you can almost touch. Forget the later day, commercial stuff...
By Iain S (Avon, CT)
This isn't like later Supertramp albums. The production on this, their debut, from 1970, isn't anywhere as elaborate as say, Crime of the Century. No songs bear resemblance to the big hits they were known for in the mid to late 1970s. The band went for more of a typical prog rock sound here. Several ballads are included like "Aubade", "Words Unspoken", and "Shadow Song", with a couple more "rocking" numbers like "It's a Long Road" and "Nothing to Show". Plus there's the 12 minute plus prog rock epic "Try Again". On this album you still can't mistake Roger Hodgson's high pitched voice, that in itself makes it unmistakably Supertramp. But you can barely notice Rick Davies' voice at all here. The rest of the band at that time consisted of Richard Palmer-James on guitar (he would later join King Crimson as a lyricist during the Larks' Tongues in Aspic period), and drummer Bob Millar. It's too bad that their debut is so underappreciated, as it's not really as bad as the critics and Supertramp fans like to make it out to be. So give it a try.

This CD is for anyone who likes Supertramp. While later Supertramp albums would evolve into a more commercial sound, this disc at times resembles early Allman Brothers because of the jam-band nature of some of the tracks.

||Incredible prog rock masterpiece|
Not sure this one is truly recommended for Supertramp fans, but it certainly is for anyone who's serious about 70's prog music. There's just one thing that could prevent me saying it belongs to the top five prog rock albums (along opuses such as Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother, Caravan's If I could do it all over again..., King Crimson's Red or T2's Boomland): you would not believe me! So your choice is simple: either you stop at the name written on the cover and you miss an incredible masterpiece, or you give it a try.

||Thanks a million!|
This was, in fact, a filled in a real gap in my life. Thanks, the CD is in perfect conditions and It is great! A classical work of Supertramp.
