5.0 out of 5 stars 'Crime Of The Century'......Not To Release It !....., 1 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supertramp: Live In Paris '79 [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
I have been a Supertramp since the mid 70's and saw the classic line - up at Plymouth ABC and Wembley Arena and have seen Rick ,John and Bob's Supertamp a few times and Roger both solo and with band......and will carrying on going to see them as long as they perform shows......This release will please all Supertramp fan's, it's taken almost 33 years for us to see it and yes, it's worth the wait....Peter Henderson and Russell Pope have done an amazing restoration job.
I have read Roger's 'rant' about this release and have to say that I just can't share his opinion this time......the DVD is fantastic, this is Supertramp at their very best, the quality of their musicianship is obvious and to describe them as well-drilled is a real understatement. Highly recommended.....

There are quite a few things about this DVD that were disappointing to me. It's great to have this released and yet the omissions in it lead me to believe there was something quite unethical about how it was all put together and why the other band members didn't keep working with Roger on it. He was part of it and it had nothing to do with differences between Rick and Roger for why it was delayed in coming out. My question is Why would you want to not allow the creative input from one of the co-founders like Roger who was cooperating and working on the project in the beginning. Why stop that process and then turn around and put it out without it? It doesn't even make any sense unless they just didn't want to give him credit in the first place. Greed maybe? More for me if he's not part of it kind of thing? So we'll never know what this would have looked like and how incredible it would have been, what more incredible material, and information about the songs and the history and who knows what else could have been part of this to make it even better. That is after all what I think Roger was trying to accomplish and what we're all missing out on now.

Life is short. Roger's been too busy touring to get involved properly. I understand his point of view but clearly the fans are excited about this. Haven't seen it yet. I was too young to see Supertramp at their peak so it will be nice for me to have a taste of those special years albeit on a DVD.
