This review is from: Paris (Audio CD)
The definite live recording from the Davies/Hodgson days of Supertramp; this is a fitting reminder of the powers of a band at the peak of their commercial success. This is reflected in the song selection, which is largely drawn from the band's two most popular albums, Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America.
For those of us lucky enough to have seen them during this era, much is lost visually, especially the delightful Brighton-London train journey during Rudy. However, it is a concert with many visceral delights and with Supertramp's irreverence audible in each rendition, the listener can indulge in the experience, a claim sadly untrue of many live interpretations.
Whilst the road travelled thereafter was patchy at best, Supertramp made their mark big time in Paris and even for the most cynical amongst us; this is a moment worthy of savouring over and over again.
