5.0 out of 5 stars It's About Time, 30 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supertramp: Live In Paris '79 [Blu-ray] [2012] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I grew up listening to this band. This concert shows Supertramp at their absolute best and is a must-buy for anyone who appreciates their music. The 5.1 sound mix is superb and the picture quality is suprisingly good. It's very similar in quality to the Dire Straits Alchemy release from a couple of years ago.

In terms of the concert, it's hard to believe sometimes that there are just five musicians on stage.

I have to say though that it is massively frustrating being a Supertramp fan. This release has taken 32 years to appear despite numerous campaigns from the fans to get it released. Even now, there is wrangling amongst certain band members. I'm sorry, but fans like myself have made this band what they are today. Sometimes they have complete contempt for their fanbase and that annoys me immensely. Roger Hodgson is a very talented musician but appears to thrive on constantly whinging about some trivial matter. It's true that the band broke an agreement in performing his songs but it is slightly hyporcritical to then launch a "band" solo tour where he is the only recognisable member of Supertramp. If he wants to hear his songs performed in their proper context then he should never have left the band in '83 and he should put his differences with Rick aside and get back on stage or in the studio with the other members.

Ignore the writs and wrangles and buy this release.
