Supertramp - Retrospectacle: The Supertramp Anthology - Universal Throughout the early seventies, Supertramp had a number of best-selling albums, which culminated into their 1979 masterpiece, Breakfast in America. On the strength of hit singles like The Logical Song, Goodbye Stranger, and Take the Long Way Home, the album sold over 18 million copies worldwide and made Rick Davies and his boys a household name.

There have been several Supertramp Ďbest ofí compilations in the recent past, but none have been of this magnitude. This latest compilation Retrospectacle: The Supertramp Anthology covers all of the bandís bases and stands head and shoulders above the rest. This well-chosen collection spans three decades, but focuses intently on the five great years that cemented the bandís reputation as one of the world's foremost rock acts.

The seventeen song offering predominantly spawns everything from their early rock ní roll (Crime of the Century, Aintí Nobody But Me) to the period when they matured and refined themselves into a well crafted hit machine. Singles like Itís Raining Again, The Logical Song and Goodbye Stranger, well-crafted, tightly bound pop songs that skyrocketed to the top of the pop charts during the late '70s and early '80s, are on this compilation as well. That alone will make it worthwhile for a casual listener.

The more hardcore fans will notice some favourite album and fan favourite missing ~ for them thereís a thirty two track limited edition two CD set being released of this compilation as well ~ all the Supertramp they could ever need in their collection. Still with this single Disc, you get a great deal. For itís chock block with songs you've probably heard before and might even know the words to, but didn't know it was Supertramp. This one gets two thumbs flying up all the way.
