Digitally remastered edition of this 1979 release. Their sixth album, Supertramp's most popular and successful work, Breakfast in America was released in March 1979, and reached #3 in the UK and #1 in the United States where it stayed on top for six weeks. It yielded the hit singles 'The Logical Song', 'Take The Long Way Home', 'Breakfast In America' and 'Goodbye Stranger'.
After a shaky start followed by several critically acclaimed releases, the English group Supertramp hit the commercial jackpot in 1979 with Breakfast in America
. The album combined the band's FM radio, AOR-rock style with an almost carnival-like nature. Breakfast
gave the band major hits with "The Logical Song," "Goodbye Stranger," and "Take the Long Way Home." The plinking piano and dramatic clarinet runs of "The Logical Song" imparted a comic, yet bittersweet tone to the release as a whole. In another example of the band's devotion to alternative ways to carry their melody lines, "Goodbye Stranger" rings with some of the purest whistling ever recorded. There's also a healthy dose of cynicism running through the 10 tracks with "Just Another Nervous Wreck." --Steve Gdula
