There seems to be a major resurgence of interest in 1970s music as today's 15-25 year olds rediscover music from that decade. I grew up in the 70s and my friends' teenaged sons and their friends are now frequently asking me about 70s bands and looking for lesser known bands and albums from that era.
Supertramp is one band I've told them about.
For those of us who were around in the 1970s, Supertramp is hardly a "lesser known band"; these guys filled stadiums and arenas back in the mid to late 1970s and early 1980s. But the younger guys I talk to only know Supertramp, if they know about the band at all, from hearing tracks like "The Logical Song" on classic rock radio stations.
To help rectify that situation, I'm putting up reviews of four Supertramp albums I tell these younger guys to check out: Crime of the Century, Crisis! What Crisis?, Even In The Quietest Moments and Breakfast In America.
All four of these albums get 5 star ratings from me. Excellent material; not a weak track on any of these four albums.
Supertramp is a hard band to categorize. They had a very unique sound and, for me at least, it's difficult to come up with other bands to compare them to. A lot of their material has been posted on YouTube if you want to give some of it a listen before you buy it.
But the four albums I've mentioned are all excellent and all worth including in your music collection if you're discovering or re-discovering 1970s music. Highly recommended!
