In U.S., Supertramp has 10 charted hits on Billboard Hot 100, and 9 charted albums.
Supertramp’s “Breakfast In America” was the biggest selling album in the world in 1979. It spawned several hit singles and went on to win two Grammy Awards and sell in excess of 20 million copies. Following the album’s release Supertramp embarked on a 10 month world tour which arrived in Paris at the end of November. This show from the Pavillon de Paris was both filmed and recorded. The 1980 live album Paris was based on the concert on November 29, 1979, while this Live in Paris concert was actually filmed on December 1. If you already have the live album, this concert disc is an additional bonus: you actually now own two separate concerts.
Although the live album Paris is readily available, the film was never released. The concert itself is the holy grail for every long suffering Supertramp fan. Now for the first time, Supertramp’s Live in Paris 79 arrives at blu ray with MPEG 4 AVC 1080i 1.85:1 encode. The footage was transferred and restored to full HD from the original 16mm film, and the result is simply remarkable. There are lots of details. You can clearly see the facial expression of individual members playing their instruments ever so effortlessly. Colours are quite vibrant. Skin tones are natural. Blacks are inky. (4/5)
Live in Paris 79 is available for the first time with DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio tracks, plus LPCM Stereo.Read more ›
was more than satisfied by this release ...............
picture is excellent, 16mm source, excellent grain, to my eyes, no DNR or edge enhancement to be seen ..... colour is a little bit faded ...
nice long shots, where one can get a feeling of actually watching the band perform .....
sound quality is great.
supertramp fans will appreciate this release for sure.
one should not expect hyper real modern day HD sharpness ...........
very happy they did not 'mess' with the picture here, like they did with the recent doors hollywood bowl bluray .... where they removed all grain and artificially sharpened the image ...... no waxy blobs here thank goodness.
The Live in Paris CD is from the same tour but recorded on different night(s). Both the CD and this DVD are near the end of their tour. The band is very tight and very "on", and the set list of songs is fantastic. The songs are from their 4 most famous 1970's albums (Breakfast in America, Crisis What Crisis, Crime of the Century, Even In the Quietest Moments) and the band performs the songs true to the studio recordings. The footage is quite good and the camera is usually where is should be, focussed on the band the entire time.
Another reviewer commented that a BluRay also exists for a bit more money but that the quality itself of the original concert probably wouldn't look much better anyways. Although I have not seen the BluRay to compare it with the DVD, I tend to agree. I don't think it will look any cleaner on BluRay, although it may sound even better on BluRay (and it already sounds quite good on DVD).
There really isn't a lot available from Supertramp in their prime, and rumour has it the film will be pulled or discontinued. So don't hesitate to grab it if you find it for a good price (around $20 or less). It's a shame Hodgson and Davies can't settle their differences, as it would truly be a fantastic reunion and a concert worth seeing. I saw Hodsgon a couple years ago and he sounded as good as ever - check him out if you can.
I've seen Roger on numerous occasions and Supertramp as many times . But this has to be there best .
There was a tightness to the band that you dont get from any other live performnce and there is a great intensity to the delivery from Rick and Roger . It was like they were trying to out perform each other . Maybe the cracks in the relationship were beginning to appear or maybe I'm just over reading it !!
Bob siebenberg drumming is powerful as is john helliwell Sax and Clarinet playin .Good to see Dougie Thomson enjoying and contributing to the essential sound of Supertramp
Anyway it's 5 stars from me

DTS-HD soundtrack is very good but not great. Video is typical 1979; grainy and no where near Blu-Ray standards, so don't get fooled by the fact this was transferred onto BR.Published 11 months ago by Alpina Roadster-S
