Supertramp. They really were bloody brilliant.


Were you at Croppers in 2000?  That was fun.
Is that sarcasm?  Undecided  I'd have loved to be there!  Tiara

Lol.  I'm not always sarcastic.  No, it was wonderful (although I had just had a row with my other half and started heading back to the tent only to turn around when I realised what was going on).

We didn't start attending Croppers until 2004, but did see Supertramp elsewhere in 1976 or so.

Probably my favourite band, seen them several times firstly in early seventies when they were on an A&M tour debuting Crime Of The Century supported by Chris De Burgh and Joan Armitrading (or it may have been Gallagher & Lyle?)

We saw him do a solo gig not long after at The Acoustic Festival. We found it quite tedious and left before the end. I do like Supertramp though.

I've seen a video of his solo concert, at least 10 years old admittedly, and thoroughly enjoyed it. If I'm honest though, I'd settle for tedium at the moment as long as it was live tedium. I haven't been to a gig for 11 months Sad

I saw Supertramp supporting Roxy Music at the Stadium in Liverpool in Nov 72. I wasn't impressed. I quite liked Dreamer, but otherwise, not for me.

I saw Super tramp on what may have been the COTS tour. Or it might have been one of those label package concerts.

To be fair, they were only a couple of albums in by then and who ever bought ‘Indelibly Stamped’?

The only time I saw Supertramp was when they supported Ten Years After at Birmingham Town Hall (early 70s) and to be honest, I can't remember much about their set, except it was quite sax heavy. I think they'd just released their debut album. If memory serves, Keith Christmas was also on the bill.

The only time I saw them was 23 August 1975 at the Reading Festival.  Can vaguely recall hearing them sound checking first thing in the morning for a short while.  Other than Dreamer and Bloody well right, I knew nothing much about them.  Think it was raining during thier set, as it certainly did for Yes directly(ish) after. 45 years ago last August.

Me too -that was the only time I saw them. They were rather good if I remember correctly.

Second ever gig was Supertramp at Hull ABC with Joan Armatrading  and The Movies on the Crisis ? What Crisis ? tour
I think I bought the Lp's they were promoting at that gig  but nothing subsequently
Looking back I think I was ready for a revolution in music , which was just around the corner

They had spent an absolute age getting the stage ready (for an acoustic performance) but most of the time was spent building a jungle out of potplants . i think most people had either dropped off or run away from the tarantulasby the time he appeared.

Lost Songs by The kettles aka Merry Hell/Tansads dropped through the letterbox today. Lots of rarely played songs by both bands many with new arrangements and different singers. Nice to hear Pendle Hill live again and john doing an interesting take on the goddess Janet's classic Shes Not Gone. Several vocals by John and Bob, but I would have liked to hear John sing Horses which I have not heard live since my retirement party when he did it for me. Its a song that is very relevant today.

My copy also arrived today, along with When We Meet Again CD single (featuring the Social Isolation Choir - of which I am a part).

Yes, mine too but they are quarantining for a couple of days before I play them.
