iTunes Editors’ Notes

After years as cult heroes, U.K. art rockers Supertramp sanded off their artier edges and amped up their pop tendencies for their 1979 breakthrough, Breakfast in America. The next year, the band released Paris, which documents a stop in the City of Lights on their Breakfast tour. But while the set list here includes the recent singles that were monopolizing the radio at the time ("The Logical Song," "Take the Long Way Home," "Breakfast in America"), this luminous live recording is dominated by older material, which much of Supertramp's newly expanded audience was probably experiencing for the first time. What the newbies hearing the shows and subsequent album learned was that even though some of Supertramp's earlier tunes were extended affairs full of prog-rock twists and turns ("Fool's Overture," "Crime of the Century"), all of them were laced with the same sort of pop charms the aforementioned hits possessed. Case in point: the frothy "Dreamer"—the studio cut had stiffed as a single in the U.S. several years earlier, but the vivid live version became a major hit in 1980.

Customer Reviews

Itunes rob us at gunpoint!

So I can buy 15 of the 16 songs individually for 14.84 or I can get the last song for 5 more bucks! Fools Overture is a great song being held hostage by these thieves!

Any true rock fan must have at least one Supertramp album in their collection. Thus, if you currently have none, this is the one to get. A superb live album by any measure, with great renditions of the best of their repertoire. Great energy from start to finish. Satisfaction guaranteed. My personal favorite track: Hide in your shell - this particular version blows the studio one clear across the atlantic.

"Not as GOOD as Breakfast in America"

This re-mastered audio classic is much better than listening to old album pops and scratches of the 80's music. But you will find poorly edited clips missing from the original live album, such as some of the dialog leading into songs, "Not as GOOD as Breakfast in America".
