1987: A&M CD 2507/DX 862
Ive never quite made up my mind about Supertramp. On one hand, I remember hearing their stuff in the 1970s and thinking most of it was thin crap, but on the other hand I recognized some impressive beauty on tracks such as Take the Long Way Home and Goodbye Stranger, and the live version of Dreamer (which I heard on the radio more often than I heard the studio version) was quite exhilirating at times. Ive compromised in getting this hits CD, allowing myself to take my time dipping into their work in a broader spectrum and to see how I feel about revisiting my earlier negative impressions.
