Crime Of The Century was the first of the many peaks in Supertramp’s illustrious career; an album that had everything to prove and tunes that effortlessly straddled the world of pure pop and progressive rock. With the unmistakable blend of the group’s principal songwriters, Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson, the album married the sweetness of Hodgson’s ‘Dreamer’ (the band’s first big hit single) with the grit of Davies’ similarly beloved ‘Bloody Well Right.’
This 40th anniversary celebration features the remastered original album, mastered and cut by Ray Staff at Air Studios plus the previously unreleased concert from London’s Hammersmith Odeon in March 1975, mixed from the original tapes by Crime of The Century’s original producer Ken Scott. It showcases the band at the zenith of their powers, playing of all of Crime of The Century and introducing numbers from their forthcoming album, Crisis . . . What Crisis?
This 2CD Deluxe Edition contains both the remastered original album and Live at the Hamersmith 1975.
