5.0 out of 5 stars Being in Paris Will Make You Feel Logical August 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Supertramp's ivories were sure being tickled on a November night in 1979, just another concert in a huge tour prompted by the chart topping success of their latest album "Breakfast in America." Before an extremely excited audience at the Paris Pavilion, Supertramp delivered a colorful performance, captured here on the double live album simply titled "Paris," released in 1980. The group is in great condition, and just as enthusiastic as the appreciative audience. The magic of the album is not found in major variations or re-arrangements (because there are hardly any at all), but rather in the pure charm of a Supertramp performance. The English supergroup gives vigorous, dynamic readings of their hits such as `The Logical Song,' `Take the Long Way Home,' and `Bloody Well Right' and some of their most essential album pieces including `A Soapbox Opera,' the grand `Fool's Overture' and a dramatic version of `Crime of the Century' which contains even more feeling than the already powerful studio version. Another highlight is the lovelorn, jazzy `You Started Laughing" which features great melancholy saxophone work from John Helliwell. Bassist Dougie Thomson and drummer Bob C. Benberg shine with great musicianship, and the keyboards and vocals of songwriters Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies give the renditions their trademark Supertramp sound. The spoken banter to the audience is charming as well, though to understand most of it, one must be fluent in French.

While "Paris" may not offer a wide variety of new variations, it remains an alluring item, and after all there are few musical experiences that are as worthwhile as an evening with Supertramp. The music here is catchy, dignified, often moving, and always rich in taste. The entire group as a unit pour their respective personalities into these masterful performances to give create the unmistakable quirky-yet-sophisticated English pop that made them such an entertaining admirable band.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Reason Why November 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There's a reason why every review of this disc gives it 5 stars. Because it is truly an example of a classic live document from one of rock's more creative groups - Supertramp. The song selection as well as placement AND execution, makes this one a no-brainer. no. You know what makes this one a no-brainer? It is a great LIVE disc. So often I hear a live disc and i'm turned off because the 'magic' somehow eludes the live reproduction. This is definitely not the case with Paris. Top of the shelf walk down memory lane, when Roger Hodgson still graced the stage with supertramp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Excellent and Relevant after all these years... December 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I First heard and owned this collection when it first came out in 1980 on Cassette. I listened to it until it wore out. Now here we are 22 years later and this newly remastered CD version is here... The sound is crystal clear, as if it were just recorded recently... the performances, magical... I never did get to see Supertramp back then, but I could not even begin to imagine what it would have been like to be sitting in that adience and hearing that phenomenal version of "Fool's Overture"... Just listening to it on the CD gives me goosebumps.. The rest of the songs here are just as good, from the opening harmonica on "School" to the closing Harmonica on "Crime of the Century". Highlights along the way are "School", "Ain't Nobody But Me", "Bloody Well Right", "Hide In Your Shell", "Dreamer", "Rudy", "Soapbox Opera", "Long Way Home", "Fool's Overture" and "Crime of the Century".
It really is amazing how much each member of this band contributed to this effort... The drums and bass are rock solid, it seems like most of the band contribute backing vocals, and they are excellent at reproducing the keyboard-heavy arrangements. I'm thinking in several places, three of them are playing keyboards (including the end of "Crime of the Century" where there also is sax... so maybe Dougie is playing some keyboard too?). Anyway.. if all you've heard of Supertramp are their late 70s hits from Breakfast in America, you'll be extremely impressed at how much these guys could accomplish... if you're more of a fan, there's no reason why you don't have this already... sit back, turn down the lights and enjoy... Bon Soir Paris....

5.0 out of 5 stars Supertramp In Paris...Ooh La La! September 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Supertramp's double live album from 1980, "Paris," is a wonderful live set, capturing the band at the peak of their popularity while they were on tour for their 1979 smash hit album, "Breakfast In America," at a time when co-leader Roger Hodgson was still with the group. When you consider that the possibility of Hodgson returning to Supertramp these days is highly unlikely, "Paris" becomes all the more an important live document of the band, indeed. Many great Tramp classics are included in this live set, such as "School," "Ain't Nobody But Me," "The Logical Song," "Dreamer," "Rudy," "Take The Long Way Home," "Fool's Overture," and "Crime Of The Century," plus one exclusive song, "You Started Laughing," not found anywhere else. Hodgson & co-leader Rick Davies sing their hearts out and play their respective keyboards with great passion, and Hodgson also serves up some incredible fretwork on the guitar. Co-horts John Halliwell on sax, drummer Bob Sibenberg & bassist Dougie Thomson have terrific interplay with Hodgson & Davies, helping to bring the band's great melodic music to life in tremendous fashion. Just like on their studio albums, the band totally cook live in concert, too. And the album's remastering treatment here is quite a blessing, giving a clarity to this live recording that wasn't heard before. It's almost like being at the concert itself, sitting alongside all of those lucky French Supertramp fans."Paris" is a fabulous Supertramp concert that you'll want to experience again & again. If you weren't lucky enough to see the band on their most successful tour ever, then listening to this album is definitely the next best thing. Supertramp live in Paris...ooh la la! :-)
