Unlike the previous releases, "Retrospectacle" focuses on material from the band's entire career including their poor selling first two albums and the single they released prior to "Crime of the Century". The first disc takes 1 track each from the band's first two albums. We get a rare single the band released prior to "Crime of the Century". "Crime" deservedly gets five tracks while "Crisis? What Crisis?" has four from this fine album. "Even in the Quietest Moment" also features four strong tracks including the hit single "Give a Little Bit". For fans of the band the real highlight here is the release on CD of the band's virtually unheard single "Land Ho"/"Summer Romance". This was the first single recorded by the band's most successful line up and the same one that would record every album from "Crime of the Century" to "Famous Last Words". If you've leard Roger Hodgson's solo album "Hai Hai" you've heard "Land Ho" as Hodgson did a virtually identical remake of the original version but with different production touches. A note to fans who may have purchased the single--this is not the original 1973 mix of the song but, instead, a previously unreleased 1975 remix when the song was being considered for inclusion on "Crisis? What Crisis?". The flip side of the single features Rick Davies on lead vocals on the R&B inflected "Summer Romance".

The second disc opens with six tracks from "Breakfast in America" ("Another Nervous Wreck" should also have been included but that's just my personal opinion). We get "You Started Laughing" the only new song on "Paris" and then three tracks from the most popular line up's swan song "Famous Last Words".

The way Supertramp has been depicted in recent years gives an indication that they were some sort of embarrassment in pop music history. Case in point is Homer Simpson's affection of the group. This compilation proves that though Supertramp did have some art-rock tendencies, they produced some great tunes.

This compilation is very complete; basically anything Supertramp did of any worth, with the possible exception of Hide in Your Shell, is here. Personally I would have preferred the live version of Dreamer that became a hit in the US, but overall, the song selection is perfect. The six tunes from Breakfast in America are for example the obvious choices from that album.

The music is, well, mostly good in mine opinion. There are a few tracks I don't care that much about, especially post It's Raining Again. I did, however, re-discover some ones again. Special mention goes to Take the Long Way Home, with its majestic opening and incredible harmonies. The craft of the production is faultless, these guys and the studio were a match made in heaven. Most music produced today, 30 years later, lacks the great production in most aspects as Supertramp did in their heyday. Despite being studio wizards, the creative aspect of making music enjoyable was yet in place. Listen to Goodbye Stranger, with the organ intro, the drums added and the snapping sound into the second verse. Give a Little Bit on the other hand is pure bright guitars driving the song.

I have another Supertramp collection called Classics - 25th A&M Anniversary. That compilation has some edited tracks which appear here in their full length editions. The sound quality is also vastly better on this new compilation, as if a carpet was put over the speaker whilst listening to the old version.

Format: Audio CD
The name of the band "Supertramp" was taken from W. H. Davies' 1908 novel "The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp".

"Mr. Davies is no propagandist of the illusions of the middle-class tramp fancier. He does not tell you that there is honor among tramps. On the contrary, he makes it clear that only by being too destitute to be worth robbing and murdering can a tramp insure himself against being robbed and murdered by his comrade on the road. The tramp is fastidious and accomplished, audacious and self- possessed; but he is free from divine exploitation and the endless discountenance of being passed by as useless by the life force that finds superselfish work for other men." Editor's review of "The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp".

From my review of "Breakfast In America", I stated that "Starting life as a British progressive rock band, Supertramp shifted gears and became a real pop band. Supertramp was formed in England in 1969 by keyboardist/vocalist Roger Davies. 1974's "Crime Of The Century" became the band's first big smash, followed by "Crisis! What Crisis?" and "Even In The Quietest Moments". 1979's "Breakfast In America" was a huge success on both sides of the Atlantic, and is considered by most people to be the band's best album." Despite chart success the band never attained stardom; it was remarked at the height of their popularity that Supertramp was the best-selling group in the world whose members could walk down any street and not be recognized.

And, now, in 2005 they have given us their "Retrospectale: The Supertramp Anthology".
