4.0 out of 5 stars Roger's Rites Of Passage November 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After taking several years off from the music business, former Supertramp singer Roger Hodgson got back into the saddle with 1997's "Rites Of Passage," a live album recorded near Hodgson's home of Nevada City, California, featuring 8 new, previously unheard songs, plus a few Supertramp hits and a couple of other songs contributed by Hodgson's band members (including his very talented son Andrew Hodgson, who plays drums for most of the album). "Rites Of Passage" isn't really a "proper" new album from Hodgson, but it's a very excellent live performance, and the new songs are great, including the catchy "Every Trick In The Book," the punchy "Showdown" (which Hodgson would later record for his 2000 album "Open The Door"), the beautiful "Don't You Want To Get High," and the magical, majestic "Time Waits For No One." Supertramp faves "Take The Long Way Home," "The Logical Song," and "Give A Little Bit" are all given superb treatments (featuring 'Tramp sax man John Helliwell), and there's also a terrific moment as Hodgson steps aside and lets his son Andrew take a solo spotlight at the piano & microphone with his very lovely song, "Melancholic." For any diehard fan of Roger Hodgson and Supertramp, "Rites Of Passage" is a major treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roger gives us more than a Little Bit September 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard about this release during an interview with Roger on NPR late one night back in 1997. He previewed a few of the tracks on that radio show and I knew I would purchase this CD: "Rites of Passage". A few months passed and nothing appeared in the record Shops, I would have to explain to the young clerks who Roger Hodgson was, have them look this new record up on their computers under Roger's name and/or Supertramp to be told time and time again nothing was available. Over a year after I listened to the radio Interview I located "Rites" as an import CD and I never did spot this in any record stores before 2003.

After all the Fuss of trying to find "Rites" I am very happy to be one of the lucky ones who own this fantastic CD. "Rites" is a live recording from the Miner's Foundry, Nevada City, Ca. where Roger has lived for over two decades now. The hometown crowd is very happy to see our hero and he has a stellar show most of which is captured on this CD. As I still enjoy Supertramp and I'm glad
they still perform, it's not the same without Roger Hodgson.

That said; "Rites of Passage" is a great CD and of the many thousand of recordings I own. This is easily one of the best things I have in my collection, I do hope more people will be lucky enough to hear this great work, but I doubt it.
New songs: "Every Trick in the Book", "Don't You Want to get High", "Time Waits for No One" and "Red Lake" take their place right besides the Supertramp Classics: "Logical Song", Take the Long Way Home" and "Give a Little Bit". This is timeless music, the sound & production are stellar. The band is in top-notch form (including Roger's son Andrew). This is one of the best CD's you have never heard.

By Lethe
Format:Audio CD
I have already talked to you about the ability of Roger Hodgson to recreate the fascinating old moods by Supertramp, live on stage (listen to his new tracks "Time waits for no one" and "Every trick in the book"), but also during the reprisal of classics by his former famous band, when He recaptures so well such pretty musical atmosphere!! (see also my review of his CD SINGLE"Open the door", where I have described my sensations during a live performance that I saw in Milan-Italy 1 year ago).
Well Roger is the sound of Supertramp and the true Supertramp don't exist without him!!
Recommended for the lovers of tasteful, dynamic and aggressive pop!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Roger needed to do this for himself and his fans. July 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Just like Roger Waters can't escape Pink Floyd, Roger Hodgson can't escape Supertramp, and this album is his attempt to deal with his Supertramp past versus his solo future...the only problem is that he didn't include more of his post-Supertramp solo songs, but it's still a very good live album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roger Returns With A Vegenance June 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Roger returns to the music scene with this great live album. Anyone who has seen Roger live can attest to the love and magic that he brings to the stage. Rites of Passage is indeed that for Roger. This artistic triumph proves that Roger is ready to be the force that he once was when he was with Supertramp. His new songs, like Time Waits for No One and Every Trick in the Book recaptures the magic of his music. He also plays some old Supertramp classics and In Jeopardy (from his first album - In the Eye of the Storm).
Welcome back Roger! We missed you.

4.0 out of 5 stars The way Supertramp should sound now January 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
It was even more obvious after listening to this album on how much of an influence Rodger had on Supertramp...even on music he did not write. More importantly, I now more than ever want to see this man in concert. I felt a certain familiarity with the songs i did not know, like Every trick in the book. If you want to listen to songs that reminded you of Supertramp's best period, buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Congratulations for this CD ! You have to buy it ! December 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
At first, forgive my mistakes. I'm used to write in Spanish.
This CD is an excellent compilation. It's composed by some Roger's songs ( like "Every Trick in The Book" and "Red Lake" ) and some Supertramp's ones: "Give a Little Bit", "Take the Long Way Home"....
I reccommend you this CD. Besides, "Rites of Passage" has got the songs' lyrics. I'd like to thank all the group for this marvellous music !
Argentina is waiting for another visit !
