This Cassette Tuesday is Supertramp's 1997
"Some Things Never Change" cassette.
1979’s “Breakfast in America” by Supertramp is the record that introduced me to the
band. I ended up getting “Crime of The Century” an earlier album that was just as good.
Then picked up their new release in ’82 “...Famous Last Words” which I have to say
wasn’t a big fan since it seemed they went more commercial or pop.
I later found this cassette “Some Things Never Change” from 1997 somewhere I can’t
remember. Most likely it was in a used bin.
This recording doesn’t include co-founder, writer, singer, keyboards, Roger Hodgson
who left in 1982. Most likely they had different opinion on the direction of the band.
Some reasons say because Roger moved to Northern California and it caused a problem
connecting w/ the other members who were living in Los Angeles, CA. Rogers also built
a home studio and was thinking of going solo so that pretty much saids it.
“Some Things Never Change” seems to be more horns and trying to get back to their
roots. Mark Hart replaces Rogers vocals and keyboards. Mark sings lead on 2 tracks
and co-vocals w/ Davies on “Listen To Me Please” that is my favorite track (audio at
bottom of this page). Some other tunes that are pretty good is “C’est What?”,
“It’s A Hard World”, and “You Win, I Lost”.
Produced by Jack Douglas who produced Aerosmith, John Lennon, Slash’s Snakebite,
and many others.
