    Довольно странно смешивать прог и поп, но этот случай просто исключительный, великолепные мелодии, великолепный вокал, великолепная группа. Правда немного расстраивает то, что после Crime of the Century лирика песен начала заметно упрощаться, но все-таки музыкальная составляющая не ослабла.

    I'm troubled by something - even though there's no mention or record of it, I CLEARLY remember Supertramp playing a concert at the Winnipeg Arena in August of 1983. I was with a partying crew of buddies from Dryden Ont. Canada, we made plans for a week-long excursion to Winnipeg to see 2 concerts within a week - The Police on August 27 1983, and Supertramp a few days later. But wherever I look, even Supertramp's official concert history sources, there is NO INFO on the web about this show. But I was there, along with 7 others, remembered a fantastic show (minus some technical audio issues spanning a few songs) A shot in the dark, just wondering if any fellow ST fan remembers the Winnipeg show to which I'm referring here... cheers and may ST live forever =)
