Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Supertramp came about from the support of a Dutch financier and an add placed in a British music magazine. The band formed as a quartet with Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), Roger Hodgson (guitars, backing and lead vocals), Richard Palmer (guitars/vocals), and Robert Millar (drums/percussion). This is a fascinating debut by a manufactured band, rather like how Procol Harum came about, a group of musicians who did not know one another from their youth. The self-titled debut came out on July 14, 1970 and received favorable reviews. We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you do for the absolute best in rock music. You will enjoy it.
