ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
With their sixth album, Supertramp hit gold and became a monster on the rock-and-roll circuit. “Breakfast in America” came out on March 29, 1979 and featured three big tunes that were played on the radio for several years straight: “The Logical Song,” “Goodbye Stranger,” and “Take the Long Way Home.” The band featured the same quintet: Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), Roger Hodgson (guitars, backing and lead vocals), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Dougie Thompson (bass), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion). From this point forward, Supertramp would be the toast of the town and the arduous work they put into this amazing success would make them superstars. We hope you will seek this one out by visiting whatever site it is you do for the absolute best in rock music; you will be glad you did.
