    Awesome! That is a serious lineup for a tribute album like this, proving the popularity of the tramp amongst the highest ranking of rock musos, not just the fans!

    I play in a supertramp tribute here in the uk called ‘Logical Tramp’, check us out at http://www.logicaltramp.co.uk

    I wonder if morse will lay down some serious shreddy solo over it?!

    How weird…. JLT on a Tribute album. Loved Supertramp. Actually I look forward to the JLT version of ‘Bloody Well Right’. Hey, when it’s right it’s right. Should be good. Bet I could give him a run for his money though…..

    Why listen to a tribute album when you can see Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, live in concert? Roger is the singer/songwriter of the band’s greatest hits to include Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, School, It’s Raining Again, Fool’s Overture, and so many more. See Roger on his Breakfast in America Tour. He is selling out shows all over the globe and receiving fantastic reviews from media and fans alike. That voice of his sounds even better today than on my Supertramp vinyls and oh, what a show! Don’t miss it! See Roger’s YouTube channel at http://www.YouTube.com/MrRogerHodgson.

    Hello Hartmut!

    They’re similar, yes. I also liken the piano intro to Cross Eyed Mary so much I’ve caught myself mistking them a few times. Not a huge Supertramp fan but whatever, I’d still rather hear how JLT sounded with Alan Pasons some years ago when he did the shows with them. Morse and Supertramp, perhaps more his speed really. The Aviator tends to sound like them at the bridge, and his acoustic playing in general on that sounds a lot more like them than Purple any day. Even the second Kansas album he did was actually very good, and both bands are AOR Prog. Purple is not. This fits something he’d do much better than what he’s been repeating with them.

    Something tells me Purple’s album is going to be inspired, hopefully he’ll be a part of it instead of against it. But then they could wing it and still be interesting, I barely hear his chords in Rosa’s Cantina at all, and that still sounds hot!

    I’m actually supposed to be seeing Hodgson on the 10th at a nice outdoor venue at the Zoo. I’m predicting it will blow the Lindsey Buckingham gig down.

    I Have followed the Roger Hodgson concert since 2010. His shows are wonderful! This year is his world tour with the show “Breakfast in America”​​, has been a huge success. The “Super Tramp” remains alive in the voice of the great ROGER RODGSON !!
