Supertramp Bits&Pieces

USA: 1979

Source: Audience recording from one of the two concerts played at Seattle Coliseum on either April 16 or 18, 1979 during their Breakfast In America tour. It does not appear that this label mixed up concerts if a band played two shows at Seattle Coliseum.

This was the second time the band had been bootlegged inside a two week period, resulting in a double album – see From Lunch To Ecstasy on Ken’s IMP label – and the second time on two consecutive tours that they had been bootlegged in Seattle – see Supertramp LIVE on the Wizardo sub label death records

Quality: Described as a “nice recording” by one of the eBay sellers.

Looking at the set list and comparing it with the other existing audience tapes, it becomes clear that this is not the complete show. All BIA shows on this leg started with “School”. On the other hand, not every concert saw “Take the long way home” being performed, the first track here, so Seattle got lucky that night. So, the first five songs are missing:

1 School
2 Ain’t Nobody But Me
3 The Logical Song
4 Goodbye Stranger
5 Sister Moonshine

then we get the concert in sequence until “Breakfast…” and then missing the rest and finale with “Fool’s Overture” and “Crime Of The Century” unfortunately, just like From Lunch To Ecstasy

CSNY OWN

CSNY OWN 2

“150 pressed on MCV from TMOQ plates (of 71013). Exs.” 

Reissue of one of the earliest CSNY bootlegs. As this adds two more tracks (the studio version of “Ohio” and a live take of “Find the cost of freedom”), I would guess that it was released after Dittolino Disc’s # 0003: Bluebird Live / Wooden Nickel on Canyon Records:

Supertramp 1978 TourSupertramp 1978 Tour b

A couple of mistakes here:

Supertramp toured in 1977 and ’79 only, so this is likely from 1977 (they played Maple Leaf Gardens on 1st and 2nd of June that year). The final song is likely “Asylum” and not “Poor Boy”.  Rated “Exs” in Hot Wacks, described as “very good aud. recording” by a different rater.

If the location is correct, this would be a K&S exclusive release – somewhat of a rarity.

Roxy Music Hammersmith 79 b

 

Correct venue listed on sleeve. Source: BBC broadcast from 18 May 1979, making it the latest and youngest concert recording to be released on K&S and helping us to pinpoint  the release date for this and the following titles as from summer of ’79 onwards. Another K&S original release.

Original set list:

01 Manifesto
02 Trash
03 Out Of The Blue
04 A Song For Europe
05 Still Falls The Rain
06 Mother Of Pearl
07 Ain’t That So
08 Angel Eyes
— Ladytron (missing)
09 In Every Dream Home A Heartache
10 Casanova
11 Love Is The Drug
12 Re-make/Re-model
13 Do The Strand
14 Editions Of You

 

While researching this title I found that the great Roxy Music site Roxyrama.com has now been taken offline – too bad, it was the best.

Some Death/Wizardo releases containing more recent recordings getting reissued. Based on # 23, the date was 1978 or 79 for this batch of K&S titles.

024:  PETER FRAMPTON IN LONDON

 

Peter Frampton In London

And then we come to this LP, only mentioned in the HW appendix. Was there an original release on death records that was missed in HW? Or was this just handed over to K&S as a planned but never finished death records release? # 521 was still available and I have added it to my original death records listing found here.

I am not sure what is actually on this album as there only seems to be one broadcast performance, “Show Me The Way”, live from the Pavilion in Hemel Hempstead, 26 October 1976 (see the link). In addition, there was a BBC recording from 1975, which had been previously booted on TKRWM 1810 gemini

If anyone knows more, please leave a comment.

Supertramp 77

The above poster was for the Portland, OR show at the Paramount Theater on April 17 ’77. Now the insert below for what is supposed to be the Seattle recording says “Paramount” also, someone must have gotten confused.

The Death LP has:                                                                                                                                            Side 1: Dreamer / Rudy (Gs) / Fools Overture Side 2: Lady / Crime Of The Century

Described as “Vgs”. My issue is that I have looked at every surviving recorded fragment from this tour and “Rudy” was never played or captured at any other time and it is singled out here for worse quality. Could it be from a different source and year (it was part of their 1976 shows)?

Supertramp From Lunch to Ecstasy

Interesting how bootleg labels can give accurate information regarding the date and venue when they want to, as in this case.

[A bit of a low point for ZAP cover design imho.]

It was then reissued as part of the 900 series (omitting the last track on side 1 on the cover list):

And one more time on Saturated Recordworks under this new title:

From a torrent description:

Supertramp
Alien
1976-03-20 [see comment below]
Santa Monica Civic Center, Santa Monica, CA
liberated bootleg “Alien”, Saturated Recordworks

01-School
02-Bloody Well Right
03-Sister Moonshine
04-Ain’t Nobody But Me
05-Dreamer
06-Rudy
07-A Soap Box Opera
08-Lady

VG+/EX sound on this. Sounds like soundboard to me. Nothing was done to edit,
equalize, or else tamper with this sound. It comes directly from the vinyl LP
“Alien”. Some clicks and surface vinyl noise remain. The cover says “recorded
on the 1976 tour of the United States”, but I did some searching and found the
above date listed for this bootleg and I assume it’s correct.

Regarding the date, March 20 ’76 is usually quoted, even on the breakfastinspain Supertramp aficionados website, however, I believe that this date is wrong and I present exhibit A:

Either March 31 or April 1 1976 seems to be the correct date. This is not from a KBFH broadcast.

I would often see this European LP in the summer of 1978 when I started to develop a keen interest in the bootleg vinyl dealer that showed up at the local Saturday flea market. Hot Wacks states that this was copied from the ZAP title (in a poetic justice reversal of the usual events):
