What Crisis? (Full Album) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCXL6Nu139M Crime of the Century features the cream of Rick Davies' and Roger Hodgson's songwriting, was the first of the many peaks in Supertramp's illustrious career; an album that had everything to prove and tunes that effortlessly straddled the world of pure pop and progressive rock. The significant change that happened with Supertramp on this album was that Hodgson and Davies had each found their strength as songwriters and were writing alone. With the unmistakable blend of the two songwriters – Davies' and Hodgson's – work, it married the sweetness of Hodgson's 'Dreamer' -- the band's first big hit single -- with the grit of Davies' similarly beloved 'Bloody Well Right.' In 'School,' 'Rudy,' and the title track, the band – Davies, Hodgson, John Helliwell, Bob Siebenberg, and Dougie Thomson – helped define what would soon be known as 'Adult Oriented Rock.' This was -- and is -- not just an album that showed Supertramp's increased maturity, but a timeless gem marked by the incredible melodies and thoughtful lyrics of Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies. 'Dreamer' also became the band's first hit single. "I'm fortunate to have written songs that have become hits without ever trying to write one," Hodgson says. "I've never sat down and said 'OK I'm going to write a hit song.' Inspiration comes in many different ways. Usually it comes when I get out of the way losing myself in the sound of the instrument I am playing – it's almost like being in a meditative state. With 'Dreamer,' the inspiration was born out of excitement and just erupted out of me." Hodgson continues, "Looking back, it was quite serendipitous that as a young songwriter with so many dreams I had my first hit with a song named 'Dreamer.' It was certainly a thrill to hear it being played all over the radio. Creating our reality, I've since realised, often starts with our dreams." 'If Everyone Was Listening.' Another of Hodgson's philosophical musings, 'If Everyone Was Listening' reaches back to Shakespeare's As You Like It adage ('All the world's a stage, and all the men are merely players') for allegorical inspiration. "It's all simply a play," says Hodgson, "The world is the stage for all of us, and the song is more about just becoming aware of what is really real in life. And it's a longing for love in a world that is falling apart." Hodgson added, "To this day it has always been my ambition as an artist to try to make the world a better place through my music ever since The Beatles inspired me by how they made such a difference in the world." Hodgson, one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969. Roger was the driving force behind what fans call the "golden years" of the band that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon with album sales in excess of 60 million. He wrote, sang, and arranged the enduring rock standards such as "Breakfast in America," "Give a Little Bit," "Take the Long Way Home," "The Logical Song," "Dreamer," "It's Raining Again," "School," and "Fool's Overture." Roger Hodgson, co-founder and legendary voice of Supertramp, delights audiences around the world when he performs. Roger is currently on his world tour, performing a variety of shows with band, with orchestra and solo!
