Vinyl Feature: Supertramp - Breakfast in America

An absolute classic of an album by British rock band Supertramp! I ordered this as an unsighted second hand purchase on-line from a dealer in Germany through Amazon and even though it said it was in "very good" condition I really didn't know what to expect. I was therefore very pleasantly relieved when it finally came and after opening it it looked very good, which was confirmed a few minutes later when I listened to it for the first time. It sounds brilliant!

Breakfast in America was Supertramps sixth album and was released on 29 March 1979 by A&M Records.

Breakfast in America won two Grammy Awards in 1980, and was certified quadruple platinum. The album had four hit singles, The Logical Song, Goodbye Stranger, Take the Long Way Home, and Breakfast in America and they sold incredibly well peaking in charts around the World!

It is still the best selling English album of all time in France.

Breakfast In America also won the 1980 Grammy Award for Best Recording Package mainly due to the fantastic cover artwork which was done by Mike Doud.

Even the inner protective record sleeve looks great:

The Logical Song

Side 2

Just Another Nervous Wreck
Casual Conversations
