3 stars Given the poor offer to get better videos of SUPERTRAMP, I had to take this one. It consists of 3 parts.

The Story So Far is a documentary part including interviews with band members while the narrator gives a rather simplistic biography of the band. It is very general, lacking in-depth details.

This part is intercepted with the portion of 1983 world tour which gives nice picture of the band live capabilities. Most of the repertoire consisted of the popular songs from blockbuster Breakfast in America as well as the masterpiece Crime of the Century. It is nice to see how Davies, Hodgson and Helliwell frequently change their instruments as well as the leading roles on stage. This is the best part of the DVD and solely for this I would recommend it to all fans and prog lovers!

Additionally there are several video clips from the 1980s representing their downfall after the departure of Hodgson and their sinking into the MTV-style sweet soul pop, with remarkable exceptions such as wonderful Cannonball high shot!

Seyo | 3/5 |
