3 stars SUPERTRAMP debut is interesting and enjoyable piece of music, done in a typical early "progressive" rock sound. Dominated by keyboards and guitars, the whole album features Hodgson lead vocals and is obvious product of his romanticist, melancholic songwriting. Highlights are "It's a Long Road", with wonderful organ and guitars sounding like CARAVAN or later CAMEL, "Maybe I am a Beggar" and "Nothing to Show". "Try Again" is a meandring, long-winding jazzy piece that often sounds lost. "Surely" miniatures open and end this unjustly neglected package. Although not very essential for prog in any way, "Supertramp" is extremely worthy album that should be recommended. All the composing and production flaws aside, "It's a Long Road" alone can justify a purchase. ***1/2
