    Does anyone have feedback on a pressing that features Libby with two other people black and white picture disc.

      It should be possible to figure out the date the back
      cover photo was taken based on the visible headlines (Glasgow Herald ("Callahan slams tax brakes on spending"); Manchester Evening News ("Boy, 15, Dies In Train Horror"); Oxford Mail ("Secretary Held After Shooting"); the band member in the purple sweater (sorry, I don't know his name); the only part of his newspaper I can make out is its title (Advertiser) and the main headline ("Strike threat to BL jobs")).

        Weird trivia: If you hold the LP front cover up to a mirror the "U" and "P" in "SUPERTRAMP" reads out as "9 11" right over the twin towers, and the cover picture is supposed to be the view from an airplane. I see posts on the internet making conspiracy theories out of this, but as the album came out in 1979, it's obviously just a sad coincidence.

            Easily one of the Best Drum sounds put down on album. Headphone listen require to hear all the detalis. Child of Vision sounds magnificent. States that Supertramp Produced Breakfast in America but who got the perfect drum microphone set up and deep rich drum sound. Was this Davies and Hodgson or the engineers?
            PERFECT ALBUM!

              Such an amazing album from start to finish, beautiful blending of instruments that make for some addictive melodies, great vocal performances by Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies, every track has only grown on me with time

                Is this the version sold at Walmart?
                I can't find any newer pressings to match mine with. It does NOT say "Back to Black" on this one.

                  Big rock group, Supertramp with Rick Davies as the leader of the band from the start...Lots of these tunes will switch on your audio memory banks as they got lots of radio play back in 1979 with this good selling album...My copy has a strong warp on the outside tracks and basically first cuts on both sides are skipping all over the place BUT the remainder of the LP is almost MINT sounding...The CLASSIC cover by Mike Doud is excellent as it shows the skyline of The Big Apple with food items (salt and pepper shakers, egg cartons,coffee mugs, and more)...Yummy...

                      This is a very very good sounding vinyl press. Has withstood the test of time.
