I was listening to "Another man's woman", live, on the "It was the best of times" album. The piano solo is one hell of a piano solo and very different and longer than the one on "Crisis what crisis" from 1975.
Does any of you know which version one can get the sheet music to?

They are well known here in the US. It's just been so long since they were on the radar around here, and I am not familiar with this particular song.

I really liked Supertramp though!

I loved Supertramp....They were awesome....great tight musicians....ive got a few of their books..and i also went through a stage where i bought a half speed cassette deck and figured out the complete rhodes intro to "Bloody Well Right" good luck finding a note for note transcription....

Just wanted to say "Supertramp" one last time.

That's funny Dave...I once tried to fashion a Harmonica brace out of a coat hanger, so I could accompany myself on the intro of Supertramp's "Take the Long Way Home."

It didn't work.

I think I have somewhere at home the transcription of another man's woman. It is a horrible transcription, with the singing notes in the right hand and such crimes. Besides, the final solo is simply not there, they let the song finish by fading out.

Well then...it is the solo I want. But thanks anyway.
Maybe the solo I heard was improvisation? Does anybody around here have the album: "It was the best of times"?

Nope, I don't, but I have Crime of the Century on vinyl and tape, Crisis and Even in the Quietest Moments on vinyl, and Breakfast in America on tape.

I would think the live version is an improv, so as someone else said, good luck there.

There's a real difference in the way Hodgson and Davies composed. Hodgson was more the songwriter, with his piano playing being more of the banging it out Dreamer variety, whereas Davies had the more intricate piano playing I think.

Either way, it doesn't matter, because instrumentally, Dougie Thompson and John Anthony Helliwell were the heart and soul of that group to my mind. In the later years, his tenor sax licks saved a few lame albums, and Thompson is arguably the best bottom end in the business.

I was a big fan of Supertramp in the seventies, and though I liked Crisis, I still think Crime was their best work - a superb album.

My favourite song of theirs, though is "Downstream" from Quietest Moments.

Down by the sea
It just felt so nice

Oh man a Supertramp thread I missed. Jamie, I've got to agree Crime of the Century was the best of the bunch. I've got that one and Crisis on vinyl. Also had an opportunity to see them at a small old fashioned movie theater venue, while in HS. Not a bad seat in the house; they were great. I have music from the Crisis album and I have a greatest hit book also but of course it never captures the improvisational stuff.
