Chris Jolly… FAB cover and FAB album!

Heather Sidery… Awesome!!!!!!

Mike Guy… That’s strange, 2 days late this pops up in my news & I’m just on my keyboard playing If Everyone Was Listening, from the wonderful Crime of the Century. First saw Supertramp on a very wet Saturday in August 1975 at Reading Festival [Yes headlined later that evening], also saw them a few times in Belgium, & a couple of weeks ago there was a Supertramp tribute band at the Eastbourne Bandstand – fab show.

Bookham Ally… That reminds me of the Woodstock couple. Still together after all these years. The couple on the album cover were photographed by Burk Uzzle for the Magnum agency. He took at least two pictures of the couple, one of which shows the woman’s face and the other which appears on the cover; however, he never got the couple’s names. In 1989, Life Magazine identified them as a then 20-year-old couple named Bobbi Kelly and Nick Ercoline, who married two years later and raised a family in Pine Bush, New York, just 40 miles (64 km) from the festival site. That claim has since been disputed by a woman named Jessie Kerr from Vancouver Island, and her friend John.

David Bartlett… Classic cover for a classic album.I learnt to play Bass via Crime of the Century. Love you Supertramp XX PS you don’t look a day over 50. Hubba Hubba
