Supertramp was not always so palatable. After producing a pair of Progressive Rock albums that failed to find an audience they altered their sound in a more pop oriented way. The move proved fruitful as they made successful albums, radio friendly singles and international success. They kept enough of the Progressive sound to still appeal to those devotees and in the latter half of the 70’s few bands were more successful. Supertramp never did make it through the MTV era, but they did have a solid career. As mentioned with earlier selections, their association with Progressive Rock will work against them.
