Doors, Deep Purple, Asia, Yes, Dream Theater Members Tribute Supertramp
Members of Asia, Yes, King Crimson, The Doors, Deep Purple, XTC, Toto, Mr. Mister, Dream Theater, Nektar, Porcupine Tree, Gentle Giant, Renaissance, and Rainbow will appear on Cleopatra Records Songs Of The Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp which will hit stores on August 14th.
Supertramp hit songs are reenvisioned on Songs Of The Century, including "The Logical Song," "Take The Long Way Home," and "Goodbye Stranger," plus takes on gems like "Rudy" and "It's Raining Again."
Producer Billy Sherwood enthuses, "There are some cool, unique moments like Annie Haslam singing "Dreamer" and one of the other highlights for me is Rick Wakeman's piano playing on "Crime of the Century." And Joe Lynn Turner singing "Bloody Well Right" is just killer."" Richard Page offers a delightful version of "Give A Little Bit" that exudes all the sweet charm of the original. The bonus track is a new piece from Chris Squire and Tony Kaye of Yes.
The studio guest list also included John Wetton, Tony Levin, Robby Krieger, Colin Moulding, Steve Morse, Steve Porcaro, Roye Albrighton, Peter Banks, David Sancious, Gary Green, John Wesley, Geoff Downes, Jordan Rudess, Rod Argent, Mickey Thomas and more.
