The Album of the Month for February is Supertramp’s Crime of the Century

Crime of the Century is the third studio album  by the English rock band Supertramp and was released in October 1974 by A&M Records. Crime of the Century was Supertramp’s commercial breakthrough in many countries, most notably in the UK, Canada and Germany where it peaked in the Top 5 while also making the Top 20 in Australia and France. 

It was an improvement over their previous sales in the US, but still only peaked at No. 38, with the US hit being ‘Bloody Well Right’. ‘School’ was another popular track, particularly at album rock-oriented radio stations. 

The album was Supertramp’s first to feature drummer Bob Siebendberg, saxophone and clarinet player and vocalist John Helliwell, bassist Dougie Thomson, and co-producer Ken Scott. 

The album has received critical acclaim, including its inclusion in Rolling Stone’s “50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time”.

You can hear the full album on Friday 23rd February at Midday.
