3 stars I admit I got this DVD in a box set with a whole lot of other Prog DVDs from the inside series. It is worth noting that there are a series of "Inside" DVDs available, including Pink Floyd, Van der Graaf Generator, early Genesis, Yes, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and of course "Inside Supertramp". Each DVD is in Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS.

The Inside series is an independent critical review featuring rare archive footage much of which has been previously unavailable on DVD.

Of all the Inside series this one peaked my interest most as I knew least about the band. Supertramp explain a few things about three of their popular albums "Crime of the Century", "In the Quietest Moments" and "Crisis? What Crisis!" Everything else is ignored without explanation and this spoils an otherwise informative rockumentary. As usual we are treated to rare film clips of the classic years and seeing the Tramp kicking on stage in the 70s is a genuine delight.

Musicologists of varying backgrounds critically assess the music to discover the essence of the band. It is a very brief look at the band as are all of these DVDs of the "Inside" series, clocking just over one hour in length. Therefore it is more of a taster for those new to Supertramp or for those who just want to look back at the golden years of this legendary rock band.
