Roger Hodgson: In The Eye Of The Storm (1984)
After Supertamp's Famous Last Words, which turned out to be neither famous nor last, Hodgson recorded his first solo record. The casual listener might be convinced that this is a Supertramp record. It has a familiar voice and sounds like later Supertramp. It's just lacking the counterpoint provided by Rick Davies. Still, for a Supertramp fan (and that was me, for a while), this record is a must have. It's certainly a progressive record, and it's as good as anything Supertramp did in its later career.
