But Roger appears also as guest star in other official videos: Excalibur, All star band with Ringo Starr, Concert for Diana, and several editions of Night of the Proms. See OTHER WORKS section for more info about it.

The rest is unofficial, like several concerts aired on TV, good quality some of them and easy to find and download in the Internet, or exchanging material with other fans in the Roger's and Supertramp's forums.

El único video oficial hasta el momento es el "Take the long way home" (Live in Montreal 2006), muy buen video, en DVD.
Pero también hay apariciones de Roger en otros DVD oficiales como la gira "All star Band" con Ringo Starr, o la gira Excalibur, el concierto para Diana o diversas ediciones de Night of the Proms.

Official albums (CD & DVD)

 You can find official albums with songs of Roger (or collaborations) apart from the official Roger's discography.
Very interesting works with other artists over the years available in stores or Internet.
All that in execellent quality, and some of them indispensable in your own collection.
I do want to point that the official recordings of Night of the Proms are even better quality than the original Supertramp albums, due to a better technology years later, and the help of a wonderful symphonic orchestra and chorus.
Here you are, the complet list:


Aparte de la discografía de Roger, hay una gran cantidad de discos en el mercado que incluyen colaboraciones de Roger, todas de gran calidad y muy interesantes de escuchar si apreciais su música.
Algunas de ellas son imprescindibles en vuestra colección, como las participaciones en Night of the Proms con orquesta sinfónica y coros, de mayor calidad musical e instumental incluso que los propios albums oficiales de Supertramp, al ser posteriores, con mejor tecnología y medios, y la calidad de una orquesta sinfónica con coral.
Aqui teneis la relación completa:


- CD TALK, 1994 album by YES. Song "WALLS" (this song was composed by Trevor Rabin and Roger Hodgson) Roger is not singing finally on this track but you can feel his style. (Know more) Years later Trevor Rabin released the track where Roger is singing, just read the next line...

- CD 90124, year 2003 by Trevor Rabin, Includes some demos for the album 90125 and also includes the song Walls, but the version with Roger Hodgson singing on it.

roger_hodgson_openthedoor

Recorded in Bretagne (France). Alan Simon (the producer of Excalibur project) was the Producer and Sony France the disc company.
All songs by Roger Hodgson except "For every man" by Alan simon.
The Orchestra of Praga performed some parts.
A extra single CD was released with the song "Danielle", and it was included in some editions within the album (like in Germany)


Producido por Alan Simon y R.Hodgson. Todas las canciones escritas por R.Hodgson, excepto "For every man", de Alan Simon.

La fusión artística de ambos dio origen a esta nueva obra titulada "Open the Door", en la que ambos regresan a sus raíces, dejando el álbum abierto a la utilización de distintos instrumentos de todo el mundo. Así encontramos el famoso piano Wurlitzer, la voz e inconfundibles armonías junto a un rabel, un laúd, un clavicordio, palmas, silbato irlandés, banjo, gaitas, coros búlgaros etc.
Contiene un par de temas del antiguo proyecto Sleeping with the enemy. (Love is a thousand times y Say Goodbye).
The Garden es una canción antigua que podeis ver interpretar a Roger con el Grand-Ma en el video "Profiles in rock" de 1981.
Along came Mary es un tema compuesto para este disco, pero The more I look proviene de la época en que colaboró con Trevor Rabin de Yes a principios de los 90, del que son los sonidos etéreos de guitarra eléctrica y coros hacia el final.
También contiene una nueva versión de "Showdown"con un extracto de un discurso de Ronald Reagan.
Fué grabado durante 1999 en Estados Unidos, Francia e Italia.
Se lanzó un CD single extra con el tema "Danielle", que se decidió no incluir en el album al ser una canción de órgano de viento, y el album ya contiene otros temas con ese instrumento, como por ejemplo "Say Goodbye".
Este single se incuyó en el album en algunas ediciones, como en Alemania por ejemplo

Se lanzaron videoclips de "Hungry" y "Open the door".

LYRICS

Track 1

Along Came Mary

Was alone then along came Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
Was amazed when she stole my thunder
Filled my world with the ways of wonder

Come away come away with me
Far away where the eyes can't see
Come away to another time
Pardon if you lose your mind

Who are you now?
Who makes the rules?
Follow your heart and get back....
Won't you get back....
Oh get back

Was alone then along came Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
Was amazed when she stole my thunder
Filled my world with the ways of wonder

Come away come away with me
Far away where the eyes can't see
Come away to another time
Pardon if you lose your mind
Pardon if you lose your mind
Pardon if you lose your mind-if you lose your mind


Track 2

The more I look...

The more I look, the more I see
The more that life asks of me
The more it hurts, the more I feel
The more it takes time to heal

For easy times they come and they go
Come and they go so quickly
And peace of mind is so hard to know
It's something to keep me striving

The more I learn the less I know
So little time, so far to go
When your heart's getting burned
As you weep, so you learn

For easy times they come and they go
Come and they go so swiftly
And peace of mind is so hard to know
It's something to keep me striving

The more it hurts, the more you feel
The more it takes the time to heal
The more you look, the more you see
The more these things were meant to be

For easy times they come and they go
Come and they go so quickly
And peace of mind is so hard to know
It's something that keeps me smiling

The more I look, the more I see
The more that life gives to me.


Track 3

Showdown

Well there's crying in the kitchen
And there's fighting on the street
And there's cocaine in the schoolyard
Yet my heart don't miss a beat
I can't let go, oh I can't let go

And the preacher's on the telly
And he's handing me the phone
Got an ulcer in his belly
And a torment in his soul
He can't let go, no he can't let go

Everybody wants a contribution
Telling me they've got the best solution
No-one want the carrousel to slwdown
Seems to me we're heading for a showdown

And there's poison in the water
And there's holes up in the sky
And the children keep on asking
Is the planet going to die?
We must let go - we must let go
Got to get fired - it's going to get hot
We've got to take it higher
Give it everything we got
Oh you never know
Way to go

Everybody's talking revolution
Politicians offer no solution
No-one seems to want to face the lowdown
Seems to me we're heading for a showdown


Track 4

Hungry

This morning when I woke up
I fixed myself a drink
I was feeling kind of broke up
My mind was on the blink

I couldn’t see a future
Can’t seem to hold a job
I feel I’m just a loser
Oh when’s it gonna stop

I said Baby, say you’ll always get to hold me
Say we’ll never go hungry
Never run out of money
You say we’ll just have to hold on
Maybe life is just a put on
Won’t you come and just hold me
Say I’ll never get lonely

Some mornings when I wake up
I just don’t know who I am
If I look behind the make-up
I see a troubled man

I wander in the darkness
Just talking to the walls
Seems life has turned against me
Who’ll catch me if I fall

I said Baby, say you’ll always want to hold me
Say we’ll never go hungry
Never run out of money
Give me something to hold on
Tell me life is just a put on
Won’t you come and just hold me
Say I’ll never get lonely


Track 5

The Garden

Walk around the garden
Choking at the weeds
Won’t you come and help me
Try and sow some seeds

All the trees are weeping,
Branches hanging low
Seems as if they know that
They haven’t long to go

All the world’s a funfair
Hide behind your mask
Say that you’re enjoying it
If anybody ask

Don’t believe in sinners,
Don’t believe in sin
Love is all the answers
So why don’t we begin

Taking up the story that Jesus told
It’s older than the years
All the seeds he planted have blossomed
Into concrete walls of fear

Lying in the gutter,
Gazing at the stars
Like to send a letter
To the men on Mars

Asking if they’d help us,
Help us if they cold
Come and weed this garden
Or do you think they should?


Track 6

Death and a zoo

Hey what would you do
Caught between Death-Death and a zoo?
What if your world was stuck in cage-
Would you feel rage boy?
Caught in a crossfire
Stung by the cold wire
Would it feel lonely?

Hey what would youy give
So that your heart in freedom could live?
What if your love was stuck in a cage
Hey don’t you feel rage boy?
Caught in a landslide
Where does the child hide?
Oh does he feel lonely?

So cold on the inside
Where does the Sun hide?
Oh don’t it feel lonely?

Caught in a man’s dream
Silent the heart scream
Don’t it feel lonely?


Track 7

LOVE IS A THOUSAND TIMES

Love, love is a thousand times
Stronger than me, stronger than you
Well if you want to be a soldier
-go marching off to war
You think you’re going to be a hero
But we’ve heard it all before, boy
Love, love is a thousand times
Dearer than me, dearer than you
Well if you want to be a leader,
Then go and lead the way
You’re never going to give us freedom
-no matter what you say, boy
-I said it’d better come soon...

‘Cause love-love is the way
If only we all could hear,
It just seems so clear
I just can’t believe
-watching the world what am I seeing?
But I know there’s a way
-oh there must be a way
Oh there must come day
-come a time when I can be free...

‘Cause I want to hear her voice
Softer than me, softer than you
Whatever will it take me
To bring her smile my way
‘Cause everytime I try to please her,
She loves to go in hiding

-I said she’d better come soon...


TRACK 8

Say Goodbye

Say goodbye to the old way
Say hello to a new day
Well if you want to linger, a trail a finger
It’ll only leave you wondering
Want the future might have been

Say goodbye to the old scene
Say hello to a new dream
You say you want your freedom, but is it freedom
When you leave it all behind you
But your mind just can’t let go?-oh no

When the news is know and you hear those cries
Then waves of sadness will fill your eyes
You’re alone as an island
Alone as a man can be

Say goodbye to the old days
Say hello to a new ways
Well if you want to linger, trail a finger
Just remember what was told you
About the way it’s going to be-you’ll see..
You’re alone as an island
Alone as a man must be

Say goodbye to the old way
Say hello to a new day
Well if you want your freedom
Oh where’s your freedom?
On the road that lies before you
That is all you need to know, let go...


TRACK 9

Open the door

Who’s to say, who’s to know
Where the ship is going to blow
Taking time beneath the trees
State of mind, state of ease
Easy come, easy go
What a life, what a show,
Caught in old familiar ways
Has our love gone astray?...
Gone away?...gone away?...

Open the door... Open the door
Open the door-I want to be whith you
Open the door-I want to play whith you

Do wath you want to, be who you want to be
‘Cause I don’t care what you say or what you doto me

I’m having trouble going a whole day without you
Don’t want to live if it’s a lifetime without you
Come on give me some sing I can see
Come on give me now-show me something

Open the door-I want to be whith you
Open the door-I want to play whith you
Open the door-I want to dream whith you
Open the door-I want to stay whith you now...

Right, right on, easy come, easy come
-easy go-easy come

And I know, yes I know that I’m wanting theworld to be one
But we take as we please and we can’t see the wood for the trees
But I know, yes I know when I open the door I’ll
Be home

I want to go home, I want to go home...
Right, right on, easy come,
Easy come-easy go-easy come
And I know, yes I know
That I’m wanting the world to be one
But we take as we please
And we can’t see
The wood for the trees

But I know, yes I know
When I open the door I’ll be free
I want to go free, I want to go home...

Open the door-I want to be whith you
Open the door-I want to play whith you
Open the door-I want to dream whith you
Open the door-I want to stay whith you now...

Do wath you want to, be who you want to be
Cause I don’t care what you say or what you do to me
I’m having trouble going a whole day without you

Don’t want to live if it’s a lifetime without you
Come on give me some sing I can see
Come on give me now-show me something

Who’s to say, who’s to now...


TRACK 10

For every man

For every man who has a dream
There’s a light that’s rarely seen
Within a world where all is greed, all is lies

For every child who lies awake
And hopes that dawn will never break
To be alone, to be afraid but never cry

Where is the love, where is the fire
We used to share, we used to live
Where is the hope, where is the flame
We used to feel, we used to give
Where is the man who says
He never wants to dream, wants to live

For every man who feels alone
Working fingers to the bone
I have a voice, I still yearn and I still cry

It’s not the singer, it’s the song
Strikes the chord in everyone
And makes us dance, makesus sing,
Makes us fly

Where is the love, where is the fire
We used to share, we used to live
Where is the hope, where is the flame
We used to feel, we used to give
Where is the man who says
He never wants to dream, wants to live

roger_hodgson_rites_of_passage

Recorded live in Santa Barbara (California) summer 1996. And released in 1997.

(So, Ten years after the previous album)

John Helliwell (saxophone player of Supertramp) and Andrew Hodgson (Roger's son) are part of the band.

I woud like to point the wonderful sax sound in the begining of "In Jeopardy" instead of the synthetizer you can hear in the studio album.
And also the wonderful song "Time waits for no one", a very Hypnothic song that could remind "Know who you are"

2. Hai Hai, 1987 http://www.breakfastinspain.com/index.php/roger-hodgson-discography-works-albums/224-2-hai-hai-1987 http://www.breakfastinspain.com/index.php/roger-hodgson-discography-works-albums/224-2-hai-hai-1987

roger_hodgson_hai_hai

Recorded in Unicorn studios and LA (California)
Hai, Hai, means Yes, Yes in japanish.
All songs writen by por R.Hodgson, except "Land Ho", recorded in 1974 with Supertramp.(single)
(that recording was not included in any album, and finally was included in the album "Retrospectacle", Supertramp 2005).
Roger was not too happy with the album, artistically, and he spent 16 months for the release.
A lot of presure from several sides, Roger said he did the album for the people around him (his environment) more than for himself, this was his feeling about it.
In fact, Roger never plays songs from this album when in tour, only the song London when the audience is british or american, due to the humour on the lyrics. And Puppet dance some times too.


Significa en japonés "sí, sí". Álbum experimental producido por R. Hodgson y Jack Joseph Puig.
Todas las canciones compuestas por R.Hodgson, excepto "Land Ho", que había registrado en 1974 con Rick Davies y Supertramp. (publicada en single)
(dicha grabación no se incluyó en ningún album, y finalmente se incluyó en el recopilatorio "Retrospectacle" de Supertramp en 2005).
A Roger no le terminaba de convencer artísticamente el álbum, y tardó 16 meses en sacarlo al mercado.

Tuvo muchas presiones comerciales a las que tuvo que ceder y según sus propias palabras quedó con la sensación de haber hecho un album más para los demás que para el mismo.
De hecho nunca interpreta canciones de este álbum en sus shows, excepto el tema London, cuando toca en ambientes británicos o americanos, para introducir un toque de humor (por la letra). Y también Puppet dance alguna rara vez.
Se lanzaron videoclips de London y You make me love you.

 

Tracklist:

1.- Right place.

2.- My magazine.

3.- London.

4.- You make me love you.

5.- Hai Hai.

6.- Who´s afraid?

7.- Desert love.

8.- Land Ho

9.- House on the corner.

10.- Puppet dance.

Videoclips "London" and "You make me love you"

1. In the Eye of the storm, 1984 http://www.breakfastinspain.com/index.php/roger-hodgson-discography-works-albums/223-1-in-the-eye-of-the-storm-1984 http://www.breakfastinspain.com/index.php/roger-hodgson-discography-works-albums/223-1-in-the-eye-of-the-storm-1984

roger_hodgson-in_the_eye_of_the_storm

Initial name: Sleeping with the enemy

The first solo album by Roger, one year after the split
Recorded in Unicorn studios, Nevada City (California) Released October 6, 1984
Videoclips: "Had a dream" and "In Jeopardy".
 
The initial title for the album released in 1984 was "Sleeping with the enemy". The album was ready (mixed) in May 1983, before the Supertramp tour. The tracklist was:
A-side: Sleeping With The Enemy, Hooked On a problem, I Knew It Well, Land Ho
B-side: Love is a thousand times, Say Goodbye, The Journey, Everyone dies
But after the succesful Supertramp last tour, Roger changed his mind, went to the studio again, and changed the energy of the album, too intimate in the begining,  keeping only couple songs from his original idea. And actually the tracks "Had a dream" and "Hooked on a problem" were rejected from previous album "Breakfast in America". The song "Land ho" was included later in "Hai Hai" and "Love is a thousand times" and "Say Goodbye" were included in "Open the door".

Aparece un año después de abandonar Supertramp, aunque llevaba un par de años trabajando en el. Roger produce y realiza los arreglos en solitario de su primer disco, tocando prácticamente todos los instrumentos, excepto en algunos pocos temas. Este álbum salió a la venta el 6 de octubre de 1984. Fue disco platino en Canadá en tan sólo un mes. Curiosamente a principios de 1983 el disco estaba ya preparado y se iba a llamar "Sleeping with the enemy", con un cierto tono intimista, pero tras la exitosa gira 83 con Supertramp, Roger prefirió darle otro enfoque y cambiar algunas canciones del repertorio inicial dándole más vitalidad y energía. Volvió al estudio a grabar algunos temas más y el lanzamiento se retrasó.

El contenido inicial era el siguiente:
CARA A: Sleeping With The Enemy, Hooked On a problem, I Knew It Well, Land Ho
CARA B: Love is a thousand times, Say Goodbye, The Journey, Everyone dies

De este proyecto inicial solo se respetaron dos canciones y el resto fueron incluyendose (algunas) en discos posteriores.
Los temas "Had a dream" y "Hooked on a problem" eran inicialmente para el disco Breakfast in America de Supertramp, pero fueron descartadas en su momento y Roger decidió incluirlas aquí.
Se lanzaron videoclips de "Had a dream" e "In Jeopardy".


Tracklist:

1.- Had a dream (sleeping with the enemy)

2.- In Jeopardy.

3.- Lovers in the Wind.

4.- Hooked on a problem.

5.- Give me love, give me life.

6.- I´m not afraid.

7.- Only because of you.

Videoclips "Had a dream" and "In Jeopardy"
