Classics Live Review


by DAVID WILD, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone 


For most of my life, I've loudly and proudly identified myself as a Supertramp fan. All these years later, I listen with awe to the altogether stunning new Classics Live album only to discover that I am, in fact, first and foremost, a major Roger Hodgson fan. His is the voice that spoke to me as a young man, and speaks to me even more powerfully all these years later. An utterly inspired collection of live performances of the best-loved songs that Roger Hodgson has written and sung to date, Classics Live reminds us in the most vivid way who brought the world such beloved rock standards as "Give A Little Bit," "Take The Long Way Home," "The Logical Song" and "Dreamer," and why these shining songs endure as deeply personal yet somehow universal expression of longing, love and our endless search for human connection. Hodgson's performances on Classics Live were recorded in various venues around the world -- from France to Brazil to Germany to Venezuela. Some of the performances here are acoustic, some with a small rock band; others find Hodgson backed by an orchestra too, and yet the entire album holds together as the deeply felt song cycle of a lifetime from an artist who for too long has been too humble to lay claim to his own remarkable musical legacy. Roger Hodgson may have taken the long way home, but with Classics Live he's back and he has never sounded better.


Roger’s 2011 world tour continues to be a tremendous success. He performed over 50 shows in no fewer than 14 countries, offering something for everyone – performing solo, with his backing band, and with symphony orchestra and choir. We want to thank all of you who come to the shows and help make them so special.

Be sure to leave a message for Roger on his

Guest Book or his Facebook page. Although he is not always able to personally respond, he does read his messages and loves hearing from you. Share your personal experiences about Roger’s shows and what his music means to you.

We thank you for your continued support and wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season.

All the best,

Linda and Shakti
