Chapter 8: Take The Long Way Home, Page 2: Sing Sing Sing - Supertramp
Posted April 28, 2023 at 12:00 pm

Izzy had a CD player growing up. It was given to her by her next door neighbor, Mr. Hotch. He was trying to get rid of some things before he moved to a smaller apartment on another floor. He had a lot of best of albums because he didn't feel like committing to collections of any one band or artists. Which was more because he was overwhelmed by choice than not liking any enough. 

He had a copy of The Autobiography of Supertramp, (also known as A&M Classics Volume 9 in the US) which Izzy picked up because she thought it had an interesting cover. It took a few months to get around to actually listen to it, but when she did she was hooked. She had to get more. 

Her favorite Supertramp albums were Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America. She can still listen to them too. There's a music player that can pull on your memories of a song and replay them. So even though almost nobody out here has ever heard of Supertramp, Izzy doesn't have to get by without them.
