Cover Make Over – Breakfast In America

We have had another request, this time from Embeecee from sparksfromacombustiblemind. She put forward the music album Breakfast in American by Supertramp.

Supertramp_-_Breakfast_in_AmericaBreakfast in America is the sixth album by the English rock band Supertramp, released in 1979. It featured four U.S. Billboard hit singles: “The Logical Song” (No. 6), “Goodbye Stranger” (No. 15), “Take the Long Way Home” (No. 10), and “Breakfast in America” (No. 62). In the UK, “The Logical Song” and the title track were both top 10 hits, the only two the group had in their native country. Breakfast in America won two Grammy Awards in 1980. In France, the album is the biggest-selling English-language album of all time, and the third biggest seller overall.

Breakfast in America became Supertramp’s biggest-selling album with more than 6 million copies sold in the US alone and was No. 1 on Billboard Pop Albums Chart for six weeks in the spring and summer of 1979. The album also hit No. 1 in Norway, Austria, Canada and Australia. It was also their biggest album in the UK, reaching No. 3 (for five consecutive weeks) and remaining on the charts for exactly a year.


I decided for my version to go a little off book with some Vintage Advertisement graphics I found in my stash, so I had a little fun with it. Not usually my sort of thing, but hey why not go a little kitsch now and then?
