Hello Abel, just received your book. Wohoo... A real bible of supervagabondas! Congratulations for this enormous work!

Hi Abel
Your excellent book has arrived safely and I am really enjoying it! It brings back a lot of great memories!
Thank you very much my friend and Cheers from sunny Melbourne Australia!

What an excellent book... As a big Supertramp fan I've loved re-living and joining in the journey from their beginnings through their whole career. Those reading the English version need to remember it was translated from its original Spanish, but even so, it is extremely well written, easy to follow. The book includes loads of information you wouldn't have known, many interviews with the band, crew, and many people who collaborated with, or knew Supertramp well. It is HUGE, and I will definitely read it a few times, as it is written like a well-crafted Album that needs to be listened to over and over to appreciate it as a whole.

I really enjoyed the book, Abel. It is the definitive point of reference. All the best.
#35 Bernard Werk 18-01-2022 08:00
A great read! More than 700 pages about the band that played a big part in my musical education. Excellent research by Abel Fuentes.

Libro denso di informazioni interessanti e complete che riempie un vuoto nelle monografie sugli artisti in quanto non ci sono molte pubblicazioni sul gruppo inglese. L’autore sa di cosa scrive e lo scrive in uno stile scorrevole e piacevole. Gran bel libro. E grandissimo gruppo (almeno fino a Famous Last Words).

What a fantastic book on the history of the prog-rock group Supertramp. Unlike several previous releases that have simply re-stated the usual well-known story, this goes into much greater depth in all aspects, and doesn't effectively 'give up' after the higher-profile1980s period. Essential reading for any Supertramp fan !
#29 Linda Lu 14-01-2022 20:20
Thank you Abel Fuentes!! I’d been waiting for the English version, my family purchased your book for me for Christmas and I find it to be a masterpiece
#28 Gunnar Bjornsson 14-01-2022 09:17
I've been die hard fan of Supertramp since 1979 and I have been buying every record. And reading lot of stuff. I saw Roger Hodgson in concert in Reykjavik in 2006.
To read this book gave me so much new information about the group I love. I knew there has been lot of fights and complication inside the group, but they are so much bigger and more complicated than I expected. And some point between all members!
It took much less time to read than I estimated. It's well written and excited. What happens next – even for die hard fan like me. And I needed to start to read next chapter.
Totally recommend for all Supertramp fans. Now I'm just hoping to all these unpublished materials which was mentioned in the book someday.
The book is really worth reading.
#27 Jane Lowy 13-01-2022 07:33
Reading the book and I’m loving it so far! Glad I’ll be able to share about it.
#26 Jay Jespersen 12-01-2022 07:53
I received the book for Christmas as well. Just about at the Crime Of The Century stage and I have to say - FANTASTIC! Looking forward to more of the quietest moments to be able to read more!!!
#25 Chris Gallagher 11-01-2022 12:46
Abel, received your book in the UK as a Christmas gift and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Excellent work. It’s great to finally get some background and insight into a band who have inspired me as a musician. You’re a hero!!
#24 Peter P Badame 10-01-2022 16:31
just wanted to know what I didn't know, I'm seventy five years old and I don't read books. This last year I have read three books, so something strange is amiss. This book is excellent as I found that I didn't want to put it down. I just want to say if you were ever a Supertramp fan at any level then this a must read. I Pray that Rick and Roger have a mutual moment and call the boys in one more time to put down some magic. I want to thank Abel Fuentes for getting this most important book to the English language.
#23 Andrew John White 10-01-2022 08:08
Brilliant book, which I treated myself to before Christmas. Thank you Abel Fuentes for all your hard work, well worth it and clearly appreciated by many fans of this great band.
#22 Justin Epps 09-01-2022 19:41
It’s a great book and more in depth than previous works
#21 Peter Joseph 09-01-2022 11:35
I am looking forward to the book. Abel, keep up your great supertramp work!
#20 Robert Baxter 09-01-2022 09:24
It is such a detailed and uncommonly deep book on the band. I am up to the point of the making of BIA album. Captivating read.
