Supertramp - Breakast in America (1979)

Breakfast in America is the sixth album by the band Supertramp, released in 1979. It was recorded the previous year at the Village Recorder in Los Angeles. Tensions between band members Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies started to come to the fore on this album. When Hodgson was interviewed for an episode of In the Studio with Redbeard devoted to the making of the album, he remarked "Rick (Davies) didn't like the song "Breakfast in America" and didn't want it on the album. He also didn't want the album to be titled Breakfast in America either and I guess I won out on both accounts". Davies originally opted for either Working Title or Hello Stranger as Breakfast in America's album title." - Wikipedia
