Davies said of "Lover Boy" that "I was inspired by advertisements in men's magazines telling you how to pick up women. You know, you send away for it and it's guaranteed not to fail. If you haven't slept with at least five women in two weeks, you can get your money back. I just heard that as a really slow, really solid sort of beat, just to give the song dynamics underneath it all, because the song itself is really powerful and it needed something really solid underneath it. Most of the song "Even in the Quietest Moments" was written during the sound check for a show at the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
Davies and Hodgson worked out the various parts of the song with Hodgson seated at an Oberheim string synthesiser and Davies at the drum kit. It's a thing where there's hundreds of sounds coming in and going out, a whole collage thing. Siebenberg has described the song as his favourite on the album "because it's so personal and so pure. This album is unique in the Supertramp discography as none of the songs features the band's trademark Wurlitzer electric piano.
The front cover is an unusual photo of an actual snow-covered piano and bench with a scenic mountain peak backdrop—an actual, but gutted, grand piano was brought to the Eldora Mountain Resort a ski area near Caribou Ranch Studios —which was left overnight and photographed after a fresh snow. In Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies , Robert Christgau remarked that, unlike most progressive rock, which is "pretentious background schlock that's all too hard to ignore", the album is "modest background schlock that sounds good when it slips into the ear.
Allmusic gave a mixed retrospective review of the album, calling it "elegant yet mildly absurd, witty but kind of obscure," but adding that it "places a greater emphasis on melody and gentle textures than any previous Supertramp release.
All songs credited to Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson. Listed below are the actual writers, also lead singers of their songs. The reissues were supervised by Bill Levenson with art direction by Vartan and design by Mike Diehl, with production coordination by Beth Stempel. Then we went up to the Caribou Studios in Colorado in November and December, and laid down the basic rhythm tracks. After a little Xmas break, we went into the Record Plant here in L.
We worked on it through the end of February. You might even call it commercial chuckles. Bob: [sic] Roger had been working at Malibu for quite a while on this tune. He had the song on a little tape when I first joined the band so I was quite familiar with the tune.
We tried out various drum things and it seemed right to ride it along on the snare drum…giving it something almost like a train beat. It was something to march right through, to keep it really happy. The album starts out simply and builds in intensity.
This song seemed the best opener. Bob: Rick had been working on that tune for quite a while and finally came up with the long middle section. I just heard that as a really slow, really solid sort of beat, just to give the song dynamics underneath it all, because the song itself is really powerful and it needed something really solid underneath it.
Well I really wrote the song so I could tell interviewers what I wrote the song about. The actual song is old but the lyrics are new. It was done in one take, piano and voice together. I love it when Rick just works with piano. What the song is saying and the way he puts it out really floors me every time I hear it. That track gave me a chance to knock out a pretty meaty beat through the middle section while keeping the rest of it rather gentle.
I stayed out of the way in the rest of it — just adding little things here and there. Doug: This is a song we first came across in Malibu. It gives Bob and I a chance to sit on it. Rick: It has two basic parts. It starts off in a very standard melody thing and then it notches onto a sort of one chord progression or perhaps we should call it digression.
I mean, you should really talk to Roger about this. It sounds highly suspicious to me. Roger came up with the different bits of time I play. That cut took the longest to work the drums out for — it was crucial just where I played what, whether that trip should be on high hat or on the bell. It all had to be right in the right spots. I had to make the moves in the right place. He runs the universe and he runs everything.
He is god really…a manifestation of god. He inhabits the Himalayas with a small band of disciples. It really is fascinating. Average, if there is such a person, who goes off into these weird trips. He plays mental games with himself to get away from the monotony of his work. It really suits my style and I had a chance to open up a little towards the end of it.
John: The music to that song is quite old. It was one of the very first things I heard Supertramp play when I first went down to have a blow with them, and that was over three years ago.
I really liked the number then. It came primarily from a few melodies that Roger had worked out on the string machine thing we use on stage to create string sounds, or sounds thereabouts. It used to be called the String Machine Epic which fits the way the song builds and grows. I tried to get as much of that grand power in there as I could. Roger: Ooooh. Rick: Not strictly…if you count the first two albums years and years ago, which was no advert for our producing.
John: We co-produced the last two albums with Ken Scott. So the time had come to go the whole hog. He did the rhythm tracks with us at Caribou.
Rick: It took me about 23 hours to get home. It was quite a plane journey. I had pneumonia at the time. It was really bad to get into a plane because of my ears — and we must have landed and taken off at least six times.
Did you have a particular concept in mind with that album, or was it merely a collection of songs that suited one another? That trip never really related to what we were doing in the first place. Our concept is to try and make an album as complete as we can. We never sit down and work out some kind of overall picture of a thing.
We want to keep it complete down to the cover, every part of the thing, but we never actually project one kind of concept on one subject.
