Supertramp is a British progressive rock and pop band that had a series of top-selling albums in the 1970s. The band was formed in the United Kingdom in 1969, and split in 1988. In 1997, Supertramp re-formed with former members plus several new musicians, and remained active until 2003. Music in their early period consisted of ambitious concept albums, but they are best known for their pop songs including Dreamer, Give A Little Bit, Goodbye Stranger, and The Logical Song. The band's name was taken from W.H. Davies' 1908 novel The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp.
