|Genre||Progressive rock, pop rock, art rock|
|Producer||Rick Davies, Tom Lord-Alge, Supertramp|
Originally recorded on two track cassette direct from the sound board for Rick Davies' use, Live '88 features the 4 piece lineup of the group augmented by additional players including Mark Hart (later a permanent member of the group and a future member of Crowded House) playing guitar and singing songs originally sung by Roger Hodgson. Live '88 was initially not intended for a commercial release, but Davies was so pleased with the vibe of the performances he authorized A&M to put it out.
Live '88 was only available in print very briefly. The album features two cover songs, "Hoochie Coochie Man" by Willie Dixon and "Don't You Lie To Me (I Get Evil)". The rest of the album consists of performances from the band's last set list to promote Free as a Bird (1987), along with a handful of numbers from throughout their career.
The band went on hiatus shortly after this album's release. Live '88 has not returned to print, unlike most of the Supertramp discography, and there are no songs from this release represented on the Retrospectacle: The Supertramp Anthology release.
