Supertramp – Cannonball

I can’t say I’m up with a lot of Supertramp stuff but was pleasantly surprised to here this quite funky, piano-led number. More dance floor than soft rock. I still forget they are an English band. Written and sung by keyboardist Rick Davies entirely in the chord of G minor (thanks wiki) and their last chart hit. Plenty of synths but the mixes do sound very similar, the Direct-to-disc being the pick, superb production for ’85.
