This live release has quite a complicated history: in 1979, Supertramp toured the world in support of their mega-selling album Breakfast in America. They played shows on four consecutive nights in Paris and recorded these performances on tape and on 16mm, and while some of the audio material was later released on their 1980 live album Paris, the video disappeared. In 2006, Supertramp drummer Bob Siebenberg found a heavily deteriorated copy in his barn, and together with director Peter Clifton (who made Led Zeppelin's 1973 concert film The Song Remains the Same), the group restored the material and asked the original sound engineer, Pete Henderson, to create a 5.1 audio mix from the original tapes. The result can be seen and heard on the DVD and Blu-Ray Live in Paris 1979 -- which was released in 2012 without the consent of ex-bandmember Roger Hodgson, who posted an "open letter" on his website where he essentially called the release a rip-off. Apart from the 19-track concert recording (which differs from the 1980 live album because the material was taken from a different night), the DVD/Blu-Ray contains five bonus live recordings where the video was lost. [Live in Paris '79 was re-released with a bonus DVD in 2015.]
