Even in the Quietest Momentsâ€¦ is the fifth album by progressive rock band Supertramp, released in April 1977.
The album was recorded mainly at Caribou Ranch Studios in Colorado with overdubs, vocals and mixing completed at The Record Plant in Los Angeles and was Supertramp's first album to use engineer Peter Henderson, who would work with the band for their next three albums as well.
Even in the Quietest Moments reached number 16 on the Billboard Pop Albums Charts in 1977 and within a few months of release became Supertramp's first Gold (500,000 copies or more) selling album in the US thanks to "Give a Little Bit" being a US Top 20 single and reaching number 29 on the UK Singles Chart. While "Give a Little Bit" was the big hit, both "Fool's Overture" and the title track also got a fair amount of FM album-rock play.
A remastered CD version of the album with full original artwork, lyrics and credits restored (including the inner sleeve picture of the band absent from the original CD) was released on 11 June 2002 on A&M Records in the US. The cover photo is not doctored - a grand piano was placed on a mountain top at a ski area near Caribou Ranch Studios, covered with snow and photographed. The sheet music on the piano, though titled "Fool's Overture", is actually the Star-Spangled Banner.
In 1978, Even in the Quietest Moments... was ranked 63rd in The World Critic Lists, which recognised the 200 greatest albums of all time as voted for by notable rock critics and DJs.
