My_Atlanta_Slidefor_CDRlist


Largest Collection On The Globe of Todd Rundgren Audio Rarities

Greetings Audio Toddheads! Warren H. (Atlanta, GA. USA) here. Tony Rogers and I have transferred our entire audio collections over to my home in 2008. We (Tony & I) thought my circumstances (A 62 year old, single, IT specialist/Audio Editor guy in Atlanta with lots of Todd Rundgren history/archival collecting since 1972) would be ideal for taking over the 'Library' in all its glory. And, so an 'incorporation' of his and my colossal collections takes place! I now curate this ‘museum’. And I plan to share much of this, just as Tony did all these decades. And yes, I’m somewhat of a Todd Rundgren Historian. I have been 'following' Todd extensively (in all forms of media) ever since I saw (and met) him here at an Historic Show at Atlanta’s Fabulous Fox Theatre on November 8 1973. So I know 'enough'. Please note that I say share my enthusiasm. No buying or selling. Nor will a penny exchange hands. Never.
I want to say a big THANK YOU in advance to all of you who are going to help and have helped with this so far. I’ll do my best. Write me anytime. twarrenh@gmail.com
Just scroll down to the items listed below by period and click on any year to browse the collection.
We've also recently been working in collaboration with my friend Frank Bubnick and his well known vast quality collection (you can visit his list by clicking on his name). Some of his editing is unequaled anywhere.
And some late breaking neat news : I believe most of you are familiar with the JEMS group. A bunch of super collectors for many bands’ audience recordings (predominate though are Yes and Springsteen). Well known for their re-mastering prowess and quality. They’ve been in contact with me for a couple of years, and in December of last year offered me all their (originals) Todd Rundgren Collection. They just didn’t have the resources or the time for refining anything by Todd Rundgren. It just wasn’t on their timeline. I received all their cassettes (60) within a few weeks! Most of them are MASTER tapes from the original Taper. They will be sending me all their DATs and Reels at a later date. I will be listing all these recordings here, as I digitally transfer them. With this addition of the JEMS collection I believe these Todd Rundgren Archives are easily the largest collection on the planet.
How do we share you ask? Well, Just for what it's worth, we really don't do the 'snail mail trading' (by postal) much these days. So, if you would like me to share or trade any of this 'Catalog' with you, it would be more convenient/easiest to share in the form of on-line file transfer. Generally, in .flac format, compressed to .zip or .rar for smoother/faster quality exchange [depending upon the size of the audio file(s) we might be exchanging of course]. Hope that all makes sense. I can work with you on 'all that'. Again, write me, and then we'll come to an agreement of sorts. Please keep in mind, that anything that is 'Official', or 'Professionally Marketed', or still available for 'Retail' purchase is not of consideration. Nor is there any monetary means of transaction.
I do not have any rights to, and I am not open for sharing any material that may be listed below that has been commercially or officially released and is still available retail. (It may be listed below for collection listing purpose only). I do not take or give any money for a single item below either. I do not take away any proceeds that are due to Todd Rundgren, family, friends, business or supporting/associated musicians. If it is ROIO (recording of independent origin), then I'm open to share. Support the artist! Go buy his stuff where and whenever available! Speaking of which; an ultimate place to find/buy Todd's releases and imports & rarities is TRBAZAAR. Check it out! If Scott ain't got it, nobody does...just about! And of course many past official CD/DVD releases and proprietary Todd merchandise is readily available for ordering on-line at The Toddstore. So check them out for sure.
I like to give credit where credit is due too. So please forgive me if I do not credit the right persons involved in making these recordings available/possible for all these years.
I’ll start a ‘Credits’ list here below, and maintain it on down the road. Like to make sure all the folks involved are appreciated. For now, let me go ahead and thank some folks that have really been instrumental in these archives (no particular order): Tony Rogers (of course), Mike Armes, Jeff Gauss (Weavil), Frank Bubnick, Paul Russo, Hiroshi Kawauchi, Istvan, Sara Kritzer, Barry Beiseigel, Roger Steel, Mike Adrian, Gil Ireland-Ashley, Dale Michelsohn, Gary Urwin, Don B., Bob Stanislowski (RIP), Micheal B., Jon Risen, Jon Babcock, Mark Wilpolt, Tom Cannon, Joe Franks, Chris 'Razz', Geoff (& Rick) Laurenzo, Ted Moon, Richard Roys, Storm Hunter, Moz (Mike), Sohta Fujito, David Skye, Allen Law, Matt Walsh, Kevin Lewis, Doug Ford, Dave Knife, JEMS, Jared Houser and players to be named later. Special thanks to Roger Linder for providing this page space for us for decades. Let's Rock!
BTW, I call this group of people 'My Cartel'. However, I have given the group a Media name: F451 Media (as in 451 Farenheit). It is not a brand name, for nothing of mine is for sale or has been sold EVER. It is a logo for these dedicated Todd Rundgren Collectors , which most of been doing this since the early 90s (and even earler). Our logo is:
Fahrenheit451

1970 'THE AMERICAN DREAM' (TR PRODUCED/ENGINEERED) VINYL TRANSFER BY SARA KREIGER (Japanese Issue HIROSHI KAWAUCHI) & AMPEX X1001 REEL TO REEL TRANSFER @24BIT/96KHZ BY ISTVAN 71:50
Date Added:8/20/2018
Track List:GOOD NEWS. BIG BROTHER. THE OTHER SIDE. CREDEMPHELS. STORM. CADILLAC. MY BABE. I AINT SEARCHIN'. FUTURE'S FOLLY. I AM YOU. FRANKFORD EL. RASPBERRIES.
Note:Here is the first ever TR production. And the first Ampex release (#a-10101) for Albert Grossman's Bearsville Label (but printed on Ampex). This is a rock album but not too hard. Very straight forward/early production style by Todd. It's the album deal that brought Paul Fiskin to Bearsville and into Todd's life for the Runt deal soon to follow. Sara did a super job on the digital transfer. The official (out of print) LP/release is from Hiroshi's collection in Japan. And we'd also like to thank Istvan for his transfer @24Bit/96khz of super rare AMPEX X1001 Reel to Reels~ Warren
1970 'GREAT SPECKLED BIRD' SELF TITLED (TODD PRODUCED) JAPANESE OUT OF PRINT CD. ALSO X1003 AMPEX REEL TO REEL - TRANSFER BY ISTVAN @24BIT/96KHZ! 43:39
Date Added:8/20/2018
Track List:LOVE WHAT YOURE DOING CHILD. CALGARY. TRUCKER'S CAFE. LONG LONG TIME TO GET OLD. FLIES IN THE BOTTLE. BLOODSHOT BEHOLDER. CRAZY ARMS. THIS DREAM. SMILING WINE. RIO GRANDE. DISAPPEARING WOMEN. WE SAIL. NEW TRUCKER'S CAFE (LIVE)
Note:One of the very first projects Todd ever did with Ian, Sylia (where Todd met Norman Smart...and worked on Ballad of Todd Rundgren demos during breaks)and Amos Garrett. This is where this band was launched and would spend years on Canadian TV, making big bucks for years to come, as the host band of a Variety Show. This is a very different country/folk/rock type project (more typical of Grossman's taste than Todd's). Recorded for Ampex orginally. Thanks to Roger Steel for sharing his CD. We think it's one of the seminal country rock albums of all time, leading the way for all followers to flock to Nashville.
*Special Note: I'd like to thank so much Istvan for his recent brilliant 24 Bit/96Khz transfer of this original super rare 1970 Ampex issue on reel to reel! These decades old phonics are marvelous today!~ Warren

1972 'SOMETHING/ANYTHING?' ~ REEL TO REEL JON RISEN TRANS FROM REEL TO REEL & ISTVAN'S 24BIT/96KHZ TRANSFER FROM ANOTHER COPY OF THE REEL TO REEL (BEARSVILLE BST 2006-F-DP) 43:46/45:58
Date Added:8/21/2018
Track List:WHOLE OF S/A FROM REEL TO REEL
Note:Thanks to Jon Risen (Mojo) and Jeff Gauss (Weavil) for getting this one here. Great to hear it in this fashion, and sounds different on almost every tune (not enough to pronounce this is a new version, but the difference is more than subtle on these reels). Great find and a million thanks to Mojorisen for sharing this transfer from reels at 16Bit/41000Khz. And now Istvan provides us with a brilliant Transfer @ 24Bit/96Khz from another rare copy of BST 2006-F-DP! So, special thanks to Istvan! Coincidentally, another fan sent me scans of packaging artwork around the same time. All this is some super rare stuff for the Archives here!~ Warren

5/7/77 THE PALLADIUM NEW YORK NY (FIRST NIGHT) SOUNDBOARD (VARIOUS KBFH) 37:00
Date Added:8/20/2018
Track List:COMMUNION WITH THE SUN.LAST RIDE.JEALOUSY.EASTERN INTRIGUE.LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN.THE IKON/FREEDOM FIGHTERS.COULDN'T I JUST TELL YOU.
Note:The age old date and venue information that we have is contradicting on this one. Istvan and I have been trying to add some history & timelines up on it. And have come to the likely conclusion that this is possibly a show that was rescheduled (Boston Orpheum May 7th was rescheduled to May 17th) to be a first show at The Palladium in New York on May 7th. The second show being on May 8th (see entry below). For we have copies of ticket stubs to reflect some of this.
The biggest key to the confusion is; This is a KBFH recording, and they have two different presentations of it. One on Radio DJ presentation >'KBFH Promotion Spot for July 31 1977', listing it as 'The Palladium' (with 'Communion With The Sun'/'The Last Ride'/'Jealousy' & 'Couldn't I just Tell You'... Istvan supplies with his transfer from KBFH Reel to Reel!)and another on official CD release 'King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Todd Rundgren Live' (Concert Series # BO4YNEY), listing it as 'Schaffer (mispelled) Music Festival' (with 'The Last Ride'/'Eastern Intrigue'/'Love of the Common Man' & 'Couldn't I Just Tell You'). And then Jon Risen's KBFH version of it has an additional 'The Ikon'/'Freedom Fighters'!
It makes sense to us that this is the first night of two (May 7 & 8 1977) at the Palladium in New York on May 7th 1977. Right or wrong, it is wonderful to have worked with Istvan on this, and we have now 8 performances of excellent soundboard from this show.~ Warren

1978 THE SECRET SESSIONS PET ROCK RECORDS ‎– PET-CD-60042 RELEASED 1999 38:30

Note:Don't really know why I include this in the Archives. I guess because of the Super Stars involved! Story goes that Todd was in Woodstock and just joined in the 'Jam'. He did not have any Production involvement. But some stuff is pretty cool. Especially Randy Van Warmer's'Just When I Need You Most'(sung by Ian). Here's an 'overblown' Shockwavemagazine Review of the re-release Record Store Day Album. Calling it 'Corky Lang's POMPEII"!:
Corky Laing’s Pompeii: The Secret Sessions: Let’s take a trip back to the late 70s, which was a turbulent time for musical tastes. Punk was just beginning to surface and it replaced the increasingly complacent era of glam and classic rock. Therefore, Bands like Mountain and Mott the Hoople were now the old guard and kids no longer cared.
Corky Laing, drummer for the legendary rock band Mountain and founder of supergroup Pompeii says, “In this environment, my record company Elektra/Asylum was preparing to bail on me, but before doing so, they asked if I wanted to form a so-called ‘Supergroup.’ I had no choice, and so began the journey into The Secret Sessions.
The Secret Sessions is their long lost album and features Corky Laing, Ian Hunter, Mick Ronson, Felix Pappalardi, Dickey Betts, Leslie West, Todd Rundgren, John Sebastian and Eric Clapton and is set for release on Record Store Day – April 21, 2018.
The album opens with a classic sound in the shape of “Easy Money.” It shows off infectious dark lines which manoeuvre their way around the verses, while the piano punches through. “The Best Thing” is up next and this number shines through. Furthermore, it makes you smile from cheek to cheek. It’s a track full of love and soaring guitars, which consequently vamp it up.
“I Ain’t No Angel” is straight to the point with funk filled grooves and mesmerising tones. It definitely isn’t no angel. “I Hate Dancin” follows and is funky from the seams inward. It makes you want to move your body without a second thought as the power of the song takes control. “The Outsider” tells a tale which draws you in with every word. Imagine the wind and sun blasting on your face while crushing guitars bring a gritty, raw sound to the mix. “Silent Movie” is soulful and you can feel it deep throughout while the harmonica sets the track perfectly.
“Growin’ Old With Rock & Roll” is full of feeling, drums, rhythm and blues. It really captures the essence of growing old with something you love. “On My Way To Georgia” gets things going with the drumbeat while electronic bongos add an additional vibe to this southern groove.
“Just When I Needed You Most” is beautiful and enchanting. It will have you fixated after just one listen. “Lowdown Freedom” is upbeat and rock & roll guitars keep the flavor sweet. It is foot tapping good from start to finish.
Bonus tracks “Easy Money,” “Silent Movie” and “Growin’ Old With Rock & Roll” have been re-recorded with Corky’s current solo band consisting of Chris Shutters and Mark Mikel, bringing a fresh sound to these classic tracks.
The album closes with new track “Knock Me Over,” and it knocks you over with euphoric guitars and a modern twist.
Corky Laing’s Pompeii: The Secret Sessions is something very special indeed and leaves you with taste for more.

JUST ONE VICTORY.
Note:This one originally was a listenable audience recording. It held so much 'promise' for improvement that I just 'went to it'. We just have so little Utopia 1983 in the archives. Especially the 8 long tune medley beginning disc two is so very rare: Communion With the Sun/The Ikon/The Seven rays/Singring/Initiation/ Road To Utopia/Caravan and Last of the New Wave Riders! An incredible performance and now a REMARKABLE LISTEN. Several of us have tried to enhance this recording so many times over the years. I'm now so proud to add this new edit of this show to our vaults. THIS SHOW IS ESSENSENTIAL and a ‘Trophy’. ~ Warren

Note:Here's an oldie that just now (finally) surfaced, by my good buddy Jon Babcock. An awesome recording of the last night of Toddstock II, or 6.5, or whatever ya wanna call it, at Nottaway plantation in Louisiana. It was a "STATE" performance. Those lucky ones of you who attended will want to keep this charm for their memories. I did some EQing and brought the performance 'up front and in your face'. Those that are particularly the fond of the "Official State Visit' Tour, would love this one. ~ Warren

Note:Todd's Set is Soundboard (Annnnddddd....I know I'm asking a global Forum this; BUT,is it too much to ask for ya'll to keep this one close to the vest? I don't want any flack on how I 'obtained' this one)
RundgrenRadio.com's NYE gig in Orlando Florida. Yep, It's the Soundboard. And as soundboards go; they are always excellent recordings of the Band...but you can barely hear an audience. It's kind of mysterious sounding. But that's OK. This of course, is what we 'coined' as a 'Hits Show'. Which Todd was touring at this portion of the year 2013. It's New Years Eve, and Todd is really feeling the Champagne here, but his performances are spot on.
As you know, Pat Travers is on the bill too (His Set is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N96HlBVSx3c ), and here he 'guests' on Mystified & Broke Down & Busted. All in all, this is a knock out recording. I love the selection of Tunes
Rundgren - Guitar, Vocals
Jesse Gress - Guitar, Background Vocals
Kasim Sulton - Bass, Background Vocals
John Ferenzik - Keyboards
Gregg Bendian - Drums
And I don't think Al would mind if I shared his TRC Review (Al Cannon): " I decided to drive down to Orlando from NC for this show. It wasn't as easy as my usual method (flying), but I had time for stops in SC and GA, so I figured why not. We got to Florida and met up with my good friend Keith Kaufman. We headed for the party on 12/30 and had a blast meeting Kasim Sulton and friends, plus making new friends. On 12/31 came part two. We got to BB Kings and found a great place to stand on the floor. The show began and Pat Travers exploded into some great tunes including "Boom Boom Out Go The Lights" and "Statesboro Blues". I had not seen Pat since 1987 so it was great to see him again. Now we get to Todd. After a short intermission, the show started as did the hits. The show turned out to be a "Best of" event similar to what we had seen on the "Unpredictable Tour" (with a few adjustments). I won't get into analyzing the set list here, but I can say that Todd's voice was strong and clean and the band was perfect. I heard someone say that "Hawking" was the best version he'd ever heard and I can agree (with the possible exception of the night I heard it on the "A Capella Tour" in 1985). Every song was strong. There was an amazing vibe in the air and everyone had a great time including the band. Todd really seemed to enjoying himself. Thanks again to Doug Ford (the promoter) for a wonderful evening. Putting shows together is not easy and (as always) he along with Cruiser Mel did a great job. So we'll see you in September, "Cause There's Always More."~ Warren
*Addition 2018-10-06 Pat Travers Set:Magnificent recording by my Buddy Jon Babcock. I did some equalizing, brought out Travers' Vocals and upped the Bass. This sounds like a Soundboard, so it's a nice accent to the above actual Soundboard of Todd's portion from the RundgrenRadio New Years Eve Extravaganza down in Orlando FL.~ Warren

Note:This is a really awesome one by 'Seedy' (on Traders Den)... and Thank You 'Seedy'! Whomever or wherever you are! We didn't have to do much work on this one. Except there was not much Bass present. So we upped that. We also reduced the number of tracks by adding the 'banter' to its preceding song and mended the 'Soul Medley' together. If you accustomed to the 'Unpredictable' Tour this year, then you'll know it's some of the usual stuff, except here they add 'Open My Eyes' and 'Let's Do This' (one of my all time favorites). The performance is spectacular (as the Guys always are @ Austin City Limits).If you like Todd's unusual pick of 'covers', then you’d love this one. Me? I can’t get enough of this stuff from ‘my era’! ~ Warren

Note:The Taper/David Sell said, “Another amazing show from the genius mind of Todd Rundgren and his all-star band!! Not an ordinary show from Todd to say the least. What a treat to hear him cover some amazing songs. I was in my "sweet spot" at the Granda and the crowd around me was enthusiastic, but respectable. No distractions at all, the mix was great too and this recording is up front and in your face! Crank it up loud!!” And that’s what we do. No editing at all with this grand recording by David Sell (FalconiDave).

Note:This one was a 'bear'...to do some 'magic' with Geoff Laurenzo's recording (w/ TASCAM DR-07). Though it's actually very good, and it held so much promise, but he was in the balcony so there's some distance ambience. So I brought it all out 'up front & in your face'. I think it sounds wonderful! Thank you Geoff for this rare treat!~ Warren
Geoff says, "Hoyt Sherman had the more famous brother of William Tecumseh Sherman. Hoyt was paymaster in the Union army in the civil war. He was a successful businessman in Des Moines, and built a mansion in 1877. The beautiful 1,400 seat theater was built in 1923.
I was in the balcony and off to the right side, not directly facing the speakers. And I didn't want to fiddle with settings after starting, because an usher was close by. Thanks for working on this show."
