|1972||'THE TODD RUNDGREN RADIO SHOW' - OUT OF PRINT COLLECTORS ITEM/PROMO ONLY.||PROMO VINYL BEARSVILLE PRO 624||60:06|
|Track List:NO TRACKS JUST THE WHOLE PROGRAM IN ONE TRACK.
Note:"One-hour special conceived produced and featuring Bearsville artist Todd Rundgren".Just a pleasure in sounds and music. Basically a travel through Todd's career up to and right after Something Anything. This whole one big cut (no split tracks) is era 1972. Samples from the super rare Randy Reed basement tape 1965, a sampler of Woody's Truck Stop. Full cuts of some Nazz, Runt, Ballad of Todd Rundgren and Something/Anything. With a little of all the artists he produced (at that time) sandwiched in between all the sounds and music. It's just an hour of Todd having fun basically. This thing is super essential for us Todd Collectors!~ Warren
|1972||'SOMETHING/ANYTHING' ~ STACK O' TRACKS (FORMERLY CALLED THE S/A ACETATES)||PURPORTED TO BE AN ACETATE (CLEANED AND EDITED IN PLACES)||40:45|
Track List:I SAW THE LIGHT. IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. WOLFMAN JACK. COLD MORNING LIGHT. IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO. SWEETER MEMORIES. BREATHLESS. THE NIGHT THE CAROUSEL BURNT DOWN. SAVING GRACE. MARLENE. SONG OF THE VIKING. I WENT TO THE MIRROR.
Note:This is different. It sounds odd, and almost feels like it could be one of those machines that mutes the lead vocals on records...but in later places it sounds like an acetate. The tapes are very crystal clear and you can hear the vocals are there, but mixed way low in places. They called it a 'click track' back then. And some different lyrics here & there to prove that it's the Real McCoy folks! It is interesting to hear the instruments alone, and what a masterful job Todd did on the tracks (thats why we called it 'Stack o' Tracks'). But it is record one only. This is truly a treat for those who wish to tackle Todd's songs karaoke style! Surfaced around 1999 from Japan somehow. Sound is superb.~ Warren
|1972||MARK “MOOGY” KLINGMAN||DIGITAL DUB FROM CAPITOL RECORDS VINYL WARREN||45:00|
Track List: I CAN LOVE. LIZ, WHEN YOU WALTZ. KINDNESS. CRYING IN THE SUNSHINE. KILPATRIK’S DEFEAT. JUST A SINNER. MAKING THE ROUNDS AT MIDNIGHT .ON YOUR OWN. TONIGHT I WANT TO LOVE ME A STRANGER. THE SUN AND THE MOON. ME AND RICHARD. THE MAN AT EASE.
Note:You would have thought Moogy came from New Orleans, after you listened to this Album. Todd is all over this, but he (uncharacteristically for the time/era) does not encourage/affect the mood/style music in any way here. He’s just another session player here. Hard to really find and not in print any more. ESSENTIAL~ Warren
|1972||SOMETHING/ANYTHING RADIO ADS (2)||DIGITAL TRANSFER FROM CASSETTE WARREN||5:00|
Track List:SOMETHING/ANYTHING RADIO ADS (2)
Note:The infamous Something/Anything Radio Advertisements. A must for the Todd collectors.~ Warren
|1972||'SOMETHING/ANYTHING' ~ REEL TO REEL||JON RISEN TRANS FROM REEL TO REEL||43:46/45:58|
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. Even more differences in this than AWATS reel version. 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~ Warren
|1972||TODD (#1) AND FLO & EDDIE (#2) VOTER REGISTRATION PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS||DIGITAL TRANSFER FROM CASSETTE WARREN||3:00|
Track List:TODD PSA. FLO & EDDIE PSA
Note:Some other one minute Advertisements that are essential for the Todd collector. It's funny because these Public Service Announcements were just one take/recording. But since Todd was with WB/Bearsville and Flo & Eddie (The Turtles) were with Reprise, they split into two Radio PSAs. The short Flo & Eddie one (with Todd fiddling on piano) is very obscure and only surfaced recently.~ Warren
|1972||JESSE WINCHESTER - THIRD DOWN 110 TO GO||VINYL (JEFF GAUSS)||08:00|
Track List:MIDNIGHT BUS.GLORY TO THE DAY.SILLY HEART.
Note:These are pretty neat. Vinyl drop by my partner in crime Jeff ‘Weavil’ Gauss. 1972 production by Todd. And these are the three tunes in which Todd guest stars on too. AWSOME!~ Warren
|3/72||MOOGY & THE RHYTHM KINGS ‘UTOPIAN DREAMS’||WLIR FM LONG ISLAND||N/A|
Track List:WLIR INTRODUCTION. MIDNIGHT TRAIN. TONITE I WANNA LOVE ME A STRANGER. DUST IN THE WIND. HEAVEN ON EARTH. GIMME THAT BREAD. WELCOME TO MY HOUSE. I CAN LOVE. CRYING IN THE SUNSHINE. KILPATRICK'S DEFEAT. THE MAN AT EASE. I'M A RAM. MAKIN THE ROUNDS AT MIDNITE. RAISED ON AN ISLAND. ACAPELLA.
Note:The following is a not so impartial (and long) review of Utopian Dreams, the new release of an old live-in-the-studio recording by Moogy & the Rhythm Kings, Long Island, March 1972: The set opens with the rollicking locomotive grind of Midnite Train. Next up is the funky Tonite I Wanna Love Me A Stranger that sports a cool Dr. John vibe. The soulful confessional Dust In The Wind follows which is without question one of Moogy’s best-known and beloved compositions. The instrumental Heaven On Earth is a jazzy delight, reminiscent of some of that era’s better prog-bop tracks. Woulda fit in nicely in Mickey Rourke’s Barfly flick. The great Ralph Schuckett takes center stage for the next two tunes, the street-wise shuffle of Gimme That Bread and the bittersweet ballad Welcome To My House that’s sure to be a fan favorite, especially in light of the fact that 38 years after the actual performance most of us Boomers can relate to the beautifully expressed sentiment. Just a wonderful song. The following four are all Moogy standards (I Can Love / Cryin’ In The Sunshine / Kilpatrick’s Defeat / The Man At Ease) delivered with typical soulful flare and tight arrangements. I’m A Ram is an all-out rock-funk jam with plenty of electric piano and organ solos. Makin’ The Rounds At Midnite is a self-professed hunk of funk with a tip of the hat to Jerry Lee. The set concludes with Raised On An Island which starts off with a distinct Siomos drum beat, then John Siegler falls in on bass, then Schuckett on organ, and finally Moogy offers his “humble lick on the piano.” “We’re gonna rock and roll all day, we’re gonna rock and roll my friend,We’re gonna rock and roll all night, then we’ll rock all over again!” It turned out to be more than just a Utopian Dream, it laid the foundation for one of the most respected and creative musical forces of the era – a few years later the mother ship landed and out popped Todd with his spacey guitar and Utopia became a reality. Keep On Rockin’ Moogy! May You Rest In Peace Brother! Utopian Dreams is brought to you by Moogy Klingman/Silver Moon Music and is available for purchase from the Silver Moon web site. NOTE: the performances are grand, the sound quality not exactly pristine. My suggestion is to dial down the bass, bump up the treble, crank the V and enjoy with a Newcastle Brown or three. SO TODDHEADS, GO GET ONE THROUGH SILVER MOON MUSIC OR TRBAZAAR!
|5/2/72||ULTRASONIC STUDIOS HEMPSTEAD/LONG ISLAND NY WLIR-FM||FM (MASTER)||56:39|
Track List:INTRODUCTION.BROKE DOWN & BUSTED.INTROS OF JIM LANG, STU WOODS & TOMMY COSGROVE. GEORGIA SWING.OUTSIDE LOVE.INTRO TO PISS AARON.PISS AARON.INTRO TO A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER- 'WROTE IN LONDON'.A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. I SAW THE LIGHT.INTRO TO SOMETHING ANYTHING & IWHMAD. IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. 'THAT LAST BELCH' & INTRO OF THE HELLO PEOPLE.GOOD TO BE ALIVE. INTRO & DESCRIPTION NEXT SONG.I LOVED HER THAT WAY. INTRODUCTION OF THE HELLO PEOPLE.BLAZE.INTRO OF TOMMY COSGROVE'S LADY ON A TERRACE. LADY ON A TERRACE. INTRO OF SLUT AND PARTICIPATION OF AUDIENCE.SLUT.
Note:This is an oldie but a goodie that the traders circle have had ‘out there’ for decades. In studio performance of incredible audio quality. This entry here represents Istvan's very rare source (Possibly the Master reels. Courtesy Bob Stanislowski RIP) which is the most complete, with ALL the fun rants & banter between tunes included. The other versions I have much of these kind of tidbits omitted. The Hello People back Todd on (and vice versa) this studio recording from Hempstead May 1972 (56 minutes). 41 years ago folks and I'm hearing this like I'm in the studio with them. 'A Dream Goes On Forever' premiers to the worlds ears two years before it's on vinyl anywhere. The fast peddled 'Georgia Swing' has always been one of my favorites. A few fun Hello People songs showcased here. The Philly soulful Todd shines as always on 'It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference'. He has fun with his little 'Piss Aaron' story and the humorous fan favorite SLUT rollicks here! Again, this recording has been around for us for a long long time. A true Todd historic piece. And if you're a collector, you have this. If not, you need to have it.~ Warren
|5/2/72||'TODD RUNDGREN & THE HELLO PEOPLE LIVE IN THE STUDIO 5/2/72'||BOOT VINYL (AMAZING KORNEYPHONE RUN 1)||45:00|
Track List:SIDE A:BROKE DOWN & BUSTED.GEORGIA SWING.IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE.OUTSIDE LOVE.SLUT.SIDE B:TRILOGY FOR PERVERTS: (AKA: PISS ARRON)/BUZZ ARRON (AKA: PISS ARRON)/DUMB LARRY/CHUCK BISCUIT.SO GOOD TO BE ALIVE (AKA: I LOVED HER THAT WAY).THE PLACE (AKA: BLAZE).LADY ON A TERRACE.A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER.
Note:Probably the very first Boot of Todd? 1972-05-02 Ultrasonic Studios Hempstead LI. The Amazing Korneyphone label. Never any label on their records/the vinyl. And as always the case; the Songs are usually mispelled and Track running order is different than the actual event (and why'd they leave off 'I Saw The Light'?). As I do with my old Todd vinyl Boots; I buy 2 (One To play & One to keep Virgin). So I ripped the unplayed one recently, to make a presentable CD. I still use My Brother's (RIP) trusty Technics Turntable. With new needle assembly. And it has a weight on the end of the arm that you can adjust for older vinyl if you need to silence 'run on' & 'run off' noise (and between tracks). You also can control to many different RPMs. I rip it directly through my Desktop using Adobe Audition. And Soundforge as a stand by editor. The result is 'super clean' phonics. As was this one.~ Warren
|5/2/72||‘TODD RUNDGREN/HELLO PEOPLE ULTRASONIC’||CD BOOT (TNT 910112)||56:17|
Track List:BROKE DOWN & BUSTED.GEORGIA SWING.OUTSIDE LOVE. PISS AARON.A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER.I SAW THE LIGHT. IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE.GOOD TO BE ALIVE. I LOVED HER THAT WAY.BLAZE.LADY ON TERRACE.SLUT
Note:I remember the day I got this CD Boot. One of the first CD Boots I ever bought (Late 80s ?). And I thought : Finally, Superb sound from the soundboard tape. The full show with ‘I Saw The Light’! As opposed to the fore-mentioned ‘70s Vinyl Boot .
|5/8/72||RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL NY (w/HELLO PEOPLE)||AUDIENCE||N/A|
Track List:BROKE DOWN AND BUSTED. PISS AARON. IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. I SAW THE LIGHT. BAND INTRO. LADY ON A TERRACE. GEORGIA SWING. SLUT. WOLFMAN JACK (DISTORTED)
Note:This is a clear upgrade from the version in circulation before. However, dont expect superb sound. This is an old one. The sound does warble/distort as it did on the old one around SLUT. And gets really bad on Wolfman Jack (but we made the decision to leave it on the digital transfer, to show that they did do that one)...sounds like a 'one off'...~ Warren
|5/18/72||THE ORPHEUM THEATRE (OR POSSIBLY THE AQUARIUS THEATRE AT THIS TIME) w/HELLO PEOPLE BOSTON MA||AUDIENCE - COPY FROM TAPER'S MASTER (COURTESY FRANK BUBNICK)||30:00|
Track List:(CUTS IN)BROKE DOWN AND BUSTED. PISS AARON. IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. I SAW THE LIGHT.HELLO IT'S ME. BLAZE. LADY ON A TERRACE. GEORGIA SWING.SLUT (ABORTED)
Note:From the crowd in what sounds like stereo. The quality is fair, but the songs are really cool. Evidence tells us that Jeff Beck's Road Crew turned the PA off during SLUT. BTW, this is a copy of the tapers master (courtesy of Frank Bubnick). We also have had this edited recently by Russo. Still rough, but very much a good listen.
Friend Brian McKeen recently tells us this: "I was sitting off stage and saw the whole thing with the sound. He opened for Jeff Beck and I don't remember them shutting down the whole PA but I did see someone, looked like either Jeff or Cozy Powell, crawl on stage behind the amps, and pull the power on Todd's amp just as he was starting to play Slut... The Orpheum Theatre changed names to The Aquarius for a few short years. I believe 1971 & 72. It is still called 'The Orpheum Theatre ' today however."
|5/18/72||WMEX BOSTON RADIO INTERVIEW||WMEX RADIO BROADCAST||11:33|
Note:Great little Boston radio interview with Todd...morning of the show that night at the Orpheum (see entry above). Hmmmmm...Todd makes mention that the Carnigie Hall (6/8/72) show will be filmed? Wouldn't it be nice for us to have that footage!~ Warren
|5/26/72||CURTIS HIXON HALL (w/HELLO PEOPLE) TAMPA FL||AUDIENCE (FROM MASTER TAPE)||30:00|
Track List:OUTSIDE LOVE. BROKE DOWN AND BUSTED. PISS AARON. I SAW THE LIGHT. BLAZE. GEORGIA SWING.SLUT Note: Pretty rough little old recording. But an ESSENTIAL have for you and me. Todd obviously hadn't honed in on his 'vocalist' yet here. But still what is captured here is a great document from Todd's early career.~ Warren
|6/8/72||CARNEGIE HALL NEW YORK (w/HELLO PEOPLE) BROKE DOWN & BUSTED ONLY||SOUNDBOARD||N/A|
Track List:BROKE DOWN & BUSTED
Note:Surfaced obscurely in trading circles around 1995. Then appeared on Somewhere/Anywhere (2000 Victor Entertainment Japan). Recently released as a bonus track on Edsel's Re-Mastered Runt.Check out all the Edsel releases at TRBAZAAR~ Warren
|7/10/72||SKANSEN CLUB STOCKHOM SWEDEN||RADIO STOCKHOLM - TRANSFER WARREN||7:39|
Track List:ANNOUNCER. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. ANNOUNCER & TODD/I SAW THE LIGHT.
Note:Apparently Todd did a stop at the Skansen Club in Stockholm during his leg with the Hello People in 1972. This is a little piece that was broadcast on local Stockholm radio July 10 1972. He performs Dream Goes on Forever and then talks a little with the announcer. And then he performs I Saw the Light with the Skansen Club's house band. Never was really in wide circulation. Guess you could say it's rare. ESSENTIAL. And awsome quality for 1972 (40 years ago)!~ Warren
