|1987||ROGER POWELL - CONNECTIONS TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD (AUDION RECORDS)||TRANSFER ISTVAN||04:12|
Track List:CONNECTIONS TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD
Note:Thanks to Istvan for this track. Only Retail Appearance of this music was on a Sampler 'Various Artists' Album called 'Sounding Joy' on Audion Records in 1986. It was a 'Spiritual' album of mostly vocal artists though. They called it 'New Age' music back then.One Track (4:12 min)
|1987||ROGER POWELL 'ARCHITECTURE' NOVEMBER 1987||FLEXIDISC FROM KEYBOARD MAGAZINE (SOUNDPAGE #38) FROM ISTVAN||01:28/01:21/01:17|
Track List:TRACK 1. TRACK 2. TRACK 3
Note:Thanks to Isi (Istvan) for this copy. Only music (3 tracks) we know of that exists from a proposed solo album by Roger in 1986 (or 1987) that was to be titled 'Architecture'. He has mentioned at one point, that the albums masters were lost when the intended company Passport Records went out of business (POV & Oblivion were on Passport). Icon Music was the next company intended to pick up and release Roger's effort, but failed to do so not having 'project'.

Note:The only FM of this era kasim. Again I like Kazim's stuff better than Tommy's because Kazim was a good singer and the material (Lights Out) sounds almost like it could have been on POV.~ Tony
|1/24/87||SAN JOSE THE CABARET||AUDIENCE (EDITED/MASTERED PAUL RUSSO)||43:41/41:38|
Track List:CD ONE: PLAY THIS GAME. CLICHE. TOO FAR GONE. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. SONG OF THE VIKING. MATED. LOVE IN ACTION. THE SMELL OF MONEY. BORN TO SYNTHESIZE.

Note:This is another one that Paul and Frank did, and is fairly complete for an 1987 show. Decent sound. This is not the 'drunk show', but a well played and sung performance that is typical of the tour.
|1/28/87||SAN DIEGO BACCHANAL||AUDIENCE||44:46/46:16|

Note:Another nice new one from the 'Archive' transfer program that Sara K. has kindly done for us. A lot of potential here...crowd a bit noisy on applause areas, but not much yap...very fine performance in step with the LA show~ Tony
|2/3/87||TWO WEEK WONDER TOUR - LAST SHOW OF TOUR WOLFGANG'S SAN FRANCISCO CA||EXCELLECT AUDIENCE MASTER TAPE BY JARED (RIP)||90.00|
Track List:PLAY THIS GAME.CLICHÉ.TOO FAR GONE.IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE.SONG OF THE VIKING.MATED.LOVE IN ACTION.THE SMELL OF MONEY.BORN TO SYNTHESIZE.PARALLEL LINES.CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS.LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN.LYSISTRATA.HONEST WORK.COMPASSION.DRIVE.ONE WORLD.LOVE IS THE ANSWER.JUST ONE VICTORY.THE WHEEL (CUTS OUT).
Note:Another absolute beauty MASTER from The JEMS Collection of cassettes that they sent me (and there's many more to 'get to'). All I did, literally, was a digital transfer from the cassette and split the tracks. I would say that it was flawless, which it is, except, it has a load of digital 'spikes', that I just left as is, because it doesn't affect what you hear by any means. And, someone sitting next to Jared is clearly talking through much of the beginning of 'It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference'. And 'Honest Work' is 'digitally' quiet (the audience too). Todd's performance is stellar here. This again, was recorded by Jared (RIP) with JEMS. I was missing 'Can We Still Be Friends' and 'Lysistrata' somehow from my tape and Istvan was kind enough to supply those additions for us! Todd uses a 'background music machine' for much of it, that sounds marvelous.This is ESSENTIAL .And we don't have a lot of 1987 Shows in our vaults. ~ Warren

Note:Larry Clark gives us this great lost solo 2 niter in best ever heard condition. Todd talks about whats going on at the time...new LP soon, extra proud of it, and Utopia hiatus from the stage. Super sound for an old board-it seems the nights may be reversed, if you listen to the banter...either way, this is a tremendous find, and is a good idea of all the tunes played on this tour before the man.~ Tony ESSENTIAL
|8/8/87||NEW GEORGE'S SAN RAFAEL CA||AUDIENCE (COURTESY JON RISEN - FROM TAPER'S MASTER CASSETTES)|
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION. PLAY THIS GAME. TOO FAR GONE. SONG OF THE VIKING. MATED. LOVE IN ACTION. COMPUTER ROCK. DON'T YOU EVER LEARN. THE BALLAD (DENNY & JEAN). HAMMER IN MY HEART. MYSTIFIED. BAD LITTLE ACTRESS.THE SMELL OF MONEY. CD TWO: COMPUTER COUNTRY. COVERS. LOST HORIZON. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS. DRIVE. ONE WORLD. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. THE WHEEL. JUST ONE VICTORY.
Note:This one is fun. Yes, this is known as the infamous 'drunk show'. One of the most popular audience recordings within the Todd rarities trading circulation. I thank Jon Risen for this version; for I believe it’s his digital transfer from the original tapers masters. So it’s ‘soundboardish’ quality. We have the fan film of this in circulation as well, which is timeless & priceless (much of it is on YouTube). But you can see/hear that although Todd was intent on drinking a bunch, it really didn’t wreck the performance (as much as the 1986 Chicago show). Todd does get an incredibly persistent hiccup problem (especially on ‘The Wheel’ where he laughs through the tune). The sound is a strong performance. Yes it was alcohol enhanced, but true entertainment. Much stand up comedy.‘There Goes My Inspiration’ benefits from his looseness. ‘Mystified’ here, by himself, was ultra rare, as is ‘Bad Little Actress’ (which is sloppy, but inspired...too many chord changes...too fast for the alcohol). ‘Mated’ is ragged as well. Yet another great 1987 show that sounds real nice and has a few surprises as well. Loaded with fan favorites. Many say that he was even ‘cute’ during this performance. ESSENTIAL.

Note:Lost in my partner’s (Jeff ‘Weavil’) vaults until now. Jeff says: “(* indicates the computer band plays on that track.). This gem of a solo show from the month-long Rhino Promo Tour came from Smashmark in NYC. NOT the best sounding show from this tour, but definitely one of the more enjoyable I have found. The TR/audience stuff here is great. The BEST Play This Game I have heard from this tour. B/B- for sound because the audience roars pretty loud at times (mostly near the end) and it is trebly and harsh at times. Adjust your EQ and you'll be happy. Back when he played piano very well"

|11/17/87||BOURGEOIS TAGG CLUB OASIS SAN JOSE CA||KBFH (SOUNDBOARD)||1:20:29|
Track List:THE MOVE UP.OUT OF MY MIND .HEART OF DARKNESS .CRY LIKE A BABY.WAITING FOR THE WORM TO TURN .PENCIL AND PAPER .MUTUAL SURRENDER (WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD) .I DON'T MIND AT ALL .COMA .WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE .BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS .THE PERFECT LIFE .DYING TO BE FREE .

Brent Bourgeois - vocals, keyboards, Larry Tagg - vocals, bass, Lyle Workman – guitar, Michael Urbano – drums, Scott Moon – keyboards and Todd of course.
Note:I never really had this whole show like this. Recent find of a King Biscuit Flower Disc Set of it. KBFH really came through in 1987 on this one. The sound is incredible. It’s like the instruments and vocals each have their own channel. This is a timeless concert. Deserves a re-listen by the everybody and anybody - even today. Every tune is so Rundgren-esque. He must have had a part in the writing - when he produced their album ‘YoYo’ (though he’s not in the songs credits). And this tour/show is in support of that album of course. Todd guest appears out of the audience here, and is involved on the last 4 encore songs (He had just done the ‘Condomania’ show with them in April). Of course all of us collectors have heard this performance where the band (and Todd) also does a devastatingly brilliant cover of the 1966 Beatles classic, "Tomorrow Never Knows," which they morph into the Sgt Pepper-based composition by George Harrison, "Within Without You." But every single tune here is addictive. This show/performance is ESSENTIAL. We all know that most the band went off to play for Todd for the 'Nearly Human' and 'Second Wind' eras. Every ‘Toddhead’ WILL find some favorites here!~ Warren
|12/21/87||BOURGEOIS TAGG (SPECIAL GUEST TODD) THE BAMMIES LOS ANGELES CA||AUDIO FROM TV BROADCAST||6:45|
Track List:TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS
Note:Just had to add this one. Though one tune...CLASSIC. Shear Classic. The band is spot on and Todd is brilliant (on a Fender). In the old Beatles song that is very hard to perform verbatum I'm sure.Though a video dub it is HD magic. ESSENTIAL.
