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

CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS. MATED. CD TWO: THE WAITING GAME. LOVE IN ACTION. LOST HORIZON/MARVIN GAYE MEDLEY. FEEL IT. ROCK LOVE. HAWKING. WANT OF A NAIL. HELLO ITS ME. CD THREE: I LOVE MY LIFE.
Note:The mother of all Nearly Human shows - the last and longest and with the final monologues that grew as the tour grew on. Sound is super. Triumphant-our hero has kicked ass across the US and Japan, and finally gets a couple months rest before the 'write on the run' sessions, known as Second Wind, would start up in June when WB was hungry for a follow-up. ESSENTIAL~ Tony
6/90 UNKNOWN VENUE/SAN FRANCISCO AREA 2ND WIND PRE TOUR REHEARSALS COURTESY OF GIL IRELAND-ASHLEY SOUNDBOARD 53:08/28:02

Note:Wonderful run thru of 2nd Wind stuff on the eve of the tour leading to the pfa. At this point, the tunes are more loose, and it’s regretful that some of these ended up so stilted on the end product....fascinating tradeoffs between Roger Powell and Vinnie on Love In Disguise…one of my faves... a discussion about a guy who ate whole hotdogs on Letterman...Todd and Michelle talk about Michelle falling for the fat guy…These are tough tunes to play...this by the way is almost one CD and the purported 7.12 thing is this again with some snippets of another shows rehearsal..If I Have To Be Alone is one of Todd’s great unknown songs.....this shows you how they put it together...super find in top sound...some distortion on vocals but for the most part its nice...~ Tony
6/29/90 VENTURA CA. SOUNDBOARD SOURCE 70:45/22:23
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE SCIENCE. CHANGE MYSELF. CAN'T STOP RUNNING. THE SMELL OF MONEY. IF I HAVE TO BE ALONE. LOVE IN DISGUISE. REAL MAN. UNLOVED CHILDREN. JESSE. PLAY THIS GAME (CUTS). LOVE IN ACTION (WILLIE WILCOX GUESTS). GAYA'S EYES. CD TWO: 2ND WIND. WANT OF A NAIL. PUBLIC SERVANT.
Note:Astounding pre-San Francisco 2nd Wind recording session stop. You dont hear these live, and Willie stops by. Recently discovered board tape. ESSENTIAL.~ Tony
7/1/90 SACRAMENTO CREST THEATER (2ND WIND WARM UP SHOW) GIL IRELAND-ASHLEY (MONITOR MIX) TRANS BY PAUL RUSSO 59:17/45:13
Date Added:3/3/2006

Note:Another wonderous pre -2nd Wind show. Balance is pretty nice, and lots of guests this night: Urbano, Randy, Rex, Liv, Michelle-…a real family affair...talk about the baseball games at that stage....hear Todd working out the end adlibs on Change Myself...If I Have To Be Alone is as amazing as 6/29...remarkable...we get The Wheel instead of Jesse, because Todd’s kids are there...Todd is on guitar fire on Unloved Children…much mistakes in Kindness...Love In Action is not on the tour, so enjoy...Todd does; "…Where do we go...Where do we go now...(GNR)"...adlibs on Gaya’s Eyes ( very different than the CD version)...Prairie kicks 2nd Wind through the roof…great snare rolls...all guests sing on Want of a Nail...great stuff!~ Tony
7/12/90 SAN FRANCISCO PALACE OF FINE ARTS SOUNDBOARD (EDIT: FRANK BUBNICK/PAUL RUSSO) 69:19/69:22
Date Added:12/7/2001
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE SCIENCE. WHOS SORRY NOW (TAKE 1-3). JESSE. KINDNESS. CHANGE MYSELF (TAKE 1-2). CD TWO: THE SMELL OF MONEY. IF I HAVE TO BE ALONE (TAKE 1-3). LOVE IN DISGUISE. GAYAS EYES. WHO'S SORRY NOW (TAKE 4). VOTING RAP. 2ND WIND (TAKES 1-2). PUBLIC SERVANT.
Note:This is the board tape from the last nite of recording of the 2nd Wind album. As you remember, they took it on the road in CA. and arrived a few weeks later recording the album before an audience. Super clean as a pin. This is on par with the Ventura (and the other sdbds) from Nearly Human/2nd Wind tour - not much hiss at all - Paul and Frank did it just right. ESSENTIAL.~ Tony
12/30/90 CHICAGO RIVERIA THEATER GIL IRELAND-ASHLEY (CASSETTE FROM MONITOR MIX) 56:59/51:16
Date Added:12/19/2005
Track List:CD ONE: (NO BEG) COMPASSION. SECRET SOCIETY/SOMETHING TO FALL BACK ON. CAN'T STOP RUNNING (FADES). GAYA'S EYES. LOVE IN ACTION. KINDNESS. LOST HORIZON/WHATS GOING ON/MERCY MERCY ME/I WANT YOU/LOST HORIZON/FEEL IT. CD TWO: ROCK LOVE. HELLO ITS ME. PUBLIC SERVANT.
Note:Holiday fun in Chi Town as was the custom in the 90s...great but loose set...members of 2nd Wind band...but playing stuff from last 2 tours...shows are different in bands for sure...band is oddly a mix of the 2 tours: Haskett…Strickland...Tagg...Urbano...Powell...Shandi...Michelle...Allred..Workman...very different Compassion...Can’t Stop Running races....and also fades...Gayas Eyes is an odd selection and one of Todd’s weaker tunes...Love In Action has Roger Powell solo — after which a joint is obviously passed...The Medley benefits from the looseness and Roger’s parts are sweet indeed...Feel It, however, does not benefit from the lack of tension...far too many notes played across the board...abrupt cut also...weird gate on snare-slapback...Todd gives a disclaimer...Todd announces "it’s Roger Powell!!!"...then the promoter/fan Joe Leonard pushes Urbano off the stand for Hello It’s Me in 6/8...Public Servant smacks of urban decay and alcohol buzz...very odd version, but I really like it all. ~ Tony
