Note:‘Kingrue says, “Here we have another Todd Rundgren show that I believe is new to circulation. This date wasn't listed in the etreedb.org database.... until now. Todd's album "Nearly Human" was released in May 1989. Playing nearly the entire album, of which 8 of those songs are played. Along with a medley of Marvin Gaye classics. Thanks goes to Wes for taping this show and sharing it here for the first time.” – Very Nice Audience Recording ESSENTIAL~ Warren

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|
Track List:CD ONE: PRE BANTER. LOVE IN DISGUISE. SMELL OF MONEY. 2ND WIND. GAYAS EYES. GAYA II. CHANGE MYSELF. CD TWO: WHOS SORRY NOW, LOVE SCIENCE (2 TAKES). IF I HAVE TO BE ALONE. PUBLIC SERVANT.
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
|6/13/90||(SOLO) 2 LIFE BENEFIT CONCERT TOWNSEND ST. SAN FRANCISCO CA||AUDIENCE||34:11|
Track List:INTRO BY CYNTHIA WILSON.LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN.INTRO TO JESSE.JESSE.BREAK.CLICHE.THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION.BREAK.ONE WORLD.AUCTION (4 CANS OF BEER).THE WHEEL.
Note:Istvan has encouraged me to go through Tony's Archives of Cassette Tapes to find some of these morsels. This is one he inquired about, so I dubbed the show and I'm so glad I did. The Historian in Istvan, pointed out (and Todd mentions this in the show) that this is the first appearance of 'Jesse' in the civilized world! Todd wrote it two hours before the show. And this is a excellent quality recording, that we didn't have to do anything to (rare)! History here folks! ESSENTIAL~ Warren

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

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

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|
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
