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

Date Title Source Time
2/29/92 CLEVELAND AGORA STAR GUITAR BENEFIT FM/SOUNDBOARD 56:03
Track List:PRE-SHOW INTERVIEW/ RAFFLE AND INTROS. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION. PLAY THIS GAME. HONEST WORK. CLICHE. THE WHEEL. JESSE (Version 1 w/radio fadeout). JESSE (Version 2 complete w/all comments). ONE WORLD (SOUNDBOARD EXCERPT - NOT PART OF THE FM BROADCAST)
Note:Radio station actually broadcast Jessie in all it's glory- dont know if they got fined or not, but what a cool night- just shortly after this Reebop was born. One of a kind and important show. Crowd went crazy over Todd! If you have this video, it's a real 'keeper' too. Priceless.~ Warren
4/17/92 CHICAGO OAK THEATER SOUNDBOARD 69:59/56:36
Track List:CD ONE: CLICHE'. THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION. LYSISTRADA. IT WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. HONEST WORK. COMPASSION. SONG OF THE VIKING. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS. WHAT'S GOING ON/MERCY MERCY ME. TINY DEMONS. MYSTIFIED. BORN TO SYNTHESIZE. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. BLACK MARIA CD TWO: A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. ONE WORLD. THE WHEEL (END CUT).
Note:Roger Steel does it again. A great transfer from this '92 one off show. Line up: Rundgren, Tagg, Workman, Powell and Prince. A little distant...you can hear a faint chant going on during some of the Wheel...this is more important history captured. This and Star Guitar Benefit were it in '92 (except Ringo and Utopia Redux).
5/1/92 ONE STEP BEYOND SANTA CLARA W/CHEAP TRICK AUDIENCE 4:14/5:03
Date Added:11/25/2016
Track List:DAYTRIPPER. SURRENDER
Note:Decent quality audience recording of Todd's guest appearance on two of Cheap Tricks encore songs. During Utopia's "Redux '92" stand at the One Step Beyond Theatre in LA (Utopia played on the 3rd. Which we have here. See 5/3/92)~ Warren
5/3/92 UTOPIA REDUX: THE LAST U.S. CONCERT: SANTA CLARA CA (THE REDUX '92 - JAPAN WARM UP SHOW) AUDIENCE 70:58/71:51
Date Added:8/14/2001
Track List:CD ONE: FIX YOUR GAZE. ZEN MACHINE. TRAPPED. PRINCESS OF THE UNIVERSE. SWING TO THE RIGHT. HAMMER IN MY HEART. ABANDON CITY. BACK ON THE STREET. ITCH IN MY BRAIN THE IKON. PLAY THIS GAME. MYSTIFIED. HIROSHIMA. CD TWO:. LIBERTINE. ONLY HUMAN. LOVE IN ACTION. CARAVAN. LAST OF THE NEW WAVE RIDERS. ONE WORLD. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. JUST ONE VICTORY.
Note:By far the best sounding tape (audience recording) of the tour. At the end of this show, you'll hear Todd say "...We'll see ya when we get back from Japan..." But that didn't happen. Not a board, and does have some yap at a spot or two but it's the best...a landmark show. ~ Warren
5/15/92 UTOPIA (REDUX '92) DENKI HALL NAGOYA JAPAN AUDIENCE 98:00
Date Added:10/14/2013
Track List:FIX YOUR GAZE.ZEN MACHINE.TRAPPED.PRINCESS OF THE UNIVERSE.SWING TO THE RIGHT.HAMMER IN MY HEART.ABANDON CITY.BACK ON THE STREET.ITCH IN MY BRAIN.THE IKON. PLAY THIS GAME.HIROSHIMA.(PARTIAL) LOVE IN ACTION.CARAVAN. LAST OF THE NEW WAVE RIDERS.ONE WORLD.LOVE IS THE ANSWER.JUST ONE VICTORY.
Note:Just found this cassette in the 'Archive’s here. Really good and very rare audience recording. It's always seems these audience recordings from Japan turn out so well because of the acoustics at their venues are prestine.And the fans are polite. No audience yapping and notice how their applause cresendos before and after each tune. Then pauses silently before the next song. Very noticeable and very cool. Believe me it's not a problem with my tape. A real treat here is the inclusion of 'Itch In My Brain'. Which jumps immediately into 'The Ikon' without hesitation (a medley of sorts). Sorry that 'Love In Action' is only partial. Must have been a tape flip? Anyway, I think ya'll are gonna love this! ESSENTIAL~ Warren

9/4/92 RINGO & THE ALL STARR BAND CAESAR'S PALACE LAS VEGAS NV AUDIENCE (TTD) N/A

The Band: Ringo Starr. Tim Cappello. Burton Cummings. Dave Edmunds. Nils Lofgren. Todd. Timothy B. Schmit. Joe Walsh. Special Guest: Harry Nilsson
Note:Another 1992 Ringo’s All Starr’s audience recording that just surfaced recently. And a pretty good recording. I think the Venue (Caesar’s Palace) acoustics had a lot to do with that. A different set this time. Todd does ‘Love of the Common Man’ as one of his three numbers. And Harry Nilsson guest appears here with a great version of ‘Without You’, which makes this one very special. This could use a little more bass though… which is easy enough to fix with just about any audio ‘ap’ out there.~ Warren
