Todd Rundgren/UTOPIA (and Related) Audio on CD-R ______ v11.17

My_Atlanta_Slidefor_CDRlist


Greetings Audio Toddheads! Warren H.(Atlanta, GA. USA) here. Tony Rogers and I have transferred his entire audio collection over to my home in 2009. Me - having been a long time friend, and somewhat of his ‘collaborator’ collector/enthusiast over all these decades; We (Tony & I) thought my circumstances (A 62 year old, single, IT specialist 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 get to curate this ‘museum’. And I plan to share openly, just as Tony did all these decades. 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 the Historic Show at Atlanta’s Fabulous Fox Theatre on November 8 1973. So I know 'enough' :).
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.
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. Please feel free to correct me on who's responsible for what. Unfortunately from around 2008 to 2010; Tony’s library was not covered as extensively as we'd like. So, my good friend ‘partner in crime’ Jeff Gauss (Weavil) has offered to help us out with much of that. Visit: Weavil's Toddlist. 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’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), 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 Added:8/22/2012
Track List:40 MINUTES OF TODD GUEST STARRING ON HOWARD STERN'S SYNDICATED RADIO/CABLE TV SHOW
Note:I know. I know. We've heard all the interviews. What else can be said. A LOT during this comedic interlude between Howard and Todd. It's about the time of the first introduction of Todd's TR-i title/name. A must have for all collectors. Thanks Roger Steel for his copy!
10/26/93 TOKYO ON AIR AUDIENCE SOURCE (TRANSFER TO CD BY HIROSHI KAWAUCHI) 55:18/42:59
Track List:CD ONE: DAY JOB. LOVE THING. PULSE. WORLDWIDE EPIPHANY. NO WORLD ORDER. FEEL TOO GOOD. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. TIME STOOD STILL. PROPERTY. THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION. LYSISTRADA. CD TWO: INTERNATIONAL FEEL. WORD MADE FLESH. FASCIST CHRIST. SECRET SOCIETY. PROACTIVITY. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. THE WHEEL.
Note:One of the first ever NWO shows recorded well and transferred Hiroshi kawauchi. A very good audience document of this leg of the tour (before it ever got to the US). Lot of acoustic tunes mixed in as you hear his concerns about working the bugs out of the Toddpod.
11/22/93 MINNEAPOLIS FIRST AVENUE AUDIENCE - JEFF GAUSS (RE -EQD/TRANSFERRED BY TONY) 70:45/73:31
Track List:CD ONE: INTRO. WORLDWIDE EPIPHANY. FEVER BROKE FAST. DAY JOB. FEEL TOO GOOD. CHANT. SECRET SOCIETY. WORLDWIDE EPIPHANY VAMP. TIME STOOD STILL. PROACTIVITY. PROPERTY. FASCIST CHRIST. PULSE. THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN CD TWO: BLACK AND WHITE. WORLDWIDE EPIPHANY VAMP. DAY JOB (AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION). NO WORLD ORDER. CHANT (REPRISE). WORD MADE FLESH. FEVER BROKE SLOW VAMP. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. FEVER BROKE SLOW. WHAT'S GOIN' ON/MERCY MERCY ME. ONE WORLD.
Note:The initial NWO stop. A great recording supplied by Jeff Gauss (Weavil). Probably the best of the four audience series by Jeff. But they are all very VERY good! As close to a soundboard type recordings as you could possibly get.
Todd seems still a little preoccupied with how the pod is functioning here, but the sound is excellent. Lotsa guitar solos and he takes some chances (different solos than ususal). He points out the 49ers score too...chuckle chuck. These series of Jeff's recordings are some of the only few recordings that we have that are definitive/full NWO Tour shows. The 1994 stuff that we have, are really not the complete sets that he performed. Unfortunately, some performed tunes are omitted from those 'Pro-recordings'.~ Warren
11/23/93 CHICAGO PARK WEST AUDIENCE (JEFF 'WEAVIL' GAUSS) 74:10/72:48

SECRET SOCIETY. IF I DIDN'T TRY. LYSISTRADA. TINY DEMONS. BLACK AND WHITE CD TWO: WORLWIDE EPIPHANY. DAY JOB. PROPERTY. FEVER BROKE FAST. CHANT. FEVER BROKE SLOW. ONE WORLD. THE WHEEL.
Note:This was a three night stand by Todd at The Park West (23rd, 24th & 28th). And I'm thinking that this is actually the Show performed on the 24th (I know it reads the 23rd above)?. More to come on this tour. This has some phasing probs in spots but still very clear (Jeff Gauss 'Weavil' captured two shows at The Park West).~ Warren

Note:Another NWO smoker from the Jeff 'Weavil' Gauss series. TR-i has a guitar eruption during International Feel. He complains about people trying to steal his shit. Another ripper in Fascist Christ. Sounds great. Some very small probs, but all in all a great show.
11/28/93 CHICAGO PARK WEST AUDIENCE (JEFF 'WEAVIL' GAUSS) 74:03/67:34
Track List:CD ONE: INTRO/PULSE. PROACTIVITY. TIME STOOD STILL. WORLDWIDE EPIPHANY. CHANT. SECRET SOCIETY. IF I DIDNT TRY. FEEL TOO GOOD. THER GOES MY INSPIRATION. TONY DEMONS. BLACK AND WHITE.

Note:Last '93 NWO installment from the Jeff 'Weavil' Gauss series. This is cool. Has some flange effect that obscures the highs on occassion, but still a good show and sounds great! THANKS JEFF!~ Warren
