Todd Rundgren/UTOPIA (and Related) Audio Rarities On CD-R--- v08.2018

My_Atlanta_Slidefor_CDRlist


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
4/14/01 KASIM SULTAN THE BITTER END NEW YORK AUDIENCE 54:35
Date Added:6/13/2001
Track List:DONT HOLD ME BACK. AFRAID HIMSELF TO BE. BEFORE SHE WAS GONE. SET ME FREE. JUST A LITTLE BIT. SOMETIMES LOVE IS A DANGEROUS THING. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE (GUEST VOCS: PATTI RUSSO). ALL THE RIGHT REASONS. ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
Note:Ah, my man Smash comes thru with this excellent audie from April 01. Kazim delivers a personal performance that is well played and sung. He talks a lot about Utopia and brings his meat mate up for a gtr duet on IWHMAD. Set Me Free is also a gtr tune-real unique and a beautiful finale of Lennon's Across The Universe. This is simply a great new audience recording/snapshot of where the man is now.~ Tony
4/27/01 AGOURA HILLS CA CANYON CLUB AUDIENCE DISC (TRANSFERED BY CAROL D'AMICO) 74:49/32:02
Date Added:7/2/2001
Track List:CD ONE: HAMMER IN MY HEART. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. WEST VIRGINA GALS. CLICHÉ. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. COMPASSION. SONG OF THE VIKING. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. FREE MALE AND 21. HOUSE CARPENTER. BROKE DOWN AND BUSTED. I SAW THE LIGHT. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. TINY DEMONS. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS (CUTS). CD TWO: SLUT, #1 LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR. HAWKING. ONE WORLD. THE WHEEL.
Note:Nice solo show where Todd does a few new things. The WV Gals (which btw, I don’t appreciate at all) and House Carpenter come from his days before Harry Smith/Willner thing. BDAB is by itself as well as slut. Please get this from carol (who has a nice page of Todd stuff as well) and is a great long time Todd fan-it’s nice to have some company here. The show is a little rough as you’d expect but really nice to hear him out there doing his thing again (but it would be nice for OH to add some new piano songs-these are still the same as we’ve been digging since his first 81 tour...)~ Tony
6/16/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD ANAHEIM SUN THEATER AUDIENCE (FROM MICHELLE KOTLARSKY- CAROL D'AMICO) 66:09/72:23/6:14

LET IT BE. YOU CANT DO THAT. TICKET TO RIDE. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY CD THREE: GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT/THE END.
Note:Complete early audience show from the La La Land. This may have been one of the better shows captured but there is a good bit of talk through the show that is distracting, yells, etc. it is decent in quality save for that fact-sound is actually good when no yap happens. This is special cause it includes the Steve Luongo performed "You Can’t Do That" which vanished by the time it hit the east coast days later. ~ Tony
6/18/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD SARATOGA CA AUDIENCE (PROBABLY DAT OR MD) 66:12/75:32

Note:Here is a very good recording from the early days of the AWDAR scene. You can hear them figure out I Wanna Hold...as well as the inclusion of Let It Be which vanished soon thereafter-you can see the different running order as well. Not much yap here-this is good-they were still working out the kinks, but by champion, pa-the list would be set. Thanks to Dennis Donahue for info.
6/19/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD SARATOGA SPRINGS NY AUDIENCE 66:07/69:57

Note:This is a quite fine job for probably 70% of the show, then Ann Wilson says come on down close and its gone- after that muddy, yap but before its real nice-in the earlier - Todd not espcially talking much this show. still real good up until Rain.~ Tony
6/26/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD HOUSTON ARENA THEATER TX AUDIENCE (MINI-DISC) 67:01/51:21
Date Added:8/14/2001
Track List:CD ONE: INTRO. MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. OPEN MY EYES. EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. YOURE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MUCH I FEEL.

BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE EXCEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT. THE END.
Note:This good audie comes from down south..good sound, some talk, but not that bad overall- the sound is strong-the CDs miss early part of set 2, but whats here shows it to be an exciting stop.
6/30/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD CHAMPION PA SEVEN SPRINGS RESORT AUDIENCE (MINI-DISC) 59:43/73:51
Date Added:7/2/2001
Track List:CD ONE: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. (MISSING OPEN MY EYES). EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. YOURE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MUCH I FEEL. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. THE REAL ME. DREAMBOAT ANNIE. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. BARRACUDA. MY GENERATION. CD TWO: BACK IN THE USSR. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS. HERE COMES THE SUN. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE EXCEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT. THE END.
Note:This first in offering from this tour only excludes a great version of OME. However, sound is strong and the performance is excellent. Vocs (esp background) in the show are strong. Todd’s goofball comments add the levity. He and Ann Wilson make a great pair with the banter. Clearly it’s the Todd and aw show-Ann can simply sing her or anyone else's ass off. Todd sings most of the Beatles set but gtr weeps is the shit-great Todd leads. Many more to come-this is a tour not to miss- don’t just nab the CD, go to a show-the Beatles (no matter what anyone says) were clearly the greatest band ever and this tour only accentuates that fact. Catch it while you can-too late tomorrow...Much better (in my opinion) than Ringo's Greatest overplayed hits tours-these are the Beatles (actually Todd calls them the "dumb Beatles")
7/4/01 KENOSHA WI PRIVATE PARTY W/TODD AT CATHY LEE B'S HOME DIRECT FROM THE 'DECK'! 68:21
Date Added:12/21/2002
Track List:INTRO. WEST VIRGINIA GIRLS. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. CLICHE'. HAMMER IN MY HEART. THE HOUSECARPENTER. SONG OF THE VIKING (AB'TED). MYSTIFIED. LOVE IN ACTION. TINY DEMONS. ONE WORLD. THE WHEEL
Note:Special note on this one by my Partner Jeff 'Weavil' Gauss: “Private Party at CLB's in Kenosha on 7/4/1, this will be the FIRST full-sharing of my SBD MASTER cassette...YEP, the show with me backing up Todd on "Mystified" and TR playing my axes running thru my pedals and '66 Fender Bassman amp while singing into my Sure 58 mic and P.A. This is taken directly from my Yamaha MT120 Multi-TRack cassette tape recorder, to Maxell UD-XL II using built-in dbx, atop my P.A. Head-which fed the stereo signal to the Deck. It was played back on this same Deck directly into Cakewalk, using gold ends, in 2008 at The Lizardz' Old Den. NO EQ-ing/normalizing/or ANY digital treatment or manipulation...sTRaight-up! Very intimate affair on July 4 of last year... talks loosely but aims to please-the keyboard is not satisfactory for the purposes then TR turns to the gtr...nice one off. Yes...I've somehow waited this long to bust out this beauty as digital flies. The CD saw the light of day by a close few. Greatest Day Ever!"~ Jeff
The story goes that CLB and Weavil (& others) actually intercepted Todd (while he was in Chicago) to come out to CLB's home in Kenosha. They gathered about a hundred people at $100 a pop and Jeff and some others provided the equipment and the sound. And off it went! This is indeed a 'greatest day' as Jeff put it.~ Warren
7/5/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD CHICAGO IL 'A TASTE OF CHICAGO' AUDIENCE (JOHN HUGHES) 71:00/71:31
Date Added:11/13/2001
Track List:CD ONE: INTRO. MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. OPEN MY EYES. EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. YOURE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MUCH I FEEL. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. THE REAL ME. DREAMBOAT ANNIE. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. BARRACUDA. MY GENERATION. CD TWO: BACK IN THE USSR. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS. HERE COMES THE SUN. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE EXCEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT. THE END.
Note:So The Who guy talks to the Todd guy and we discover another great AWDAR show- as a benefit we get this real strong audie from Chicago that stands well against all AWDAR shows. The performance was strong and it sounds like a fun time in chi-town...This tour is exactly the same except for a few quips in between songs but for those who were there-you need this-another real strong AWDAR show from the Who contingent- Thanks John!~ Tony
7/10/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD UNCASVILLE MOHEGAN SUN CASINO DUB FROM AUDIENCE VIDEO 55:00/64:21

Note:This is a very average audie from Uncasville. Show is decent- some yap. Made the rounds on video that ran in Goldmine- I cant imagine paying for this... if you were there, OK...if not, theres many better.~ Tony
7/17/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD VIENNA VA WOLFTRAP FILENE CENTER AUDIENCE (DAT OR MINI-DISC) MARK LINOVITZ
Date Added:10/22/2001
Track List:CD ONE: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. OPEN MY EYES. EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. YOURE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MUCH I FEEL. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. THE REAL ME. DREAMBOAT ANNIE. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. BARRACUDA. MY GENERATION. CD TWO: BACK IN THE USSR. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS. HERE COMES THE SUN. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE EXCEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT. THE END.
Note:This is a clear show further down the tour road in front of at least 10k folks in the big shed-a far cry from the intimacy of the earlier shows. The place was pretty full. This is an upgrade to the listing of mine earlier in the year. Sound is still from a big hall but this is not as distant as the previous listing. Not much yap at all. Sound is strong and the performance is excellent. Vocs (esp background) in the show are strong. Same comments-Todd steals the Beatles set again and I heard a number of non Toddites conceding the fact in the aisles after the show. This is complete and there will be a few more still coming in. Thanks always to Mark who always does a superb job and this is another in that line of fine recordings.~ Tony
7/19/01 WESTBURY MUSIC FAIR LONG ISLAND NY AUDIENCE 65:00/71:11
Date Added:11/13/2001
Track List:CD ONE: INTRO/DRAGNET THEME. MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. OPEN MY EYES. EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. YOURE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MUCH I FEEL. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. THE REAL ME. DREAMBOAT ANNIE. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. BARRACUDA. MY GENERATION. CD TWO: BACK IN THE USSR. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS. HERE COMES THE SUN. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE EXCEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT. THE END.
Note:The first two versions I got of this were average audies especially compared to the others around but a big Entwhistle/Who fan John Hughes traded notes with me and we discovered this superior version of Westbury-this is. Clearly a cut above the other two versions floating around-this one stands up well against em all and has very little talk and sound is strong. Very good recommended version from John.~ Tony.
7/22/01 SCHENECTADY NY THE AGNES MACDONALD MUSIC HAVEN AUDIENCE (MARK STEINBERG) 66:40/23:44
Date Added:8/23/2001
Track List:CD ONE: HAMMER IN MY HEART. CLICHE'. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. WEST VIRGINIA GIRLS. I SAW THE LIGHT. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. NEVER NEVER LAND. MATED. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. FREE MALE AND 21. HOUSE CARPENTER. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS?. LUCKY GUY. CD TWO: LADY MADONNA. I WANT YOU. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. ONE WORLD. THE WHEEL.
Note:Wow. Back to back dates. The shows are typical of the last so many years with the addition of the 2 Harry Smith tunes (WV guys suck, you say??). This show was a little rushed due to the Abbey show later that night--Jesse plays in Bossa style-Lady Madonna was totally off the cuff (repeated in NYC). The piano gets rougher and rougher as time goes on. Soon we will have gtr shows only or he will be forced to practice to even get thru the same tunes we’ve heard for years-since this is a two-off, we can’t be too picky I guess. He did kick major ass on the Abbey shows-so whatdaya want??? I tell you what-there are few, if any folks who consistently deliver as good of quality as Mark Steinberg. Ggreat sound with no distortion and little to zero yap.~ Tony
7/23/01 NEW YORK CITY BB KINGS AUDIENCE DAT (MARK STEINBERG) 57:29/62:54
Date Added:8/23/2001
Track List:CD ONE: I WANNA BE YOUR MAN (SPOKEN). HAMMER IN MY HEART. LYSISTRADA. CLICHE'. LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. TINY DEMONS. WEST VIRGINIA GIRLS. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. I SAW THE LIGHT. NEVER NEVER LAND. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS?. LADY MADONNA. CD TWO: IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. FREE MALE AND 21. THE HOUSE CARPENTER. LUCKY GUY. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. I WANT YOU. ONE WORLD. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. THE WHEEL. HAWKING.
Note:The second part from Mr. S. Even better sound, better performance. Some different songs but the piano is the same. Jesse is super-Todd sings well....btw, I believe the House Carpenter is one of the best things Todd’s done in years-it just fits his voice and style so well over the wash of sound from (I assume) foamy. Much better than the day before and a longer show to boot. Another Mark' s masterpiece.I think this also now available as a full 'Jewel Case' presentation at TR Bazaar as well.~ Tony
7/26/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD BROOKLYN SUMMER STAGE DAT (RECORDED/ TRANSFERRED - JAMEY SUSSMAN) 73:26/74:42
Date Added:1/13/2002
Track List:CD ONE: DRAGNET INTRO. MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. OPEN MY EYES. EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. YOURE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MUCH I FEEL. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. THE REAL ME. DREAMBOAT ANNIE. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. BARRACUDA. MY GENERATION. CD TWO: BACK IN THE USSR. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS. HERE COMES THE SUN. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE EXCEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT. THE END.
Note:This is simply THE best one out there -delivered late but never too late. This is simply recorded by great equipment from a good friend who does this stuff for a living. It is an outside show-not a board but as good of an audience job as can be done in an outdoor show. Simply superb. In fact-the recording is so good that it shows the troupe's harmonies are wavering and a bit sloppy in places but jeez they are copying the fab four in the studio and many songs which they never played live-performance is on par with the others.. A little better than usual but somewhat ragged and towards the end of the us line. Dont miss this one. ESSENTIAL-PRO JOB
7/27/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD SEWELL NJ AUDIENCE 67:37/77:32
Date Added:10/7/2003
Track List:CD ONE: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. OPEN MY EYES. EYE IN THE SKY. CRAZY ON YOU. MY WIFE. HELLO ITS ME. DONT ANSWER ME. THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THATS HOW MKUCH I FEEL. BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY. THE REAL ME. DREAMBOAT ANNIE. GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. BARRACUDA. MY GENERATION CD TWO: BACK IN THE USSR. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS (2 STARTS). MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODYS GOT SOMETHIG TO HIDE CEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. REVOLUTION. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT/THE END
Note:This believe it or not has been passed around probably as widely as any AWDAR recording out there. what a shame because although the performance is good, the sound is one of the weaker from this tour with a higher level of yap than most and not as good fidelity as say, Brooklyn, Saratoga or most of the others..When will people stop trying to sell this crap? I’m sure if you go to your $25-$30 bootleg store, they’ll have this and people who buy it will probably be marginally satisfied as it’s not that bad-it’s just that there are several better ones-but this is the one that shows up where they sell this stuff. Please don’t give these guys any of your money-if any money is to be exchanged, it should go to the artists-anyone who thinks differently (I think) is simply wrong and greedy and that is the problem that ruins everything for everyone. Sorry to rant, this CD is average. But there are numerous highlights to mention-first of all-the night was recorded professionally and that’s why there are a couple of false starts when Todd and Ann forget the words to While My Guitar... And Maybe I’m Amazed.... also the Jeopardy theme precedes Bang On The Drum......my suggestion is to roll off the bass when you get this (Entwhistle's rumble. RIP) and it opens up nicely...if you want this show-get this version for sure......and don’t buy bootleg Todd stuff, OK??????? Thanks to Mr. W~ Tony
8/12/01 KASIM SULTAN KEN'S BAR & GRILL MADISON WISCONSON JEFF 'WEAVIL' GAUSS (SOUNDBOARD?) 79:47
Date Added:10/23/2002
Track List:BABY DONT HOLD ME BACK. AFRAID HIMSELF TO BE. SET ME FREE. ALONE. JUST A LITTLE BIT. SOMETIMES LOVE IS A DANGEROUS THING. BEFORE SHE WAS GONE. SAY YEAH. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. THE ONE SURE THING. ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. ALL THE RIGHT REASONS. ONE WORLD.
Note:This is stunning recording of the 1st short jaunt of 01 and it pleases big time. the set list differs from the Zigs- Kaz is talking to the crowd about sales of 1st LP, he has a new gtr that strings are slipping on, his voice is a bit worn and he is alone (no Doug)-he doesn’t seem to know the words to one world but who cares...it was a fun little show where Kaz was testing out the waters for his current solo jaunt-recording was flawless and sounds unedited. Super find from Mr. G who has habit of getting some good stuff out there-thanks Jeff...This one is hot.~ Tony

Note:This excellent sound console recording (care of Jeff ‘Weavil’ Gauss) sparkles! I didn’t even know it was ‘out there’!? I found it only by perusing the TRC Forum. Kasim doing his thing in 2001. Much thanks to my Partner Jeff. I think he actually booked this arrangement in Madison. ESSENTIAL!~ Warren
10/19/01 HARRISBURG PA WHITAKER CENTER AUDIENCE MINI-DISC (2 SOURCESS: MARK LINOVITZ & RICHARD SEITER) 74:41/47:33
Date Added:11/13/2001
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. LYSISTRADA. CLICHE'. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. FREE MALE AND 21. I SAW THE LIGHT. INFLUENZA. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS?. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. MATED. HAMMER IN MY HEART. CD TWO: LOVE AND WHITE. BLACK AND WHITE(ABORTED). SLUT. NEVER NEVER LAND. HELLO ITS ME. FIDELITY. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. I WANT YOU. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. HAWKING.
Note:Another good one for this first nite of the tour. A little rough in places and inclusion of Hello It's Me as well as Fidelity (wish we would hear this live on keys solo like 96-97)- enjoyable as Todd is as acerbic and fearless in the face of the scare about 3 Mile Island and the closure of the Harrisburg airport the day of the show. Another show, strong sound from the venue-another good one.~ Tony
10/20/01 SPRINGFIELD VA JAXXS AUDIENCE MINI-DISC (MARK LINOVITZ) 71:46/50:30
Date Added:11/13/2001
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. CLICHE'. LYSISTRADA. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. HAMMER IN MY HEART. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. TOO FAR GONE. FREE MALE AND 21. I SAW THE LIGHT.

LOVE IN ACTION. I WANT YOU. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. HAWKING.
Note:Mark aces the Jaxxsville and delivers probably the most noise free and possibly the best recording of Todd I’ve heard pulled from this challenging venue. The show is a little better than Harrisburg but as you can see the list has changed barely from the night before. Good show- the encores are spirited-another one to get from this short jaunt. Lots of tunes this night. No Wheel, yes Hawking.~ Tony
10/23/01 ANNAPOLIS RAMS HEAD TAVERN MINI-DISC (3 SOURCES: BARRY, SARA KREIGER, RICHARD SEITER) 69:21/42:34
Date Added:12/7/2001
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. LYSISTRADA. CLICHE'. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. TOO FAR GONE. FREE MALE AND 21. HAWAIIAN SONG. I SAW THE LIGHT. INFLUENZA. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS?. NEVER NEVER LAND. LUCKY GUY. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. MATED CD TWO: LADY MADONNA. HAMMER IN MY HEART. TINY DEMONS. LOVE IN ACTION. ONE WORLD. THE WHEEL. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. I WANT YOU. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER.
Note:Wow-three good versions of this show have been had- I give the nod to Barry’s as being the best mostly due to completeness and pretty much no yap at all. The other 2 version are both very good recordings. The show is pretty good- he did have this new mp3 going on. LIA sounds weird solo gtr wise but what the hell we’ve heard No 1 Lowest solo, so... not as bad as people would say-some new key songs would’ve been nice but this is probably the most enjoyable and least jarring show I’ve heard from this tour..(Then again this is the first I’ve had to miss for a long time) recommended-great job by all 3.~ Tony
10/26/01 GLENSIDE PA KESWICK THEATER AUDIENCE (DAT BY ROY GOLDBERG) 67:24/56:43
Date Added:11/5/2001
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. LYSISTRADA. HAMMER IN MY HEART. TINY DEMONS. CLICHE'. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. TOO FAR GONE. FREE MALE AND 21. I SAW THE LIGHT. INFLUENZA. CAN WE STILL BE FRIENDS?. IT WOULDNT HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. CD TWO: FUNNY HAWAIIAN SONG. NEVER NEVER LAND. LUCKY GUY. LADY MADONNA. HELLO ITS ME. FIDELITY. LOVE IN ACTION. SLUT. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. I WANT YOU. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER. HAWKING.
Note:Very clear DAT recording that is virtually bereft of any yap. Good place to record-it almost sounds sheltered. another fine one by Roy G. as you know, this was the first show post-Allentown meltdown-so he mentions it and rebounds nicely-set list the same-safe-same piano tunes-he was pretty on this night -would have been nice to hear the House Carpenter song again. This is a very good DAT recording. More to come soon. At least he pasted some different things together here- even though I’ve been harsh sometimes, I don’t think this is that bad-his piano is actually way above the average lately on this one.
10/27/01 NEW YORK CITY BB KINGS AUDIENCE (DAT) SMASHMARK 61:59/54:40
Date Added:12/7/2001
Track List:CD ONE: LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN. CLICHE'. I DONT WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN. LYSISTRADA. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. SONG OF THE VIKING. COMPASSION. TOO FAR GONE. FREE MALE AND 21.

LOVE IN ACTION. SLUT. ONE WORLD. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. I WNAT YOU. A DREAM GOES ON FOREVER.
Note:Smash comes in with a nice recording from a decent show. There is a bit of talk and rumble of audience throughout as is the custom in NYC but the sound is real nice-the show is not that bad-id heard that this one was weak but the CDs prove otherwise-actually the piano portion is not bad at all and Todd’s voice was rough to start but comes around as the show moves along.~ Tony
11/9/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD TOKYO KOSEINENKIN HALL AUDIENCE (DAT) HIROSHI KAWAUCHI 58:37/43:33
Date Added:12/26/2001

EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE �CEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT/THE END.
Note:Hiroshi clocks in with this super clean audience from the Japan leg. As you can see, the set list is significantly shortened on the solo end (Todd just does HIM) but it does end up highlighting the Beatles much more significantly. Beatles set is same-super show-Todd delivers a solid performance which was above average inspiration-wise. Good one here.~ Tony
11/11/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD OSAKA KOSEINENKIN HALL TOKYO AUDEINCE (HIROSHI KAWAUCHI) 51:38/56:09

GOLDEN SLUMBERS / CARRY THAT WEIGHT / THE END
Note:The top Todd fan in Japan, Hiroshi provided me with this good audience from the Osaka venue-one bad thing is the wailing of some fans for who knows who...maybe Todd?? Also it is a bit more distant than the Tokyo show but still it is a decent audience recording of this show-the most notable is the inclusion of yesterday on this tour.~ Tony
11/13/01 A WALK DOWN ABBEY ROAD FUKUOKA JAPAN SUN PALACE AUDIENCE (HIROSHI KAWAUCHI) 54:59/51:51
Date Added:2/10/2002
Track List:CD ONE: INTRO/DRAGNET. MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. EYE IN THE SKY. BARRACUDA. HELLO IT'S ME. YOU'RE THE BIGGEST PART OF ME. THE REAL ME. BACK IN THE U.S.S.R. LADY MADONNA. IM DOWN. FOOL ON THE HILL. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS. YESTERDAY. HERE COMES THE SUN. CD TWO: LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS. YOUVE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY. MAYBE IM AMAZED. RAIN. BLACKBIRD. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING TO HIDE �CEPT FOR ME AND MY MONKEY. REVOLUTION. DAY TRIPPER. TICKET TO RIDE. I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND. HEY JUDE. BIRTHDAY. GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT/THE END.
Note:This is a another fantastic recording on the last stop of the tour. Sound is clear and the band was inspired as they were shutting this thing down. I know I said Osaka was great, and it is, but if I had one to choose I would probably take this one due to the performance-the sound here is super for an audie-very little to zero yap.Thank you Hiroshi!~ Tony

Note:I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t even have this until I did a recent torrent download from TTD by ‘Lobito’. I didn't even know it was 'out there'! Excellent sounding recording from the Japanese leg of A Walk Down Abbey Road Tour - a tribute to The Beatles. If I didn't know it, I would think this is a soundboard. It’s that good. Thank you ‘Lobito’ whoever and wherever you are.~ Warren
By the way 'Hello It's me' is a very good unique version

Note:Another decent but a little inconsistent tape from the last AWDAR shortened stop...the jam on Birthday is pretty weird and is a lot more out there than you'd expect on a rote gig like this...sound is nice at parts and some caramel in others.~ Tony
