Todd Rundgren/UTOPIA (and Related) Audio Rarities On CD-R--- v12.2018

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

Note:I don’t even know why I have this listed here. It’s just that it was Todd’ first show of 2017. The show received bad reviews, but what I’ve done here with the edit of the songs is pretty good….though most of them partial. It’s still ‘in the works’ and I’m waiting for more video to pop up to fill in the two sets just a little bit. BTW, Detroit Betty sounds totally unprepared,~ Warren
3/7/17 ‘UNPREDICTABLE’ CITY WINERY NEW YORK NY (SECOND SHOW) AUDIENCE 79:00
Date Added:3/30/2017
Track List:LOVE OF THE COMMON MAN.RUNNING BEAR. I DON'T WANT TO TIE YOU DOWN.THE WALLS CAME DOWN.BANTER-BLACK AND WHITE.ARE YOU HAVIN' ANY FUN.ENDLESS PRAIRIE.I'M A GUN.SONG OF THE VIKING.(CUTS IN) COMPASSION.THE MEANING OF LIFE.DIRTY OLD EGG SUCKING DOG.CLICHÉ.LYSISTRATA.I SAW THE LIGHT.HASH PIPE.HELLO IT'S ME.LOVE IN ACTION (CUTS OUT).(CUTS IN) LOVE IN ACTION FINISH. ONE WORLD.
Note:Got this audience recording from a source who wants to remain anonymous, because they don't like the way it turned out. I think it's just great, and all I had to do was split tracks and I left as is. Lots of 'spikes' and 'clipping' on a couple of tracks. Looks like its pretty much the whole second show. I think some of Todd's banter is missing. He was drinking martinis throughout both shows, maybe that's why the recorder left some out. But, it all flows pretty much seamlessly together (Except ‘Compassion’ has a very short cut in, and ‘Love In Action’ was split …that I could not fix). Anyway, Todd pulls it off and you really have to like these 'Unpredictable' Shows that he has been doing since 2012 (You either love them or hate them, from many I’ve talked to). I'm pretty sure the first one was actually here at the City Winery on March 12 2012 (Webcast).He really picks some songs straight off the cuff. The Lorne Greene stuff has been a 'staple' in these shows for years. Me? Well I think 'Hash Pipe' leaves a lot to be desired. Todd's falsetto suffers here. But all in all, again, He and this wonderful Band pull it off (Even the vodka aside). It's the first recording we have from this new year.~ Warren
4/9/17 KASIM SULTON DARYL'S HOUSE PAWLING NY AUDIO FROM VIDEO WEBCAST 86:00
Date Added:9/16/2017
Track List:GOD OF LOW.WATCHING THE WORLD GO BY. I JUST WANNA TOUCH YOU.THERE GOES MY INSPIRATION.LIBERTINE.THE UP.TOO MUCH ON HER MIND.SWEET LITTLE ACCIDENT.THE CLOCKS ALL STOPPED.MAYBE I COULD CHANGE.YELLOW CAB.LOVE ALONE.CLICHÉ.GODZILLA.ONE SURE THING.LYSISTRATA.LADY MADONNA.SET ME FREE.
Note:What entertainment Kasim brings. His shows are always ‘warm’ with whoever is lucky to be in the audience. I've seen him every time he comes to Atlanta. Unfortunately we give him small crowds. But his energy and appeal are the same - large or small audience. His story telling in between songs is so amusing. And what a shear musical talent! His performance here is astonishing. The setlist is 50% Todd Rundgren or Utopia related. I have to admit that watching him, and listening is much better than just listening. But this audio will have the listener imagining the visual. He’s that good. ESSENTIAL~ Warren
5/10/17 WHITE KNIGHT/CHIVALROCK TOUR NORTH TONAWANDA NY AUDIENCE (‘BINKO’ & ‘HEYWOOD VIA TTD) 117:00
Date Added:6/13/2017

Note:Heywood (from TTD) says, "A nice change up in the set list this year. Not a greatest hits show at all. Also a nice move is the swing beat on that tired old gem Hello it's Me. Binko buys a shirt at every concert he goes to, then puts them in a drawer never to be worn again. He has brand new shirts going back to the 70s. Apparently this is acceptable to Todd, because he says in Buy My T "you can bootleg the music but you have to buy a shirt". Ok, Todd. I will, and I will."
Nice to finally have this one. Better late than never, huh? [Early in the Chivalrock Tour, and these guys used to come out early with their recordings ('Binko' & 'Heywood')!?] AND they/he always comes out with the best quality of our recordings (Archives) from Tours every year. This one's no different. Probably the best audience recording we have from the 'White Knight/Chivalrock' Tour. The Tour's over and this is probably the last one will get. Thank you ' Binko', whoever and wherever you are! ESSENTIAL~ Warren

Note:Finally an audience recording of This Chival Rock Tour. Tjen0721 (Thom) is aces! Actually the first recording of the year (Well...besides my boring stitched Together 2017-03-17 ‘Unpredictable’ City Winery New York NY http://forum.trconnection.com/viewthread.php?tid=11472). What a great capture Thom! They changed the set list order a bit, and we get 'sir Reality' which not surfaced on any Fan Film that I know of.
What's cool is: We also have e- review from Thom Jennings in 'Backstage access!: "Midway through Saturday’s performance in Kingston, New York, Todd Rundgren mentioned to the crowd he had become a doctor earlier in the day. He was, in fact, given an honorary doctorate from the Berklee School of Music that afternoon and delivered the school’s commencement address. Rundgren cited the decision to make “A Wizard a True Star” after the hugely successful “Something/Anything?” as the pivotal point in his career. “Wizard” has subsequently been cited as an influential work by many contemporary artists, and amongst the Rundgren Nation, it is considered Rundgren’s career defining work. Fast forward to 2017 and we find Todd Rundgren flanked by two young dancing girls in front of two layers of state-of-the art video screens, one sandwiches a powerful band, and Rundgren is out promoting a new album. In short, more than four decades after Todd gave the world “A Wizard a True Star” he still chooses to challenge himself and his fans, new and old alike. The Chivalrock Tour, in honor of his newest release “White Knight,” is the reconciliation of what Todd has been doing since the end of his tenure as a Bearsville recording artist.
The show presents three sides of the musician, starting with the modern EDM infused Todd, followed by guitar hero Todd and finishing with the Philly soul funky Todd who can make you want to dance. It isn’t until the encores that Todd performs a single song from his Bearsville years, and even those three oldies are polished up. Kingston is a stone’s throw away from where Rundgren recorded his Bearsville catalogue. In essence, this was a fascinating homecoming for the artist who has always refused to stand still. In addition to being a visually breathtaking and bombastic, musically it may be the most cohesive presentation of Rundgren’s latter catalogue that combines all the great elements of the last three solo tours, including band members. While some fans have had a hard time accepting the band behind a semi-transparent video wall, the band’s playing has not suffered at all. Prairie Prince and Kasim Sulton have become one of the best powerhouse rhythm sections around, Jesse Gress is playing with incredible conviction and Greg Hawkes brings it all together with his versatility and pop sensibility. What makes a live show great is the artist’s ability to take a studio recording to the next level, and Rundgren’s band has done that incredibly well, especially on the songs from the last three studio albums. For those who might be scared off by the notion that Todd is not playing the older material on this tour, the way the show is structured you manage to get all the elements of those great songs in an updatedform. So while there is no “Bang the Drum” you get the party anthems “Evrybody” and “Party Liquor,” and instead of “Love in Action” you get songs like “This is Not a Drill” or “Strike” and even without “ISaw the Light” there is the delightful new pop gem “Let's Do This,” and while “Love is the Answer” is absent “Past” is an equally moving song.
Perhaps most important is that Todd not only is winning over his audience, he seems to be having a great time. The show is well crafted and the “Global” girls from the tour of the same name bring not only added strength to the backing vocals, they infuse a youthful energy into the show. If you plan on taking a date and talking through a “White Knight” show you should probably stay home, but if you want to relive some great moments from Todd’s career in a new package then you will be fully entertained and satisfied, which is just what the Dr. Rundgren ordered."

Note:Another astonishing audience recording this time by Marc's buddy Barry B.. Marc mailed me the discs and all I did was rip, and name the tracks, and 'budda Bean budda boom'. Clear and crisp and loud. Same set so far for most the 'Chival Rock' Tour. If you've seen one of these shows you can see the 'staggering/extraordinary/mind blowing back drop of a 363,000 light (Kaz tells us) visuals per each tune as you listen to this. And I should mention every time- The always hot/tight Band: Todd, Jesse Gress, Kaz, Prairie Prince and Gred Hawkes. And how 'bout thse 'Smoking Hot' Global Girls. Their angel vocals, their sexy out fits, and choreography. They make my loins ache. Thank you so much Mark! And tell Barry we love him for his continued recordings every Tour. ESSENTIAL~ Warren

Note:Strange set of affairs here. An Atlanta based studio runs live streaming 24/7 called Fish Center http://www.adultswim.com/videos/fishcenter/. It's a hit amoung stoned college students. Basically Digitally green screened scenes of huge fish tanks while two guys discuss allot of silliness. And from time to time they have musical artist who perform infront of the digital 'green screen'. Today (05-29-2017) Todd and band were guests (the night before that evenings show). They perform three tunes. And in between each Todd played with the live fish and the digital fish. An hour long show. I captured the whole show. But here are the three tunes they played. HD Videos and the soundtracks. It's very much fun and you would enjoy. These are ESSENTIAL~ Warren

Note:Mike Mosner. Moss the Boss. Dependablest of all dependables. I'm getting me one of those Jordan's 'I LIKE MIKE!' T-Shirts! Here's one damn good audience recording from 2017-05-30 Center Stage Atlanta. Moz deserves a medal! And wear a cape! You should ya hear this baby! All I did was raise the levels a hair. Now, you're going to hear a wee teeny (very weeny) distortion from Todd's mike in [u]one or two[/u] of these tunes. But it ain't the taper. It's Todd's mike. I ain't no pro-musician, but I wish he'd lose that 1950s looking thing. Everything I've heard from these shows (Vimeo, Private phone vid,YouTube etc...) is the same. Everything sounds great but then the distortion from his mike. (The 'STATE" Webcast was like that too).Global Girls & Band's mikes sound fine.
Well, I'll quit my rant because this one stellar recording and it's will grab you by the ass. Thank you Mike 'MOZ' Mosner (exile)! ESSENTIAL~ WARREN

Note:And ANOTHER excellent Audience recording by my buddy Jonathan Babcock. I added allot of volume though. Jon says, “Pretty straightforward. Raw capture from the 6th row left of center. Turn the knobs until it sounds good to you. Should probably have been in the ‘Mezz’, but really wanted to be ‘in’ the crowd for the only show I’d get out of this leg. The acmV3 proving once again that it’s the best $850 ever spent.” And THANK YOU JON!~ Warren

Note:4000 seat capacity and it must have been full. And I believe our taper was a good distance from the stage . The instrumentation is tremendous, but the vocals are very 'concert hallish'. Still a very good audience recording and a keeper. The crowd seemed unable to figure the song selection. Quite a bit of silence here and there. Strange set saved by the short rendition of ‘The Ikon’~ Warren

Note:All kind of just 'Done In Fun'. This audio is entirely from a Fan's audience Videos. The Videos are spectacular. 'ZenarchersLair' caught the entire show (in twelve parts) from several angles/areas, as what appears to be almost on the stage with the performers? This was one of the last Shows of the Yestival for the Band, so they are on fire, and full of themselves. However, the audio took some tweaking. But it's the whole show, that took a couple of fade ins and fade outs, for a few of the tracks, to make it run seamlessly as possible. I even applied each tweaked audio to each video part, upgraded to DVD NTSC 720 mpg, and came up with a very cool DVD. Thank you 'ZenarchersLair' whoever and wherever you are! Ya'll cam imagine how cool all 12 parts will be tied together in DVD Format. WOW!~ Warren

Note:Carl Palmer approved someone to audience video this one. Excellent it is. And Todd was magnificent on guest vocals. Not only is that Video awesome, but someone posted another angle of it and that one is equally excellent. I've grabbed the audio off both of them for the archives here. ESSENTIAL small piece to have. ~ Warren

Note:I just had to re-do these Videos & audio of only available seven performances from the Show. The first six videos done by Photographer Clayton Call and 'A Dream Goes On Forever'(very partial, but very good) was filmed by Stephen Ross. Everybody has probably seen Clayton's Videos on YouTube but I converted them to HD 720 DVD NTSC and tweaked the audio to excellent sound. Same drill with Stephen's Video. His was posted on FaceBook. As was several others that are only seconds long, so I didn't do those. All just 'Done In Fun.~ Warren

Track List:HELLO IT'S ME.UNDER THE ICE.
Note:I thought this to be pretty rare and ESSENTIAL for keepsakes. Great audience video during Secret Society's Performance at the Once, for Rundgren Radio's 10th Anniversary celebrations up in Boston. Stewkey Antoni made an appearance for two tunes- 'Hello It's Me' and 'Under The Ice'. I captured John Markarian's Videos of both performances. And I think they are worth having, so I upgraded them and I also the audio separately of both songs that I edited a little bit. Pretty cool I think.~ Warren

Note:Nice capture of Ringo's show at the Winstar Casino. Taper was in Section A Row 10, so we get less of a distance large venue acoustics. One of the better Ringo’s Allstars audience recordings.
The All Starr band has been the same for about 6 years which also means the setlist has been the pretty much the same as well with just a few minor changes. But you can tell these guys like playing together and were having a good time.~ Warren.

Note: At first I was real disappointed in this one. Binko (Traders Den) usually comes up with some powerful audience recordings. But this one was a little flat. BUT then, I edited it with my Roxio Realizer and this thing is now probably one of best recordings from the tail end of 2017!
As far as the performance goes, here’s an online Review by Joseph Soto:
”The iconic Todd Rundgren returned to the area Monday evening as he played the Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls. It had been just six months since his prior visit in May. The show was just the 2nd date of his 2nd leg of the White Knights tour. Although the shows were different legs of the same tour there were many differences between them. In other words, anyone who decided to sit through the show again may have enjoyed it even more so this time around. If you missed both shows shame on you. The most noticeable difference was the annoying screen that Rundgren and his “Global Girls” sang in front of while the band played on from behind was gone. Wise choice because the talent behind that curtain deserved to be seen. The same cast was on hand this time as well. The band featuring Cars keyboardist Greg Hawkes, The Tubes drummer, Prairie Prince, guitarist Jesse Gress and bassist Kasim Sulton seemed to play with more authority than they did behind “steel curtain”.The band took to the stage with the exact set they played some six months ago. It was a little surprising since Rundgren had just done a few “unpredictable” shows in which he mixes up the set nightly with Utopia rarities, covers and his solo material. While the majority of the set focused on some of his newer music, Rundgren did some songs that have become standards in his sets such as “Buffalo Grass”, “Love Science” and the show finale “Just One Victory”.
The song of the night came in form of “One World” the Utopia classic. It was the first tune of the encore and was a very powerful performance perhaps served even better as the final song of the night. “Hello It’s Me” quickly followed and kind of brought the tone down a bit following such a riveting beginning to the encore.
The Rapids used their unique set up with tables and chairs on the main floor and chairs on the raised portions of the venue. It made for a comfortable evening although many diehards went to the rail about halfway through to get an up-close experience.
Rundgren has played the area many times over his career. He is never one to go through the motions and has always been a forward-thinking individual. One look at his discography as an artist and producer clearly back up that claim. He is as experimental as well and is never afraid to take chances. What is next for Rundgren? While nothing is certain you know it will be like this show was, worthwhile to see.”

Note:Here's a very NICE audience recording from Marc's (our own ml) friend Barry. They file transferred it to me. I hope Marc doesn't mind, but I 'toyed' with it some. I thought it needed some volume and some 'ummppff...' So I edited it a wee bit. Usual White Knight/ChivalRock setlist. Thank you to Marc and Barry B.! ~ Warren

Marc says, "I recorded this show from second row just off center.I like that there is almost no crowd chatter, but I wish Todd’s mic worked all night"
Here's a another very NICE audience recording from Marc L. (our own ml). He file transferred it to me. I had to 'play' with this one some too though. I thought it needed some volume/bass/bottom. So I edited it a bit. Thank you to Marc again! I like it I like it I LIKE IT!~ Warren

Note:Another wonderful Audience Recording from The 'CHIVALROCK' Tour. It was a very low volume level torrent that we get. So I added to several bits of things (including the Volume). A very clear recording. Minimal crowd noise.....and the same 'ole White Knight Setlist... Nuthin' much new. ~ Warren
Leykis101 (Traders Den) said, "Interesting show, not at all what I was expecting as it was really a theatrical show/rock concert (man that guy has alot of energy at 69! Don’t really do Christmas things (most of my family has passed on and I don’t have one of my own) so, a show 2 days before was perfect (and free so perfect). Venue was half full great sound not many talkers. As always, don’t sell it share it (it’s only a memory unless someone records it). Merry Christmas Mother fuckers!" - Leykis101's words not mine~ Warren

Note: Excellent Second Source Audience Recording (above) by, my West Coast Buddy, Spencer T. This one has a little more ‘volume power' to it (that's the only way I can explain it). Although both sources are very very good. Wonderful to have this 'one off' 'Unpredictable' Set! Apparently, due to logistics and Venue size this was switched from your typical 'White Knight Tour' Set to this one. And what a pleasant change it is. Lots of great oddball song performances here...as is every 'Unpredictable' Show. Spencer grabbed this show almost with perfection, and there was absolutely no editing needed...as opposed to the other source which was very low volume and comes in at the end of the first number, ‘Hello There'. But it's a great problem to have (two sources), no matter how late we got them. The other great source can be found at Jon's TRC Forum Entry: http://forum.trconnection.com/viewthread.php?tid=11694

Note:Excellent audience recordings (2 with different mics) by Jon Babcock. Hard to tell which one’s better. Very good problem to have! I added a little volume and 'ummmpf' to my copy (of the below first ‘mic’ method). don't think jon would mind. and I kept 'beginning (of the end)'and 'love science as the end of my first disc. ~ Warren
