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

Note:This is probably the best thing I’ve ever done. It is a mix and match 3 CD set of what we call ROIO (Recordings of Independent Origin). All are random selections of Fan audience audio recordings, or amateur audio recordings off Radio Broadcasts and/or Television/Radio Simulcasts. All ‘Done in Fun’ for serious Todd Rundgren Collectors and Enthusiasts. There’s some super rare and priceless stuff here. Never to be sold, nor should profit be made.
Our selections are culled from live performances by Todd Rundgren's Utopia (1973 - 1977), or Utopia (1978 - 1985) and intermixed with some Solo w/Friends performance. Represented here are years 1973 through 1989 of Todd’s career (The ‘70s’ and ‘80s’). And technically, none of these have been officially released (yet) or for sanctioned/approved sale on the retail market. I’m kind of proud of this 3 CD set that I’ve put together. Fahrenheit 451 is a non- profit ‘no names’ group of Collectors where a penny is not given, nor taken, for the love of what we do. And don’t we love to share this stuff?!
I do not have any rights to, and again, I am not open for sharing any material that we may possess that has been commercially or officially released and is still available retail. I do not take or give any money for a single item 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 their artistry where and whenever available! Speaking of which; an ultimate legit place to find/buy Todd's releases and imports & rarities is http://www.trbazaar.com/. Check it out! If Scott ain't got it it, nobody does...just about! And of course, many past & present official CD/DVD releases and proprietary Todd merchandise is readily available for ordering on-line at The Toddstore. So check them out for sure @https://www.facebook.com/thetoddstore . And just for what it’s worth, the WhooHooLive Folks are currently ‘in transition’. We’ll keep you posted on them.
This not your typical compilation of outtakes, cut outs, rare ‘B’ Sides or alternative takes. Nor is it a greatest hits collection. It’s all ‘live’ audio obscurities. All are ‘grade A’ excellent recordings. ESSENTIAL~ Warren

* Seven Tracks that I have marked with and asterisk are my recordings from webcasts pre-Todd & Company edit & mix and released OFFICIALLY

Note:Sorry for this long Preamble. But this is some wonderful music here. All excellent quality Audio:
My first one; 'RUNDGRENS of INDEPENDENT ORIGIN 1973-1989' was probably the finest work I've ever done (http://forum.trconnection.com/viewthread.php?tid=11054#pid193377). So it would be hard to beat (probably can't). But here's another collection that I put together of live Todd ROIO… Recordings of Independent Origin…An old term, us audio collectors use, for not an Official product, but one that was recorded amature from Radio, Web Steam or recorded from the audience, or more importantly, from 'USB Sticks' the soundboard that you could buy after the show.
Having said that, there are some tracks (7) here that are now officially released by Todd. However, mine are captures of my very own from live streaming on-line or 'USB Soundboard Sticks', way before the music became official. So these versions would still be 'virgin' before Todd and his organization remixed, edited & released. A perfect example is the 'Daryl's House' stuff. I stripped the audio off YouTube videos that Daryl was offering for free, years ago (long before the DVDs & his Website sundry). There's a few more like this. But I think you get my meaning. I put asterisks by all these seven situations. So basically nothing...Repeat NOTHING, has been taken directly from finished Official released CD or DVD product. I realize that I'm 'pushing the envelope' here, and I do not wish to get into a nuisance for these recordings I share.
My caveat on my TRC Webpage (http://trconnection.com/todd/arcd-r) reads: "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!"
Again, there's some wonderful rare music here. I pushed it to a Disc Four just for excellent Beatles Covers. It's all ESSENTIAL!~ Warren

Note:Yes, I know that the listing above is a mess, but I think you get the picture of how hard Gail worked on this project. Although they are all mp3s and no editing/remastering, what Gail has done here is; audio dub/captured just about ALL the audio of rare videos on YouTube to date (11/29/2017). How can we use it…you ask? Well me, I can always fall back on something I want here, convert it to WAV and modify/Edited it to the quality I need. Thank you Gail Artsgard!~ Warren

Note:On February 9th, Howard Stern Broadcast all these 25 Artists covering Bowie. Todd’s rendition of ‘Life On Mars’ is soooooo…faithful to Bowie, for he does a beautiful rendition. In fact all artists pretty much ‘nail’ their covers! I know of no one, even those that aren’t Bowie fans, that wouldn’t enjoy this incredible piece of listening pleasure! Tony Visconti introduces each piece of music. I list the entire recordings only for listing purposes. I do not forsee this being released on pro disc format. But who knows?~ Warren
