Before we go any further - if you have not bought the Individualist CDe - why not? - it's quite amazing!!

These pages should allow those who've bought the CDe, but cannot yet access the multimedia content, to share in the mind blowing visuals.

The following is the quote from the back of 'The Individualist Software Box'
Songwriter, recording artist, video pioneer, producer, computer software developer ...

Visionary Todd Rundgren does it again with the Individualist.

Much more than the standard fan club fare of interviews and photos, The Individualist is a harmonious marriage of image and sound. A recognised master of art and technology, Rundgren combines his original music and exquisite graphics to create yet another innovative form of expression. Ten new songs each with an accompanying visual, interactive lyrics to navigate the album and full CD quality sound make this a disc like no other you'll see or hear.

Please remember this information and pictures, were only made possible by :-

Summary of the different releases of the Individualist.

The News Breaks

  • A member of the awizard mailing list gets a promo review of the Individualist at the tail end of '94 - a few copies circulate the TR-i community - 5th generation copies are not unheard of!

  • Your chance tojoin this mailing list -

Japanese Release

  • March '95 - Pony Canyon based in Japan - release of the 'I' but No CDe part. I ordered my copy thru' CDNow! (a USA on-line music store).

  • My claim to fame is that my copy is the most travelled, Japan to USA to UK and must the dearest - I had to pay UK import taxes as the Customs grabbed it - it must have cost $85+. A small price to pay for such a masterpiece!

  • A kind friend from Japan translated the Japanese cover notes.
