Todd Rundgren A Wizard, A True Star Hybrid SACD
Mastered from the original stereo tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio
As founding member of the late sixties Philly rockers Nazz, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter and producer Todd Rundgren was barely in his 20's when he began his long solo journey and became one of the music industry's most prolific and celebrated rock artists.
For his very lengthy (close to sixty minutes) 4th album A Wizard, A True Star, the legendary Todd Rundgren delivered a huge album event complete with 19 stellar performances making this one of his most revered efforts of his four decade career. As with many of his solo albums, Todd played all of the instruments, sang, wrote 17 of the 19 tunes and produced this masterwork.
The album also catapulted Todd Rundgren's marquee as a singer/songwriter even further with his smash radio hits Just One Victory, Sometimes I Don't Know What to Feel and his brilliant Philly soul R&B Medley: I'm So Proud, Ooh Ooh Baby, La La Means I Love You and Cool Jerk.
Album opener International Feel immediately brings the listener onto a hypnotic prog-rock journey as only Todd Rundgren can deliver. With solid tracks like You Need Your Head, filled with exceptional guitar work, solid lyrical imagery and his rockin' vocals, the artist truly pours it all out on this album.
More Todd favorites abound as When The Shit Hits The Fan: Sunset Blvd. sets the stage for the rest of this masterwork into full swing.
