Todd Rundgren - "Hermit of Mink Hollow & Healing/Ever Popular Tortured Artist Effect [Import] Rock
Famed producer extraordinaire (Meatloaf's "Bat Out Of Hell", XTC, Psychedelic Furs, New York Dolls, Patti Smith, The Tubes, Hall & Oates, Steve Hillage etc) Todd Rundgren has always maintained his own highly successful parallel recording career, encompassing a wide range of musical styles. These three truly `solo' albums (Todd plays every instrument and sings every vocal) were released between 1978 and 1982 on the legendary Bearsville label and feature some of Todd's best-known songs: "Can We Still Be Friends" (covered by both Robert Palmer and Rod Stewart), "Healer" and "Bang The Drum All Day". The package contains all the lyrics (for the first time for "Healing"), and extensive notes by Paul Myers, extracted from his definitive book on Todd Rundgren "A Wizard, A True Star: Todd Rundgren In The Studio". NB: The albums are presented out of chronological order in order to avoid splitting "Healing" across two discs.
