Todd Rundgren A Wizard, A True Star LP on 180g 'green marbled' coloured black vinyl. Todd Rundgren’s masterpiece A Wizard, A True Star has everything to offer from the American multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. The studio genius recorded an album which was a significant departure from his previous album Something/Anything? With the money from the hit singles of this previous record he had built his own studio in New York, Secret Sound, and began recording A Wizard, A True Star. It’s pure greatness packed in 19 tracks, which just sporadically clocks above 2 minutes each. Psychedelic drugs had a big influence on the recording process. The beauty and hysteria of the music fits the bill perfectly. Humour and superior recording techniques going together in optima forma. Yes, this is one of those rare recordings which goes into history, and it still stand the test of time. Todd Rundgren is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and record producer who has performed a diverse range of styles as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia.

Todd Rundgren Bang Bang [Black Friday 19] Limited Black Friday release available in store from Friday 29th November. Any remaining stock will be available online from Saturday 30th November at 7:00am. Strictly 1 per customer. ‘Bang Bang’ has remained a curious single in the Squeeze discography, as it was nearly disowned by its songwriters Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford. Even more curious, however, is renowned wizard (and true star) Todd Rundgren covering it for the fourth installment in the Swindles series. Rundgren takes the song down a electropop wormhole, transforming the tune into something completely unique from the original recording. ‘Bang Bang’ was produced and engineered by Rundgren and Swindles-curator Steve Mandel and is available as a limited edition 45 single for Black Friday 2019.

Todd Rundgren / Utopia Disco Jets If we have stock left it will be available online from Saturday 23rd April, strictly one per customerLimited edition LP Esoteric Recordings began a series of releases drawn from TODD RUNDGREN’s extensive archive of recordings with the first stand-alone CD release of the DISCO JETS project, recorded in 1976 by TODD and his group UTOPIA, featuring JOHN SIEGLER (Bass, Vocals), ROGER POWELL (Keyboards, Vocals) and WILLIE WILCOX (Drums). The DISCO JETS sessions took place at Bearsville studios shortly after the release of TODD’s “Faithful” album and was a purely instrumental affair recorded “tongue in cheek” with sights firmly set upon the current trends of the time such as the US Bi-Centennial celebrations, Disco music, Science Fiction movies such as STAR WARS and the CB Radio fad. Featuring some memorable soloing from RUNDGREN and POWELL, the impressive ‘SPACE WAR’ and the memorable cover of the ‘STAR TREK’ theme, the DISCO JETS project would languish in the vaults for several decades before appearing as part of a Japanese only compilation, now long deleted. The ESOTERIC RECORDINGS release of DISCO JETS has been newly remastered from the master tapes and is sure to appeal to all TODD RUNDGREN and UTOPIA aficionados. LP Out of Stock
