Format: Audio CD
Recorded in several small intimate venues, with an extensive backing group including regular band Utopia and singers such as Hall and Oates and Stevie Nicks, this is one of my favourite live albums and still sounds great today after over 20 years. From heavy rock ('Black Maria') and synthesizer pop ('Real man') to soulful ballads ('The verb to love') and witty repartee with the audience, the album is virtually a Rundgren greatest hits, one of the few missing classics being the anthem 'Just one victory' a live version of which is of course on the earlier (also excellent) 'Another Live' album.
In many cases, it's hard to choose between the versions on this album and the original studio recordings, because although the dense multi-tracking of the original recordings could not be reproduced live, the tight playing of the band improves on the slightly disjointed feel of some of Todd's original recordings which he did alone in the studio.
And for those who may have associated Todd with pretentious synthesizer epics and cartoon zaniness, they can be assured that this album emphasises concise melodic songs which, for the most part, do great credit to his songwriting ability. There are only a couple of the pseudo philosophical ramblings from the period of the 'Initiation' album, and the rest is very much pop/rock as opposed to 'pomp rock'. In keeping with much of Todd's work, a lot of music was squeezed on to each side of the original record, so this is a pretty lengthy and good value live album. Highly recommended for both the ardent Rundgren fan and for those unfamiliar with his work.

If you have never heard Todd Rundgren but you are curious,this is the album for you.
Go on try it! Many of Todd's greatest tunes are on here.They come alive over some of the studio versions which sound a bit dated.The brilliant songwriting and melodies shine through.Todd is surely one of the greatest singers ever.
Your girlfriend will love Todd too.
Yet another advert for 70's rock and a worthy addition to your collection.TODD IS COOL!!!!!!!!!!
