These albums represent the first five solo single albums of TR with the omission only of 1973's A Wizard, A True Star, 1975's Initiation and 1981's Healing. Given the brilliance of his 1970s double albums including the classic Something/Anything? you might be forgiven for perhaps regarding this set as "the remnants" but what you actually have here are his first two pop-style solo albums that immediately preceded Something/Anything? (both confusingly named Runt), a mixed album of covers and original material, Faithful, and two excellent later albums. Of the two later albums, Hermit is the standout but I won't add to the reviews of the album elsewhere on Amazon other than to say that it is one of my top ten albums of all time. The Tortured Artist album is less good but still very listenable and includes the turntable hit Bang on the Drum All Day. All the usual provisos about this series apply regarding the size of the print on the miniature album covers and the lack of any extras, however for little more than the price of Hermit of Mink Hollow alone this is a must buy set for anyone with even just a passing interest in the genius that is Mr Rundgren.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fed Up.... 9 Feb 2011
.....that in January 2010, with a monetary gift I received the previous Christmas, I bought four of these five CDs (not 'The Ever Popular....') individually. I still got change from 25.00 but when this was released in March 2010 you can imagine my feelings. However I remain happy to own some of Todds earlier recordings which I had previously only had on vinyl. Of course nothing compares to 'Something/Anything' or 'Todd'...in my opinion both slightly ahead of 'A Wizard....'. One thing that does disappoint from these recordings, and moreso on 'Initiation', is that, as an uber-producer, the production quality is not up to current high standards so......hows about some remasters. Todd is currently recreating all his early work in live performances so could he go back to the studio and polish up his recordings. However, this collection...now priced at 9.99...is an essential purchase for anyone who appreciates top-notch songwriting....Go for it, it's a bargain........

4.0 out of 5 stars A curious selection. 17 Dec 2010
Indeed, Sasquatch. Let's set the record straight and stop confusing potential purchasers! "Something/Anything?" (third solo) is a double LP which is only just a bit too long for one compact disc. "A Wizard...." (fourth solo) is a very long single LP, clocking in at a touch over an hour and sold as a perfectly normal single disc. "Todd" (fifth solo) is a double LP, but it also comfortably fits onto a single disc. Doh! For the sake of being thorough, "Initiation" is the sixth solo album. Also clocking in at over an hour, and sold as an ordinary, single cd.

And here we get this rather strange, unsequential regrouping of Todd solo albums, like several of these "Original Albums" packages. (The first, second, seventh, eighth and eleventh solo albums.) An okay album ("Runt"), three essential Todd albums ("Ballad Of...", "Faithful" and "Hermit...) and a rather dire one ("The Ever Popular...."). One suspects that this is a cunning record industry idea to get punters to buy dodgy albums which they otherwise do not want. Perhaps there will be a second "Original Albums" volume of Todd's back catalogue, but still not somehow managing to find room for one of his veritable classics.

This package of five albums remains good value-for-money, in spite of the above reservations, but purchasers are still lacking some really key releases. However, i simply hate the idea of being "force-fed" a duff title and have subsequently docked this package a star!!! To deem "TEPTAE" as being one of Todd's worthwhile discs is to treat the paying public as nincompoops.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'A True Star' at a great price. 1 Nov 2011
By BernieA
This collection represents great value and helped me to replace some long gone vinyl. I guess most people who buy this box set will know what they are getting and won't be disappointed with some great songs from Todds' early years on original albums.
