Product Description

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. The double LP "Something/Anything?" (1972) is regarded as Rundgren's pop masterpiece. Todd plays all the instruments himself on the first three sides of the original album, kicking off with his best-known hit "I Saw The Light", as well as the oft-covered "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference". By contrast, the fourth side included six live-in-the-studio performances with large ensembles, and featured the hit re-working of The Nazz's "Hello It's Me", the first song Rundgren ever wrote. The bonus tracks are a demo of "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference" and a two-minute compilation of six multitracked a cappella radio commercials. This new deluxe 2 CD casebound book edition contains all the lyrics, and extensive notes by Paul Myers, extracted from his definitive book on Todd Rundgren "A Wizard, A True Star: Todd Rundgren In The Studio".

Format: Audio CD
Todd came of age with this album, demonstrating his unique and in my opinion an unsurpassed ability as a gifted songwriter,guitarist,musician, singer and producer. This is probably Todd most accessable album probably because it features some of finest melodies you will ever find on any album. A listen to, It WouldnT Have made any Difference, Torch song, Cold Morning Light, Dust in the Wind, I Saw the Light,Hello its Me to name just a few you should be hooked. There are also a number of rockier numbers that illustrates his versatility as a musician. Along with Daryl Hall,Jay Ferguson (Spirit)I cannot think of any better male singers .Todd vocals are sublime through out as he has the ability to ring out of every song endless emotion that is very rare today.

This album is re released soon. Buy it and enhance your life.

Format: Audio CD
Released in the Spring of 1972 as a double-album on Bearsville Records - "Something/Anything?" proved what many had already known - after 3 albums with Sixties songsters NAZZ and two fine solo efforts in 1970 and 1971 - singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren was ready to drop the artistic motherlode. And he did it with style. Even now - 42 years after I first held its wondrous gatefold in my grubby Dublin paws - It still gives me a buzz just to look at it. Much like this lovely packaging upgrade. Here are the faithful details...

UK released 19 May 2014 (27 May in the USA) - Edsel EDSK 7070 (Barcode 740155707033) is a 2CD reissue of their October 2011 Expanded Version of "Something/Anything?" - only this time it's in a case bound hardback book:

1. I Saw The Light
2. It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference
3. Wolfman Jack
4. Cold Morning Light
5. It Takes Two To Tango (This Is For The Girls)
6. Sweeter Memories
7. Intro [Part 2]
8. Breathless
9. The Night The Carousel Burnt Down
10. Saving Grace Marlene
11. Song Of The Viking
12. I Went To The Mirror

Disc 2 - Parts 3 and 4 (52:03 minutes):
1. Black Maria
2. One More Day (No Word)
3. Couldn't I Just Tell You
4. Torch Song
5. Little Red Lights
6. Overture - My Roots [Part 4]
7. Dust In The Wind
8. Piss Aaron
9. Hello, It's Me
10. Some Folks Is even Whiter Than Me

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By The Pure Flying Poco Sage on 31 Jan. 2011
Format: Audio CD
A five-star album if ever there was one. I admit some bias here, as I consider Todd to be king of the world anyway (musically speaking) but he does appear to divide opinion. I think this is because he is so capable in so many fields that his unpredictability unsettles some listeners. He is also willing to take risks in exploring different musical styles, just like Neil Young. Not everything always comes off (eg some of the synthesised noodling on 'Todd'), but on this album everything works. Great singing (often overlooked amongst his many talents)guitar and arrangements and of course his fabulous songs with unforgettable melodies. Some of his most accessible and best known stuff, 'I saw the light' and 'Hello it's me', is here that even doubters seem to like. Just brilliant from start to finish. I can still feel the thrill I got on discovering it over 30 years ago and I've owned it on LP, cassette and CD twice since then. 'A Wizard,a true star' he may be better known for(and it's also a great album) but this where he really proved it first. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Come on readers.....you're being a bit hard on Jason Parkes' review. If you've not yet discovered this truly WONDROUS album, then try and find the time to do so. It will change your life. This comes from a time when "Our Hero" was at the top of his game, features a truck-load of his greatest songs and provides the perfect insight into Todd's (then) god-like genius. He writes, sings, plays and produces just about everything. (The exception being side 4 of the original double LP, where he's helped out by guest singers and musicians.)

So special that you will want to share it with one who has the potential to be the love of your life. (I did, but she still didn't hang around.) There's hardly a duff song in there. Trust me! However, i won't go as far as promising to refund your money if you're disappointed.

Format: Audio CD
I picked this up whilst in Tokyo without any previous knowledge of the album, no matter how hard i try all my favourite albums seem to be picked up in this random way, radio and research have nothing on random!

Anyway, this is certainly one of my favourite albums, its perfectly produced, sounding great on a tinny pair of laptop speakers or my full blown audiophile headphone set up or hifi. The music can change quite dramatically from track to track which adds to the longevity and versatility of this album.
My only negative would be that you must have a tolerance to mildly cheesy moments, but the music is so very excellent it almost isn't cheesy anymore, like a great elton john for example.

One of the most criminally under-heard/rated albums of all time.
