Todd Rundgrens Utopia/Another Live (2 Albums On 2 CDs)
Todd Rundgrens Utopia/Another Live (2 Albums On 2 CDs)
Price: 9.51

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Great, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought both of these as vinyl on release (they are probably still cluttering my mums attic as I write)

Until this purchase I doubt I had listened to either album in over a quarter of a century and I was a bit dubious but, I needn't have worried, they still sound fabulous. I don't remember particularly liking side 2 of Utopia at the time but now it really does seem to buzz with ideas.

If you're a Todd fan you'll already know that these (particularly Utopia) were a challenging departure from their immediate predecessors and - if you're relatively new to Todd - don't go expecting Something/Anything? style ballads and power pop 'cos it ain't here! But these incarnations of Utopia also revisited the earlier material, live, and anyone who saw them at Hammersmith in November '75 will testify that this was a great, great Todd band: "Another Live" bears this out

Unfortunately after the next couple of studio albums (Initiation and Faithful) which are both worth a gander the Utopia experiment went totally, in MHO, prog-untastic ("Singring and the Glass Guitar", anyone?). Skip them and re-board the train at Hermit.

Sorry wittered on there. This release is well worth buying if you have any interest at all in one of rock's great genii!

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon, a question, 17 Aug 2012
This review is from: Googoosha (Audio CD)
Does Amazon really think that it is right should be helping to line the pockets of such a person by selling this, frankly, awful product?

Perhaps given her, and her family's, history with regards to human rights you should withdraw this from sale on the site.

5.0 out of 5 stars Business Fixed, 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
EMI (and the Feelgoods) have done an outstanding job in presenting this box/booklet. Hadn't heard the 2006 digital remaster of "Down by the Jetty" before (digital remaster of mono product - loving it!) and this sounds just absolutely perfect. The 2012 jobs and the bonus material are equally well done.

The DVD is an absolute treasure and brought back happy memories (especially the Kursaal gig which was my first live recording as an audience member). The interview sequence really underlines the link between the band and punk with Wilko especially providing a pretty good J Lydon before we'd heard of him.

Invest, invest, invest!

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, RT fans avoid!, 17 Jun 2011
Did not purchase this from Amazon - (but Amazon you should not really be selling this item) - but from HMV (who really, also, should know better) on Oxford Street.

Not surprised at the comments from RTs management - this a sub standard product (and just above very poor bootleg level)
