Product description

Product Description

Rundgren started the band Utopia in 1974 to run concurrently with his solo career. Whilst using many of the same musicians, the band was a more democratic affair. The first two albums “Todd Rundgren’s Utopia” (1974) and “Another Live” (1975) will be issued later in Edsel’s reissue programme.

 

By mid-1976, when they appeared on the bill at The Rolling Stones’ Knebworth Concert, Utopia’s line-up had settled to the quartet of Todd (guitar), Roger Powell (keyboards), Kasim Sulton (bass) and John Wilcox (drums). All four contributed vocals and compositions.

 

The first release by this line-up was the prog classic album “Ra” in January 1977, featuring the 18 minute epic “Singring And The Glass Guitar” and the disturbing “Hiroshima”, which they had performed at Knebworth. Supported by an extravagant Egyptian-themed European tour, the album became Rundgren’s highest charting UK album.

 

The swift follow-up album “Oops! Wrong Plant” (September 1977) was a completely different affair, containing twelve short songs, a mixture of pop rock and heavy rock, but ending with another of Todd’s anthems “Love Is The Answer”. The cover version by England Dan and John Ford Coley was a US Top 10 hit in 1979.

 

The package contains ephemera and rare photos, all the lyrics, and extensive
