8-Trackin’: Todd Rundgren, ‘A Wizard, A True Star’ (1973) — 2 Comments

  1. I should mention that even getting this tape was somewhat death-defying. I bought it months ago from an old hippie who runs a record store in Oregon. He had his 8-tracks in the retail space/storage unit next to his shop, which he locked up to take me over there. As we stepped carefully through the cluttered space stuffed with music media of all sorts, lit only by a few shop lights, I realized that this stranger could easily have slain me then and there: I was alone on this trip and had left little digital or other trail behind me. Of course he did not; instead he just sold me this killer Todd tape plus 8-tracks of David Bowie, Bob Marley, and Van Halen. The things we do for music…

  2. Grade A job Mr. T. – and a great background story. I’ve been a Todd fan since the 1st Nazz lp and a devotee to AWATS since my first listen to the opening track International Feel.
