Never Before Available on SACD: Mastered from the Original Stereo Tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio
Todd Rundgren followed up his 1972 solo masterpiece Something/Anything? with A Wizard, A True Star the following year, another monster album complete with 19 genre jumping tracks. As with most of his solo endeavors, Rundgren played all of the instruments, sang, wrote 17 of the 19 tunes and handled production duties. Included here are fully realized standouts like "Sometimes I Don't Know What to Feel" and "Just One Victory" along with his brilliant Philly soul R&B medley of "I'm So Proud," "Ooh Ooh Baby," "La La Means I Love You" and "Cool Jerk." Regarded as a major influence by bedroom musicians far and wide, Rundgren takes the listener on a hypnotic prog-rock journey here filled with exceptional guitar work and brilliant lyrical imagery.
