A Capella - Todd Rundgren

Whoa! Wait a minute ! Yo, iTunes, you got something messed up here. This is a great album but you've got a song from another album and the wrong songs on certain listings. Johnee Jingo (a great anti-war tune) is listed but when sampled is actually "Drive" from TRs Tortured Artist Effect. Something to Fall.... when sampled is Johnee Jingo, Hodja is Pretending to Care, essentially Side 1 is goofed up. Side 2 seems correct. Stand out tracks are Miracle in the Bazaar, Lockjaw (hilarious!) and Johnee Jingo. DO NOT let the fact that the album is acapella because I forget all the time, when listeniing to it, that it is just voice. A testament to Todd that he can be inventive and extremely musical simply using his voice. Be careful before downloading Side 1, people.

I love this album

I saw Todd perform this tour in 1985 or 1986 in the Cleveland area when I was 17 or so. I thought it was the coolest thing and ran out the next day to puchase the album. It has been years since I have listened to it so I am quite pleased to see it on itunes. As the old followers of Todd say, "Todd is God". My cool big brother was into him, so maybe that is why I have such fondness and nostalgia for Todd in general. Micacle In The Bazaar always kind of freaked me out though, esp. the beginning when all of the voices are added gradually on to one another..... I always thought it would be good to use in some kind of horror movie, but that's just me. The rest of the album is very listenable and upbeat. I agree with the poster who said that he had leant this out and never had it return -- same here.

Explanation of track problems

I think Apple may have partly fixed some of the problems others have mentioned. Here's the current situation: There are ten songs here in the iTunes Music Store; they're the same ten songs that are on the original album. I have the cassette (original storebought version) right here in front of me, and the track list is the same, all ten songs (except for two track titles being out of order). The person who said there were only nine songs on the original album was either wrong or had a different version of the album. The only thing that's currently wrong with the iTunes Music Store version is that Apple switched the titles on two of the tracks: track 2 is labeled as "Something to Fall Back On," but the preview and the track itself are really "Johnee Jingo"; track 6 is labeled as "Johnee Jingo," but the preview and the track itself are really "Something to Fall Back On". I crossed my fingers and purchased the album here, and it turns out it's not just the preview snippets: the tracks themselves are the right music and in the same order as on the cassette, it's just that the titles of those two songs are switched. So after I purchased the album, I swapped the titles on those two tracks in my local copy, which fixed the problem for me. (I also listened to the first minute or so of each of the ten tracks after purchasing, and compared them with lyrics available on the web, to make sure that they're all the songs they should be, and they are.) Still, it's too bad that there's no way to get Apple to fix the problem -- I've tried telling them about this kind of problem with other albums in the past, and they never pay the slightest atention.

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Todd Rundgren's best-known songs -- the Carole King pastiche "I Saw the Light," the ballads "Hello, It's Me" and "Can We Still Be Friends," and the goofy novelty "Bang on the Drum All Day" -- suggest that he is a talented pop craftsman, but nothing more than that. On one level, that perception is true since he is undoubtedly a gifted pop songwriter, but at his core, Rundgren is a rock & roll maverick. Once he had a taste of success with his 1972 masterwork Something/Anything?, Rundgren chose to abandon...
