If you didn't get to see Rundgren on his recent, rare career retrospective tour, and you like his music or maybe only know a half dozen of his songs, I think you should buy this. And if you DID get to see this tour, I think you should buy this. And if you've been a fan for decades, I think you should buy this. Basically, unless you know enough about him to know he's not for you, I think you should buy this.
His voice is solid, he's focused, the set list is solid (going back to as early as the Nazz, and up into more recent material). Practically everything you think you'd want on this recording is here in the way of the hits (Hello It's Me, I Saw The Light, Bang The Drum, Couldn't I Just Tell You) as well as rarely heard tunes like Drive, with its strong message of self-determination.
Hey, and you know what else? For you long time fans you're not getting your umpteenth recording of Just One Victory. Its absence makes room for songs you haven't heard in a long...
The release of Evening with Todd Rundgren. is a two fold package. There is a Cd that has most of the songs (18) and a DVD that has all of them (25). So you can watch them or just listen. I saw Todd play material from Global at a local venue, and the audience was disappointed. Later that year (2015), Todd returned with his band and delivered all the songs Todd is known for. This seems to be what the people want. So all those grouchy old fogies who are still living in the seventies, should buy this CD/DVD set. Todd had to bypass his creativity, and deliver an oldies set for the fans who can not accept his new ideas. This is well done, and well performed.The one new track that survived the dismay over Global is "Soothe". . This is one of his best, and hopefully a keeper in his catalog of great songs. Even new fans should check out the set, because Todd definitely put forth an effort to please his longtime fans.
This is not a tired run through of old classics - Todd and the band stretch to some less well known material (with Soothe and God Said being standouts) as well as energised performances of Todd standards. For me the DVD is the champion of this package nuthin fancy just a master song craftsmen and his musical co-horts showing us all how rock music should be. Wish I had been there
