If you were a young guitar player growing up in Philly in the 70s (like me), you were a fan of Hendrix, Page, all those guys, but Todd Rundgren was The Guy – the local hero made good. After two albums with The Nazz, TR struck out on his own with a string of solo albums and became known as the ‘Hello, It’s Me’ guy. But the first two had some serious guitar work going on, and Tod was always good for a rocker or two on every record. This is from 1971’s The Ballad of Todd Rundgren, and it’s always been a fave of mine. Here’s to early 70s Power Pop, Philly-style.
