A Wizard, a True Star/Todd Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Edsel’s 2011 two-fer of A Wizard, a True Star and Todd combines remastered versions of two of Todd Rundgren’s wildly imaginative records on one set and adds three bonus tracks to the mix: a live broadcast version of “Ooh Baby Baby” from 1971, then two live cuts from a November 1974 show in St Louis -- “A Dream Goes on Forever” and a cover of the Move’s “Do Ya.” Not the most revelatory bonus tracks, but the rawness of the live versions acts as a nice counterpoint to the in-the-studio head trips of the two LPs showcased here.
