When it comes to music, Todd-of-all-trades might be more appropriate than the traditional Jack to signify a man of many talents. Unlike Jack, though, Rundgren is a master of them all. "The Studio Wizardry of Todd Rundgren" traces the long journey from his early days at the board of Hollywood's ID Sound Studio, to his long stay at Bearsville, to his own self-built Secret Sound Studio in New York, his own Utopia Studio in the Catskill Mountains, and then on to Sausalito, where he produced several artists in the San Francisco Bay area. Rundgren's restless nature and diverse tastes are reflected in our choices with a wide-ranging mix of music and artists, and naturally he also contributes his own musical and compositional skills to many of the tracks. The productions themselves are selected from across the years 1970 to 1990, drawn from Rundgren's long career at the top during the golden age of recording when tape machines, bricks and mortar studios and a winning producer were the things that really mattered.
