IT'S SO MUCH BETTER WITH TWO
If you read my review of (re)Production, you got that I was not overwhelmed with Todd Rundgren's last studio effort.
I like the CD of the live Todd concert show from 2010 much better (have not watched the DVD as I type this), but heard a rumour that Todd's next effort is a duets album.
The project is partly inspired by the success of his collaboration with old Philadelphia friend Daryl Hall on "Live from Daryl's House," not once but twice!
Does that mean we'll see a collection of blue-eyed soul duets with Hall and other great singers, possibly Todd's twist on the great American songbook?
Have you paid attention to Todd's career?
According to Todd, "There are no known names. I will be singing duets with people that are YouTube phenomena - writing songs specifically for each of them. It's my cunning way to ensure that the project is a success..."
At least he's writing the songs-a step back in the right direction after the last record.
