Todd (album)

Todd is the fifth album and second double album by Todd Rundgren, released in February 1974. It was an expansion of his experimentation on his previous album, A Wizard, a True Star. It showed his growing interest in the synthesizer, and its ability to expand the textures of rock music. Much of the album is intensely experimental. However, it is not without its share of pop songs. Todd also tinkers with the synth-heavy progressive sound he would take further with his later band Utopia. First issues of this LP included a large wall poster; all the lyrics appeared on one side, while the other was Todd's cover portrait in shades of fine print, consisting of the names of 10,000 fans who had sent in the postcard included with A Wizard, a True Star.

Release of the album, originally conceived as (but too long for) a single disc, was delayed by a vinyl shortage caused by the 1973 oil crisis. This was further compounded by reluctance from the record label, Bearsville, to release a new album when his song " Hello It's Me" from Something/Anything? remained strong on the singles charts.

Other lore from Todd is the battle with Rundgren over the label's desire to release the song "Izzat Love?" as a single. The artist insisted the song was indicative of a music style he no longer wished to pursue, and won under threat to never record again should the song be released.

The closing track "Sons of 1984" was recorded live in Central Park and includes singing from the audience on the chorus. Rundgren also overdubbed another audience in San Francisco singing the chorus, humorously crediting the combined vocal group as "First United Church of the Cosmic Smorgasbord."

"Lord Chancellor's Nightmare" is a cover of a Gilbert & Sullivan song from their 1882 opera Iolanthe.
