Todd Rundgren to launch 13-disc set

Todd Rundgren is the subject of a 13-disc box set containing the records he released between 1970 and 1982.

The Complete Bearsville Albums Collection contains the work he did with the label following his split with The Nazz, including Runt, The Hermit Of Mink Hollow and A Wizard, A True Star.

Rhino Records say: “It was 1972’s seminal Something/Anything? – on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts and acted as his own producer – that catapulted Rundgren into the superstar limelight.

The Complete Bearsville Albums Collection houses 11 albums inside a 13CD clamshell box, showcasing the complete collection of Rundgren’s finest work released on the exceptionally cool Bearsville label.”

It’s released on February 26.
