Todd Rundgren’s Utopia-“The Very Last Time” Boston 11-79

It was once said of Todd Rundgren, the stupendously gifted singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer, that his only problem was finding other musicians good enough to play with him(the same could easily be said for Prince, except Rundgren can’t dance in 4-inch stacked heels). But for a period in the late 1970s, Todd Rundgren may have had one of the greatest live bands ever containing bass player Kasim Sulton, drummer Willie Wilcox, and keyboard player Roger Powell, all of whom could sing lead vocals as well. Here’s “The Very Last Time”, totally live with absolutely no overdubs, from a concert broadcast from a Boston club on Thanksgiving eve 1979. –Redbeard
