The Very Best of Todd Rundgren

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Very Best of Todd Rundgren distills the Runt's career to just the hit singles, which is surprisingly effective. Most casual Todd fans will only want the hits -- "We Gotta Get You a Woman," "I Saw the Light," "Hello, It's Me," "Bang on the Drum" -- and not invest in the double-disc set Anthology 1968-1985, which simply contains too much music for most listeners. With The Very Best of, all of the good stuff including "The Want of a Nail," which is not on Anthology is here, satisfying the needs of the casual and curious.

    Love the CD. Liked every track on the CD. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    I actually have 2 copies of this Cd. I couldn't find my first copy and bought a second copy. I am trying to avoid buying a third copy.
