Runt: The Early Pressing
So, here it is, the early vinyl pressing of Todd Rundgren's debut, "Runt."
Only distinguishable from the common pressing by counting the bands on each side of the vinyl---this version had 5 tracks on one side and 7 on the other, as opposed to 4 and 6--the differences are as follows:
Broke Down & Busted- Short vocal intro extracted from "There Are No Words" as intro
Believe In Me - No differences
We Gotta Get You A Woman - No differences
Once Burned - Switched with "Who's That Man?"
Who's That Man - Switched with "Once Burned"
Hope I'm Around- Alternate version of tune that eventually appeared on "Ballad Of Todd Rundgren"
Devil's Bite - Several different edits, more notes in guitar solo
I'm In The Clique - No differences
There Are No Words - No differences
Baby Let's Swing - Full version with additional lyrics and without addition of other medley tunes "The Last Thing You Said/Don't Tie My Hands"
Say No More - Not found on later versions
I think if the response continues to be positive, "Todd Is Godd" Mondays will commence next week.
