Todd On Monday : Live "Arena"
To make my life easier, I am cutting and pasting something I had written in October of 2008, as it is exactly what I need to say here.
"Todd Rundgren's performance at the Tarrytown Music Hall this past Saturday night added a much needed reinforcement to our relationship. If it wasn't the 100th time I've seen him live since 1975, it was very close and this show rivaled the best of those classic shows from Central Park's Wollman Rink & The Bottom Line after a very uneven 15 year patch of live dates. You could read the full review at The Huffington Post."
I also took some not bad video that night. You could check that out below.
Here is a wonderful recording of that night, 10/11/08, courtesy of Frank. B. My first few visits with "Arena" left me cold. As I say in the HP review, it wasn't necessarily the songs, but the sound of the recording. Hearing the record live in its entirety, changed my mind completely. Hope you enjoy it.
love in action
the walls came down
open my eyes
i saw the light
couldn't i just tell you
just one victory
