Todd & Neil
The Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello collaboration continues to get heavy airplay in my house, especially since those brilliant demos got an offical release on the deluxe "Flowers In The Dirt" set. Running a close second are the two "Live From Daryl's House" broadcasts that featured the two Philly giants, Todd Rundgren & Daryl Hall performing each other's material, as well as some choice covers. It's amazing how two artists can bring their A-game when they need to.
At some point this year, Todd Rundgren will release a sequel of sorts to "White Knight," his album of collaborations with the likes of Trent Reznor, Donald Fagen, & Joe Walsh, among others. Some of the new collaborations include The Roots, Rivers Cuomo and yet another musical hero of mine, the great Neil Finn. Here is that Todd & Neil track, "Artist In Residence" which Rundgren previewed when he guest DJ'd a radio show whose name I can't recall, a few months back.
