Todd Rundgren's first solo album after the breakup of his '60s band the Nazz originally didn't even feature his name on the cover; despite Rundgren being the only person pictured on the sleeve, it was treated as the self-titled debut of the "band" Runt. (This also explains the confusing title of the second Runt/Rundgren album, RUNT: THE BALLAD OF TODD RUNDGREN.)
RUNT contains at least two spectacular songs, the soulful piano-rock hit "We Gotta Get You a Woman" and the snide pop-rocker "I'm in the Clique," along with the choogling opener "Broke Down and Busted"--featuring members of the Band, who shared management with Rundgren--and the first of the extended pop-soul medleys that would become a recurring theme in Rundgren's career. Though perhaps not as impressive as later masterpieces like SOMETHING/ANYTHING? and A WIZARD A TRUE STAR, RUNT is an unpretentious gem.
