For all intents and purposes, THE VERY BEST OF TODD RUNDGREN is a one-disc condensation of Rhino's 1989 two-disc history ANTHOLOGY 1968-85. Wisely, this 16-track version de-emphasizes both Rundgren's spotty later career and his '70s jazz-rock band Utopia, whose thematic records and suitelike songs need to be heard in context to fully make sense.
Instead, THE VERY BEST OF TODD RUNDGREN focuses on the early days of the Philadelphia native's career, when he was effortlessly turning out soul-tinged pop classics like "We Gotta Get You a Woman," the impossibly wistful "Hello It's Me," and his two dead-perfect, impossible-to-improve-upon AM radio classics, the slinky "I Saw the Light" and the power-pop archetype "Couldn't I Just Tell You." In the context of these gems, even quirky later cuts like "The Want of a Nail" and "Bang the Drum All Day" sound stronger than before.
