    Faithful
    Todd Rundgren
    1976

    Unconventional album from an unconventional artist, from back before CDs were a thing.

    As LPs were the standard release format, artists' releases were limited or exploited by a Side One and a Side Two format. Rundgren, in this instance, used Side One for six very "faithful" covers of unique sounding recordings from Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, and The Yardbirds.

    Rundgren explained the motivation of the first side as treating rock music like European classical music, where a piece is performed over and over again in essentially the same way.

    Side Two is a half dozen strong original pop/rock tracks.

    His previous solo album, Initiation, used the LP format in a similar way, with Side One being a collection of intellectual rock songs, and Side Two a continuous multi-movement instrumental 35-minute epic synthesizer excursion inspired by the writings of early 20th-century occultist Alice Bailey, A Treatise on Cosmic Fire

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
