The last summer month of 1978 saw Todd Rundgren coming off his guest-featuring extravaganza to a regular operation mode with a band the Hermit wanted to be seen as an equal part of – without eschewing his newly embraced back repertoire. As a result, the first shows of UTOPIA’s trek mixed Todd’s solo material with ensemble creations, although it wasn’t before autumn that the quartet reached a more balanced approach to their set, but the roughness of a fresh start added charm to the previously unreleased performances captured on these two discs

Todd Rundgren's Utopia is the debut album by the American band Todd Rundgren's Utopia. Rundgren (who was primarily a pop musician at the time) had decided to delve into progressive rock. Putting together several musicians, including three keyboardists, the album covers a variety of styles including funk, jazz, classical and even avant-garde music.
Live 1978 at The Old Waldorf San Francisco venue is a continuation of the Todd Rundgren archive series by UK- based Esoteric Recordings. Previously unreleased, the engineers' remastering effort seems to have paid off, as the overall sound is acceptable; although, the lower-end bass response is a bit weak. This concert was originally recorded for a broadcast by local radio station K-SAN and includes pieces culled from Rundgren's solo albums and Utopia's body of work. Rundgren's pop legacy includes his artisanship as a t, producer and sound engineer. Personnel: Todd Rundgren: vocals, guitar; Kasim Sulton: vocals, bass; Roger Powell: vocals, keyboard; Willie Wilcox: vocals, drums.
