Additional Details

"I was just trying to recreate what the radio was like... radio was eclectic, before everything became syndicated,,, You never knew what you were going to hear, and that was kind of the fun part about it." Todd Rundgren

Released in 1976, Todd Rundgren’s "Faithful" once again proved the genius of this multitalented artist and his gift for releasing eventful albums throughout his amazing career, which has spanned now for over 5 decades.

Featuring a half dozen stellar cover versions “faithfully” recorded as the way he heard these songs from the radio growing up in Upper Darby, PA, as well as another side of then brand new compositions, Friday Music is very pleased to announce the first time ever Premium Sound edition of his classic "Faithful" on 2 Lp's (2 x 33 1/3 RPM).

To truly enhance your Todd Rundgren experience, we are also for a very limited time
pressing this classic on stunning Gold Vinyl. We will be presenting "Faithful" in a first time ever gatefold cover, with extensive liner notes featuring a brand new interview with the rock legend himself.

Much like our recent and acclaimed 2 Lp version of his classic "A Wizard, A True Star", this stunning new version of "Faithful" will become one of your favorite Todd Rundgren albums to revisit for years to come. In a recent discussion, describing our version of "A Wizard; A True Star" the artist equated the expanded vinyl release as “more real estate” which we believe is a brilliant analogy on why we’ve chosen to do this for "Faithful" as another installment in our Premium Sound editions for Friday Music.

And he’s been very successful with other cover songs like his brilliant reading of The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” which was a highlight at Top 40 radio from this masterwork, netting him a Top 30 hit in 1976.

The "Faithful" album would feature gold star material that would follow his concert
performances to this day like “Love of The Common Man,” “Cliché” “Black and White” and “The Verb to Love”. Plus, his interpretations of his classic cover versions of The Beatles "Strawberry Fields Forever" , Jimi Hendrix's "If Six Was Nine" and The Yardbirds' "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago" were "faithfully" recorded to a T, even netting Todd with a Top 30 Billboard chart single with The Beach Boys classic "Good Vibrations."

"Faithful" has always been one of Todd’s favorites as well, and we are very pleased to offer this wonderful album once again on vinyl, first time in this Premium Sound format, and hope that it will continue to be one of your favorite Todd Rundgren albums to revisit for years to come.
