A Wizard, a True Star is the fourth album by American musician Todd Rundgren, released on March 2, 1973. Its music was a significant departure from his previous album Something/Anything? (1972). He attributed the idiosyncratic sound of A Wizard, a True Star to his experimentation with psychedelic drugs, and said that he "became more aware. f what music and sound were like in my internal environment, and how different that was from the music I had been making.

A Wizard, a True Star. Before Rundgren turned to psychedelics on A Wizard, a True Star, he turned to Ritalin to make Something/Anything?, an obsessive, feature-length masterpiece in both a creative and technical sense. Rundgren performed the double LP almost entirely on his own, at a time when self-recording meant turning the tape on, running to another room to play each instrument, and then running back to press stop (hence the Ritalin). The album remains the definitive showcase of his gifts

A Wizard, A True Star is a music studio album recording by TODD RUNDGREN (Crossover Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. A Wizard, A True Star Rhino Records, Bearsville 1992.

A WIZARD also provides a fairly complete history of Rundgren as recording artist and techno/computer visionary. For Todd fans, this book is a serious must-have. Every album he made starting with Nazz, as a soloist or with Utopia is discussed in detail. We hear a lot from the Utopia regulars, Kasim Sulton, Roger Powell and Willie Wilcox. Along the way a few key personal facts are included, but the focus is really the music. I recommend this book for all lovers of 20th century pop and rock music, not just TR fans. In fact, if you're not a TR fan, all the more reason to read A WIZARD A TRUE STAR: TODD RUNDGREN IN THE STUDIO. There's no excuse in 2012 not to know who Todd is. He's perhaps the most underappreciated and underrated musical genius of the era. By: Todd Rundgren (1973, Electronic).
