 Notes & Reviews
 
Woody's Truck Stop came together in Philadelphia, in late May 1966. As young teens, drummer Bob Radeloff and guitarist Alan Miller had been active in a folk group that played in the local area. Miller and Radeloff soon were adding drummer Artie Heller and bassist Carson Van Osten to form a group of their own, heavily inspired by electric blues acts like the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and the Blues Project, as well as Chess blues artists and British blues-rock groups like the Yardbirds. Inspired by a variety of British Invasion groups, from the omnipresent Beatles to cult favorites the Move, Todd Rundgren and his Woody's Truck Stop colleague Carson Van Osten formed the Nazz in 1967. Taking their name from an obscure Yardbirds song, the Nazz were arguably the first Anglophiles in rock history. Compilation of late-'60s demos, alternate takes and unreleased compositions of Todd Rundgren and his early cult band, the Nazz - Songs include Hello It's Me, Open My Eyes and Some People, with unreleased tracks Forget All About It, Only One Winner, Magic Me and others - With only three LPs recorded in their existence, this collection delivers the goods to satisfy the tastes and curiosities of the hard core fanbase.
