Digitally re-mastered edition in case-bound book packaging. When it was issued in 1975, at 68 minutes, INITIATION was the longest album ever on one piece of vinyl. It starts with Todd's classic Philly Soul single 'Real Man' and continues with the a cappella' Born to Synthesize'. Soul ballad 'Fair Warning' features Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer and Dan Hartman, while the title track features an amazing solo from sax legend David Sanborn. The entirety of side two was taken up with the 36 minute synthesizer extravaganza 'A Treatise on Cosmic Fire', which broke new ground in it's use of technology for creating music. It also marked the first appearance of future Utopia keyboard player Roger Powell. This new deluxe case-bound book edition contains all the lyrics, and extensive notes by Paul Myers, extracted from his definitive book a Wizard, a True Star: Todd Rundgren in the Studio.
