Nazz: Fungo Bat Acetates

The Nazz came out of Philadelphia and they began to make a big splash late in 1967. They were unusual for their time combining elements of The Yardbirds, The Who, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Kinks and Cream. Their name "The Nazz" came from a Yardbirds song called "The Nazz Are Blue." They were a current band in 1968 and 1969. Just as groups like CSN&Y and Santana were starting to climb the charts and the Woodstock Nation loomed nearby, with everybody sporting beards, mustaches, T-shirts and jeans, the guys in the Nazz looked like The Tremeloes or The Small Faces. 

Nazz's second album was to be a double album (as per Todd's wishes), called Fungo Bat. Recording began in Nov 1968 and completed in Spring (March) 1969. Due to band members indifference & management decisions, it was never released as such and Todd left the band to pursue a solo career. Todd's personal copies of the Fungo Bat Acetates were among the possessions lost in a fire at his home. The source of the recordings are from an individual in Austin, Texas, who once owned one of the only known copies of the acetates for Fungo Bat. It was three 12" acetates, with typed labels. The track listing on the acetates are just in order, 24 tracks - if this was indeed the album order, what is listed above is the logical place for album side breaks

With Todd Rundgren - guitar; Robert "Stewkey" Antoni - vocals, keyboards; Carson Van Osten - bass; Thom Mooney - drums.
