1972’s Something/Anything? by Todd Rundgren was one of the 70s most ambitious records. The album included the hits “Hello It’s Me,” and “I Saw the Light” and also showcased “It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference” and “Couldn’t I Just Tell You”. Most recently, the album and song “Hello It’s Me” were featured in the premiere episode of HBO Max’s Sex and The City revival series, And Just Like That !… pushing it into the charts again.
Someone/Anyone? is the 50th Anniversary tribute to Todd Rundgren’s Classic 1972 double album, Something/Anything? It features 25 tracks presented in the same order with re-invented covers of the songs by a diverse group of artists including Marshall Crenshaw, Kasim Sulton (Utopia), Stan Lynch, founding member of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Dennis Diken (The Smithereens), Louise Goffin, members of Brian Wilson’s touring band, and many more.
Slated for release on February 1, 2022 on the actual 50th Anniversary of the original release, all net profits from sales will go to Todd Rundgren’s Spirit Of Harmony charity, which advocates music in schools. The project is the brainchild of Echo In The Canyon producer/multi-instrumentalist Fernando Perdomo. In 2021, Perdomo also created a 50th Anniversary edition of Paul and Linda McCartney’s Ram.
Something/Anything? is the classic Todd Rundgren album. Equal parts commercial and eclectic, it’s considered a quirky masterpiece in the same way as The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds and Big Star’s Third. And it’s still turning heads today. It was just listed as one of the top 40 singer/songwriter records by ultimateclassicrock.com.
