Todd Rundgren / Hermit of Mink Hollow limited edition coloured vinyl

Music On Vinyl’s Todd Rundgren reissue campaign continues with a limited edition coloured vinyl pressing of 1978’s Hermit of Mink Hollow.

Rundgren’s eighth solo album saw the American musician leave the experimentation of previous releases behind and return to a more pop-oriented singer-songwriter mode. Hermit of Mink Hollow is the first album to be written and recorded entirely by Rundgren himself and the album features ‘Can We Still Be Friends’ which Robert Palmer covered for his Secrets album, issued a year later in 1979.

This new edition of Hermit of Mink Hollow is pressed on 180g blue marbled vinyl (actually a mix of blue, white & black) and is limited to 1000 individually numbered copies.

It is released on 13 December 2019, although before that (on 29 November) coloured vinyl editions of A Wizard, a True Star and Faithful will be released. Everything is on the SDE shop.

Hermit of Mink Hollow is limited to 1000 individually numbered copies on blue marbled coloured vinyl (mixed) and is released by Music On Vinyl on 13 December 2019.

i don’t feel todd is a marginal figure. he is well known and has been for decades.
he may have alienated larger audiences by a bit of genre hopping.
i personally prefer the earlier pre utopia bits myself.
upper darby’s finest!

I’m not interested in any of these vinyl editions, but it’s nice to have Todd at least get some attention – it continually amazes me how marginal a figure he is for one of *the* great rock singer/songwriters…

… and for it’s worth, HOMH is (arguably) the best entry point for any interested TR newbies, an all-killer, no-filler single album, with his prog-gy experimental tendencies kept to a minimum, and only the dreadful ‘Onomatopoeia’ spoiling the classic-70s-rock party.

I went to play this last weekend then realised I didn’t have a vinyl copy! Problem solved – thanks Paul.

When initially released in 1978, WEA Canada issued coloured vinyl limited editions of Hermit. I have a red and a green version but there may have been others as well.

Is this the Steve Ferguson from Louisville? If so I loved you 2 albums. And yes I love Todd, I met him at the University of Evandville many years ago. Love all of his albums.


Limited by quantity or quality? If it’s the latter, then it’s just a reissue, yes?
