Back To The Bars (1978)
Early “Best Of” Live Album

Though 1978’s Back To The Bars is not universally considered “prime” Todd, this double album has always been a personal favorite of mine. For the music, sure, but more for the experience of seeing Todd & Utopia around the time this came out. In this case, preceded by an elaborately planned concert experience – with some pals, some drugs and a two hour limo ride to and from an intimate venue . According to AMG, this album exists only because the head of Bearsville Records wanted a “greatest hits live” record to sell. These days, it seems to be available only on expensive imports at Amazon, HERE.

    In 1978 I was transplanting across the country, and goin thru some chch ch changes….so buying music wasnt something that was happening for me, and all my vinyl didnt follow me for about a year and a half…so it wasnt until about 82 when I finally started going back and picking up music that I should have already owned…this album was one of the first. What a piece of great relief it was for me! Thanx W!
