Todd Rundgren: Initiation
Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, July 1975
INITIATION IS A RECORD in two senses of the word. That is to say, it's a world record, as Todd Rundgren has been at pains to point out the longest duration of any single LP, 68:11. Todd hopes this dubious distinction (I can think of albums less than one-third its length More Greatest Hits by the Dave Clark Five, for one with more musical impact; it's all in how you use it) will qualify it for the Guinness Book.
Total word count of piece: 440
