Paul McCartney + Todd Rundgren + Memphis = Van Duren. Van made probably the best album from the ’77-’78 local power pop “scene.” I use quotes because that “scene” consisted of three bands, a revolving cast of girfriends, about 20 midtown weirdos, and no clubs that would book those bands more than once. So barely a scene at all. Which is why everyone tried relocating, with varying degrees of failure.
Great song, although he might have overused the “whoas.”
