Nazz - Wildwood Blues
Todd Rundgren's Philadelphia supergroup, 1968. The few people I've met who saw Nazz live said they were terrific. Todd quit Nazz owing the world a third Nazz album & he owed me a Nazz concert at Asbury Park Convention Hall. Apparently, they didn't come north of Wildwood on the Jersey shore & to my knowledge never played NYC. What they refer to as "looking like 1953" included motels in the "doo wop" style, now considered classics & being demolished, like my beloved Lurae & the older motor court type Kismet across the street. But even in the Nineties I found Wildwood's music scene to be a bit ... lagging.
