The Nazz - Forget All About It (1969)
Opener of the band's second LP Nazz Nazz, which had been projected as a double.
Led by Todd Rundgren, Nazz were actually a sort of Philadelphia super-group. Their first LP was too good, too tight, too British for the time. But it was fantastic. The sentiments of this song, of political disengagement, went against trends. They had a great live rep, but they never played around New York. Because of Rundgren's subsequent career, people tend to forget the other three guys also had egos, & came to resent Rundgren's domination in the studio.
