The Nazz - 'Hello It's Me'

Before Todd Rundgren was Todd Rundgren, he was one part of The Nazz, a psychedelic outing formed with Carson Van Osten and others in 1967.

'Hello It's Me' was popularized by Rundgren, the solo artist.  But Rundgren had authored the song years prior, and The Nazz recorded it, reaching No. 71 on the Billboard charts.  (The solo version, on the other hand, reached No. 5 in 1973).

Stream both The Nazz version and the Rundgren solo version of 'Hello It's Me' in the respective players below:
