“ Hello It ’ s Me ” - Nazz . Before he became a solo artist , Todd Rundgren was in a Philadelphia band called Nazz . This is the original version of the song that later became a huge solo hit for Todd . This version is much slower and more emotional and Todd is not the lead vocalist . It ’ s sung by Stewkey Antoni and it was released as the B-side of the Nazz single “ Open My Eyes ” in October , 1968 . It will always be a A-side for me though .
