The album reached #80 on the U.S. album chart.
Originally intended as a double album titled Fungo Bat, Nazz Nazz is at once as equally diverse and more cohesive than the Nazz’s eponymous debut. It’s a weird trick, but the group pulls it off, largely due to the rapidly maturing talents of Todd Rundgren, their main songwriter and producer. Throughout the Nazz’s first record, he proved that he was a gifted mimic and a savvy melodicist, yet he never quite landed upon a signature style outside of their debut single “Hello It’s Me”/”Open My Eyes.” Not coincidentally, these were the two songs on the record that the Nazz produced themselves, and they followed that lead on Nazz Nazz, fusing their sundry influences into a distinctive psych pop sound. Sonically, it’s certainly more ambitious than its predecessor and, apart from the odd forays into soul and blues (filtered through Cream, naturally) on “Featherbedding Lover” and “Kiddie Boy,” it’s more consistent.
