Background: Released in 1978, The Hermit of Mink Hollow was the eighth solo album by Todd Rundgren.

The album reached #36 on the U.S. album chart and #42 on the UK chart, making it the first of his albums to chart in the UK. gave The Hermit of Mink Hollow a 4 1/2 star review:

Over the course of 1977, Todd Rundgren moved Utopia toward a more pop-oriented direction, winding up with the slick mainstream arena rock of Oops! Wrong Planet. With that in mind, it makes sense that The Hermit of Mink Hollow — his first full-fledged solo album since Initiation, if you discount the half-cover/half-original Faithful — finds Rundgren in his pop craftsman persona. The difference is, he’s heartbroken. His relationship with Bebe Buell collapsed during 1977 and it’s clear that the separation has pained him, since pain and melancholy underpin the album, whether it’s on ballads (“Can We Still Be Friends”) or on apparently joyous revelries, like “All the Children Sing.” … Still, the reason The Hermit of Mink Hollow is such a milestone in Rundgren’s career is because it’s a small album, filled with details, and easily the most emotional record he made.
