A Cappella is a 1985 album by Todd Rundgren. The album is one of Rundgren's most unusual in that every sound is the product of the artist's voice. This approach to music making was later explored by artists such as Mike Patton and Björk.

Rundgren, who was already at odds with the label and had taken his Utopia elsewhere, had to struggle to get the label to release the record, and it didn't hit the shelves officially until Warner stepped in and negotiated him out of the contract. Perhaps Bearsville didn't want to release A Cappella because they perceived it to be too weird, too bizarre to cross over into the mainstream, which is true. However, that thread of logic ignores the fact that ever since 1973, Rundgren had positioned himself as a cult artist.

A Cappella is a 1985 album by Todd Rundgren. But with Bearsville's slimming artist roster and lack of successful artists, Bearsville did not want to risk releasing an album that the label felt was too experimental and would not sell, so

A cappella (Italian for "in the manner of the chapel") music is specifically group or solo singing without instrumental accompaniment, or a piece intended to be performed in this way. It contrasts with cantata, which is accompanied singing. The term "a cappella" was originally intended to differentiate between Renaissance polyphony and Baroque concertato style

According to wikipedia, a Test pressing was released and bootlegged under the title "Runt A Cappella" It was a poor sounding transfer but was probably the deciding factor for Warner Bros to release the album since bootleggers were profiting from it.Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Cappella_%28Todd_Rundgren_album%29Discogs link "Runt - A Cappella": http://www.discogs.com/release/4002684
