Jean 1 is a Northern Soul reworking of 5.30 Plane by The Supremes, sung
by Jean Terrell and taken from the 1972 LP The Supremes Produced And
Arranged By Jimmy Webb. The version here was lifted from a scratchy
seven-inch recorded onto a hissy C60.
Todd features Todd Rundgren performing The Ballad (Denny And Jean). The
vocal was taken from a live version of the song recorded at the Fox
Theater, California, in 1971. During this version, Rundgren forgets
