About Alchemy

Alchemy is the debut solo album of Television guitarist, Richard Lloyd. It was released in 1979, one year after the breakup of Television and the release of their second album, Adventure. Trouser Press called it "a gem of a solo album." Its title track was a minor New York FM radio hit. Lloyd's backing band on the album featured a number of notable New York musicians, including guitarist James Mastro (later of the Bongos), Television bassist Fred Smith and drummer Vinny DeNunzio, formerly of the Feelies. Producer Michael Young later added guitar and synthesizer overdubs to some tracks, which Lloyd stated that he strenuously opposed at the time.
