Product Description

The latest addition to the acclaimed & award winning Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of two legendary albums from Rush. 2112 was the album that saw Rush break through to major chart success, going to No.1 in their native Canada and Top 75 in the USA where it would eventually be certified triple platinum. Moving Pictures opened them to a mass audience for the first time and remains the biggest selling album of their career. It also went to No.1 in Canada and went quadruple platinum there whilst hitting No.3 in both the UK and USA. Rush members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart talk us through the making of the albums, together with original producer Terry Brown via interviews, demonstrations, archive videos and use of the original multi-track tapes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, wonderful extras 28 Sep 2010
By Rambleast Reviews TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Ah. I've been waiting all year for this. That's right, the excellent Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage, comprehensive though it is, was not enough documentation of this excellent and honestly, truly peerless band for one year.

I've seen a few of the Classic Albums films before (now well dated by the inclusion of the Men In Black poster in the record store glimpsed the opening credits) and enjoyed them for the most part, though owing to their compilation for broadcast they are bound not to be too specific. Yes, this series of documentaries has its niche audience, but too much information on one particular guitar solo or synthesizer pattern and common curiosity might begin to wane. So, while the main 2112/ Moving Pictures piece is pleasingly succinct in its discussion of those albums, their creation and their impact, the hour's worth of extras is what the real Rush fans are looking for.

Herein you'll discover detailed analysis of certain tracks (I'm sure you can guess which ones), an informative discussion of influences, a particularly enjoyable improvisation from World's Greatest Drummer Neil Peart (doubly enjoyable as it bears no resemblance to his sublime but rarely altered touring drum solo) and each of the band members discussing warmly why they're so fond of each other, and what's kept Rush going into its fourth decade.

The only gripe I have with this disc is that the new studio performances are overdubbed with the original masters, which (forgive my churlishness) seems utterly pointless, like seeing rock's best musicians soullessly miming on TOTP.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you gotta have it all... 3 Nov 2010
then you should buy this item, but if you already own the documentary Beyond the lighted stage there really isn't any need to buy this. Most of the story about the albums are already there + it's a bloody great documentary. But I enjoyed this one as well but felt a little geekish. But hey; I can live with that. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic Rush DVD 28 Sep 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the classic albums series. The problem with the early ones was that the picks were very obvious, covering some of the biggest albums of all time ("Dark side of the moon", "Rumours", "Electric Ladyland" etc.). Finally we're starting to get some less obvious, but just as worthy, releases. And, even better, this DVD covers TWO albums. That has a flipside as well, as the programme is the same length as the others that feature one. There are plenty of bonus features that go into more detail about some of the stuff that is skipped over in the main portion. It's great to hear the master tapes of these albums mixed down to bare bones instruments (by original producer Terry Brown) and see Geddy, Alex and Neil demonstrating how the parts were played and how the songs were conceived. Plenty of live footage as well, although not much previously unseen (understandable as they have released plenty of archive stuff recently). The only problem I have with any of these DVDs is that they never cover the whole album and leave out songs as if they didn't exist. No mention of any of the songs on side two of "Moving pictures". Mustn't grumble, though. Keep 'em coming!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition but nothing new... 13 Oct 2010
Well, first you're a Rush fan to begin with if you are reading these lines. The story of the band has already been told in the excellent "Beyond The Lighted Stage" and it is too bad that this "Classic Albums" edition reveals not a whole lot of new details. The introduction of the events leading to 2112 is way to long, reiterating a lot of what has been said in BTLS with basically the same interveiw partners (sorry, I can't stand to watch Taylor Hawking anymore...). Again too bad since I thoroughly enjoyed the Joshua Tree classic albums DVD by U2.... (that focuses a lot more on the music and the recording/mixing). Still the multi-camera rendition of YYZ alone (bonus feature) is worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must 30 Sep 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an absolute must for RUSH fans but also for rock fans in general. Three men who love their band and are three of the best musicians in the world. The extras are as interesting as the main feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rush for Everything Rush 8 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Rush - Fantastic, nothing more to say. Have them all and love them all, at least until Geddy got his new teeth. Musically they continue to amaze and get better and better.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2112 & Moving Pics DVD Review 1 Feb 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD follows on well from the bands film "Beyond the lighted Stage". All three band members go into what inspired them and how they recorded the two albums. Disappointing though is that there is no mention on 2112 of the tracks "Lessons" and "Something for Nothing" and from Moving Pictures "The Camera Eye", "Witch Hunt" and "Vital Signs". Still enjoyed watching the DVD.
This DVD does affirm what I know already; RUSH are the best band on the planet!!
