Product Description

Product Description

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Rush s eponymous debut album in 1974. This superb collector s box set brings together live performances by Rush from each decade of their career. It includes Rush In Rio , R30 , Snakes & Arrows Live , Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland and Clockwork Angels Tour plus a bonus disc of previously unseen live material stretching from 1974 to 2013. Rush are renowned for the energy and excitement of their live concerts and this set brings together some of their finest performances. The 6 Blu-ray discs are contained in a stunning 56 page hardback book measuring 305mm x 225mm with the 6 discs contained in 5 additional rigid insert pages. The 56 pages of the book are filled with memorabilia and photographs documenting 40 years of Rush live in concert. This is the ultimate collection of Rush live performances, beautifully presented. Includes Rush In Rio on Blu-ray for the first time. Bonus disc contains the rarely performed full 7-part version of 2112 filmed in 1997 amidst over 3 hours of largely unseen material including previously unreleased tracks from 1974 performed with original drummer John Rutsey.

It s a shame for those like me who have bought all the DVDs included here when they came out. Shelling out 100 GBP+ for an extra set of pictures and some more live videos is a bit of a stretch. I love Rush and will continue to do so but this is a cash grabbing exercise, once again.

It's true nobody is being forced - obviously its one for the fans - the fans who already own all the contents apart from 1 disk ... and if they want the ONE DISK OF XTRAS THEY HAVE TO PAY £90 - so yes IT IS OFFENSIVE! a cynical marketing ploy - I am disappointed!

It may seem strange reviewing a release that isn't out yet, but I am 99% sure that Rush fans (and Rush fans are truly fans) will have all the content already from previous releases so we know what we're going to get. Sure there is a 'bonus' disc, but some of it is available on YouTube anyway. So how can they/their company justify nearly a hundred quid for something we already have but in a different box. I couldn't believe it so I checked around and it costs even more on other sites. Its obscene.

People have questioned U2's motives for giving away their recent album of new material. But we as fans of Rush must question their motives for such an exorbitantly priced repackage. Yes I know I don't have to buy it, but my question is who will?

Not I.

This is a shocking price for a release comprising mainly stuff that all RUSH fans already own! Obviously the only thing that anyone actually wants is the bonus disc (which obviously could have been released on its own). Even if this was 6 completely new Blu-ray discs of unreleased material the current price tag of £102.72 is just obscene. RUSH have unfortunately been on a complete money making trip for the last few years with concert tickets also priced at ridiculous levels while the band have come up with all sorts of excuses as to why they weren't playing any of the older classic tracks live. Over the last few years we've seen the same old stuff re-released in different packaging at extortionate prices to take advantage of the RUSH fanboy culture that seems to have grown under the current social media blanket. While the fanboys will be queing up to boast on FaceBook that they have bought this, this sort of unrealistic pricing is exactly why the majority of people will be waiting for the bonus disk to hit the torrent sites rather than paying an exorbitant sum for tarted up old material that they already own. RUSH will soon be able to challenge Iron Maiden for the most instances of the same old stuff re-released in different packaging!

The DVD has extra's that the Blu-rays do not

All told, R40 comprises 10 DVDs or 6 BD; there are, however, minor variations in the track listings of the Rush in Rio and R30 programs. Both formats are housed in a 52-page hardcover book illustrated with memorabilia and photographs documenting these past 40 years of Rush live in concert. This celebration of all things Rush is available on November 11 from Rounder Records and can be pre-ordered at the links below!

Well worth the price tag, even if you do already have the BR versions of 'S&A', 'TM', 'CA' & 'R30'. Note, the 'R30' disc IS the deluxe version, so DOES include the extras listed as being available only on the DVD box. Plus the 8 songs edited from the original.

The bonus disc is the one the fans want of course, plus 'RiR' on BR for the first time too (minus the tiny amount of extras on the DVD version).

Nice to have the whole of the 74 school show and its very interesting stuff. It's clear why Lifeson & Lee went on to create bigger and better things! I already had the Passaic 76 show, but not in this quality and without logos in the way. The real bonus is the 67 minutes from 1997 (plus another 20 minutes available to download with the included card, which includes Animate, Resist & Natural Science). Then the hilarious Hall of Fame induction & set. The end of show video from 2011 is here now too.

So 200 minutes of extras, RiR on BR and a nice shiny quality A4 sized book - all neat and tidy. What's not to like for only £87 here - and probably will drop soon anyway.

The slip around the box that holds the tracklist is also incorrect, it misses "Limelight" off the 'S&A' gig - its on the disc tho of course.

Incidentally, if you order it from directly from the boys in Canada, you get another bonus DVD ("R40 Completist") including the missing stuff (the download tracks from 97 - and extras from R30, which as I said, are already included here anyway!). But at full price (£120) and postage from Canada ($30), and the wait for it finally arrive, maybe battered and bruised and possibly with import charges, why wait?
