Product Description

Product Description

Limited edition bonus DVD includes videos for "Closer to the Heart", "Tom Sawyer", "Subdivisions", "The Big Money" and "Mystic Rhythms". It also includes complete lyrics to every song found on the CD.

Though not their first-ever career survey, Rush's Spirit of Radio compilation is an ideal point of entry for newbie fans or anyone who consistently likes Rush songs most often heard on the radio. While 1990's Chronicles set was more encompassing--including tracks beyond Spirit of Radio's 1987 cut-off point--the Canadian prog-rock trio's benchmark moments are represented among these 16 songs. Hence the appearance of "Closer to the Heart", "Tom Sawyer", "New World Man", "Time Stand Still", "Fly By Night", "Subdivisions" and the title track. The accompanying limited edition DVD, meanwhile, features lyrics to every song on the compilation--as precious as the holy grail to hardcore fans--plus four live tracks taken from the Chronicles video ("Closer to the Heart", "Tom Sawyer", "Subdivisions" and "Big Money") and a clip of "Mystic Rhythms". --Kim Hughes

I have followed Rush since 1978 and although I still buy their albums today, their early work is still the best.
This is an ok compilation of early work but for me has a few glaring omissions.
Nothing from the third album "Caress of Steel" where "Bastille Day" is a must and "Anthem" should have replaced "Fly By Night".
Either of the above could have replaced "Force Ten" that is always included on their complitations and is by far the weakest track here.
Only one track each from "A Farewell to Kings" and "Hemispheres" though I suppose the extended length of many of the other tracks on these albums could explain this. But we get three tracks from "Moving Pictures".
Anyway enough of the complaining. Rush in the seventies and eighties were far and away the best group around and if you are looking to get into their early work this would be a great place to start. It shows a group that, in 15 or so years, had totally changed it's sound and still had the support of millions fans.
The DVD is a nice touch and shows how the band's image changed over the years.
It says something that I own all the tracks, and most of the videos but I still bought it!
