rush clunkers? not sure they have ever made a disc that would be considered a clunker,certainly there have been a few that i dont care for,such as PRESTO(boring IMHO) andd VAPOR TRAILS(plain average)

re 2112 am i the only one that prefers side 2? side 1 on the original disc too long and dare i say it a tad boring,the live version on ATWAS is far better,and the truncated version performed on R30 tour was the business,just a thought.

Attention All Planets Of The Solar Federation!

Rumours of a Rush box set with out- takes and unreleased material are going round. About time too (but we don't need more live stuff boys)

New album and I reckon a European tour in 2011....

I might go for 1968's The Circle Game, or 1970's Wrong End of the Rainbow.

Mr. B
Just got a cracking boot of Rush Live Chicago 1-3-81 and the track listing is amazing...could be mixing desk recording.
Must find a few more...

Hello M. E.

i assume the track listing is similar to the Apollo gig? We definitely need a box set,i would love some archive live,Glasgow obviously,not sure there are many studio outakes,lying around,although they would be most welcome.

Hi M.B
What I have heard from Rolling stone and other websites is a potential box set of outtakes, unreleased versions and tracks left off albums. I do not think it is live stuff but then I suppose we already have loads of Rush live.

Come on Mercury, release it quickly.

Rush are touring again and are playing Moving Pictures in its entirety. Dublin price for tickets is outside my comfort zone :-( :::: Approx £70 a go!

Smitty, £70 seems a bit steep.my Glasgow ticket cost £55 inc booking,although i do believe some pre sale tickets cost £80( must be seat on stage with the band !!!!

Now if they play MP in its entirety excellent , if they could throw in 'Overture/Temples/Finale with By tor/Xanadu and La Villa... i could die a happy man.

Wow, I managed to get 5th row at the O2 for next May for my son and me
(proud Dad, he loves Rush...my job is done)

Just need the new album and possible box set now....

Exit Stage Left because it mainly covers what I think was probably their best period of music - classics such as Hemispheres, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures, and because Live Albums are often the best way to really appreciate a band, taking away some of the sterility of excessive studio production.

Mind you, I have all their albums - they've never made a bad one.

I can't believe the impact Rush had, musically, on my life from '75 onwards. The same as most Rush fans, I have them all, however, the absolute magic wavererd slightly after Moving Pictures. From then on there were class tracks on certain albums, but also a few safe offerings.
I'm 50 next year and I'm sure those of you who found Rush later will disagree; it makes no diffference. We all would agree that, asa live offering, theyare still up there with the best.
To my favourite album? Very tough. Kings, Hemisphere's, Permanent Waves or Moving Pictures; not in order. It changes constantly.
Worst album: Vapour Trails.

Fave studio album & song changes occaisionally.

Favourite studio album - 2112

Favourite song - Earthshine (studio version)

Favourite live album - Different Stages

Worst I have heard so far has got to be Rush in Rio, it sounds worse than bootlegs I have of the band, which is saying something when you consider the potential that the properly recorded and "mixed" gig could have had. Great setlist though.

G'day Smitty - agree with you on Rio. Can you imagine how good Rio would've been with it's awesome setlist if it had been recorded as well as the R-30 album was? R-30 was great but who needs those lame cover versions on there?

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Dec 2010, 20:43:57 GMT
Must check out R-30! Thanks, Puffany :-)

Mr. David says:
Mine's gotta be MOVING PICTURES but I also like, COUNTERPARTS, POWER WINDOWS and PERMANENT WAVES although every Rush album has something to recommend on it. Can't wait for the UK shows next year

Vambo says:
Mines got to be Hemispheres or 2112 or A Farewell To Kings.

I got tickets for 2011 too

Mad Earwig says:
Got to agree with you guys, I bought the Rush in Rio CD set as I enjoyed the DVD so much but the sound quality is appalling and I was surprised at the quality of the mix.
Guess it may be remastered at a later date for us to go buy again...
