TOP 500 REVIEWERon 12 March 2014
Well this brings back memories,my ist Rush gig would be 4 months later,at the Glasgow Apollo,so this recording rejuvenates the memory of that gig,its a superb release,sound quality excellent,for a recording more than 3 decades ago,its not the full gig but its faithful to the original radio broadcast(i had a cassette of many moons ago).

How can you go wrong when it has,2112/By Tor & The Snow Dog/Xanadu and disc closer La Villa Strangiata ?,throw in a excellent medley,superb drum solo and a couple of embryonic versions of 'Spirit of the Radio' and 'Natural Science' not forgetting a tight little 'Beneath,Between,Behind.

As i said sound quality is really good, marvel at Alex and Geddy's playing,revel in Neil's drumming,rolling round the kit like there's no tomorrow and smile at Geddy's helium filled yelps and screams as he tries to get all the words in..

This is a value for money release,no doubt it wont be official,but like a slew of other recent radio releases,it will be a copyright issue,its up to you if you wish to buy,hopefully Rush and all these other bands,will get there finger out and start issuing archive live releases,we know they have them.

There are three versions of this concert.The set material is the same but recorded on three different nights at the same venue.This one is quite good and has good artwork to accompany it.However it is another case of a company cashing in on the Rush popularity by releasing a bootleg that I doubt Rush Have not approved.Despite that it is worth listening to.

The drumming on this album makes my hair on the back of my neck stand up, by far this album makes me realise the world class of this group, I would go as far as saying that Neil Peart is the number one drummer in the world and has been for some time, and don't forget these are live recordings..

Good Album. A little expensive for old material but if you are a Rush Fan, that doesn't matter!

Kind of a "Exit...Stage Left" without the overdubs, this is a truly remarkable Rush live experience, even better if listened at maximum volume. I've been waiting a decade for an official release of this recording. The original promo SPE-003 release from Anthem has the same tracklist but it's unreachable, being so rare and expensive - last time I saw it on eBay it sold for $200+. This release do not disappoint, very clean and balanced pressing, sounds even better than the remastered bootleg version. If you're a Rush fan get yours while you can.

This is a must for Rush fans,if ever we need reminded why we love this great Canadian trio this album is one off many reasons. It takes me back to why i came a Rush fan,the only down part off this recording is that its not the full concert which means the likes of Hemispheres is missing so that's why iv giving it four stars not five, but its good to here the likes of Spirit of Radio how it sounded in its first tour,this is a great cd.

Super show from the PW Tour, and on heavy grey vinyl - what's not to like?
