Rush

Rush, the Canadian power trio that’s been going at it for over four decades now and is celebrating a milestone this year with the 40th Anniversary of their self-titled debut album, is releasing a 10 DVD/6 Blu-ray set of live performances, which span those 40 years, from a high school concert with the original drummer John Rutsey, right up to their current global domination on the stage.

The box set, entitled R40 (which is a continuum of their successful R30 tour and DVD sets a decade ago), will be released on November 11, 2014 and spans the entire Rush timeline, and there are more than a couple of aces in the hole.

Check out the trailer for R40 and more details here below.

Rush

If you’d like a physical copy of Spirit Of Radio: Greatest Hits, the CD is available for $8.49 and is an “AutoRip,” which means it includes a free MP3 version of the album that you can access immediately.

This hits album, which was released 11 years ago today on February 11, 2003, contains 16 classic songs from Rush, which is my favorite band in the world, so I can go on and on about how every song in this collection is amazing and worth having, but allow me to name just a few: there’s the hits – “Tom Sawyer,” “The Spirit Of Radio,” and “Limelight,” as well as “Working Man,” “Subdivisions,” and “Fly By Night.”

Rush To Release 40th-Anniversary Edition Of Self-Titled Debut Album

Rush (self-titled)

Canadian rock trio Rush are set to release a 40th anniversary edition of their self-titled debut album this year, according to The Globe And Mail. The band is said to be “an example of active partners in the [reissuing] process,” according to the article, who cites Ivar Hamilton, VP of catalogue marketing for Universal Music Canada. No other details about the release were revealed.

The eponymous LP, released on March 1, 1974 through Moon Records, is best known not for what’s on it, but rather what’s not on it — the masterful drumming and philosophical lyrics of the great Neil Peart, who didn’t join the band until Rush’s second album, 1975’s Fly By Night. Instead, the 8-song Rush features original member John Rutsey on drums and blues-rock tunes with sex and rock-n-roll-themed lyrics by singer/bassist Geddy Lee.

Rush

Vapor Trails, the 2002 record by long-standing Canadian prog rock trio Rush, has been given a facelift treatment, as a remixed version gets released this week on CD* and MP3, and is streaming online for free for a limited time.

The record, the band’s first in six years at that point, sported “mixes that were loud and brash, according to bass player/singer Geddy Lee, and a mastering job that was “harsh and distorted,” detriments that Lee had realized not too long after the album was originally released. He summed up his feelings about the record when he stated that although he felt Vapor Trails was an “imperfect piece of work that got out there,” he still believes that the songs were very strong and a huge catalyst to a welcoming audience that made the album and the following tour become rousing successes for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band.
