Rush

 

Celebrating 40 years of Rush‚Permanent Waves, the Super Deluxe Edition will feature two CDs, 3 LPs, live bonus tracks, and a twenty-page booklet filled with reimagined artwork by original album designer Hugh Syme and unreleased photos from the band‚ archive all housed in a slipcase. LPs two and three are loaded with unreleased bonus live tracks from three stops on the Permanent Waves World Tour 1980: Manchester Apollo, Manchester, England; Hammersmith Odeon, London, England; and Kiel Auditorium, St. Louis, Missouri, all newly mixed by the band‚ longtime producer Terry Brown.

Permanent Waves is the band‚ first departure from in-depth, ten-minute plus conceptual song crafting and is deemed as a poignant moment they reinvented themselves and their sound. Rush has taken it (the conceptual album) to its logical limit and it, time to do something else, remarked Geddy Lee. To further reinvent themselves, the band opted to record at Le Studio in Quebec which has been highly credited in the evolution of the Rush sound and would soon become their home away from home for future albums to come. Giving birth to two of the band‚ most important songs in their stable, The Spirit Of Radio‚ along with Freewill offered fans a long overdue experience: regular radio play.
