I wouldn't have thought. This is a shock for me. I'm having a hard time imagining these songs with Geddy's vocals. Levertheness, I'll check it out.

What makes you think it will be mastered any better than Vapor Trails;)

Hope does spring eternal, though.

All that said, I am a bit peeved with those hosers. Every city in the Southwest USA BUT mine:angry:

Oh well, they did play here during the VT tour, and it was a great show.

So that is what 'thread crapping' looks like. Extremely constructive:thumbsdown:

I would be interested in hearing this, although I'm not a huge fan of most 60s music. My wife and I have our tickets to see Rush this summer. All of those years without a single tour, and now we get to see Rush twice in 2 years :D

Thanks for the info. I haven't visited the official site in a while. I am so stoked though I am going to see them on May 28th!

Someone at Hoffman's site posted that there is a 120 second sample of Summertime Blues at www.rush.com

I checked it out. Pretty cool if you are predisposed to liking Rush (which I am!). Looking forward to hearing the rest even if they AREN'T coming to my town.

Saw them live tonight, and the covers were awesome. I was skeptical about the covers too, but they blew me away. I loved hearing my favorite band, Rush play a cover of my second favorite band, The Who.

Normally I would count down the days till ANY new Rush title. I will wait on purchasing this title. If Rush has such a blatant disregard for sound quality (Vapor Trails) I won't purchase.
By the way, I own every Rush cd made. They are one of my favorites. Despite being a great album, Vapor Trails really turned me off on Rush, even with the incredible show they put on last year.

Quite amazing really. Thanks for passing that info along. I can not imagine Rush doing anything other than their own stuff. This will be interesting.

Yes-Bought it yesterday. I thought it might be a bit of an embarrassment but it is really quite good, very good. The Who covers are good and Crossroads is worth the price of the EP alone.
And no, there are no bombastic drum fills in "for what its worth".

The covers seem to be going over very well on the new tour. I didn't think I would like Crossroads in the oncore, but they do a great version of it and it fits well there.

Heart full of Soul works very well as well. It's acoustic and then Neal kicks in with some very tasteful drumming.

Go see Rush!

OK, Disclaimer. I am an unabashed Rush fan, so take the rest of this post with a huge grain of salt.

THIS F*CKIN ALBUM ROCKS!

OK, any questions?

Seriously, this is a very well done collection of songs, and the recording quality, while somewhat variable on a few tracks, is quite good as well. While Summertime Blues, The Seeker, and Shapes of Things get a bit raucous (so did the orginals, right?) cuts like Mr. Soul and For Whats Its Worth are very, very well done.

Great to hear Alex playing through what is either a vintage Fuzzface, or a damn good clone. There is some very cool noodling here folks. On Heart Full of Soul, he whips out an Octavia for some very tasty lead lines, and on Mr. Soul, you get some very nice twelve string licks, ala The Roger Maguin (SP?).

I picked it up at lunch, ran home, and gave it a complete run through. Sitting on the couch, with the volume on 11, you would be forgiven if you thought I was auditioning for the next Beavis and Butthead episode.

$8 very, very well spent, and so refreshingly honest in an age of derivative bands that continue to feed their audience with rip-off after rip-off of what came before.

While I have yet to pick this up (will be doing so later today)but I can second what was said earlier about the live versions. They were GREAT. They just all out jammed on Crossroads. Heck they jammed out on all the covers they played (Seeker, Heart Full of Soul, Crossroads and Summertime Blues). The covers and finally hearing Between the Wheels live made it a really great night!
