2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Rush’s debut album. This release features the band’s debut vinyl album re-mastered with impeccable care at Abbey Road studios by Sean Magee, who has been previously responsible for all recent Beatles vinyl re-masters. Kim Mitchell gives us a peek at what’s inside.
The Re-discovered vinyl is encased in a 12″ x 12″ high quality box. Pressed on audiophile 200 gram vinyl on the Direct Metal Mastering process, this is the highest quality vinyl currently available. This release contains a re-production of the original 1974 Canadian retail poster (only 500 were ever originally printed) and individual Moon Records publicity photos of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson & original drummer John Rutsey. This release also contains a first time ever Rush Family Tree, tracing origins of the band dating back to 1965 and a memorabilia collage of early Canadian and US gig ads, reviews, photos and the first ever Rush bio.
The Rush Rediscovered LP Box Set is available in stores now.
