Regular price $34.00
In 2014 UMe/Mercury reissued Rush’s self-titled debut on heavy-weight vinyl in celebration of the album’s 40th anniversary. Now in 2015, let the Rush 40 celebration continue with '12 Months of Rush' reissues – in chronological order - starting with 1975's Fly By Night on LP.
During the '12 Months of Rush' campaign all 14 of the band's Mercury albums will be remastered on 180-gram heavy-weight vinyl at legendary Abbey Road, all from original analogue masters. All LPs will also include a digital download code for a 320kbps MP4 vinyl ripped Digital Audio album download.
Rush's seventh studio album, Permanent Waves, was released on New Years Day 1980, and recorded at Le Studio in Quebec, becoming the first U.S. album to go Top Five, peaking at #4 on the Billboard charts. The platinum certified effort marked a transition from the band’s long, conceptual pieces into a more accessible, radio-friendly style as heard on such heavily played hits as “The Spirit of Radio” and “Freewill.”
"This era seems to be pushing New Wave, and this Wave, and that Wave. The material we're doing is just Permanent Wave-it's just music. It's the love of music and how, with everything new, it's just a continuation, like a wave coming back in from the ocean." - Alex Lifesson, Guitar Player (June 1980)
