Yeah, that guy. I always forget him for some reason

 

It's kind of like "the Other Guy" from the three tenors

Some cool re-imaginings of Rush album covers collected on the final page of a long TRF thread from 2012.

 

http://www.therushfo...s/page__st__180

 

 

This one was left off the final page for some reason.

Oh and these bits of inspired cleverness were left off too...

Found on Power Windows: A Tribute to Rush:

 

From a Nov. 2012 Colbert Report:

 
On last night's episode of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, Colbert tells of a 24 year old Canadian "Grinch" who was arrested for harassing children and telling them Santa Claus wasn't real.  (Click here for a video clip).  Colbert goes on to say that due to time constraints there is no Santa Claus in Canada, but that celebrities like Rush pick up the slack for him:
 
"...but don't worry Canadian kids, you still have a Santa - it's just a Canadian Santa. Every year I believe it rotates to a different Canadian celebrity. Last year it was Nelly Furtado Claus, this year it's Rush. So that jing-jing-jingle you hear on the roof is just Neil Peart (pronounced "Pert") breaking into a 45-minute high hat solo."

Signals World Premier
 
According to the YouTuber who posted this video, it's from an "Unknown FM Broadcast from September 1982.". I feel like I have a better understanding of the drastic change between MP and Signals after listening to this.
 
The between song interview sections are at 0:00, 7:08, 14:00, 21:00, 28:20, 35:08, 41:22, and 48:20.

I am loving this. The Chemistry story is pretty interesting.

As a teenager I'd listen to Signals when I cut lawns. Also, I vividly remembering playing the record on my parents' stereo at home during a boring Summer day. - the album has always spoken "the suburbs" to me. To find that they actually recorded some of Alex's parts outside - like his solo on Chemistry - just makes so much sense.

 

It is the perfect ode to the "emotionally and physically displaced teen suburbanite". Yet, I can smell the grass, and the backyard, and visualize myself walking through the woods as a kid, wet swim trunks, sounds of talking in the kitchen (I want to go back!) - as I write this, so many memories are popping into my head.

Also - Neil references Geddy's pal Oscar. The same guy Geddy brought up at the rock hall ceremony last week. And Oscar programmed the drum part for the Weapon!

I think it's interesting that they were all writing on their own at the time and brought these apparently disparate ideas into the Signals project and tried to make a cohesive album out of them. I think that might be where the album's eclectic quality comes from.

The album had a similar effect on me. I graduated from my small town high school in '82 and songs like The Analog Kid and Subdivisions really hit home for me. I was excited for the future and future possibilities. That youthful excitement is pretty precious and relatively short-lived but memories of it, when something triggers them, can be pretty exhilarating. Neil talks about the post-adolescent period where far away places seem more interesting and larger than life than where you're from. I had those feelings in spades.

It's a bit confounding to think they'd pushed out Broon after this, when he essentially captured that angsty, restless summertime vibe ( and that it had already spoken to me in that sense even before I knew that's what they were trying to capture).

 

And the interviewer even expresses the same sentiment: "New World Man is ABOUT me. Not some kid in the far off future of 2112…"

 

Fucking love this album.

I think he still had great work to do with Rush even if he wasn't into their new direction. Something about the combination of those 4 guys really produced a lot of magic. It's really a shame. I considered him to have been nearly a fourth member of the band, at least in the studio.

 

Yes, Signals was less conceptual and abstract than previous albums. It was more in touch with human emotion.

Whoever the interviewer is, he also did one of these for Moving Pictures.  I had both of them on tape when I was a teenager.
