Umm yeah... a K-Tel ready version.

 

From the You Tube poster...

 

One of the worst edits ever. Only uploaded for historical interest. The retail 45 uses this edit too, unlike the Subdivisions 45 I have which uses the full album version. This 45 is NOT worth having. Only picked it up because I saw it at a reasonable price. Just get the Permanent Waves LP with the full version instead.

 

 

I actually love finding artifacts like these on YT.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Oh WOW.  Major buzzkill at the end.

 

I can almost hear the DJ jump in—"And that was Rush with their latest single, The Spirit of the Radio…"

I've never played mine - really bad fade out. Come to think of it, I've never played the 2:55 edit of Finding My Way, I'll have to dig it out and give it a spin.

It was a beautiful song

But it ran too long

If you’re gonna have a hit

You gotta make it fit

So they cut it down to 3:05

From that 8-track, I give you Spaceship Superstar.

 

He's got a "solar powered laser beam guitar," by the way.

Jesus H Fucking Christ :o - I'd completely forgotten about the existence of that. In the early 80's one of my flatmates at University had the album that was on. I've not heard it since about 1981 (thankfully).

Haha. K-Tel 8-tracks do have their buried treasures. lol.

 

I still can't believe Rush shared an album with Ronnie Milsap and The Floaters.

It really redeems itself right at the end though when he yells in his best soaring Manilow, "IT'S TOO SAD TO WRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Is it even more cheesy that someone from Japan posted it? lol.

Was just listening to that yesterday in the car. My super duper fantastic "Canadian Compilation" cd with all the greats Prism, Trooper, Streetheart, Loverboy, Burton Cummings, Zon, Anvil, April Wine, FM, BTO,  oh I could go on and on.

^^^ Ok that makes you about a Level 8 Canadian. If you were more polite you'd be a Level 10.

I remember the single version.  Heard it played on WABC-AM top-40 radio station in New York and couldn't believe it.  I did have a sick feeling in my stomach though because I always cherished having non-mainstream bands as my favorites and felt that commercial popularity was the kiss of death.  Their time on AM radio was short-lived thankfully and they became popular within the FM framework.
