This guy has posted a bunch (if not all, haven't checked) of ASOH with the laser disc version of the audio. Makes you realize just how much Rush fans have been shit upon by the whole loudness war problem....

That Anthem logo intro with the little musical bit is pretty cool. Looks in the style of a film company's logo. 


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

Let's play this song as fast as we can to get through it so we can jam on D, A and G for a couple of minutes.  Oh, and I'll play it on my shitty sounding electronic kit for no other reason than I need to justify why the hell we lug it around from gig to gig...

 

By far the most souless version of this song.  Listen to ESL and put this away.

Still the best version is the one on Different Stages.  And the video that goes with it, is also the best version.  :D :D

Nothing beats CTTH from ESL. When Neils drums\Bells sounded the best. Ged and Alex are using meaty guitars (not the thin sounding guitars of the mid to late 80's and beyond). And yes, that is such a cheezy jam at the end.

The jam part basically answers the most musical of fan's needs for improvisation, something that was sorely lacking at that time at Rush concerts.  I prefer the ESL version as well, because it just has more bite and does the song more justice.

I still don't get what sound they were going for during this era (ASOH), rubber band bass sound and solid state dull guitar tone...

Instrument wise, by this time, the only thing they had onstage which had any resemblance to "classic" RUSH was Neil's drums and Geddy and Alex were still using a set of Taurus pedals. Otherwise, it was "twangy" thin sounding RUSH.

 

I feel that RUSH were always moving too fast forward and never stopped to listen to where they came from.

They were just going for something new and different.  Rush always considered themselves "progressive" in the sense that their sound changes over time, incorporating new instruments and styles and ideas.  Now in hindsight, they might not like the sound of the bass and guitar either (I sure didn't) but at the time they were probably excited about trying new instruments and sounds.  This is what has always kept them interested and motivated, rather than remaining locked into a certain sound and style like AC/DC for example.
