I’m not a fan of the live performance at all. They’re pretty sloppy compared to how tight they were just three years later.

 

The opposite with me - love it, like having an "All The World's A Stage Vol. 2" That crazy fill in Lakeside Park sounds a bit awkward but it's exactly that kind of thing that initially grabbed me about NP's playing.

Yeah that makes sense. I enjoy it for that too. It’s a killer document, don’t get me wrong. I just don’t prefer this era.

There is chemistry missing in this performance. You hear ATWAS and they are locked in. Something happened in 77 that fucked with them for a year or so. I blame NP.

Hey, remember way back when in the '90s when they said they filmed a T4E show but couldn't release it due to syncing issues? Is this that show?

 

 

The moment when they transition into "Discovery" was magical.  After hearing Overture and Temples so many times since my first Rush show (Signals tour), hearing those first few notes of Discovery still gives me chills.

Nice to see that. I bought a ticket to see them in Pittsburgh in the same month, June 11th 1997. The twentieth anniversary of my first Rush gig. The ticket arrived, still have it somewhere. I never got round to sorting out the travel arrangements and didn't go.

 

I regret that now.

I agree with this because I saw them twice in February '78 and was actually a bit disappointed - there was something perfunctory about those performances, a certain energy and engagement missing. By contrast the Tour Of The Hemispheres a year later, same venue, was enthralling.

Apparently 40 days before those tragic events started. Nice to see Neil as Neil.

Anyone else have any commentary on the live set from this package?  I haven't picked it up yet.  Somehow I just know the few cover songs are going to be super-lame.  Why do bands even bother covering Rush?  No way you're ever going to improve on the originals.  It seems really lame to include cover songs from other bands in this package.

Might do with a better singer than Geddy.

I liked the cover songs- especially Grohls and AiCs covers.

That guy who did Madrigal too.

I much prefer this one to the original, I must say.
