Given the trend, we should expect a Hemispheres 40th anniversary release next year.

 

All I personally care about is if they include a live show.

 

AFTK was an obvious excuse to release the entire Hammersmith Odeon show. So they did that, Broon remixed it, and we all say thank you. With the treble boosted a bit, it sounds great.

 

But are they going to have any interest in tracking down another live show from the Hemispheres tours?

 

I'm not so sure they are going to bother. I think they may say, ehh, most of the material is from 2112 and AFTK anyways.

 

I worry they will just include stuff we already have:

 

That would be a disappointment.

 

To me, Hemispheres is huge. It is Geddy's 4th fav album. They went out of their way to elaborate on Hemispheres on the documentary. 
 
We want something new -- ideally!

 

Most bootleg connoisseurs know that Rush recorded a LOT of shows in late 1978 and into 1979. I honestly don't know how many (if any) were recorded multi-track.

 

I have a feeling they will not release a live show, unless some effort was put into recording it (i.e. multi-track recording). Maybe we will get lucky. I also think they may have lots of video footage from the studio. 

 

On a side note --- there are some great soundboard boots from this time, and we're damn lucky to have these honestly.

I've never heard or read any mention of multi-track recordings from the Hemispheres tour but we fans don't kn ow everything so it's possible. Maybe full video of the Pink Pop set exists although I think that was a truncated set. There are some brief video snippets of a soundcheck and show from a semisphere show in Hamilton but I have no idea how much exists. 

 

Perhaps they'll wait for the PeW 40th, that we know has multi-track live recordings

I couldn't entertain the idea of buying the AFTK one because I've never liked that record, but I simply couldn't not acquire a 40th anniversary Hemispheres product.

Great topic! This will be interesting, for sure. We're getting deepter into the 40th anniversary of what many consider the gold age of Rush, even Neil discounts all albums before PW. A 40th anniversary Signals is what I'm really anticipating, but  PW or MP should be great. MP, in particular, will most certainly get the same anticipation and treatment as the recent 30th anniversary of Master of Puppets, which is quite impressive.

Neal Pert don't know Jack Doo-Doo.

 

Hemispheres was the last great Rush album. It was all downhill after that.

Based on what, exactly? Your preference? Certainly not album sales (MP) or musicianship (PW).
