They might not have had to go far. I'm not speaking factually, but I think Ian recorded that show. He may well have had the originals.

 

That's right! What's his name Ian Grady? Or didn't that Skip Gildersleeve provide some board tapes too?

There must be thousands of copies of Rush boots out there so that doesn’t seem likely. They could just download them from Dimeadozen, Traders Den or other sites.


There’s some naive nonsense about this here where Andy Curran who is responsible for compiling the anniversary editions talks utter shite such as “In terms of a choice of rarities, this was a recording where if you searched diligently you might have been able to find bits and pieces of it online from people who had recorded it.“

Alternatively you could just go on to the Amazon UK site and buy a CD of the radio broadcast (it’s also on the German site). 😂

Well this is news to me

 

We worked closely with the Pink Pop Festival and a radio station and television station in the Netherlands that broadcasted it and got the full show. Which was really cool, because Elvis Costello was on the bill, and so were The Police – a very eclectic lineup in 1979,” he explained.

 

so does this mean an upgrade in sq and more material? Because the track listing posted does not suggest that.

well that's where I get confused - the track listing posted is not the full set but Curran's statement says otherwise and even suggests source tapes may have been used. Wishful thinking but maybe?  :shrug:

When he says “the full show”, going by the reference to Elvis Costello and The Police in the following sentence, perhaps he means that the radio and TV stations recorded all the bands. The reference to the other acts makes no sense otherwise.

Hell I saw Elvis and the Police at the Hollywood Bowl in 2007- not that diverse a bill!

The absurdity of these radio broadcasts being repackaged and sold on Amazon, is out of control. This may be the worst one yet, from the hilarious art work to the dog's breakfast of a track listing

 

can't c&p the link but the title is "Rush Live, Radio Broadcast" hilariously awful

I don’t know about in your part of the world but here in the UK most of those FM broadcast releases are being streamed on Amazon Music.

Yeah that's the one Slim! Looks like Lifeson got into Rick Neilson's guitar stash and Geddy raided Chris Squire's collection

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but anyone know if it's possible to get my hands on just the blu-ray disc without buying the whole deluxe edition?

Was browsing through Amazon just now and came across the following review of the Anniversary Edition:

 

Whats the deal at 4:28?

 

16 November 2018
Format: Audio CD


Great overall remaster but the edit at 4:28 sounds like it was done by a 3 year old. How do you get it

THAT wrong? Engineers these days, eh? Bring back Terry Brown. 3 stars nonetheless. Great album.

 

 

Anyone got an insight into the 4:28 moment? I assume something specific to the recent remaster.

There is a lengthy pause before the Dionysus section begins. Not super noticeable, but you can hear the end of the first section fade and then dead silence for a second. It actually sounds pretty dramatic. Reviewer is probably a cunt.

I didn't notice this to be different from the way it was intended to sound on vinyl, minus the lead in sort of echo you get on vinyl.  On more modern CD versions it seemed like a shorter rest.
