I just wanted to make a post recognizing the pure awesomeness from All the Worlds a Stage - By-Tor and the Snow dog, the incredible extended guitar solo section.

Can we say by now that ATWAS is arguably one of the greatest live albums ever made?

 

And if I'm not mistaken, Geddy hates it. lol.


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

I'll take this opportunity to point everyone in the direction of a newly unearthed live version of By-tor. 1975 03 10 North Hampton PA. I believe this now is the earliest circulated FULL version of By-tor. mp3 only but it's from the board. Merry Christmas to us all!

They played with real fire in those days, and the songs were all so good.

Way better than Exit in the sense that’s it’s acrually live (and live sounding). The guitar roars on atwas.

Wow -- AMAZING -- Thank you --- 1975 03 10 North Hampton PA recording, holy crap, I have definitely not come across this one before!!

 

And here I was thinking all the soundboard recordings have all already been unearthed!!

 

Geddy needs to get a new perspective, reminisce and dig into those archives before it's all lost forever -- seriously man.

It's not unusual for an artist to consider their earlier work to be inferior to what came later. In fact, sometimes the worst person to ask their opinion about their art is the artist themselves.

Agreed. A lot of people forget that Rush are not Rush fans. They don’t have an outsider’s perspective and like most artists will always say that their most recent work is there best work. Saying otherwise implies that the album they have just produced is shit (but please buy it anyway because you liked our good old stuff). Not going to happen.

So is that 75 boot worth risking a virus then?

There is no risk of a virus, it's clean.

That solo recorded back then is the very reason marijuana was invented. There is no greater way to enjoy music plus weed together than that.

I think the performance is really good - better than the Cleveland shows. Geddy's voice is in great form  but a bit more restrained than those from the WMMS broadcasts. Alex solo in Bad Boy is a lot longer and different sounding in parts - like he's channeling Glen Buxton. This could easily become my favorite out of the 5 broadcasts. (3 Cleveland shows and the WQIV New York show - a personal fave).

 

Hopefully a lossless version surfaces but I ain't complainin'.

I've always thought of that solo as being a sort of illegitimate child of the Pagey violin bow section of Dazed and Confused, and for me By-Tor is the one Rush song above all others that seems to have aged badly.

 

Fantastic to have another live version of Best I Can on that recording, though.

Just to correct the record - it looks like the correct date is 1975 03 11. Apparently the original date of the 10th got washed out due to transportation problems (truck broke down). So they played the next day.

I've downloaded quite a few boots from Guitars101 with no issues. Some pretty cool stuff on that site.
