I´m 42 years old, going 43, and hope to live long enough to find a reissue of an album which improves the original. Remakes/re-record/remix/bonus disc and all, nothing tops an original release.
Unless that release is Vapor Trails

You may have a point.

Yeah when I saw this was going to sell for $125, I looked at what was included and kind of scratched my head. Hard to see value in that kind of price for basically cover songs.

I think the OP made some excellent points and his one point that no one really addressed was regarding Rush continuing to release these cash grabs. Isn'i this a 180 from what the band used to be about? I think his disappointment in Rush and the big picture of the capitalists they have become is what's disappointing him.

Personally, Rush never came off as a band that represented themselves as anti-capitalism or whatever. I'm not totally sure what value he's referring to that they had then and what has changed. They are hard working capitalists, as evidenced by the price for this set, and the prices for their last few tours. They have realized their fan base is loyal, will buy anything Rush, and overall very affluent.

Difference is that their concerts were still the highest of quality and they deserved every penny they could get. This 2112 set at 125 is crazy. And it's certainly not just Rush coming up with the retail prices for this stuff. I'm sure others influenced this price as well.We will see how long the fans hang with it...

I'm just not sure how it might go when they re-issue Presto with a cover of Anagram for Mongo, live video footage of the bunnies used for the cover, and never before heard takes of Alex saying Superconductor, Superconductor are whats included for 80 bucks
