If Hemispheres is next i wonder what nonsense Hugh Syme will come up with for the cover.A naked goblin gesturing to an alien on a sea of brain cells all in 3D perhaps.

Given that it's one of their worst album covers anything should be an improvement.

Official Fake News:  The next anniversary release will be ... wait for it ... 3 CDs and a bluray (live versions) of bands doing covers of "I Think I'm Going Bald".

It will be awesome.  :rush:

I think the artwork is cool.

Why not make some bootlegs into legit live albums?

Agreed.  The remasters/5.1s do nothing for me;  I’m not an audiophile.  I’m also not a completist, so I don’t care about alternate takes and demos.   I’d prefer a live disc from the Signals tour, the PeW tour, and a full show from the MP show.

I fall to the category of being a completist I'm afraid but that's besides the point. I'd like to see a full Presto disc as well since the one Rush released necessarily isn't a full show just like ESL isn't a complete show. In fact, why not release discs from all the album tours that haven't been released?

Did they ever release a live audio based on the official video from the Grace Under Pressure tour?

I also would love to hear a professional mix of an entire HYF show, rather than the hodge-podge of material on the Show of Hands album or the incomplete show that was released on video.

Yes. Bonus disc with the Replay x3 dvd set.

It was also released on it's own with the exact same Grace Under Pressure front cover. The only addition is "1984 Tour" is on the bottom left.  Probably out of print by now though. Different mix than the original video and bootlegs however which always disappointed me.

It'd be nice to get a full show from that tour. I had an old bootleg on cassette but the quality wasn't great. Blistering version of Red Barchetta IIRC...

What they did with Red Barchetta on that tour was really sweet.

While I have great musical memories attached to the original Hemispheres artwork, it is an ideal pick for Syme to work his magic and come up with a modified cover. I would love to have some sort of 40th Anniversary editions of all the titles but I think the only titles that should get the overblown treatment from here on out is MP/ESL.
