At a guess, winding down after a long tour having arrived home

WOW! Good guess! Sure you haven't heard it before? It represents "the tremendous emotional impact of coming home" as he once put it.

The "winding down after a long tour" bit was never mentioned, but I consider that one additional aspect that is often true in their case. One point!


I knew that YYZ itself is bassed on Toronto Airport's call sign, and while I've not seen the quote you've mentioned, but I have seen a quote along the lines of "It's always a happy day when those letters appear on our bags, because it means we're going home".

It seemed logical that if the intro is the thrill of the flight and landing, the slow bit is the relaxation that hasppens afterwards.

It's been reinstated onto the remastered ESL CD as well (which is the one I have).

Neil and Alex went out onto a lake close to Le Studio and and splashed the water gently with their hands.

From the tourbook:
"Frivolities aside, the work continued as we plowed through a mountain of overdubs. Alex and I splashed oars in the lake with shivering hands to record the "Tide Pool" effects, voices and guitar sounds were sent out over the lake to make use of it's natural echo, the tympani was recorded outdoors, guitar amps were strung all over the building to take advantage of as many different sounds as possible."

A fan since 74? I thought I was an old fan - I went out and got Fly by night in the summer of '75 after hearing By-tor on the radio. Maybe I'm the oldest European fan around?

Still remember when Caress of Steel was released. I was still 14 years old, and for a long time I thought it was called CARELESS of Steel! wacko.gif

Hey there Companion.  Although I'm sure I'm not the oldest at almost 43, I do remember listening to the LP "Rush" (remember those... LP's? laugh.gif ) that my friends older sister had just bought.  I was 12 then and here comes "Finding My Way" out of the speakers.  Been hooked ever since!  Great game, BTW, Companion!  And always glad to have another of "my generation" of fans around (and you too, rickyrob)!  Us "ol' farts" need to stick together! laugh.gif

Hey!  I need a little "old man with a walker" emoticon to use here! rofl3.gif  rofl3.gif
