DS for me. All the live albums are good but there's just something downright magical with everything on DS.

I was introduced to Rush through A Show of Hands, back in 1990. Then I saw the Presto tour (90) and the Roll the Bones tour (92). A few weeks ago, I finally bought Different Stages, which is incredible. Especially the 3rd disk, of the 78 concert in London featuring many of their oldies but goodies. I totally love DS, especially Dreamline, Driven, Analog Kid, the Trees.....I could go on.

This is a great compilation of the best live performances of the band over the 70s and 90s, released during a period of time when Neil was grieving his tragic loses of his wife and daughter. Rush has so many great songs spaning four decades, DS embodies their works through those years.

Different Stages. Every song live is great and its nearly flawless. The Rhythm Method is my favorite solo from Neil.

ATWAS for me. Furiously loud and raw. I love it. It's right behind Live at Leeds as my favorite live album. yes.gif

I'd say A Show of Hands. It's been growing on me a lot lately. Still love Exit Stage Left, though.

I said Rush In Rio because it was the first Live DVD I ever saw. On VH1 Classic, as well.
I also love Show Of Hands too. Because of how Geddy looked. He's one of the only rock musicians that rocked the mullet.

I voted for Different Stages, only for the Hammersmith disk, that was such a surprise when I first played it.  I wonder how many more 'nuggets' are in the Rush goldmine?
