Mine used to be ESL.

Now it's RIR.  The mixing s*cks on it - but I like the newer music (heavier, more bass!), so I keep listening to RiR.

Silly girl. The bass in all of the pre 1990 albums was much more complicated and interesting back then then now. Geddy pretty much just does straight forward boring stuff nowadays because he seems to focus on his vocals a bit more. The only reason you find the bass heavier now is because of production and quality of recording today. If they had the technology back then, i'm sure geddy would have been just as heavy/heavier back in the early days as well.

Different Stages for me.
It has it all, plus 2112(all of it), the best version of Roll the Bones(way ahead of the studio version, the live version of Dreamline also rocks.

The best live album ever, quite possibly, alongside Thin Lizzy, Live and Dangerous(I know it was doctored, but God how it rocks!!!!)

They're all great in their own way. I had to go with ATWAS. Basically because of all the classic Rush material that they pretty much don't play anywome (Anthem, Bastille Day, Fly By Night, Lakeside Park, Finding My Way, etc). Also the transition between Lakeside Park and 2112 sends chills down my spine every time I hear it.

Different Stages for me. That and Pink Floyd's PULSE are GREATEST LIVE ROCK RECORDS EVER!!! I was at the show where 2112 and Leave That Thing Alone were recorded in Mansfield, MA at Great Woods(now Tweeter Center). When they played all of 2112, I almost fainted. Alex's little guitar solo during Discovery rocked.

Oh Garage this is hard. There are great songs on every one! I had to choose Different Stages though. Last Spring Break I drove all the way to mexico with just Disk 1 of DS. doh.gif I couldnt believe i forgot all my music! I must have listened to that disc 200 times all the way through. I memorized what every fan screamed and when they screamed it. I memorized everything. Now whenever i listen to different versions of the songs i always expect the fans to scream what they did in DS disc 1. I devoloped almost a spiritual connection with that music. fing.gif I fell in love with it. I appreciated Rush more than i ever did before. I couldnt have made it through that vacation without that disc. Thank you Different Stages disc 1. Your sounds will be imprinted on the back of my skull forevermore.

Sounds like my trip to NY for the week last winter.  I coulda sworn I packed a travel cd case full of cds, but the only one that I fought I had with me was what was in the cd player when I boarded the train.  Needless to say, I dont think I can listen to Yes's Fragile without thinking of NY.

That reminded me of my trip back to native Boston, MA from Charleston, SC(where I lived mainly for two years) for almost THREE months for family issues and to see Rush on 30th Anniversary Tour! I accidentally bought a duplicate of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here album. My other copy was buried in suitcase and wanted to listen on plane but was in hurry to board plane so I bought another copy at an airport in Atlanta at a record store in airport during a switchover from planes.

ATWAS was technically the first live Rush album I heard(or half of live album I heard in July of 1988 as uncle had the original record(he lost record one)). ESL I first heard on an old station in Boston in May of 1990 called ECGY where they played ALL FOUR SIDES of ESL. I recorded YYZ through Xanadu. When I first heard live YYZ from ESL on May 11, 1990(I was 14 then), I was officially a Neil Peart fan(myself being a drummer discovered the successor to Moon and Bonham).

My favorite live album/DVDs
DS by a LONGSHOT!
RiR rivals DS
R30 is excellent
ESL was fantastic despite some doctoring
ATWaS was great but too raw
ASoH was bland pretty much save Marathon, Turn the Page, Manhattan Project, Mission, Witch Hunt and Time Stand Still. I didn't like the Signature Guitar nor the Simmons drums on CttH and was worse doctored than ESL
