ah, but I didn't get their albums in order.

Plus, if I'd got into a Rush a year later, the first live track I'd have heard by them might have been Spirit of Radio from ESL...

Or I might have heard something else from ATWAS on the Radio...

I was thinking about that the other day.  When you first started with Rush and how you bought/listened to their music.  How did/does that effect how you look at their work as a whole.  Just mind-wandering, really. wacko.gif You know, lots of time between MEDS! laugh.gif I was lucky enough (in a way) to have been able to listen to them "in order" and can't imagine hearing how they 'used to play' having never heard how they 'used to play' before!  Know what I mean?  I can't even imagine hearing something they had done before that I had never heard!  In a way, though, it would be kinda cool because you get to hear all this older stuff all at once!! drool1.gif O.K., so maybe I'm not so lucky after all! confused13.gif Yes I am... I love Rush, that's all that matters! trink39.gif  yes.gif

I can see your point there.  I would have loved to have heard the band's progression to their current state in the correct order but, alas, living in the UK, they really didn't  begin to make an impact over here until the late 70s and, in the early days, it was a case of finding someone who had import copies to get you into Rush

I like it better live also. It sounds less refined and even more heavy than in the studio. I too wish they would make it their opener again. It really gets me going. 1022.gif

We use this song in our band to open a concert. You'd be surprised how well it goes down. 2.gif  1022.gif  1022.gif

It's one of their first songs I've appreciated,and even though it isn't among my favourite tracks I like it very much.
I prefer the studio version,it's more intense.

I like this song so much that I named myself after it fing.gif

This is the very first song that I played, the first time that I jammed with a band (as opposed to along with my tape deck).  That feeling was awesome, and it's stuck with me as my fave  2.gif song  1022.gif

Its not a bad song, and it was great that they included a brief segment of it in the R30 Overture. As for it returning in full. No chance! Poor Geddy cant sing, and probably doesnt want to sing like that anymore!

Funny you guys mention this song, got a story that happened recently.

So in my World History class, we're learning about the french revolution, and my friend and I are both in that class(and both like Rush).

SO we were watching this video on the revolution. And at one point they said "the storming of Bastille on Bastille Day" My friend sits at the other side of the room, so I looked over to see what his reaction to that statement was, funny enough he was looking right back at me.

Same thing happened when they quoted the Queen as saying "let them eat cake"

can't decide if this is really strange, or incredibly cool.

Corse, with Rush, it's always both.

Great Song, btw. Love the riff to it.

The Live version "Hands Down". I can still remember walking into some drug store thrifty's or something like that. Back then they sold just about everything including Albums. When I saw ATWAS on the rack one glance at that drum kit and I knew I had to here this band plus it was a "two record set". Who are they, what's the music like and where are they from. Well I wasn't dissapointed I have been a fan ever since. If it was one thing you looked forward to it was putting on side one and LET THE FREY BEGIN!!! . But that aside, I am still waiting for someone to answer my question from yesterday. " What did that one fan yell out on the Album??

Well look, it's  trink39.gif   2.gif
