Hi all. I am new to the forum and stumbled onto this post because of the album "Rushin Roulette".  I actually have a copy of one and know a bit about where it came from.  Back in 81 (or there abouts) a friend of mine gave it to me because she knew that I was a big fan.  I asked her where she had gotten it.  She said one day on her way home from school, a large white truck (or van) with nothing except the name Rush on the side of it stopped in front of a local music/head shop. It opened the back, and started to throw t-shirts and other promotional items out the back.  They saw her and called her over.  They handed her the album.  From what I remember she said she was the only one who has gotten one.

It's a cool album.  It is like the game Russian roulette with one bullet in the chamber.  You always have a one in six chance of what song you will get.  All six tracks originate from the outer edge of the album and and in the center.  Each starts at a different position eg the 2 o'clock,  4 o'clock, 6 o'clock etc and so when you place the tone arm down on the outer edge, you don't know what song will play! Anyway I am fairly sure that it's on a Mercury label... I don't have it with me at the moment to verify that. More to come if anyone is interested.
Welcome to the forum..... :cheers: :)

More please.

Seems odd that she'd get the only album out of a promotional truck like that, but I suppose stranger things have happened.

I'd like this a whole lot better if entire tracks and not just the first two minutes of each song played, but maybe that was the only way it would work. Cool concept though.

I think I played mine a few times as soon as I got it to see how it worked, but haven't touched it since other than to look at the front and back cover sometimes.
