I'm curious whether this is a universally loved Rush tune or not.

:popcorn: :popcorn:

And while you are at it, if you don't mind, what is your favorite live version of it from either professional dvds or bootlegs?

I thought it's been well established for years that this is a universally loved Rush song.

Don't you know by now never to assume anything about Rush fans?

No, you're not, you're just trying to find out Peart's username.       Surprised he hasn't sued Rushisaband.com for including material from pre-MP days, since it implies incorrectly that they were a band then.

True, but I think this is one song most fans will agree is great. Even if you don't like the rest of Hemispheres, I don't see how it's possible to not like La Villa.

Their finest instrumental, which has FIERCE competition. I like or love all of their instrumentals but this is truly the pinnacle.

Oh, I'm sure someone will come along and tell us that they don't understand the love for it.  Or something like that.  :lol:

Popcorn and sodas indeed.

For the record, I love it. I'm in awe, every time I listen to it.

I'll give special honorary mention to the version on the Time Machine release, simply for the fact that their chops are all still that good in the 2010s.

So far I don't measure up very well to what a true Rush fan is, but I do love La Villa.  

I don't think Alex, even though he may have come close to it on occasion, ever surpassed it.

I would have to question why anyone would be here that didn't like La Villa Strangiato.   :(
