Superconductor

Which I have grown to love, off of an album I truly regard as one of the finest ever in its genre.

Amazing pop rock, Presto is a damn fine amd sexy album!

It has my favourite Rush song as well: Chain Lightning.

In terms of how an album sounds, not much.

Superconductor is to me the worst song they ever wrote. Again, I will remind those who were there and inform those who were not of the way that song raped Xanadu on the RTB tour as it vomited forth from an exciting version.

I'm not sure I follow what you are saying.  Are you saying they cut short Xanadu to do Superconductor?

He seems to have left the premises.

I hope that's not what he is saying.   If so, I will need to take two Anacin and go lay down.

I went and dug out my stick to see what he's talking about.

It looks like Superconductor followed Xanadu on the set list from the RTB tour.  :o   Must have been quite the moment.  How does one go from Xanadu to Superconductor?  :huh:

Make that three Anacin.

Has anyone here ever heard about anything that might have happened to them between Hold Your Fire and Presto?  I am asking because in the Rush book that I have (and I noticed it before I got the book but didn't know the correct time-frame), in looking of pictures taken during the Hold Your Fire tour (including Show of Hands) and during the Presto tour, they seemed, all of them, to have aged considerably in a very short time.  

I'm wondering if it was at that point in time that fifteen plus years of touring caught up with them?

Interesting question - I ask it about myself:  when exactly did I start to look older?  I have to admit I never really noticed with Rush until I guess Vapor Trails.  Then I noticed the wrinkles a bit.  Maybe with Lee, he just looked like a young full-of-life kid when he was wearing that raccoon skin cap, but when he took it off, something changed - I think that was the start of the Yoko period for him?  With Lifeson, I think the goatee made him start to show his age.  It wasn't a good idea.  Peart just started to look fleshy and jowly (?) at some point. . .

What book were you looking at? Any particular photographs you had in mind?

It wasn't just Geddy.  It was all of them.  Alex looked the worst he's ever looked - his face was so bloated and he put on lots of weight.  

If you have the book Contents Under Pressure by Martin Popoff, just look at the pictures from Hold Your Fire/Show of Hands and flip to RTB.  It is quite an obvious change in their appearance.

I do have that book, and I'll check it out.
