Jacobs Ladder finishes it off

CTTC is up there as one of the best songs they never played.

It is a brilliant piece of music, and the fact that they held off playing it for so many years only added to the mystique

AFAIK it was only played on the Signals tour. It was THE song that got me hooked on Rush when I was dragged along with a couple of friends to see them in 1983. I was an impressionable 14 year old who was also a space nut - so much so I held a cassette recorder in front of the TV speaker for the first shuttle launch. I still have the tape
So dated, hokey, whatever, Countdown will always be special to me.

No, it's not silly at all.

I would agree with you. Especially the first half of the first set.

yeah, I was one of the negative nancies who thought the set wouldn't have any songs before permanent waves besides CTTH, overture/temples and working man. I'm so glad I was wrong.

That part of the song is very cool, along with the similar part in the middle of the song.

Someone here said that they read somewhere that they did. And if you were here before the tour was announced, and lived through the endless setlist threads, and threads asking what they should play on their next tour, you might have a different opinion.
I'm not one to think that they look here, but after Tulsa, I changed my mind. They played everything we were clamoring for.
