For all of the "classic" or "early" Rush fans, this audio track of a Tucson show in '78, is in my opinion, THE recording to hear.  Many of you are probably already aware of this one, but for those of you who are not... you must check this out.  It's Rush live at their very best... (Again, in my opinion.) https://www.youtube....h?v=r7d2NyzhIAM

In terms of the boards from this tour, this may have the best performance. I would have to listen to all of them again to decide what I would pick to be the best performance available (Vancouver, Chicago, the first night in Toronto, and Richfield should also be considered for best of tour performance).

Great show, no doubt.  I love Neil`s solo, but the sound man nearly ruined it near the end with too many weird effects put to the acoustic drums.  I saw this tour in April, `78 in Ottawa.  WICKED!  8,000 people sold out at the Ottawa Civic Centre.  NO ONE sat down during the whole show... wild crowd.  Wilder band.

Agreed, it was an amazing show.  I'm grateful to have these bootlegs.

This is probably the best bootleg from that tour that I've ever heard.  My first Rush concert was about 10 days after this. Amazing hearing it so clear. Sounds like an official release.

I haven't listened to bootlegs in forever because my phone capacity made me dump them. But isn't Black Forest from that tour a little better? My version of A Desert Passage cuts out a few times from a SB mix to what seems like a single mike in the back of the arena.

I have Black Forest and IMO this sounds better.

I just happened to stumble upon a show from Boston on Youtube awhile back.  It gives this one a good run for its money.

Isn't Black Forest from the next tour?  It contains Cygnus X-1 and Hemispheres back to back.

Purchased is a dirty word when it comes to boots. I haven't traded in years, but I know there are sites out there that with a little work, you can download them for free. I think one site was called dimeadozen.com, and I forgot what the other one was. I never used dime.

Canadianice, why don't you do a search in the bootleg section?  I'm sure someone posted a link recently (the past year or less) for you to download it.  Better yet, why don't you put your name on the hard drive vine list?  http://www.therushfo.../page__st__1300

Another suggestion is to pm Zumbi.  At one point he put a lot of bootlegs for download somewhere.  Maybe he can help you.

Definitely a great show.  There's something about Lee's bass playing on one of those Hemispheres Germany boots, though - Universe Divided, I think.

Why not just rip the remaster from YouTube? It sounds much better than the one on the hard drive.

  I want a physical copy(cd). This one seems very hard to track down.
