When I call Best Buy, how do I let them know it's not the R40 dozen or so disks package that I am asking for?

What's the official name of this one?
R40 Live
Thank you for answering what most probably (and they would be right) thought was one of the dumbest questions someone on a rush forum could ask.  :lol: :cool:

I stopped at my Best Buy around 11:20 this morning.  They had one on the shelf, and now, of course, they have none.  But it didn't look like they stocked up for a huge demand.  Bieber CD's, on the other hand, they had aplenty.

At the Best Buy I went to, there was a couple of R40 Live CDs, a few of the R40 Live CD/DVD combos, and only one of the R40 Live BluRay/CD combos left which ended up being mine as I grabbed it as soon as I saw it.

Had disc three in my car on my way over, and listened to Camera Eye... I think it sounds great actually....not sure what isn't liked?!?!


I'm the one that didn't like it.  Hopefully I'm in the minority.  I'm listening via Apple Music.  The verses just don't sound right to me.  It sounds like Alex is playing on an acoustic, and Geddy's voice just sounds too rough (as it has for the past few live albums) for me.  Overall it sounds too sparse.  I'm glad you enjoy.  Hopefully most others will as well.

I sent my local Best Buy an email.  I dare not disconnect my dial-up for fear of not being able to connect again.

For the first time in 30 years, I've decided not to get a Rush item on release day. All so the kiddies could get Daddy something for Christmas.

I thought about that, but will probably just get socks,..
Better than coal in a stocking.  :sigh:
Is that another Narps underwear reference?
I needed that laugh very much this morning.  I must, must, must, must find a reasonably priced high speed.  Our dial up wouldn't connect this morning.  When I called the hosting company to tell them, the man said to me:  "Well, you know Ma'am, dial up is an archaic technology."  :eh:  Like I don't already know that?  :eyeroll:   Like anyone would choose to have dial-up when they can afford high speed?  :smash:

Don't you love comments like that?  We drove our 1994 van until last summer when our mechanic said it was literally rusted away; because we were putting 3 kids through college.  Some guy who would sometimes gas up at the same time as me used to look at it and say, "Come on lady, buy something new!"  Thanks, dude, I didn't know it was old.  Actually, I loved it, very dependable until the end.

Holy crap, I don't think I've had more of a journey getting a disc in my life. Just outside toronto went to an hmv and the guy said they were sold out the moment the doors opened at 10:00, luckily another location 20 minutes away had plenty. Needless to say the product of course is well worth the time and money spent, lol. Superb quality both audio/visual, reminds me of the TMT blu ray.

Of course would have been great getting some behind the scenes stuff mainly some type of documentary. Could someone refresh my memory on this documentary that was shot during the tour and what exactly it encompassed?

The only extras I liked on past dvds were the behind the scenes docs like on rio and clockwork. Could care less when they add all that family guy, south park, funny clips just as add-ons, they are useless. But the clockwork doc was great.

From hearing all this it's pretty disappointing. I was thinking about going out today and picking it up if the reviews were good, but if all of those mistakes were left in it's going to be really upsetting to listen to.
  It is really good----believe me.   :rush:

Agree. I don't care about the mistakes. Glad I am working from home today and I have the house to myself. Our cats are hiding somewhere due to the volume coming out of the stereo. Get the CDs!!

Still no answer from Best Buy.  Knowing my area, they're probably scratching their heads and asking Who the hell is Rush?

Just in case the power goes out you can use the flashlight to read the liner notes.

In that case, a little magnifying glass should have been included as well.  You know, like the ones you'd get in a box of Cracker Jacks?

Eagle, I see what you mean about Best Buy and their customer service.  I could have walked there and back by now.
