  1. Thank you to Mr Moore I noticed the recording is running about 4.0% too fast so I took the liberty to speed correct it. https://mega.nz/file/U9YD0TLb#cNO6D5hVX_C3lCxna2NWQBsOa6ZN-E1Msecq3MBrwsM (I edited this post and the link to change it from 4.5% too fast to 4.0% too fast, because I'm insane =) )
  2. I have noticed this for many years... partially into Oracle: The Dream (~15:26), the bass drum is removed for a few bars. But if you listen to the isolated drums track, he definitely hits the bass drum. I guess either it's a mistake or Terry just wanted to mask out the bass drum for some reason.... always sounded odd to me.. I wonder why??
  3. OK, first up, I'm 99% sure the "previously unreleased performance of β€œ2112” from Tucson, Arizona 1978" as the Rush website says is NOT from Tucson, but rather sounds like the exact recording from the 5/28/79 show in Offenbach (near Frankfurt). Ian Grandy recorded that show in Offenbach. And yes the speed of the song is TOO SLOW on the 40th anniv release. Very noticeable. Really a shame that they can't the the show location or speed right. Reminds me of the 2112 40th anniv: "recently-rediscovered live version of the album track β€œThe Twilight Zone,” which plays EXTREMELY fast. I haven't measured it but Geddy sounds like a chipmunk. It's an abomination and I can't believe that got through quality control.
  4. First time I heard it, like you, my brain kind of automatically compared it to ESL, like without even explicitly trying. You know because we have all heard ESL a hundred times, so naturally what you hear on 'Live in YYZ' sounds different. My first impression was that it was energized, more aggressive and I liked the change right away =)
  5. Yes @DJLightray you are RIGHT. I extracted Tom Sawyer from my own 40th anniv. audio CD (ordered from rush.com) and I hear obvious pops. I extracted with Exact Audio Copy and it was accurately ripped, track quality 100% (no copy errors, perfect digital copy). I could easily hear the pop at 25 seconds, and the real obvious one at 28 seconds - that one is awful. I analysed in Cool Edit Pro and yup, the artifacts are visible in the Spectral View. I only looked at the 1st 30 seconds of Tom Sawyer and boom, mistakes are glaringly obvious. (I also downloaded it from Amazon Music and the same pops are present) Raw .WAV file here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhLz3m2U6ZgegZwsv98MC0BXwGT3Sw?e=pwPue9
  6. OK I'm confused.... The ASOH video version of 'The Big Money' is a different performance than the ASOH audio CD version of the same song? Right? I mean I notice obvious differences in the singing after I compared the Laserdisc video vs. the audio CD version for this song. The reason I bring this up is that your point #1 you appear to be comparing 'The Big Money' from the video vs. the audio CD as if they are the exact same performance; please let me know maybe I'm missing something ... sorry if so LOL
  7. this has the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio recording, this is the one right? It's from '84 but they play Limelight from '81 https://rushradio.net/mob_kbfh.php
  8. sorry, which version is this?? I'm guessing you're referring to ESL Video?? Thanks
  9. @By-Tor X-1You know, going back and listening to La Villa Strangiato from Mar 24 and comparing it to ESL and the 'Thank you very much ... huh huuh' thing is identical; I have to wonder if (after all) this song on ESL is indeed from Mar 24 Toronto, I mean the solo differs (some fixes/adjustments were made) ... makes me think -- for Live in YYZ, they were kind of 'forced' to use the Mar 25 version of La Villa Strangiato; i.e. if they used the Mar 24 version it would be the same source as ESL. I haven't done a detailed comparison. (like line them up in Audacity, speed correct and all that), not sure I have time or inclination to do this haha
  10. OK at the beginning of La Villa Strangiato on "Live in YYZ", Alex plays this little ditty, what is that??
  11. From what I can tell, it sounds like the only songs from Mar 25 are 2112, Freewill, Broon's Bane & La Villa Strangiato. All the others all seem to be from the 24th. Whatever other copy-pasting/mistake corrections they did, I think they did a great job with it. It's amazing, everyone sounds great and the performance is just excellent =)
  12. Listening to YYZ from Live in YYZ, and let me tell you, Geddy is killing it. The bass guitar sounds so good. And in the middle is Neil's solo which is just insane -- he is on-fire. You have to listen to this with nice headphones, incredible!
  13. Notes on the liner notes say : Live in YYZ 1981 Recorded live at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, ON by Guy Charbonneau using Le Mobile Remote Recording - March 24 & 25, 1981
  14. Apologies, late reply, I had leapt to a conclusion; the ESL liner notes do not mention Toronto. I am now quite embarrassed of trying to compare the boots from Toronto 3/23/81 - 3/25/81 to ESL.
