OK, so I'm not really collecting donations, but sending cooling thoughts to any European TRFers! "Britain is bracing itself for its hottest day ever today with temperatures expected to hit 102ºF (39ºC) amid health warnings and misery for travellers on what is being dubbed 'Tropical Thursday'. Temperatures were already at 77ºF (25ºC) in Royal Berkshire by 7am today after people struggled to sleep in the heat. Commuters are warned to stay at home amid fears rail tracks will buckle and roads will melt. The heatwave has been caused by what is known as an 'Omega Block', where high-pressure blocks and diverts the jet stream, allowing hot air to flow up from northern Africa. It follows another heatwave in June. There was a similar scene across much of Europe. The Netherlands and Belgium recorded their highest ever temperatures yesterday of 102ºF (39.1ºC)."

These three songs are built upon intriguing and difficult to follow staccato riffs, but which do you prefer?
Import Vinyl Pressings...
latheofheaven posted a topic in RushHello! This is my first post here. WOW! What a site! Holy smokes, I never realized that there was such a rich resource available to us. Well, firstly I basically listen to vinyl only when doing serious listening. I think that I have most of the original U.S. pressings of Rush's albums. My copy of 2112 sounds really good, but being pretty old, even though it's been cleaned and of course I've been very careful with it as with all of my albums, in the 2 or 3 quieter passages there are some recurring 'ticks' So, I would LIKE to get a better pressing if possible. I'm sure you guys know this stuff backwards and forwards, thus my extreme desire to hear from you. I would like to know if the first or 2nd UK, Japanese, or German pressings of primarily THIS album, but any others too, are either comparable to the original U.S. pressings or perhaps better as are many of my other Japanese and German pressings mostly. I have already snagged one Near Mint UK first pressing copy for about $27 shipped to the U.S., so I'm really looking forward to hearing what that sounds like. A friend of mine while we were at a record show happened to snag a number of UK Rush albums (the li'l B@stard saw them first! :) ) and they actually did seem to sound slightly better than mine (I think he got 2112, AFTK, and Moving Pictures) I also have the opportunity to purchase a Near Mint copy of what I believe is the 2nd Japanese pressing (1981) for about $40 shipped. A bit pricey for me, but I would LOVE to know if anyone has this pressing and knows what it sounds like compared to the original U.S. or just in general. Any other suggestions, please, as far as ANY of the vinyl Imports that would be an improvement over the U.S. ones, would be GREATLY appreciated. I've heard a direct comparison between my U.S. pressing (it actually MIGHT have even been a Columbia House pressing!) and the new Remaster (hologram) and although IF you didn't already have the original it wasn't too bad, really, but I could hear more openness and staging in the original. Thank you all so much for any guidance and input!
