Geddy must have listened to this with a grin. He sounds magnificent. Wow, they were perfect. :notworthy:

Ged's bass sounds so much better in those old recordings. It sounds more prominent somehow.

Was it just his classic black-and-white Fender Jazz?

Or Terry Brown.

Imagine listening to this and thinking

"Nah, it's not good enough for the Exit Stage Left album."

 

:o

Maybe they knew they were saving it for the 40th Anniversary Edition?

Again.......Rush at the very pinnacle of their live sonic greatness.....just creamy goodness.

 

Analog equipment plus Terry Brown equals this dreamy soundscape.

 

Never to be outdone. And I am not saying everything after is not brilliant. It just went to a different sonic soundscape. And would argue that Signals aged incredibly well in retrospect and I consider it part of this era.....it was the last true analog styled recording. Then the electronic drums and PPG Wave came into the fold and the sound went in another sonic direction (and I love that era too make no mistake P/G thru HYF).

 

The beauty of Rush is all their different sonic periods. It keeps things to this day so interesting and keeps their music fresh to this day.

This sounds remarkably like the ESL video version. I know this was their sound at that stage - just not sure if this is the same show or not ... can't tell the difference.

For most of the show, yes.

 

Pics and video seems to indicate that YYZ saw the '72 Jazz.

 

As for the autotune comment, I am now curious to go back and relisten. I hope that it is truly not the case, but I won't hold my breath on it.

Yeah I got excited with this new/old release then listened to a remastered ESL version by a guy called Stickhits and not sure. Stickhits has remastered all the Rush live videos. Here's the link for Limelight.

Never been a fan of this song, but if I were ever to choose a live version to listen to it would be the Exit..,Stage Left/ King Biscuit version.

Not going to listen to this one until it arrives in my mailbox but I hope it's closer to that version. Most live versions of this tend to be a borefest for me. So it would be nice to have something more inspiring to listen to.

I’ve been following this guy’s channel for a while. He does the same thing I do with enhancing old Rush footage but 10x better than me. I believe he mentioned he’s an audio engineer so he knows how to alter the audio and make it sound better.

**Video not available in my country**

 

I'm in Canada FFS....unreal

 

You can use a VPN to watch the video. I’m in the same boat for a lot of Rush music videos post 1988. I have to use a VPN to watch them because they’re blocked in the US.

Yeah I could. I don't get why Vital Signs wasn't blocked, but this one is.

 

...and why block it? anyone tuned into this project's release at this point is buying it even if they put 90 percent of the concert on youtube.

I hated his live bass sound in the later years. Tinny or something.

Can someone please explain how Alex is keeping that sustained note at the end of the solo yet playing an arpeggio at the same time? Delay pedal? Tape loop? Wtf is going on there?

you can see in ESL he uses an effects pedal for that.
