A silly little blog for me to drop the excrement of my mind.
-or- more video footage from the boys from the Great White North
Published on April 20, 2006 By BlueDev In Music

Hot on the heels of the success of previous releases R30 and Rush in Rio, the boys from the Great White North are preparing their fans for another round of DVD concert goodness. Announced earlier this month, Rush is preparing to release Replay x3 on June 13, 2006. With new stereo mixes of the audio (thanks to guitarist Alex Lifeson), the 4 disc set will contain DVD versions of some Rush classics, thus far only available on VHS (and some choice Laserdisc copies).

The set will contain 1982's Exit. . .Stage Left, 1985's Grace Under Pressure, and 1991's A Show of Hands. The fourth disc is actually a CD version of the Grace Under Pressure concert. Reprints of the tour books for those concerts are also included in the pack. Rush has previously released both Exit. . .Stage Left and A Show of Hands live CDs (as part of their traditional 4 studio albums followed by 1 live album cycle).

Recent years have seen a flood of Rush video footage, with both Rush in Rio and R30 garnering rave reviews. Replay x3 appears to continue this and will certainly help to tide over those of us who are salivating with anticipation at the news that the legendary trio is currently working on a new album.

This fan will most certainly be getting this latest set upon release!

While I haven't picked up anything by Rush in forever, they have always been one of my favorite bands. I'm also a big fan of live music, so this might be a good way to get something new for my Rush collection.

Chip: It really looks like it should be a great one.  Exit. . .Stage Left is one of their best live albums, A Show of Hands, while it suffers from post-80ism, is a great release, and Grace Under Pressure sounds like a fun one as well.

And if you haven't already, you really should check out R30!

Oooh, so excited. I can almost taste it now!
