New Rush vinyl release due for Record Store Day 2017!!
« on: March 10, 2017, 17:22:59 PM »
I have read on Facebook on a vinyl community page that Record Store Day 2017 will have some sort of vinyl release by Rush.


I have no idea what song(s) is being released nor any details about the format (7"/10"/12"/pic disc/coloured vinyl) but I have it on good authority that it's gonna be pretty cool though.

Want that, think it'll be easy enough to pick up after he rush (ho-ho) ends.

I want the Bowie stuff too, but can't be arsed to queue.  Although its the day after I get back from Japan so my body clock might be fecked enough for it not to be so difficult..

Interesting artwork. The cork being sucked back into the bottle? The end of the band? Hmmmm.....

Yes - I thought the artwork was rather odd, surprised it was Hugh Syme tbh - could have done something a bit better in my opinion.

Beware the term "audiophile 180g" - it means nothing special. My guess is that it will be the standard LP versions of these two tracks. Unless new master pressings are made with Cygnus X-1 Book 1 being cut at a different groove pitch (with Book II this will not be possible due to track length) or Book II being started on side 1 of the disc allowing for a more dynamic pressing, the audio quality is unlikely to better the originals. A 'half-speed' mastered disc would also provide sonic improvement but it's unlikely any company would go to such lengths for what is, essentially, a limited edition novelty.

The artwork appears to reference Geddy's hobby of consuming fine wine.
