Quote from: Thailand Express on November 17, 2017, 12:08:08 pmEdit - I will probably buy Prog for old times' sake. Always hard to resist a Rush front cover
Quote from: DavidL on November 16, 2017, 23:58:02 pmThe album anniversary is obviously embraced by magazines like Prog who's aim is to continue to generate interest from old product. How many times have we seen that front cover shot ffs? I imagine the content within contains more images that have been used many times previously. I'm assuming the interviews contains something new but I wouldn't be too surprised if I'm wrong.
Quote from: Thailand Express on November 22, 2017, 16:40:43 pmI agree it's a scandalous price for a magazine. However I had a voucher at Tesco for £6 off if I spent £40 and Prog took me over the threshold
Quote from: captainkurtz on October 19, 2017, 19:09:43 pmSo frustrating. Such a lazy reissue.They really need to appoint someone to research and sift through whatever they have in the archives and make these releases special for the fans.

Quote from: RAY4583 on November 30, 2017, 02:49:09 am Ummmm,.... With all due respect,...they *did* research/sift through the archives. And, this fan thinks the box set is indeed special.
Quote from: RAY4583 on December 03, 2017, 05:25:36 am Just a follow-up here. 1) When you claim that, "they" went through the archives, who, exactly do you claim "they" to be?2) You claim, "...all they could find..." was some unreleased material from the Hammersmith '78 show. How do you know that's all that was found? Perhaps more was indeed found, but, this is all that was chosen to have been worthy of use.3) Like the bands who recorded cover versions or not, they're certainly, "somebodies", and not, "nobodies". Just because you may not have heard of some of them, to call them, "nobodies" only shows ignorance.4) "Hardly a labour of love"? Ummmm,...do you know exactly how long it took, from stem to stern, to finally have this box set see the light of day? Labor? Most definitely! "Of love"? Well,...there certainly must be a depth of admiration, enthusiasm, and passion, to devote almost a year-and-a-half (true labor!) to a project. Seems to me like this beautiful, abundant, celebrated set was a true, "labor of love", in the truest sense of each word.
Quote from: Dods on December 03, 2017, 10:39:53 amDon't post much nowadays but should get back into here. Friends, you will not be surprised that I totally agree with the above. There is a LOT to look forward in this release and I do believe that while there may be snippets in the vaults, perhaps not commercially viable or oh good enough quality. Also bear in mind, SRO/Anthem is NOT an independent company anymore so...personally I cannot wait for a 5.1 Hemispheres - sonic heaven
Quote from: captainkurtz on December 03, 2017, 14:37:34 pmI'll get it when it's gets drastically reduced next year when they try to shift the masses of unsold units. Picked up the 3 vinyl 2112 for a tenner a few weeks ago. Bargain, that.
Quote from: The Old Dog on December 03, 2017, 12:31:42 pmIt really begs the question though Dods why not release the 5.1 as a standalone and not as part of an expensive box set ,which is pissing a lot of folk off so I've heard.I'm certainly not going for this as we already have the studio re release from 2015 in the vinyl format and I'm not altogether that fussed about a couple of extra tracks from a live recording that is available as a roio ,definitely don't want a reprint of the 1978 tour book nor the the tacky ring thing nor the slip mat for that matter.
