Rush - Moving Pictures: 40th Ann. Half-Speed Master 180g Vinyl 5LP

Rush Moving Pictures: 40th Ann. Half-Speed Master 180g Vinyl 5LP


40th Anniversary Half-Speed Mastered 180g Vinyl 5LP Box Set with Original Album and Unreleased 1981 Toronto Concert Plus Booklet with New Hugh Syme Illustrations and Exclusive Liner Notes!


Rush celebrates 40 years of Moving Pictures with a Deluxe Edition 5LP box set reissue! All vinyl has been cut half-speed Direct-To-Metal Mastering for the first time ever and pressed on 180-gram audiophile LPs.


LP1 features the original album, while LPs 2-5 feature the complete, unreleased Toronto concert from March 25, 1981. Extras include a booklet with new Hugh Syme illustrations and liner notes by Kim Thayil, Les Claypool, Taylor Hawkins, Bill Kelliher and Neil Sanderson.


Rush's complex songwriting and musical virtuosity reached new heights on eighth studio album, Moving Pictures (1981) and it became the band's biggest selling album in the U.S., rising to No. 3 on the Billboard charts.


Remaining Rush's most popular and commercially successful studio recording, Moving Pictures followed a more radio-friendly format and includes several signature tracks, including "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," "Red Barchetta," and the band's highly praised instrumental, "YYZ," which is the IATA airport identification code of Toronto Pearson International Airport.


The album cover is a monument to triple entendre. Movers are physically moving pictures, people are crying because the pictures passing by are emotionally "moving," and the back cover depicts a film crew making a "moving picture" of the whole scene.
