Rush 'Moving Pictures (40th Anniversary)' 5xLP
Pre-order. Due 29th April.
New, expanded editions of the band’s groundbreaking 1981 release, Moving Pictures, embodying its well-deserved classic album status.
Moving Pictures, Rush’s eighth studio album, was originally released on February 12, 1981, and its adventurous yet accessible music catapulted the forward-thinking Canadian band to even newer heights as it began navigating the demands of a new decade. The album’s seven songs expertly blended Rush’s intrinsic prowess for channeling its progressive roots into radio-friendly arrangements, a template the band had mastered to a T all throughout its previous album, 1980’s deservedly lauded Permanent Waves. Moving Pictures was also the second of many Rush recording sessions at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, which was ultimately nicknamed the trio’s own personal Abbey Road recording studio.
Celebrating 40 years of Moving Pictures with the 5LP Deluxe Edition! All vinyl has been cut half-speed Direct-To-Metal Mastering for the first time ever and pressed on 180-gram audiophile vinyl. LP 1 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.
