Rush Atlantic Years vinyl reissues!
Limited time offer included for hi-res 96kHz/24bit album download
Rush's 2015 year of reissues has gotten busier. The band throughout much of 2015 has been bringing its classic early albums to vinyl and hi-def digital audio via a yearlong reissue campaign that encompasses the LPs they recorded for Mercury between the self-titled 1974 debut and 1989′s A Show of Hands.
Those releases, scheduled to conclude in December, will now be joined by a separate slew of reissues that focus on the group's Atlantic recordings.
Six of those albums — Presto (1989), Roll the Bones (1991), Counterparts (1993), Test for Echo (1996), Feedback (2004) and Snakes & Arrows (2007) — are set to be pressed on audiophile-quality. Three of the releases (Counterparts, Test for Echo and Snakes & Arrows) are being released as two-LP sets; according to a press release, the Counterparts and Test for Echo vinyl editions also "feature etched designs on side D of the album which are available for the first time on these pressings."
The set of reissues, called the Atlantic Years on Vinyl, will arrive in chronological installments — with Presto and Roll the Bones arriving Oct. 23. Counterparts and Test for Echo follow Nov. 6, with Feedback and Snakes & Arrows rounding out the series on Jan. 15, 2016.
"By 1993, alternative rock had arrived in a big way, and surprisingly, Canadian veterans Rush were game, releasing their most honest and organic rock 'n' roll record in over a decade with Counterparts. Opener 'Animate' is straightforward enough, but doesn't even hint at the guitar ferocity and lyrical angst of 'Stick it Out,' a song which undoubtedly polarizes Rush fans to this day. Intellectual melodic rockers like 'Cut to the Chase,' 'At the Speed of Love,' and 'Everyday Glory' are also present (and less shocking), but diversity continues to rule the day with Geddy Lee's bass taking charge on the amazingly somber 'Double Agent' and the giddy instrumental 'Leave That Thing Alone.'" — AllMusic
