Rush - Permanent Waves

 (40th Anniversary Edition)




 

40th Anniversary 3LP Deluxe Edition of the breakthrough Rush album!

New gatefold jacket for two LPs of live content!

Rush releases a 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition 3LP of their breakthrough album Permanent Waves. In addition to an original album remaster made in 2015 at Abbey Road Studios, the collection adds unreleased live cuts from the tour in support of the album.

Permanent Waves is the band's seventh studio album, released on January 14th, 1980. It was recorded at Le Studio, Morin Heights, Quebec, and mixed at Trident Studios in London. The tracks were laid down just shy of four weeks, in part attributed to the idyllic working conditions of Morin Heights. The album marks a transition from long, conceptual pieces, into a more accessible, radio-friendly style. "The Spirit Of Radio" is one of the most commercial songs Rush has ever produced, containing several different musical elements, even a touch of reggae.

The waving man in the background of the album cover is actually Hugh Syme, the band's long time design collaborator.

This three LP Deluxe Edition features original album packaging, a newly designed gatefold jacket for the two discs of live bonus tracks (from the 1980 Permanent Waves World Tour) and a 24-page booklet of unreleased photos all housed in a slipcase.

Permanent Waves became the band's most successful album at the time of release, reaching No. 3 in Canada and the U.K. and No. 4 in the U.S.. The album was certified platinum in the U.S. by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling 1 million copies.
