Celebrating 40 years of Rush’s Permanent Waves, deemed the poignant moment the band reinvented themselves and their sound. The 3LP Deluxe Edition features original vinyl packaging with a newly designed gatefold jacket for the two discs of live bonus tracks (from the 1980 World Tour). With a 20-page booklet of reimagined artwork by original designer Hugh Syme & unreleased band archive photos. Housed in a slipcase. Features hits like “The Spirit Of Radio” and the cinematic “Jacob’s Ladder”.
Rush’s 8th album, 1980’s Permanent Waves, is where the little Canadian trio that could, became one of the biggest rock acts on the planet. Much of the success is thanks to the album’s best known track “The Spirit of Radio”—proof that a prog-rock band known for marathon epics could also pen short(er) catchy singles. “Spirit” also marked the band’s initial experiment with adding reggae flavors to its music. The new shorter, lower approach made another pair of songs here—”Freewill” and “Entre Nous”—into instant Rush highlights.
