Early Rush on Today’s Vinyl Vault – With a High Octane Warning

With their successful “radio friendly” chemistry in the early 1980′s, the earlier stuff Rush did no longer got much attention.  Still today I think, hearing things like ‘Fly By Night’ or ‘Closer To The Heart’ seems like a hit of fresh air rather than hearing ‘Tom Sawyer’ and the countless others over and over again.  Personally, my favorite piece by Rush is ’2112′ but it’s hardly radio friendly, and clocking in at around 20 minutes makes it unrealistic for airplay.  Second fave?  ‘Anthem’ from ‘Fly By Night.’  It’s the first thing I ever heard by them, seeing them perform it on some late night TV show back in the day.  Raw, loud, high octane!  Out of town?  Listen live on-line.
