More information: On 26th August 1974 Rush played at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio, a show recorded and broadcast by WMMS radio, which made it Rush’s very first radio broadcast. It is this now legendary gig which forms the first disc of this set, alongside some bonus tracks which were recorded at the same venue a year later.

The second disc here is home to an FM broadcast recorded at Holland’s Pinkpop Festival in June 1979. Perfomed while the group were promoting their 1978 album Hemispheres, this rarely heard recording is included here on CD for the first
time.

The final disc in this collection featured the classic 1980 broadcast from the group, recorded at the Kiel Auditorium in St Louis, Missouri, on 13th February as part of their Permanent Waves Tour, and this recording remains arguably one of Rush’s very finest live performances.
