LAST UPDATED AUGUST 10, 2005


      Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
8-14-74  First Time     

1CD X AD VG-

As you can see, this show is an original, and after receiving it, I learned that it never came with a Front insert, so of course I cannot offer you one. As you may or may not be aware, this is the first night Neil played live with the band. It's only 26:38 long though. In the middle of "Working Man" (which is the last track) the sound becomes really distant, as if the taper had placed the microphone(s) in their pocket. The quality for this part is still VG-.

8-14-74         First Time   RTA Edition  

1CD X AD VG

The "RTA Edition" version is the better choice! For a comment about what "RTA" is, how it was used here, and even a link to a picture of an "RTA Machine", please click
HERE . 3:32 minutes into track 4, "Working Man", the sound changes to the end of track 5, which is the "Drum Solo" and the end of the CD. I rate just this part VG-. There are a couple dozen one channel only pops throughout. These are not present on "First Time", but since my copy of the "RTA Edition" version came from the person that remastered it, they do belong.

8-26-74            New In Town - Platinum Edition 

1CD FM EX

This show was taken directly from the Master tapes and remastered onto CD at a professional studio, then played by WMMS Radio, Cleveland, Ohio. Then recorded off the airwaves and remastered onto CD-R. I expected an EX+ out of this, but it's still of high quality. This is also the first time it has been the complete show. This version also includes another "RUSH" original song called "Garden Road", which was more than likely not heard until the rebroadcast of this concert. This song was written in 1970 with "John Rutsey" on drums. This CD has 2 bonus tracks from ABC's "In Concert" on 12-16-74, that I rate SB VG+.

8-26-74                    The Fifth Order Of Angels   

1CD (SHN) (Pre-FM SB) EX+

In audio CD format, this is a 1CD show. If you only want one show from this tour, this is it!!! Everything is crisp and clear. The sound produced for the "Drum Solo" is increadable with the bounceback of the stereo seperation. This is the best version of this date that I have.

8-26 & 12-16-74        Return To Cleveland  

2CD X FM CD1/VG+, CD2/EX-

Both shows are from the Agora Ballroom, Cleveland, Ohio. This is a 2 Date/2CD set. I will break up the set if you would like.

1CD X AD VG

      Paramount Theatre (Seattle), Seattle, Washington
11-19-74     Music Is Paramount  

1CD AD EX-

This show has something really interesting happen. It has Geddy announcing a song by saying "We'd like to do a song that will probably be on our next album. This is a number called, 'Fancy Dancer' ". During the drum solo on "Working Man", the sound becomes really muddy until the next track. The CD starts off very rough. It sounds like the tape used for this show was well worn out at the beginning, and a couple more times later on. These next couple of times aren't as long as the first.

      Whiskey A Go-Go, Hollywood, California
11-27-74     Rushian Whiskey 74 

1CD X AD VG

This CD also has bonus tracks. Tracks 7 & 10-12, are from 10-9-74 "Don Kirshners Rock Concert", although track 7, which is "The Trees", was not played this night, so I truly believe this track actually came from the video called "Chronicles", but I cannot prove it. It is a couple of generations old, thus a lower quality rating. Tracks 8 & 9, are from 12-6-74 ABC's "In Concert". Tracks 8-12, I rate SB VG+.

      Electric Lady Studios, New York/Manhattan, New York
12-5-74                      Electric Lady Land Studios 1974

1CD FM EX-

12-5-74 Electric Rush

1CD FM EX-

"By-Tor 74" is the best quality version of this date.

      ABC Studios, New York/Manhattan, New York
12-6-74   ABC Studios  

1CD NI SB VG+

This show is from "ABC's In Concert Series", and is 2 tracks that is 7:15 long total. If you are looking for this show, I have them on 2 other titles. They are on "New In Town - Platinum Edition" and "Rushian Whiskey 74". IMO, these songs are a direct copy from "New In Town - Platinum Edition". The sound quality, track times, volume and even the slightly mastered too high causing a very slight clipping are identical. As to which version of these 2 songs sounds better of the 3 versions, that is a tough call. "Rushian Whiskey 74" is a little less bright, but I prefer "New In Town - Platinum Edition" or "ABC Studios".
