Summertime Blues available to radio stations for airplay today. Heard it on 100.3 theQ (Victoria, BC) this morning. Awesome! (awip, you may get 94.7 better than 100.3).

A teaser is available on Rush.com!

In addition, for those of us in areas that won't play Rush on the radio, there is a clip available at Rush.com. Only about a minute or so but it sounds cool.

Don't ask me why but I got the whole song yesterday, not today though.
It is just absolutly amazing, love the sound. Of course I'm old enough to remember the orginal and got to say they did it justice. Cool

Stop being "old" around me, tattie! I can remember it too! OOOUGH! I was a drummer in my youth and had a crush on a bass player (no relation to Ged, THAT crush came later...I was strictly a drummer) and whenever they played the cover Summertime Blues I memorized the bass riff.

Now it can be OURS forever by the boys we love best! LOVEIT! Very Happy

The big question is will they actually release the single here in Britain. Rush singles never seem to get a UK release (I think the last one was Ghost of a Chance) and they're never actually stocked by any record shops.

So, if anyone gets full, incontrovertable evidence that it is getting a UK release, let me and I'll put it on order. None of my local record shops know anything about it (the pimply youth at HNV gave me a very blank look when I mentioned Rush.)

You never know. They are touring this year.

I heard the clip from Rush.com and all I can say is...wow. It really sounds like old Rush from the seventies, with those loud in your face guitars that I love. Wouldn't it be great if they wrote some new tunes with that sound and style? I know you can't go back, but it would be more like going full circle maybe.

I too heard the clip from Rush.com and was very impressed.

It's quite like the Blue Cheer version. A fine 70's sound, and I am pleased that Geddys voice has also been given something of a 70s revival...

Very encouraging indeed

I'm new to ths forum and have been a devoted fan of Rush since about 1981.I must ask you though, didn't Vapor Trails harken back to the loud days of the seventies?

VT was back to a harder sound, but not quite the simplicity of the first album. "Summertime Blues" just sounds like it could have been played that way by Rush 30 years ago- just 3 guys, without a care in the world, just knockin' off a couple of tunes just for fun.
