This has the song, "Run Willie Run", by Alex Lifeson and an unknown vocalist. This original tune was written in 1969, on acoustic guitar.

The Freedom of Music website used to have a video clip, but I do have the mp3 if anybody wants it.

I remember watching in amazement as Geddy sang, played bass, and played the keyboards with his feet. I thought, "Who is this guy???"

One of my favourites is the video for The Body Electric - nice dystopian future vision.

I must say that my sister (not a Rush fan) quite likes the actor playing the runaway.

Here's a video of Rush in 1979 at the Pink Pop Festival in Holland doing La Villa. It has all my favorite things; Long hair, ES335, and it wasn't yet the '80s. Good times.
