Jacobs Ladder

Post by Soup4Rush » Mon May 01, 2006 3:56 pm

On ESL, Geddy is talking to the crowd and he says "this was done a long time ago by the great_______" Who did he mention here? It sounded like PT Gurnsey... whoever that may be. just curious is all.

Good question indeed. All I'm aware of is that the story originates from the bible.

I wonder if it's mentioned in one of the Rush books, like Chemistry?

The account of Jacob's ladder is found in Genesis 28: 10-22, if anyone wants to read it. The verse the ladder is taken from is verse 12.

I have seen something about this song by Neil, but I forget where. :oops:

"We'd like to do an old song for you right now ... This was done a long time ago by the that old T.C. Broonsie. This is called 'Jacob's Ladder."

TC Broonsie is Terry Brown (producer of many Rush albums).

The song is named after their longtime producer Terry Brown (T.C. Broonsie), who produced this and Rush's first 11 albums.

Also to note, this song is not recorded on any studio album, thus no available studio only version. It exists only on the live "Exit Stage...Left" album.

This was actually to be part of THE TREES acoustic intro but was rejected by Terry Brown aka Broon, therfore the title Broons Bane.

What is the chance Rush's new album will be called Gangster of Boats?
