Or not. I am sitting in a chair, so I think THAT is most likely what I am on.

Man, that brings back memories. I have all of the albums on vinyl up to and including Presto. I have bought every album on the release date since GUP. Our local recored store owner, a cool woman even let me have Vapor Trails on the friday before it was officially released the following monday under strict instruction that I was not to tell anyone lest she lose her licence :-) .
I wonder how much money I've actually spent on Rush albums, with the vinyl, videos, the entire cd collection, singles, dvd's etc...hmm?

that's tre`cool Ogg....you're better of than I, as I only have vinyl up to Hemispheres...

I always wondered: why do they not follow the track order on vinyl when they transfer to tape/digital? I would assume that the tracks would follow suit on any media...

I could name tracks verbatim on vinyl, but got really hoodwinked when they came out on CD...Sometimes, it doesn't sound right either...but it is what it is, and I'm not gonna stop listening because of THAT hahaha

I have all the vinyl, including VT and Feedback,
except for the German RTB and the Brazilian maybe? Counterparts.
I even have Chonicles on 3 lp's.

Course this could be why I work two jobs......

I dig Jacob's Ladder, it's the last true prog gem that Rush recorded. It's one of their more popular and talked about songs it seems. There is also a movie by that name, from 1990, starring Tim Robbins. A horror movie about a guy who starts seeing demons everywhere and stuff.

Yeah, it's a very cool song. I miss hearing it live.

As far as buying Rush LP's (as opposed to CD's), I did it up through Power Windows. After that I never bothered again.
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?

Yes I do.
I even have Chronicles on vinyl too.
Don't have CP or RTB though.

Dream Theater played it live once, in Toronto March 2002. Wish I'd been there. I sure am gonna check out their new DVD with live performances. 8)
