Ron's Rush RoIO Review
  

This set features the entire "Permanent Waves" concert. As you can see, Rush was trying hard to play a good balance of music from every album up to this point. As a result, the versions of "Cygnus X-1" and "Hemispheres" are abbreviated. That aside, you?ve got to love this set list! BUT.....This isn?t the best sounding show out there by a long shot. The dynamic range is greatly compressed into the middle frequencies, and about all we hear of Neil?s drums are the snare and cymbals. "Beneath, Between, & Behind" is chopped off at the very end, but this is the only song that suffers. This is still a very listenable show, but the sound is a disappointment.    (1999-04-01)

National Midnight Star CD Bootleg Listin
  

It's definitely an audience tape from all the cheering and yelling, but thankfully has no TALKING during the show. But all the instruments for the most part come through clearly. At one point during "In The Mood" it becomes muffled, like the recorder was covered up. It only lasts a minute or two though. You can, however, hear slight tape hiss throughout the recording, and the high end is a bit clipped.? Just listen to Alex wail on "2112", or the awesome reggae intro to "Working Man" (I wish it was extended)!? The singing on "2112" is also something to hear -- from the AUDIENCE!? And where else can you get the echo from "Cygnus X-1".? There is a break between "The Spirit of Radio" and "Natural Science", probably a tape flip, and the end of "Beneath, Between & Behind" is cut (probably for the same reason). "Jacob's Ladder", however, is complete.? I highly recommend this cd. The show has been traded for years, and it's great to have it on cd!? There are some great song interchanges, and Alex's little Spanish intro to "The Trees" make you overlook its few faults.    (1999-04-01)

Ben's Notes
   (Audio - 7.5)

This is a very good (but slightly flawed) Permanent Waves era boot.? In my opinion, this was their last GREAT tour! Includes the truncated version of Cygnus/Hemispheres as well as 2112!? The only problem is it seems that the source tape starts to slow down a bit during Freewill and continues to get progressively worse through Spirit of Radio (batteries dying!) Xanadu is just unlistenable! But fortunately this clears up almost immediately when Natural Science starts! (Someone changed the batteries!?!?!) The remainder of the show isn't bad! Just a bit of distortion (background noise) here and there, and some weird tape problems (more dying batteries?). There are better shows from this tour out there (but not many!)    (1999-04-01)

The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 7.5)

Sometimes you get lucky and come across and exceptional source.? The sound quality on this recording is very good indeed.? There is some high-end distortion, but nothing that would make this an unenjoyable recording to listen to.? The end of BB&B is cut off and the fidelity during part of In the Mood is very dull like when the recorder is hidden inside a jacket.? Other than that this is an exceptional show bridging the gap between art rock and radio rock periods of their career.? The mix is great and all the members of the band are very clear and you can really hear the echo effects Geddy is using.? This is the first tour with the Working Man Reggae, something that shouldn't be missed.? My recommendation is get one of the better St. Louis shows first, then get this show!    (1999-04-01)
