Great show? Other than a little bit of distortion at the high end the only problems are the guys talking and yelling between songs (and a bit of commentary here and there) Other than that a VERY listenable show.

I would call this the Alex Freak Out part 2? he can he heard yelling at the end of Temples of Syrinx "We are the priests? WHAT ARE WE DOING? Of the temples of syrinx?Our Great computers??WHAT DO THEY DO?? We are the Priests ?? THAT'S OUR JOB!" More funny stuff!!

The band plays pretty well for so early in the tour (who would expect less!) A few "technical difficulties" plague them but they recover rather well! One "clam" that sticks out is Neil comes in early in 2112! There are better shows from this tour out there, but this is a good one to have!    (1999-04-01)

One of the earliest known shows from the HYF tour and a very rare performance in Nova Scotia. This was mastered from the original concert master tapes so the sound is as good as it will get for this show. The sound itself is very good, the only problems being the two tapers yelling at the end and the beginnings of songs (ie, Woohoo stuff). Definitely a very listenable show and not too distant with good over all dynamics. The crowd is very up for the show, a rare event in those parts of Canada. For an early tour show, the band sounds pretty tight, though there are a few hiccups here and there. One problem occurs at the beginning of Red Sector A as Geddy has to try 3 times to get the sequencers to start. Geddy then informs the crowd the band is taking a "Seventh Inning Stretch" after Lock and Key. It's kind of funny. Once again, many thanks to the Brian Morgan, the taper, for allowing us to remaster this recording. As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, it's only available via free trade and never for sale. Just visit the trading links section to find people that will gladly trade this recording for free.    (1999-04-01)

This concert represents Rush's last appearance in Eastern Canada. Supposedly they agreed to perform due to an intense letter writing campaign from people in this area. You can definitely hear the crowd's excitement throughout the concert. The tape recorder started off on my knee, due to not wanting to be caught with it, but as the concert went on, the recorder was lifted higher so the sound quality improves marginally as the concert goes on. I had never recorded a live concert before, and with the music being so loud I never expected the mics to pick up our voices, or I would have kept my mouth shut. Unfortunately you can hear my buddy's and I providing color commentary throughout the concert. For the most part the commentary is between the songs, although in a couple songs you can here talking during the song. It was a great concert, and being one of the first concerts on the tour, the guys play with a lot of energy. They really seemed into it. Alex does some goofing around during 2112 as he did in a few other concerts from this tour. They do have a couple problems during the performance, with Geddy forgetting to sign the lyrics of one line of one song; he has trouble getting the sequencer going at one point, and Alex busts a guitar string along the way. Commentary provided by the tapers gives you a first hand account as joints are lit up, an "idiot" throws a glow stick on stage, and a nearby fan throws up. If you can suffer through the talking, the concert itself is great, and the sound quality is good. My hat is off to Daniel for the great work he did in mastering the source tapes. The CD's sound much better than the source tapes.    (1999-04-01)
