This is an unusual show. Is is just Geddy's bass and vocal signal captured by CB radio. Guitars and drums are almost nonexistent in the background. Tracks 7-10 on disk two is the same concept but is Alex's guitar signal. If you want to hear an entire show of just Geddy's performance, this is for you.    (2002-10-23)

Brent's Bootlegs
   (Audio - 6)

This is one of the worst sounding bootlegs I own -- BUT WAIT -- It is also brilliant! This concert was recorded using a scanner to pick up the frequency of Geddy's bass. Geddy's bass is really upfront as is his voice. The drums are pretty distant and the guitar is almost nonexistent. Any Geddy enthusiast will love this. You get to hear exactly what he is playing all of the time. Sometimes the scanner loses the signal, but for the most part, you get to hear all of Geddy's ripping bass lines. With the last four tracks (track 7 - 10 on the second disc, from 2/2/92 Vancouver), it?s the same idea, except this time, the scanner is picking up Alex's guitar. These are not complete songs but are still a treat to listen to. This bootleg was made by Prism records for less than a month before he decided to call it quits -- so there aren?t too many copies of these floating around.    (1999-04-01)

Wow, that sounds interesting! I was at the Vancouver show, with my newly bought Sony WM D3 cassette walkman. I missed the first 4 or 5 songs due to pause button malfunction, but got it to the end from row 10 slightly towards the Alex side of the stage. Full range and balanced, stereo, I remember some stuff kind of mixed in surround sound live... My first tape job with my new Walkman. Yay me! Of course that's not exactly what this disc is, but that's what I can tell you that's related to it!   (2007-05-13)

I have made an error in my previous comment. I first recorded Rush on march 23 1990, and that was the tape I was referring to. Sorry. I did record the Feb 2, 1992 show, and I have it in full as an audience cassette master, but I was up on the right side and mid-way back, so the recording is a bit more distant than the row 18 center floor recording of Rush that I made in '90... No, I haven't begun to transfer these tapes to disc for release - yet! I did transfer the 1990 tapes, and they will be out soon. My '92 show is listenable, Sony PC62 > WM D3 cassette master, but like I say, my taper location was less than perfect. Maybe I'm being too hard rating my recording a 7.5. It's actually been a few years since I've heard it, and it's probably better than I remember it. I remember my buddy and I driving to the venue to park, and passing by a bunch of other people. The Red Hot Chili Peppers were playing in the venue next door. It was a cold day for Vancouver, and we were joking about "The Ice Cold Chilly People" waiting outside... "Roll The Doobs!" Primus was opening for Rush. I didn't know who they were at the time and didn't record them. That's the second time I'd almost seen Primus! D'oh! Alex was being interviewed live on the radio during Primus' soundcheck. The dumb interviewer asked questions to Alex live in the venue, and the Primus soundcheck was drowning out Alex' answers! They took a break and continued the live interview from backstage... I have all that on tape recorded in the car before the gig. It's pretty funny. Overall, I'm glad I was there!   (2010-01-31)
