Another great release from the GKP. This is sourced from a direct A/D transfer of the original 4LP record set provided to the radio stations for the broadcast which we all know. The song transitions are great...that's what I first noticed. The sound is amazingly good. I have "La Villa Strangiato" from Flood Records, and I thought that this had a slightly warmer sound to it. I just loooove that warm analogue sound!! This show is only available through trading. Please do not pay money for this show. There are traders who would be glad to provide you with a copy via a trade.    (2001-05-30)

An EX+ sounding show from the Permanent Waves Tour. As Marc said above you gotta love that warm analog sound. This show hardly ever leaves my cd player that's how good this show sounds. Listen folks if your trying to deside which St. Louis show to get look no further this is the one to have. Trust me this show will not disapoint.    (2001-07-04)

If you don't have this one already- GET IT! You're missing out, if you don't have this recording. The boys are on fire this night, and the sound is amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!   (2005-10-02)

Wow!! First Rush boot I ever heard! I am now spoiled. The sound is incredible and rivals the sound of the official live releases (maybe better?). For me, this is the defenitive Permanent Waves boot.   (2006-02-02)

I believe this is the best live document of Rush I have heard, official or otherwise. The sound quality is amazing, and the band gives a full-on performance as well.   (2007-01-19)

Okay, the recording is a 10+, but this particular "rip" has a flaw - Let me explain... The vinyl isn't dead center on the turntable! You can hear the thing as it goes around and around that it isn't "plum" - or centered squarely, so when it goes around, the tonearm weaves and bobs back and forth as the record goes round. As a result the sound is dramatically affected - in a bad way. Listen to La Villa especially during the long chords right before Alex's quiet solo in the middle (I believe it's the "Ghost of Aragon" section). You can hear the pitch change quite dramatically. As one with experience toying around with various vinyls throughout my life, i know this to be the cause of the wobbling sound. My fix for this is to widen the center hole of the record slightly to give the record some additional 'play' on the turntable, preferably with a pen knife. Then play the record and center it as it plays - by nudging the edge of the vinyl with the top of your fingernail slightly each time it goes around - and when you know its centered, you're ready to transfer the music to your computer. You'll know its centered whenever the tonearm doesn't bob back and forth so dramatically with each revolution. Okay, armed with sense and liberty, I hope you (the owner of the pre-fm records) will re-release this with far better results. best, Eeklair   (2007-04-24)

This is by far the best version of this show out there! The sound is so clear, and very crisp. And, its obviously not going to be distant, because of the fact that it is a soundboard. Geddy was having fun that night, so thats why he sounded so good. The guitar is loud, up-fornt, and ready to roll, as with the booming bass, and the loud, nice, and notiable drums. Another good this is that most of 2112 is played, which they don't really do untill the "Test for Echoe" tour. Overall, a must-have for any fan, non-bootlegger, or a bootlegger.   (2008-11-19)

I was at this show. Senior in high school and my 1st Rush concert. Ahh .. the memories ! This is by far, my favorite live Rush ROIO recording out there. Great, fantastic quality. Also the best live versions of "2112" and "Natural Science" I have heard yet ! Alex's Crybaby Wha Wha pedal work in 2112 is great. I remember it from that night. I remember me and my buddy's looking at each other going "HOLY S*** !" They tear through "Natural Science". Everytime I hear Geddy on this recording say "ALL RIGHT ST. LOUIS ..... !!!", it gives me chills !! Awesome recording !   (2009-02-28)
