1-14 Counterparts Studio Outtakes and Interviews

15-16 Moving Pictures Outtakes

17 First Single

18-19 Roll the Bones Interviews

Same material as Deja Vu with a few notable exceptions. The sound is slightly improved, but it still has that Radio Shack 4 track feel to it. I actually prefer that sound for studio outtakes, reminds me of the Metallica "No Life Till Leather" sound, though leagues better. Also the tracks have been properly equalized. The original seemed to by hastily transferred to CDr as some tracks were much quieter than others and the same for the interviews. Also the fade in's and out's were made more consistent as some were kind of abrupt or not quite finished. Included are some of the only other Rush outtakes around, namely "Vital Signs" and "Red Barchetta" from the Moving Pictures sessions, the flip side of the first single, and a couple of interviews from the Roll the Bones sessions. Now you have a jam packed 74+min recording with a lot of interesting material. As far as the Counterparts outtakes are concerned, if you are familiar with the album, you can hear some differences in the songs. Echo effects missing or applied differently than on the album as well as subtle differences in the overall mix and occasionally a different drum fill or beat variation. Altogether, interesting, but for the serious fan more than the occasional fan. Vuja Dey is the strange feeling that none of this has ever happened before. Given the material, the title fits, plus it is a parody of Deja Vu. 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.    (1999-03-03)

A collection of outtakes and interviews. Pretty interesting. It is laid out so that the interviews pertain to the songs which they proceed.    (2001-06-24)

This is what has been known to not exist in any way shape or form, This disc has some rare alternate mixes of the Counterparts album. How this got out is a mystery, but it's out there and it's a very interesting find! In between the tunes are the odd interview clips from the album release show. Now the mixes aren't THAT much different than the versions that ended up on the final master, but they are different. The sound quality on all the Counterparts tunes is great, so no problems with that. At the end are a few out-takes from the Moving Pictures sessions (possibly guide or demo tracks) but these aren't of great quality by any means (most likely because of generation loss due to extensive trading I'm sure) but are interesting mainly because of their historical value and rarity. Also included is a spoken word reading of the basis of Between Sun and Moon by the author Pye DuBois, which is a novelty in and of itself! Only recommended for the extreme die-hard or the curious really.    (2001-06-24)

Brent's Bootlegs

The tracks that are asterisked are interview / non-musical. The premise behind this CD is to gather alternate studio versions of songs from the album "Counterparts" and mix them with interviews pertaining to that particular CD. Sounds pretty cool so far, huh? Well, it's actually not. At least not in my opinion. If you have never heard an alternate studio version of a Rush song -- you're not missing much. The songs on this CD are so very similar, and sound so much worse than the original version of these songs, that you might as well pop in your Counterparts CD and listen to it. The only redeeming value of this CD is the interviews. There is also a bonus track of Pye Dubois (Neil Peart's occasional co-lyricist) reading a poem that he submitted to Rush called "There is a Lake Between Sun and Moon". Well it doesn't take too much thinking to figure out that this poem was transformed into the song "Between Sun and Moon". It's amazing to listen to the poem read and then listen to the song and see how the song came about. Overall, this CD is only for the Diehard fan.   (1999-04-01)
