Now sourced from the master, this show only gets better.? This performance had always been one of of my favorite Hemispheres shows; now it is among my favorite shows of any tour.? I just love the warm, analog mix on this recording because the sound is captured so well. The band is well balanced and well represented. The bass is very well resolved, among the best of any audience recording I've heard from the 70's.? The high end is also remarkably well represented. The crowd is nicely behaved around the taper, offering a very clear sounding recording with very minimal intrusion. But there are a few problems, according to the taper:?

On the Rush 1978, I had a 90 minute tape and a 60 minute tape. Right before the show started I inserted the 60 minute tape by mistake because I was looking for security. I was watching my watch for 40 minutes to go by before the flip. When I looked down to the recorder the end eye was lit up. That's when I noticed I put in the 60 tape first. My stomach dropped when I realized I had missed about 10 minutes of the show hence the cut song of Trees. From there on out I used only 90 minute tapes.

Equipment:? Recorder unit: Technics RS-646DS with the Teac ME-80 mics (Same mic as Nakamichi CM300). 5th row main floor right in front of the right speakers. Maxell UD-60 for first tape and UD-90 for second.

This is the reason that "The Trees" and "Cygnus X-1" get cut. There are also a couple of minor cuts in "By-Tor" and "Working Man". Other than that, this is easily one of the best audience shows of the tour and perhaps of the entire decade as well. So if you're like me and consider this the best Rush tour, you can't be without this show. No noise or hiss reduction was used on this production.? A hearty thanks go out to R. B. for allowing us to remaster this wonderful source.? 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.    (2003-09-29)

This release is an update to "Fallen Trees - Ver2.0".? The source was provided by the taper who did the tape > CDR transfer.? The sound quality is quite nice with extended dynamics in comparison to all the other versions in the trading circle.? The show starts off a bit rough with lots of channel phasing, but it does get much better as the show progresses.? Disc 2 sounds much better than Disc One for some reason, with good highs, punchy mids and overall better dynamics in the recording.? IMO, this show falls within the 2nd tier audience recordings from this era.? Recordings from Oslo '79, Vancouver '78 and Hollywood '79 are still the best of the tour.    (2003-09-29)

This is pretty good. I can't say its bad, but it has its falls. The sound is a little low, and its a little hard to hear on low, so turn it on high to hear it. The Trees and Cygnus X-1 were cut, so thats not very good, but the quality is really nice. Geddy's vocals are on fire. Its recommened highly.    (2008-11-16)

I love this recording! The sound is near perfection! The only problem is there are a few cuts (major in "The Trees" and "Cygnus X-1") but nothing really bad after those 2 cuts. The sound is full, bright, and I sounds a little like a soundboard, but has a better, warm, analog feel to it, and you must have it!   (2008-11-25)
