This is an historic date of course as Neil's first appearance with Rush.? It's also one of the "holy grails" in Rush collecting.? The search has been on for the master of this show ever since I-Vent released "First Time" and we knew that a first gen or master source just HAD to be out there.? Is this the Holy Grail?? Nope.? But it is close.? The thanks for this source goes to Tim O again.? When Tim sent me this tape I was moderately surprised to find 2 copies of the same show on the tape.? Both copies are represented on this release.? The first copy was a much much lower gen than the second but alas it was not complete.? The second source also was not complete but did contain another 7 minutes of Working Man.? I played a while with trying to matrix the two sources together, and perhaps even using First Time to make it a complete show but alas the sources are all so sonically different it was near impossible to complete such a "blending."? Since the shorter version sounds so much better, it was decided to release them both on the same disc.
As in First Time, we have the same idiot tapers acting in such a way that only idiot tapers can.? However they did record this piece of history so for that, they can be forgiven.?
A special thanks goes out to Xembla for the artwork.? I have to admit, I didn't think he'd pull off the theme for the artwork but he did and in spades!?
This recording was produced by fans, for fans and is never to be sold. If you like this recording, support the artists and purchase their official releases! As is the Simple Man norm, this show is available on Direct Connect and will be traded freely to all comers. (2005-07-01)

A Recording of Neil's 1st show is of course the reason to get this ,but on a sound quality level this is Very hard to listen to,even in its Remastered state its not very good. I would suggest if your looking for a great quality Rush show from this era,go with the Electric lady show(Dec.11,74)Unfortunatly,if you gotta have this show,this is the Best version out there(so far) (2006-04-06)

The sound, is really bad. I'm sorry, but, it just isn't the greatest recording around. Geddy sounded so scary when he started to scream into the microphone. The only real good thing about this release is that it's really rare. The first show with Neil. For the reasons being, I can recommend this for super-hardcore collectors. (2008-11-17)
