Production Notes What a great find for the Rush community. A nice crisp soundboard from the Permanent Waves tour. While it isn't complete, what is present is excellent! One of the highlights would have to be Alex's playing in Working Man. A few years ago I read a magazine article in which the author stated that Alex doesn't have the fastest fingers in the world and perhaps he doesn't but then again I don't think that the author ever heard this show either! Geddy introduces Neil as "Dr. Draino" at the beginning of the drum solo (where did that come from?!?). Listen to this show loud and with headphones. The stereo effects are amazing. Listen to La Villa Strangiato and you might just get dizzy listening to the music move from channel to channel. It truly is great! The nice thing is that Geddy does confirm the location part way through In the Mood. Thanks Ged! From a production stand point, not too terribly much was done to the raw source. The raw source did run a tad over 5% too fast so that was corrected. There were a fix clicks and pops, a few strange transitions and volume fluctuations but those were easily fixed. Unfortunately the source for this show was never given a tape including the first half of the show so unless something comes out of the woodwork, this is all we have. Scans of the master tape are included on the artwork. The master tape is labeled Side 3 and Side 4 and is labeled with a "dub" sticker. Because of how the source obtained them, because of the dub sticker, because part of Side 3 is on Side 4 and because there is a very small amount of hiss present, I believe (for an educated guess) that this is a first generation tape. That being the case, perhaps there is a complete show out there....somewhere in Xanadu. Great thanks goes out to Neph for the quick turnaround on the artwork, to Currygoat for helping with the speed issues, to Cashman for the uncirculated pictures used on the artwork and of course to DKBroiler for the source. Thanks one and all! 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! Released on The Alien Shore - As is the Simple Man norm, this show will be traded freely to all comers.    (1006-12-12)

Well, after 26 years we finally have a partial soundboard of a PW show. You can't complain about the sound, everything is audible and just as it should be. One of the highlights is the incredible stereo panning between the speakers during Neil's drum solo. Clocking in at a mere 37 mins one wonders "Where's the rest"?   (2007-01-09)

Great capture of a great setlist... I feel that the other reviewers are jhust in awe that they finally got a sb from PeW tour that they rated it 10.. There's no way this is a 10. Although i good recording, JL looses "headroom" about 1/3rd of the way through (probably chnages in the casette; and azimuth adjustment would correct it for placyback but since it occurs "mid-song", I'm not sure it would be possible...) There is some cool stereo separation as the others stated, just doesn't have quite the dynamic freq. range I'd expect from a SB. Nonetheless a treasure if you're a fan of this era.   (2007-10-23)

I personally don't think this is a really good recording. The sound, a little muffled, isn't that great. The songs are pretty good, but I just don't think this is a great performance. The performance, itself is a little boring, in my perspective. All the instruments are heard fine, its just not my favorite.   (2008-11-17)
