The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 7)

Ah yes, finally a new source from the Fly By Night tour. This is yet another FM Broadcast by WMMS in Cleveland. Given the number of early Rush recordings from the Cleveland area, it should be no surprise where Cleveland ranks among Rush's favorite towns to play. The sound is once again very raw, yet fun to listen to. Geddy's bass sounds fantastic tonight, the mix really puts him upfront, but not overly so. The bass lines are fast, aggressive, and fluid unlike just about anything you've heard from this era. Sometimes the bass just sounds devastatingly visceral. Alex and Neil come through loud and clear as well. Alex at times gets a little buried, but from the sounds of it his amp is kicking out on him as you can hear the distinct sounds of vacuum tubes on the brink of being blown. (Listen to some old Hendrix recordings and you'll hear the same thing) This is the best source I've found, but some previous handler of the recording deleted out the DJ break and announcements so a couple songs segue into each other a bit abruptly, at least none of the music is deleted. Another short, but definitely amazing show and a excellent addition to any collection. 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.

Ron's Rush RoIO Review
  

This show comes from a few months after the release of FBN. The performance is what you might expect from this era, but it is special for a few reasons. First, it contains full performances of both "Beneath, Between & Behind" and "Fly By Night." Second, it captures the band in a period when they were using a very raw, stripped-down sound. This was originally an FM broadcast, as can be discerned from the DJ break halfway through. For the time, this is actually an amazing recording. The tape sounds as though it came from a soundboard feed. Overall though, a nice little show.
