Ron's Rush RoIO Review

This show is unique in that it is the only known ROIO from the 2112 tour. The fellas were warming up for the recording of ATWAS, so we have the same setlist. Apparently, the DC heat is getting to Geddy this night, because he complains about the heat several times. This show gets the award for the weirdest-sounding Rush show out there. It sounds like a soundboard feed, since there is NO ambient hall echo or audience noise. Also, the vocals and instruments sound very dry. The good part is that all the instruments are audible and pretty well-resolved. Apparently, this was originally an FM broadcast, which explains the reception of crosstalk just prior to By-Tor. Also, the sound is sped up quite a bit. There is a bit of controversy surrounding the date/venue listed above.    (1999-04-01)

Now here is a rarity, the only known performance from the 2112 tour. All the other 2112 performances are actually from the "All the World's a Stage" tour. Another rarity about this performance is that it is actually a soundboard FM broadcast! You can tell form the brief bit of radio chatter in between a song that really sounds like an air traffic control booth. It is actually some trucker using the same frequency as the band, you can here the "1-niner" and "10-40" pretty clearly! It is quite funny and occurs between "Something for Nothing" and "By-Tor and the Snow Dog". It seems to be very hot in the venue as Geddy complains numerous times about the heat. Geddy also introduces "Working Man" as "Tuning Man" as Alex is having difficulty staying in tune. The recording has seen some aging from tape circulation, but all the instruments are audible and separate. The mix of the source was a bit compressed, as were many of the recordings of that era. The recording lacks top end in the cymbals, but other than that it is very listenable and sounds great when really blasted! You've got to play this one loud to really enjoy it. I would recommend this recording given the rarity of the show and the quality of the recording. Not to mention the truckers make it a very bizarre recording indeed! In the remixing and remastering of this recording I fixed numerous volume fluxuations, drop outs, and gaps. I can easily say this is the best source I've found available for this show and a lot more listenable than other tapes I've heard. 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.    (1999-04-01)

This night, the guys are playing pretty well. There's a nice variety in their set. Though it isnt the best recording, it's still a nice representation of the 2112-era Rush days...   (2006-10-29)
