Regarding the 1976, Seattle shows. I was at the October 25, 1976 show at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA. I will never forget that show as long as I live. You see it was the second time I had seen Rush live; the first time was an accident. A friend asked me to accompany him to the March 27, 1976 show at Gonzaga University in Spokane to see Styx. Neither of us knew that Rush existed prior to that fateful spring evening. The shows that are on the Seattle Supersonic and By-Tor's Battle CD's are identical. I was able to play them simultaneously, and they are absolutely the same right down to the little guitar chord ?chops? that Alex does while Geddy is introducing songs. The set is precisely the same as the Spokane show (with the exception of ?The Jam?) and I am convinced that this is the March show. The instrumental jam DID NOT happen at the October 25, 1976 show, I assure you of that without reservation. Additionally, at the October show, Geddy introduces "In The End" by saying "We'd like to mellow out for a few minutes, if you will allow us..." and the crowd expresses it's displeasure at that statement very loudly. Never the less, Geddy is brought a stool from off-stage and he sits to play the first section of the song, then stands for the second part. I have a photographic memory and I also made a list of the songs that they did at the October show, because I was still becoming familiar with their first three albums (I bought 2112 on the Sunday night after I returned to Seattle from Spokane, in fact there was a poster in the window of the record store ? Tower Records on 5th Ave. N. and Mercer St. ? advertising the Rush show that very evening, the 28th of March) and I found my little notebook with that list in it while going through some boxes stored in my parents basement. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is, in fact, the March 1976 show on both of these CD?s.   (2002-03-24)

This show sounds great at times, and unimpressive other times.? The recording level was probably too high, so some distortion is evident from clipping.? Maybe a 6/10 is a bit harsh, but all these same songs sound much better on All the World's A Stage.? Comparing 2112 Days with ATWAS makes 2112 Days sound worse than it really is.? This same show is also available on Seattle Supersonic which sounds better and is the complete show.? Paramount Theater, Seattle,? March 28, 1976.?? Note: this date is disputed. It is commonly believed to be March 28, but the liner claims October 25.? The venue seems to be the only thing agreed on.    (1999-04-01)

This is the only bootleg from the ?All The World's a Stage? tour (that I know of). This is taken from an FM broadcast and sounds pretty decent considering its from 1976. Geddy's voice is in top form and is VERY high!! - I guess I've been listening to the new stuff a bit too much lately. Overall, this is a decent sounding show and is quite an interesting listen.   (1999-04-01)
