This was the second ever show that Rush played in Europe, at the start of a mini tour before heading of to Rockfield Studios in Wales to record 'A Farewell to Kings'. The atmosphere of this show is just amazing; it features an early version of 'Xanadu' and a great version of 'By Tor and the Snow Dog' segued into the 'Necromancer'. Both CDs are from a very low generation copy of the show and the quality really is good especially given that it was recorded 20 years ago. I think this was helped in part by the fact that the Free Trade Hall is an old Victorian building with very good acoustics and also much smaller than the sort of US tramsheds that Rush play today. 'Hallowed Halls' was limited to 100 copies. 'Sign Of Eth' is the better of the two; it has labels on the disc and proper track indexing (unlike 'Hallowed Halls'). It is limited to 125 numbered copies.    (1999-04-01)

What an incredible show!!! This is a very good audience recording, especially being 20 years old. All the instruments can be heard and the recording retains the power of the band. It is not flat. The audience is a little noisy, but I think it adds to the ambiance of the recording. It is mainly crowd noise, not just one individual screaming idiot. The set is awesome. Xanadu is in it's early, unreleased form. No hints, you'll have to get it to hear what was changes for the final version. By-Tor has the most intense jam I have ever heard Rush play. And then the crowning moment, yes, part of the Necromancer live. This is without a doubt my favorite show. This version of the show is better sounding than The Hallowed Halls and the cassette copy that I have. Like The Hallowed Halls it is not the complete show. The beginning of the show is missing. Overall a great CD but at the cost of a incomplete set list and gaps.    (1999-04-01)

This has to be one of the best 1977 Rush performances ever! First off, you get the full version of the best pre-released version of "Xanadu", "The Necromancer" is played, but not the full thing, but it still is incredible. "By-tor and the Snowdog" is insanity, that is the most hard-rock version of that song, and it rocks. THe sound quality is right up there with The work of the gifted hands-P.E. The isntruments sound really nice, but somethings the guitar is a little bit of the background noise, but still noticable. I highly recommend this source.   (2008-11-17)
