The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 7)

The definitive AFtK tour concert. The sound is amazing when compared to other shows from this tour. Incredibly clear and ambient acoustics will blow you away, especially for a recording this old. It is a bit distant, or at least Geddy's vocals are, though still clear. The hall acoustics would preclude this being a first row, Geddy's side recording. It is an incredibly vivid recording for the time with only a cut during the last minute of Cygnus X-1 and the missing encore being the only detractions. It does sound better than the Niagara Falls show, but not as complete. You wouldn't go wrong having either or both shows.    (1999-04-01)

Ron's Rush RoIO Review

This is one of the best tapes from the AFTK tour. As compared to the ATWAS album, the band is beginning to show more depth, sounding less and less like a three-piece band. This particular show has the atmosphere of a smaller club setting, and the performance is great. Geddy?s voice sounds exceptional here. For the most part, this is an excellent sounding show. All the instruments are clear and well mixed. The only detractor is that the sound fades in and out occasionally. This is a truly great recording, considering the age. Only the very end of Cygnus X-1 is chopped off. One of the best audience tapes from the A Farewell to Kings tour. Unbelievably clear for 1977 technology. This show was supposedly taped in the first row on the right side. 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)

Great Rush Bootleg Series

The best sounding of the AFTK tour boots, approached in clarity and fullness of sound only by the Niagara Falls show from the short Archives tour (which had the same setlist as the AFTK tour but was supposed to be promoting the three-LP set). However, Niagara gets the nod if you want completeness; this boot omits the encore.    (1999-04-01)

A pretty good recording of the guys on their AFTK tour. Anyone who'd like to hear a good boot from this tour should pick this up. It's not that bad!   (2006-10-29)

   (Audio - 8)

Definatly one of the best shows on the tour. I love how great it sounds, but I will admit, it does sound a little distant, but nothing to serious. One serious prolem it that the sound goes from high, to low, and from left to right channel, but it really isn't a problem. Get it, if you don't have it.   (2008-11-17)
