The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 8.5)

For many years now diehard Rush fans have praised this show for its sound quality and performance. But for the longest time the only version reasonably obtainable was the 70min production from Syrinx fan label. Even it was plagued with a myriad of problems, understandable for it was one of the first fan label CDR boots ever. At one point I even remastered and fixed up the Syrinx release to make it more listenable. But now we have the full show straight from the original master tapes. And let me tell you, these AudioMagnetics XHE 60 min tapes are really old looking. First off, for those of you that tend not to read the reviews and then ask questions answered in the reviews, there is a small cut in the dream sequence of Hemispheres and a verse is cut from 2112: Temples of Syrinx. There was also some bumping of the mic that sounded just like a record "popping", almost all of those were removed except those that were deemed detrimental to the show.

Now that we have that over, the sound quality is nothing short of phenomenal. The bass is well defined and strong with some of the best mid-bass you'll ever hear on an audience show this old. One listen to the drum solo is almost pure heaven. While the show is mostly EX- grade, there are sections like the end of the concert where the sound rivals the soundboards in depth and quality. The stereo imaging is great and the balance of instruments is fantastic. And the performance? Well for early in the tour, the band sounds really tight and the playing is strong and authoritative. This is easily one of the best audience sources of the Hemispheres tour or even the entire 70's for that matter. The Oslo '79 show is just a little stronger in the upper frequencies, but can't match this show for the quality of the bass. An absolute must have show. Once again, many thanks to Mark for helping us acquire the rights to use the master tapes and to Dave for taping such a phenomenal concert.

Ron's Rush RoIO Review

The sound for 95% of the show is excellent. Everything comes through great with good highs and lows. It is a tremendous show for Geddy, probably the best his voice sounded during this tour. Overall a show I highly recommend.    (1999-04-01)

This has to be up there with A Passage to Oslo-P.E. as one of the single best audience bootlegs ever. The sound is almost like a soundboard, with only a few cuts. The love the warm, full sound that you get from the recording. Suprisingly, Rush still sounds good on their first date on tours. and this shows how good Geddy sounds. Overall, a must have for any Rush or bootleg fan of any kind.   (2008-11-17)

An essential piece. Highly recommended for any fans of Hemispheres.   (2010-04-28)
