It's finally here! The complete soundboard recording of the Tucson '78 show! The version has been digitally remastered from the BEST source that we could find. It's taken from an extremely low gen source-better than the ones that claim to be 1st gens!!! You can find the art in the high res scans section. This JKR Productions release is for TRADE ONLY! Check out the DRE Newsgroup and you'll find several traders/collectors there who will be willing to trade or do 2:1s for this show. Enjoy!    (2001-06-24)

One of my favorite bootlegs! Awe, I love this show, and what?s not to love? The sound is definitely up to professional release quality, the performance is tight and strong and the set list is great! The boys seem to be having a fun time most of the night. There is the point where Geddy tells everyone to move back 3 or 4 times then they finally do, then he has to tell them a few more times, finally someone (I?m told a police officer) gets up on stage and pleads with them and its never a problem again. The situation doesn?t sour the band's attitude in the least; they just seem to be loose and free, having plenty of fun. Not as much fun as "Passage to Oslo PE" and not as good of a performance, but certainly a great one! The part I like a lot is when Geddy says during ?Working Man? ?they call Lerxst the working man, I guess that?s what he am?. The sound is significantly better than all the ?Hemispheres? bootleg! s (even a bit better than ?Passage to Oslo PE?). This show may have the ONLY great recording of the seldom-played ?Circumstances?, so that is a MAJOR bonus. This is probably the single best performance of ?La Villa Strangiato?, so more major points! What?s not to love? This is some really, really damn good stuff! Absolute must have in every way! There is a cut in ?Hemispheres?, the sound fades out and comes back in a minute later, it?s a nice fade in and fade out so the cut doesn?t really bug me. If your going to get one from the ?Hemispheres? I?d suggest this one, but I really strongly recommend getting both ?Every Soul a Battlefield? & ?A Passage to Oslo PE?. Either, this bootleg or ?Exit?Stage Right? or "Target Mass Appeal PE", any of them could be my favorite bootleg!   (2001-06-24)

One of my favorite Hemisphere's shows for many reasons. 1. Its a soundboard. 2. Sound is excellent and a fine performance. 3. It contains the strange "crowd rushing the stage" incident. Geddy gets mad, security steps in. 4. Near complete show. 5. Early enough in the tour that Circumstances was still played. If you're looking for Hemisphere shows, this is a great place to start.    (2004-09-02)

What can I say about this boot that hasnt already been said? It is just simply awesome! This has to be one of my all time favorite shows ever! The sound on it is just superb, this is a show that I just never get sick of listening to. And it also has some Great artwork to it, with beautiful cd labels! If you dont have this one already do yourself a favor and get it.    (2004-09-10)

This is a great show. It's great to hear Circumstances live...I wish they'd play that one more often. There are a few glitches in "Hemispheres" but other than that this show is flawless. An absolute must-have.   (2004-10-03)

This is a classic recording of the entire (and I mean entire) show. So complete that it even starts out with the "intermission" music played over the PA that night before the show started! (This threw me right off for a minute as I thought someone had given me a wrong CD.) Much has been written about the portion with Geddy pleading with the crowd to move back from the stage, so I won't comment on that...although I do think it's funny that he says if the stage does collapse, "it's gonna be a big bummer". Some of the other interesting things I find with this recording include Alex tuning his guitar, himself, onstage, after the first song. (What, no roadie that night Al?) I also like Neil's german count-in to By-Tor: "EIN! ZWEI!" Overall a great recording. Nice and balanced with good instrument separation. Ged's vocals are great and the crew were putting some lovely effects on his voice that night. This is a must for every collection.   (2005-01-12)
