Brent's Bootlegs

This is an awesome bootleg ... too bad its not the complete show. So, you had better look into getting "Cygnus Gold Edition" which DOES represent an entire show. The sound quality on these two bootlegs are identical (and very good). Again, you'll definitely want this show for your bootleg collection but chances are, you're better off getting "Cygnus Gold Edition".    (1999-04-01)

Ron's Rush RoIO Review

The best of the CD pressings of this show; First Time In Tucson is a close second. Both feature nearly the whole show and sound a lot better than Cygnus. This CD gets the edge as it has a stronger signal level and sounds a bit richer, and has an extra minute or so of 2112. It also has better packaging, and is on proper CDs rather than CDRs.    (1999-04-01)

A great soundboard recording from 'The Tour Of The Hemispheres'. This show has been pressed as other CD titles, but this is the best sounding version. It is in stereo and all of the effects come through excellent. Lifeson's guitar sound in La Villa is amazing. I have heard people criticize this show as a lack-luster performance by Geddy but I don't hear it. He is a little pissed at the audience for crowding the stage at one point, but overall his performance is top notch. I would give this show an A+ but as in all versions of this show, Hemispheres has a cut in it. It is the last verse of Armageddon. I timed it and it is a little more than one minute of the song. Also 2112 cuts off early but it is a little longer than on the other pressings of this show. Without a doubt, the best sounding Hemispheres show available and one of the best sounding Rush shows available overall. Check out Cygnus: Gold Edition for a 'sort of' fixed version of the show.    (1999-04-01)

This is the best known recording of the Tucson Show. It's evident that this is from the same master tape that First Time In Tucson was recorded from: they both have the same splice in Armageddon. But this sounds so much better than First Time In Tucson so it must have been mastered from a much lower generation copy of the master tape. This is a really great show and the band plays just great. Geddy uses a cool echo effect on his voice too.    (1999-04-01)
