Many years ago…I think I was still living with my parents…there was an amazing website with mp3s of just about everything Rush that you could imagine. The site went down soon after, and I was unable to download any full concerts. What I did get was all the singles and bonus tracks they had available.
I burned these tracks to a double CD and called it Rare Rush. I printed the tracklist on brown paper so it would somewhat match with Chronicles.
Most of these tracks are alternate versions, some from promo releases. The website had all the details, so they are now lost. However I know some of these are very special versions. “The Weapon” is the famous single version featuring Count Floyd (Joe Flaherty).
The quality varies from track to track depending on the original source (some are from cassette). All are interesting to obsessive Rush fans.
Who wants to read a review of Rare Rush?
