    I bought a few discs today, and this one was among them. A string quartet tribute to Rush!

    Anybody else have this? What do you think of it?

    Freewill is very good, although I am disappointed that the bass solo is not included. Closer to the Heart is very good as well.

    The Spirit of Radio is pretty good, as are Beneath, Between & Behind, A Passage to Bangkok, and Broon's Bane.

    Jacob's Ladder and Xanadu were made to be orchestrated, and these are the best tracks on the CD.

    Yyz and Tom Sawyer do not work well at all in this format.

    I am still undecided on Red Barchetta and The Trees. They seem as if they would work, being acoustic numbers, but the arrangement leaves something to be desired.

    I bought this a few months ago. I had goosebumps listening through it the whole way through. And yes, Yyz and Tom Sawyer are not quite up to par.
     
  3. I can't really take it, I listened to it once, I keep trying to like it but without Geddy I can't enjoy the disk.

  5. Hmm maybe if you could make me a copy of that I would enjoy it more, matter of fact I am sure I would.

    actually, there's a buttload of boots for the mp tour with those songs on there - it's sorta lame that exit lacked them.

    checked this page out -

    this guy's pick of #1 i've heard some of before, a 3rd gen tape, and it sounded pretty close to a pro album, better than esl by miles.

    As a way of explanation for those who recognize that this thread has a certain lack of continuity, I have deleted some posts which used unflattering language to denigrate the band Rush. Actually, I don't care which band had been spoken of in that manner. You may substitute the name of any band you wish. It is the manner of speaking that I decided didn't fit in with the spirit of discussions here.

    Also I have received complaints about these posts. So I'm not the only fuddy duddy here. But the trouble with deleting a few questionable posts is that the thread then takes on a disjointed aspect and becomes hard to understand. But I consider that the lesser of two evils.
