News: Rush Reissue Debut Album On Vinyl To Celebrate 40 Years

Rush reissue 1974 self-titled Moon Records debut on vinyl to mark 40-year recording career.

In March of 1974, Rush released their self-titled debut through the band’s own indie label, Moon Records in Canada, and quickly sold out of the initial 3500 copies originally pressed. Moon Records would soon become Anthem Records, which launched in 1977, and continues to serve as the band’s only Canadian record company.

To mark the band’s 40-year recording career, on April 15, 2013, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will celebrate with the vinyl reissue of the original Moon Records (pre-Mercury) release of Rush (1974), as part of Universal’s reDISCovered vinyl series. Housed in a sturdy, custom box with a lift-off top, this landmark album is pressed on 200g, audiophile grade vinyl, from the original 1974 analog stereo masters, cut to copper plates using the Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) process at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Rush (1974)also features the original Moon Records jacket art, complete with the original MN-100-A/B Matrix etching, and will include a 16″x22″ reproduction of the first Rush promo poster, three 5″x7″ lithographs of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and John Rutsey, a 12″x12″ Rush Family Tree poster, and a digital download card for a free digital copy of this newly remastered release.

Featuring the band’s original line up, Lee, Lifeson and Rutsey, Rush’s eponymous 1974 debut features eight hard-hitting rockers including 'Finding My Way', the fast-paced 'Need Some Love', 'Take A Friend', 'What You’re Doing', the southern rock vibe of 'In The Mood', and their U.S. breakthrough anthem 'Working Man' which was made famous by Cleveland, Ohio’s WMMS radio station. Other tracks include the more melodic 'Here Again' and the atmospheric 'Before And After', which gradually builds into a burst of power chords and heavy guitar riffs.

Rush reDISCovered LP Box Set will be limited and you can pre-order your copy now through THIS LINK.
