Sorry everyone. Not much time or energy for posting. The wife has a broken collarbone and she's taking up most of my time. Here is some Rush news from our friend Ron at surroundablog (see my links). Thanks Ron!
If R30 is any indication, then Rush is becoming more 5.1 friendly. That DVD has good use of the rear channels. Hopefully "Exit..." will continue this trend


RUSH: 'Exit...Stage Left' DVD Delayed - Jan. 3, 2006
According to a posting on the RUSH fan site Power Windows, Zoe/Rounder has pushed back the projected U.S. release date of the the DVD version of RUSH's classic "Exit...Stage Left" concert film to March 7 from the previously announced February 7."Everything's been remixed to 5.1, and that was the intention — to keep it all intact, except for the remix," guitarist Alex Lifeson recently told "So it's available in surround."Lifeson told he enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane while refurbishing the material. "It was interesting to see the development in the arrangements, and how our sound changed over the course of a decade," he said. "I definitely found it fascinating, looking at that. And how the stage show changed over the years — of course, [in] 10 years a lot of stuff changes. But it was a little fascinating to watch that, actually.""Exit...Stage Left" was filmed at The Forum in Montreal, Quebec on March 27, 1981 and was issued in 1981 on VHS/Laserdisk (out of print). The 60-minute video featured the following track listing:
01. Limelight
02. Tom Sawyer
03. The Trees
04. Instrumental
05. Xanadu
06. Red Barchetta
07. Free Will
08. Closer To The Heart
09. YYZ (with voice over)
10. By-Tor and the Snow Dog/In The End/In The Mood/2112 Finale
