    Default Rush remaster of "Moving Pictures"

    Have any of you heard this? I know there are those on this forum that can't stand this band and I, myself am not a die-hard fan of this group either. I bought it today for YYZ to test my frequency range out on me rig.

    To my delight I found out that this album has some damn good stereo effects and sounds that I haven't heard before.......or at least don't remember. It's been a long time since listening to this album and I have to say that the recording is pretty damn good. Not reference, but pretty close for some of the things I use to test my rig out. I do not recall listening to this album prior to tonight with pleasure. Eh, to listen to it for music was normal. It was an album. Now I don't know whether it's my current rig that brings this album re-master out or whether it's the reissue. All I know is that I was impressed.

    Speaking of YYZ, I seem to remember a long drum rif that went on for some time and it was just the drums. I could have sworn it was YYZ and this album. Was I incorrect? From what I recall, it was a song that went on for about a minute and 23 seconds and then the drummer....and only the drummer went on for a drum solo for quite a while carrying on two to three rhythms at the same time [from time to time]. The album I have (314 534 631-2) does not have the solo. You guys and gals know what I'm talking about?

    Been a while since I listened to "Limelight"........

    You are correct. Neil Peart is the drummer and it wasn't on every selection.

    YYZ was the album right? I know it's on that but I think I'm confusing the tour.

    The album I have is "Moving Pictures". It has the song "YYZ" listed as song 3 at 4 minutes and 24 seconds long, but no drum solo.

    YYZ is track 3 on side one of Moving Pictures. It's one of the tracks Neil usually might bust out into a drum solo during a concert.

    "The Rhythm Method" off A Show of Hands & "Different Stages" or, "O Baterista" off Rush in Rio, or "Working Man" off All the World's a Stage are all good solos from Neil. The one you are looking for is "YYZ" off Exit Stage Left, their first double live album.

    I saw them live twice, and in one of those concerts, in mid drum solo....Neil had a rotating drum set and in mid drum solo, rotated, lights changed and he continued the drum solo. It was a tripping tour de force and I've yet to recover.

    Russ is correct. The drum solos you're thinking about are from the live albums. I saw Rush only once back in the mid 80's during the Grace Under Pressure tour. The drum kit rotated throughout the entire concert. There was an extreme laser light show with this huge video screen. Neil Peart of course performed a kick ass drum solo. One of the best concerts I've ever been to.

    I saw Rush twice. It was the Signals tour and Moving Pictures. Awesome band live or stuido. I remember playing the Moving Pictures 8-track like non stop till it wore out.
    I like everything from Power windows and before...old Rush.

    If you want a good old school taste of Rush, listen to La Villa Strangiato on some SDAs.

    You'll see what I mean...

    Anyway, this thread got me into trivia mode...Does anyone know what the song title YYZ refers to?

    Ahh yes, Moving Pictures. On my list of perfect albums! Limelight is near the top of favorite Rush songs.

    Neil Pert is the man!

    Hemispheres is an outstanding album that never got much respect. It's one of my favorites. I prefer the old school Rush--they lost me at "Power Windows"

    I have been a Rush fanatic for many years, but have not really liked the last few albums they made, until this latest one. Snakes and Arrows is the best album they have made in a long time. The only album from the 90's I really liked was Counterparts. I'm always happy when they come out with a new album, as it is an excuse to tour, which is how Rush really needs to be appreciated, but this tour I was actually looking forward to hearing the new songs live. I was not dissapointed.

    Old school Rush fan as well....even though I would never give up the chance to see them live again...studio albums lost me after Signals.

    I like Snakes & Arrows as well. More of a classic Rush sound.

    They just toured last year. I've seen them a few times over the last few years. Still good as ever. Alex Lifeson has put on a few pounds though!

    That was a good album Steve. Hemeispheres was the follow up tune to Cygnus X-1 on the Farewell to Kings LP. Rush is an excellent progressive rock band and they still kick out some decent tunes, but their earlier material is when the band really shined. Not only is Neil Peart an amazing drummer, the man is a poet as well. My favorite albums also include 2112, Caress of Steel, Permanent Waves, Fly by Night and Signals. I hope these will become available on SACD some day soon.

    Man, what a night and day difference between the recording quality of "Moving Pictures" -vs- the remastered "Exit Stage Left". So much for using that as one of the ways to test my rig. The sound is ancient compared to most of today's recordings. You fellas were correct in that it does have the drum solo that I was looking for. Neil seemed to be real tight that night and that rendition is by far my favorite.

    Another ancient recording by Rush was "Different Stages" LIVE. The post I had made on this got wiped out with the forum last week, but in a nutshell, I completely wasted my money on that one. No fidelity, echo on the bass and the crowd/music seems as if it's covered by two or three tarps. I don't know what the sound engineers were thinking on that one. They must have mixed it on a Bose rig whilst on the 'ludes or some ****. Good tunes, but daggum, you have to listen to it at low volumes in order to enjoy it. Otherwise it just sounds like a Romper Room recording, if you could imagine what that would sound like.

    Went out and got Rush "Gold" as well. This one is recorded pretty good. Not quite up to par with "Moving Pictures" but definitely nothing like the other two recordings. So, I have gotten my fill of Rush for a while. If any of you are Rush fans and you don't have the two well recorded albums, you owe it to yourself to go get these two albums. Screw the other two unless you just like the particular concert and plan to listen to them in the car as they are definitely not worthy of a home rig.

    Tom, I listened to my gold MoFi CD of Moving Pictures last night; I have to say it can't compare to today's recording techniques. It did have some pretty low bass in it, but overall it just came off as very compressed with little in the way of dynamic range (I guess I'm spoiled...!).

    IMHO, they should release, Fly By Night, Caress of Steel, 2112, A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, and Moving Pictures on multi ch. SACD!!!
    Everything after that, I don't care about. Just didn't like the direction they went in. Too...neutral to me.

    Hey there, Rush fans! On the video game Rock Band this week, they released a new version of Working Man that has never been released in any format before. They are calling it the Vault Edition, and it was recorded during the same session as the version that wound up on the cd. The original master of the cd version wasn't available for the video game, so a few months ago a cover was recorded for the game. Then the guys at Harmonix were able to get their hands on this! (the guitar solo is a little choppy in spots because the person playing the game misses a few notes)

    Just picked up a copy of Moving Pictures remastered CD at the local Shoprite supermarket. So far I have (or had) the 8-track, LP, red book CD, and now the remaster.
    It sounds a little hot and (or loud) to me. Actually the red book version was recorded very well, and while I didn't do an A/B test yet, I think I could have saved the $6.98 :)
