Rush: Super Deluxe CD/BD reissue of 2112 due in December

MusicTAP reports that Mercury Records plan to release a Super Deluxe CD/BD reissue of Rush’s 1976 masterpiece, “2112,” on December 18.

Rush sound engineer Richard Chycki confirmed the news Wednesday via Twitter, writing, “Yep, words out. I've been working on the surround remix of #Rush #2112 for months. Queue rear waterfall. #holygrail”

When asked by a fan if he ever thought in his wildest dreams “when you played these albums as a youngin that you'd be doing this?,” Chycki replied, “2112 ... the album that got me in to Rush. An amazing full circle really. #Overwhelming.”

“2112” was released in the spring of 1976 and landed on the Billboard Hot 100 album chart, becoming Rush’s first album to reach the Billboard Top 100. The band’s fourth album, “2112” was considered Rush's breakthrough as its first commercial success.
