VIDEO: Rush release trailer for Rediscovered LP box set

Rush have released a trailer for the “Rediscovered” LP box set, the upcoming reissue of their 1974 self-titled album to mark its 40th anniversary.

Due April 15, the package features the Rush debut re-mastered at Abbey Road studios by Sean McGee, who has been responsible for all recent Beatles vinyl re-masters.

The Re-discovered vinyl is encased in a 12 x 12 high quality box. Pressed on audiophile 200 gram vinyl on the Direct Metal Mastering process, this is the highest quality vinyl currently available.

This release contains a re-production of the original 1974 Canadian retail poster (only 500 were ever originally printed) and individual Moon Records publicity photos of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and original drummer John Rutsey.

This release also contains a first time ever Rush Family Tree, tracing origins of the band dating back to 1965 and a memorabilia collage of early Canadian and US gig ads, reviews, photos and the first ever Rush bio.

Alex Lifeson recently confirmed the Canadian band will mark its 41st anniversary next year with a lengthy world tour.
