Rush debut album re-enters Billboard chart

The 1974 self-titled debut album by Rush has re-entered the US Billboard 200 chart at No. 127 following an LP Box Set reissue released last week to mark its 40th anniversary.

“Rush ReDISCovered” features the band’s 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.
