AUDIO: Rush preview expanded 2112 reissue with unreleased 1976 live outtake

Rush are streaming an unreleased live outtake of “Something For Nothing” as a preview to the December 16 release of an expanded 40th anniversary edition of their 1976 album classic, “2112.”

Alongside the title track, the performance is one of two songs on the reissue that were recorded during a series of 1976 shows at Toronto’s Massey Hall that resulted in the band’s first live album, “All The World’s A Stage.”

The Canadian rockers are marking the landmark studio album’s anniversary with multiple editions of the project, including a 2CD/DVD set, 3LP vinyl and a Super Deluxe Edition that combines everything into one package.

The reissue presents a newly-remastered “2112” done at Abbey Road Studios, an additional CD of rare, live and previously unreleased material alongside newly-recorded tracks from “2112” by special guests – including Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters – and a DVD featuring a newly restored vintage 1976 concert recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ plus bonus videos and interviews.

“2112” delivered Rush’s commercial breakthrough, becoming the band’s first album to reach the Billboard 200 and their first to achieve Gold sales status in the U.S. (it was later certified Platinum) while earning the group their first platinum album in Canada.
