I love Rush. I listen to their music pretty regularly. For some reason, I always seem to pull out a different CD to listen to: Hemispheres, A Farewell To Kings, Grace Under Pressure, 2112, etc.
The other day I pulled out Caress Of Steel (thinking, gee when was the last time I gave this a spin). I had forgotten this album was so good. Just 5 tunes, no suprise to anyone who knows Rush.
If you do not own this or like me just haven’t blown the dust off of it lately, you must. Of course Bastille Day and Lakeside Park are the ones we know and love on this disc. Caress Of Steel has so much more to offer.
The Necromancer: This is ten minutes of what built the foundation for the many epics to follow.
The Fountain Of Lamneth: Vinyl buffs?, this is an album side long string of songs run together that show just how COMPLETELY talented Lee, Lifeson and Peart were and still are.
I Think I’m Going Bald: Another great tune.
I love our boys from the north!
