  • Review no.84. Originally released in early 1975,this was the band’s second record. I don’t CARE what numerous young {er} whipper-snappers (age 18-30) say about this lp, ‘Fly By Night’ is a TRUE ’70’s progressive/album rock gem. Sure,most of the later day Rush releases are decent (some in fact,are great), but there is nothing(I repeat,NOTHING!) like Rush’s first four albums. What I’ve always dug SO much about this CD reissue is that even though I’m a huge live album fan, I still like being able to check out the ‘original’ versions of tunes like the Canadian trio’s classic rock opener, here “Anthem”, the epic “By-Tor And The Snow Dog” (if this song doesn’t make the hairs on your neck stand up, you should seriously listen to soft rock), “Making Memories”,the title track “Fly By Night” and the somewhat dramatic “In The End”. Highly recommended. What more can I say?
