Year’s Worth of Rush Vinyl Reissues Begins with “Fly by Night”

Rush: Fly by Night Vinyl ReissueThis promises to be a good year for vinyl-record loving and/or audiophile Rush fans.

Universal Music Enterprises is reissuing the majority — 14 albums — of the trio’s Mercury releases throughout the year, beginning this month with 1975’s Fly By Night, which was the first record to feature Neil Peart on drums. Bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson founded the group with a different drummer.

The remastered classic album is being released on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl. The Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) audiophile copper plating process was used for the reissue. The vinyl package also includes a download code for a 320kbps MP4 vinyl ripped digital dudio album download; high resolution Digital Audio editions in DSD (2.8mHz), 192khz / 24-bit, 96kHz / 24-bit. For those who prefer other media, the album is also available in a Blu-Ray Pure Audio version with 96kHz / 24-bit 5.1 surround sound and stereo.

The new vinyl is available here, while you can pick up the Blu-Ray Pure Audio here.
