Two 1976 Rush Albums Reissued in Remastered Vinyl Editions

Rush: All the World’s a Stage & 2112

The year’s vinyl releases of remastered Rush albums continues with the double live album All the World’s a Stage and the legendary 2112, both from 1976.

Both albums from the prog-rock trio of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart were remastered at Abbey Road Studios using the Direct to Metal Mastering process and pressed on 200-gram vinyl. As a bonus, All the World’s a Stage retains its original format, created for use on auto-change continual play turntables. That means on disc features sides A and D and the other includes sides B and C.

2112 is often considered Rush’s definitive album, and the vinyl reissue adds something extra to the record’s packaging — a custom, hand-etched hologram of the “Red Star of the Federation” pressed in the album’s side two wax runout, which can be seen when any focused source of light (like an LED) is trained on it from above as the record spins.

The hologram is pretty cool:

All the World’s a Stage is available here and 2112 is available here.

I wish all music from the 1960’s and 1970’s where remastered , the first band that caught my attention at 17 was Grand Funk Railroad . From then on the Rock Bug bit me, I still have scars from back then, its the old sound wounds that never heal ,they only get better with time

If I had more time to listen, I’d be really tempted to get a turntable an vinyl again. It definitely sounds great, and the mixes seem better.

A lot of the original albums actually sound very good, if better equipment is used to play them. Some, not so much. A lot of the people who say that vinyl sucks should listen with better audio equipment, IMO. It really makes a difference.
