Rush recently reissued a deluxe edition of their classic 1976 studio album “2112,” which has helped put the legendary Canuck power trio’s progressive rock masterpiece back on the Billboard 200 charts.
According to an article posted today at RushIsABand.com, the holiday season re-release of the album, titled "2112: Deluxe Editions," has helped it re-enter the U.S. charts at No. 138.
Released on Dec. 18 by Universal, the “2112” reissue comes in three different packagings: a CD/DVD collection, CD/Blu-Ray and as a special "Super Deluxe Edition," which includes CD/Blu-Ray and hardbound bookcase.
The deluxe editions include the remastered "2112" CD with 3 live bonus tracks and a DVD or Blu-ray disc with a 5.1 surround sound audio mix, an interactive digital comic book, a new album cover by original album designer Hugh Syme, liner notes and unpublished photos.
The super deluxe contains the CD/Blu-Ray and is assembled in a hardbound bookcase packed with a 40-page comic book representing every song on "2112."
The album helped expose the band commercially in the U.S. and is arguably their greatest achievement along with “Moving Pictures” and “Hemispheres.”
See Rush’s official website for more details.
