Rush will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their classic 1974 self-titled debut album with a new vinyl boxset, which will shelves this spring.
According to a news release posted March 1 at Rush.com, the legendary Canuck prog-rockers will reissue the original Moon Records (pre-Anthem/Mercury) studio album as part of Universal's reDISCovered vinyl series.
Re-mastered at Abbey Road studios by engineer Sean McGee, who has been responsible for the recent Beatles vinyl re-masters, the album comes in a high quality 12x12 box and is pressed on audiophile 200 gram vinyl via the Direct Metal Mastering process (the highest quality vinyl currently available).
The package include a rare reproduction of the original 1974 Canadian retail poster, individual Moon Records publicity 5x7 photos of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and original drummer John Rutsey, as well as a 12x12 Rush Family Tree poster, and a digital download card for a free digital copy of the remastered album.
The reissue will be released April 15 and can be pre-ordered at Rush's official online store at RushBackStage.com.
