Rush fans foaming at the mouth in anticipation of the upcoming 40th anniversary vinyl boxset reissue of the band's classic 1974 self-titled debut album this month will have to wait a couple of weeks longer.
According to an update posted April 5 at RushIsABand.com, the legendary Canuck prog-rocker's originally release date for the reissue, titled ‘Rush ReDISCovered," has been changed from April 15 to April 29 at the band's official online merchandising store Rushbackstage.com and at Amazon.ca.
The 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees recently posted a promotional video displaying the contents of the boxset, which includes: the original art jacket, a rare reproduction of the original 1974 Canadian retail poster, individual Moon Records publicity 5x7 photos, a 12x12 Rush Family Tree poster and a download card for a free digital copy of the remastered album.
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.
