Rush fans can finally purchase the SACD (Super Audio CD) version of the legendary Canuck power trio’s 1978 studio album “Hemispheres.”
According to an update posted Sept. 16 at RushIsABand.com, Audio Fidelity has officially released the SACD version of the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ classic sixth studio album, after shipping issues prevented the CD from hitting shelves on the originally listed date of August 6.
Rolling Stone ranked “Hemispheres” at No. 8 on a recent Fav Prog Rock Albums of All Time reader’s poll and it became the band’s fourth straight U.S. gold record, eventually achieving platinum status.
