Rush fans foaming at the mouth in anticipation of the legendary Canuck prog-rocker's upcoming 40th anniversary vinyl boxset reissue of the band's classic 1974 self-titled debut album can get a sneak peek via a newly posted video.
Posting an update on March 28 to their official Facebook page, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees give fans a visual and audio taste of the multiple goodies the reissue, titled ‘Rush ReDISCovered," contains in a 43-second teaser clip.
Bonus features include the original art jacket, 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.
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.
The reissue will be released April 15 and is available for pre-order.
