• May 2023 Update: Many apoligies for the extended period of inactivity, however many big changes for Rush Archives are now in progress. This should benefit everyone, and propel the site onward in the most realistic way possible. Thank you to those who have been supporting this project, and for being patient with the methods I've so far been operating. Further details will be coming soon.

Interesting to note, while Geddy sang the line "one likes to believe in the freedom of baseball" during nearly every North American show of the preceding Signals tour, he delivers the original lyrics "...freedom of music" for this performance. However, with the other two known recordings from this short warm-up tour, he returns to the "...freedom of baseball" line, which he did not continue into the Grace Under Pressure proper tour.
