• 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.

There is extreme tape flutter/distortion that steadily progresses towards the end of Hemispheres, sounding as if you were passing through the black hole of Cygnus X-1 itself.
Due to this, Closer To The Heart must have been completely destroyed and is missing from this recording.
The last few seconds of CTTH can be heard before Beneath, Between And Behind, when the audio returns to normal.
The recording cuts off after Neil's drum solo, so is missing La Villa Strangiato.
