  • This recording features early live versions of The Spirit Of Radio and Freewill.
  • This was Rush's final performance of the 1970s, final unabridged performance of 2112 (without Oracle: The Dream) until the T4E tour in 1996, final unabridged performance of Cygnus X-1, and final performance of Hemispheres to include Apollo (already abridged to exclude Dionysus following the Hemispheres tour).
  • Closer To The Heart was allegedly recorded, but omitted from these available sources before entering circulation 20+ years ago.
  • While the quality of this recording stinks big time, and is missing Closer To The Heart, the good news is I have located an undigitized tape of this concert that does contain CTTH. I can not vouch for its quality as of yet, but we plan to work on a digital transfer of this tape sometime in late 2023.
