  • This is the first of two consecutive nights Rush played at the Manchester Apollo during the Hemispheres tour.
  • This recording is incomplete, cutting off near the end of Temples of Syrinx, so is missing the remainder of 2112, Working Man, Bastille Day, In The Mood, and Neil's drum solo.
  • There is a very short cut during the end of Cygnus X-1 due to a tape flip, but it does not last long.
  • Circumstances was dropped from the setlist towards the end of the Hemispheres tour for all European dates, which would have been from April 23 and onward.
  • This recording is overall not that great sounding, the band is quite distant and there's a good bit of distortion. It's not awful, but it's not really decent either.
