• 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.

This recording compiles all Birmingham tracks from both the audio and video versions of A Show Of Hands, creating the most complete soundboard recording of the HYF setlist as possible.
The A Show Of Hands video is comprised of footage from the three nights Rush performed in Birmingham in 1988, April 21, 23, and 24.
However unlike the video, this recording does not have as many songs missing from the full setlist performed, other than Limelight and Red Lenses.
There are also audience recordings of these three performances that contain the entire setlists.
The official audio version of ASOH features completely different performances from the Hold Your Fire and Power Windows tours, though a few songs are also from Birmingham.
