From Rush to R30 - A listening retrospective: All the World's a Stage

Rush - All the World's a Stage: All the World's a Stage is the first live album from the mighty Rush, and it showcases a period of the band that hasn't really been explored much. There are some real gems on this album that haven't been released live since, including Bastille Day, Something for Nothing, and In The End. This album is a little more raw than the other live albums, but shows a band eager to give the fans a great show. This album is a compilation of several high-points of several shows, and is quite well pieced together, as if one were listening to a complete show. This isn't the first live album I'll listen to when I'm looking for live Rush, but it's a fine album, and a great snapshot of a young band getting ready for great things to come.
