Rush readies third retrospective compilation
Rush’s third volume in its “Retrospective” compilation series is set for a March 3 release. “Retrospective III (1989-2008)” features songs from the trio’s 20 years with Atlantic Records. It also includes the previously unreleased live version of “Ghost of a Chance,” and two tunes remixed by bassist Alex Lifeson and master mixer Richard Chycki, according to a press release.
The collection will be available in the form of a single audio disc, as well as a two-disc CD/DVD set, which features 10 music videos, three live videos, a rarely televised performance of “Tom Sawyer” and an on-camera interview featuring all three band members.
Both the CD and CD/DVD are available for pre-order at the band’s website. The band also is offering a “Deluxe Rush Fan Pack,” combining the CD/DVD package with a limited-edition lithograph that highlights the albums featured on “Retrospective III.” The first 100 buyers will receive a signed lithograph.
In related news, Rush has been nominated for a Grammy Award (Best Rock Instrumental Performance) for the song “Hope (Live For The Art Of Peace),” which was featured on the “Songs for Tibet: The Art of Peace” compilation.
