    My goodness, what’s this their third RUSH collection this year!?! I guess they want to try to make up for the weaker Canadian dollar, or should I say, Looney. I love my native band, but, just when I thought Metallica was in full-retard mode with all the crap schwag they push, RUSH tops em’.

    Got all this on regular DVD already. I’ll pass.

    I love Rush’s music dearly and always will. In fact, I just re-listened to Hemispheres the other day for what seems like the billionth time. But they’ve kinda overdone it with all the dvds, collections and everything like that.

    I agree with all the comments posted. I have been a faithful fan since 1977, but they are killing me with these repackaging of DVDs and CDs. I would love to get more remastered RUSH, like ATWAS – the production on that was very muddy. THAT, I would love!

      Agreed! All The World’s A Stage is Rush’s best live album and could use a good remastering job.

      All the Worlds a stage was remastered on CD about a decade ago. Great sound IMO.

    my lord, talk about duplication overload.
