The first Rush release in October is a seven-disc box set, The Studio Albums 1989-2007. This includes every studio album Rush recorded for Atlantic Records: 1989’s Presto, ‘91’s Roll the Bones, ‘93’s Counterparts, ‘96’s Test for Echo, 2002’s Vapor Trails, 2004's Feedback covers album, and 2007’s Snakes & Arrows. Each album will be presented in a wallet sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original artwork — except for Vapor Trails, which features a re-interpreted version of the original cover.
There is also a remixed version of Vapor Trails in the boxset, but also available separately for fans who don’t wish to double-up. The box has a list price of $49.98. All are issued by the Atlantic/Rhino label.
Rush’s Geddy Lee says, “Vapor Trails was an album made under difficult and emotional circumstances — sort of like Rush learning how to be Rush again — and as a result, mistakes were made that we have longed to correct. David Bottrill’s remixes have finally brought some justice and clarity to this deserving body of our work.
“Every song has been given a new life, from the fire of “One Little Victory,” “Secret Touch,” and “Ceiling Unlimited” to the melodic musicality of “Sweet Miracle” and “How It Is”... these songs have been redeemed.”
