Rush / 2112 super deluxe edition

ru21cdsdlx000_0002

A mere four years after the last reissue of the album (which included a super deluxe comic book edition with CD and 5.1 surround sound blu-ray audio) Canadian rock band Rush are preparing an even more ‘super’ deluxe edition of their 1976 album 2112 for a December release.

This new 40th anniversary super deluxe includes two CDs, three vinyl LPs and a DVD and plenty of memorabilia and other bits (tat?) like badges, a handbill and “ticket stub lithos”.

The first CD is the album proper and the second features new cover versions of tracks on the album by the likes of Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nick Raskulinecz; Billy Talent; Steven Wilson; Alice In Chains and Jacob Moon. This disc also features a couple of live archive outtakes from Massey Hall in 1976.

No 5.1 mix of the album this time around, but the DVD does include newly restored video and audio of the Capitol Theatre concert in 1976. Extras on this disc are an in-the-studio-performance by Billy Talent and Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and Nick Raskulinecz along with a 25 min interview with Alex Lifeson and Terry Brown.

The three vinyl records in this set include the album, the covers and the live archive material with side six having an etched design on it. You also get a ‘Starman Turntable Mat’ in the box.

If you order this big box through Rush’s website you get a bonus seven-inch single (The Twilight Zone (b/w Lessons).

A 2CD+DVD edition loses the vinyl (and the tat) and gives you the album, the covers, and the video content for a fraction of the super deluxe price.

The 3LP vinyl edition will also be available on its own and there are various bundles on the Rush store. For extra festive cheer, the band’s website states: “Please note that due to the release date for this title being very close to Christmas, your order will not arrive to you by December 25th, 2016.”

2112 is reissued on 16 December.
