RUSH
Juvenile Delinquents [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Agora Ballroom, Cleveland, Ohio; April 7, 1975 (Broadcast May 15, 1975?). Very good FM.

Fans can brace themselves for a Rush onslaught in 2015, though some might call it reinventing the wheel - 14 albums from the group’s Mercury era will be reissued on high-quality vinyl with a download card for digital audio version. There will also be high-resolution digital audio releases and three titles will be released on Blu-ray Pure Audio. (Click here for release details.)

Meanwhile, thanks to supmon for sharing this Cleveland show on the net.

This is a great CD. It is a complete concert, as opposed to the partial versions of this show that are floating around. The sound quality is excellent. There are two minor flaws: a very small cut in In The Mood, and another during Alex’s unaccompanied solo in Bad Boy. Otherwise, it is all here. This CD should be in everyone’s collection. - Greg’s Notes, 2001

In my extensive quest to decide on the best sounding live show of each tour, I bestow the title of best FBN concert to this little beauty. A few hisses ‘n’ pops here and there, but that’s almost forgiveable, especially considering the record’s age, and the fact that the guys played so well. Particular highlights for me include a raucous full version of Beneath, Between and Behind, and my personal favourite rendition of Working man - a shame it’s got a little cut towards the end. - Remmy, 2010

  4. Did I just hear a Zeppelin tease in Working Man? Around 6:30?

  5. I detest it when a live rock performance sounds exactly like the studio version. I want a different feel, fresh solo improvisations, and even a couple of vocal melody alterations can prove to be interesting. Alas, on this version of Working Man, Geddy seems to be inventing an entirely new tune, retaining the original words. Much worse, he starts playing with the vocal rhythms, starting and suddenly stopping for no obvious reason. Sometimes he sings staccato, and other times he basically slurs. It sounds like a satire of vocalese jazz scat, and I couldn’t keep from chuckling every time Mr Lee opened his trap. Apart from this criticism, the set is listenable to the extent that instruments are separated in the sound field, and, despite annoying electronic or generational noise issues, the show does represent an enjoyable and historically important era for the three virtuousi rockers who have never heard the words “subtle” or “simple”.
