2018 USA 40th Anniversary limited super deluxe edition box set. On MERCURY label. Catalogue No: B0029022-00. Barcode: 602567955818.
Continuing the 40th anniversary album celebrations for Rush’s catalogue, Hemispheres is 2018’s installment. The 2015 album remaster will be made available on CD for the first time along with previously unreleased and newly restored bonus content consisting of the band’s 1979 Pinkpop festival performance. Unfortunately, the Pinkpop recording engineer failed to record the first several minutes of “2112,” so we’ve found an amazing unreleased performance of the song during the Hemispheres tour from Tucson, Arizona in 1978. The third bonus disc is the album newly mixed from the original multi-tracks in 5.1 surround sound by Richard Chycki on a Blu-ray Audio disc along with 4 bonus videos: 3 shot in 1978 as promo videos and 1 shot at Pinkpop of “La Villa Strangiato” with newly restored stereo audio.
