Album of the Day

Grace Under Pressure Tour 1984, by Rush (2006): This isn't really an album, so much as a bonus CD that came with the Reply x3 box set. In fact, its the audio from the second disc in the set, taken from a concert in Toronto in 1984. Maybe because Grace Under Pressure was my first "new" Rush album, or because I like the increasing use of synths from around this time, but I've always loved this concert. It's got a then full version of the "Fear" trilogy (including a Count Floyd intro for "The Weapon") and a really great version of "Vital Signs." Only for completests, but they'll enjoy it.
