Rush were the first of the Canadian hard rock trios, blazing the
trail for groups like Rush and Triumph. They were also one of the
first Canadian bands to break into the U.S. market and the first to
achieve international stardom, playing to huge crowds in Japan,
Germany, England, Sweden and across the globe. They were bigger in
the U.S. than their native Canada and they headlined shows with The
Chambers Brothers, Graham Central Station and Ted Nugent and The
Amboy Dukes in the States.
third album Strange
their masterpiece. Cuts like 'Tales Of The Spanish Warrior', 'Land Of
1.000 Nights' and the title track were miles beyond all their
contemporaries in the heavy rock genre. The record is also
technically brilliant and the relatively inexpensive U.S. original is
recommended listening. Comes on 180-gram vinyl in (original-style)
pasted hardboard gatefold sleeve.
