Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) album for sale by Rush was released Feb 11, 2003 on the Universal Distribution label. Canadian power trio Rush defined a new genre by combining hard rock's relentless drive and screeching vocals with progressive rock's jaw-dropping chops and quasi-mystical/science fiction lyrical sensibility. In the process, the group also spawned two musical revolutionaries in Geddy Lee and Neil Peart, both of whose influence is still felt by anyone who even thinks about playing in a hard rock rhythm section. Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) CD music contains a single disc with 16 songs. ...See Full Description

The talent that Rush has is amazing! Alex Lifeson should do a instrumental album, he's amazing! The solo in "Working Man" is definately one of the greatest solos of all time... and "2112 Overture/The Temples of Syrinx" is a masterpeice! They are one of the most talented bands ever, right there next to Zeppelin and Sabbath.

||spirit of radio indeed....|
i bought this album because of the track "the spirit of radio" (my favorite rush track) but i had also heard "closer to the heart" "tom sawyer", and "limelight".

||Nothing But The "Radio" Hits!|
I know Rush have almost been as guilty as compiling themselves to death like KISS, Deep Purple, Scorpions, Cheap Trick and may other bands, but this CD has all of the band's key radio hits and "radio" is the operative word.
By George (New York)
This is just what you would expect. Great songs from a Great band. The only thing that is missing from the song list that I love from this band is Mystic Rythems.
By a reviewer (Muncie, IN. USA)
PROS: Decent amount of tracks for a single CD. All of the songs are really good. Rush really has a chance to show off their talent.

Very Best Of CDs (2003) Top Seller
Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) buy CD music THE VERY BEST OF includes a 46-page booklet with pictures and track information.
"Hole In The World" was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
The Eagles' founders Don Henley and Glenn Frey were forthright in their desire to bring then-emerging country rock to new heights of commercial success. Formed in Los Angeles in 1971, they learned from their observations of the scene around them, and subsequently took their music to the top of the charts. They stayed there throughout the '70s, becoming synonymous with the sound of Southern California rock.
The band's first hit was with a song by Jackson Browne, and their first album also included a cover of "Ol' 55" by Tom Waits, but the bulk of the material they're known for was penned by Henley and Frey. This two-disc set wisely expands the original VERY BEST OF collection with important album tracks that have also long been band staples and favorites (such as the aforementioned Waits tune and a number of other songs from their pre-platinum first three releases). As is often the common industry-wide practice, there's also a new song, "Hole in the World."
A 2-CD retrospective from the multiplatinum superstars whose 1976 "Greatest Hits" is the #1 album of all time! Special Limited Edition bonus DVD included with a music video, outtakes from the video and backstage pass to Farewell 1.
Initial pressings included a bonus DVD.

Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) CD music Initial pressings of THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION included a limited edition bonus disc featuring four previously unreleased tracks.
Recorded between November 1964 and June 1982. Includes liner notes by Matt Kent and Andy Neill.
When it comes to a ground-breaking, iconic band like the Who, dubbing an anthology THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION is no small claim. The kicker here is that it happens to be the truth. Without venturing into the realm of the box set, there's never been such a definitive batch of Who tunes all under one roof before. Virtually all the bases are covered here, from such attitude-laden mid-'60s mod anthems as "My Generation" and "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" to the conceptual expansiveness of TOMMY-era tunes ("I'm Free," "See Me Feel Me"). We get the full-on long-haired, bare-chested glory of the early '70s ("Won't Get Fooled Again") as well as the tapered, synth-flecked smartness of the early '80s ("Eminence Front," "You Better You Bet." For someone looking for an entry point into the work of this larger-than-life group, or just somebody who wants a great all-purpose who disc, THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION is truly a case of truth in advertising. Get one.

90125 CD (1983)
Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) songs When Jon Anderson rejoined Yes after DRAMA, he was inserting himself into an unusual situation. Keyboardist Geoff Downes and longtime guitarist Steve Howe had left to form Asia with prog rock vets John Wetton (King Crimson, Roxy Music etc.) and Carl Palmer (ELP). Chris Squire and Alan White brought original Yes keysman Tony Kaye back and recruited vibrant young Australian guitarist/vocalist/composer Trevor Rabin. The quartet had already begun writing and recording, but Anderson was able to insert himself into the proceedings with such ease that the new combination sounds completely natural on 90125.
Mostly, the band was concerned with trimming the musical fat to keep pace with the onslaught of the 1980s. Thus, tracks like "Owner of a Lonely Heart" and "City of Love" are full of samples, splices and almost funky beats and riffs. The unusual time changes and complex riffs of tunes like "Changes" and "Cinema" leave little doubt that this is still a Yes album, but the band succeeds in giving their sound a contemporary overhaul on 90125.
Includes 6 bonus tracks.
Recorded at Sarm Studio, London, England. Originally released on Atco (90125).
Yes: Jon Anderson (vocals); Trevor Rabin (guitar, keyboards, background vocals); Tony Kaye (keyboards); Chris Squire (bass, background vocals); Alan White (drums, percussion, background vocals).

|2112 CD (1976) Top Seller
Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) album for sale 2112 is archetypal high-concept heavy/art-rock, featuring an interconnected suite of songs and a futuristic science fiction-inspired lyrical theme (courtesy of drummer/sole lyricist Neil Peart). When it came to '70s sci fi rock epics these guys were capable of giving Hawkwind and Jefferson Starship a run for their money. The first half of the album features "2112" proper, a series of interrelated tunes that paint a portrait of a 1984/Brave New World-style future, where music and emotion are outlawed. Ultimately, our hero discovers a guitar and uses it to fight the powers that be, all to the accompaniment of vaguely Led Zeppelin-derived heavy rock riffs and daunting time signatures. The final five tunes are unrelated to the concept piece but continue in a similar musical vein, though a little balladry is mixed in towards the end.
Lyricists: Geddy Lee; Alex Lifeson; Neil Peart.
Personnel: Geddy Lee (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Alex Lifeson (guitar); Hugh Syme (keyboards); Neil Peart (drums, percussion).

|Moving Pictures CD (1981) Top Seller
Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) CD music MOVING PICTURES is the intersection between Rush's '70s art-rock style and their sequencer-laced '80s efforts. An incredible stylistic leap for the band, the songs here incorporate reggae, percolating synth and even a new wave-tinged early '80s pop sensibility. "Tom Sawyer," the ultimate alienated-teen saga, is the album's best known song. "Red Barchetta" picks up where 2112 left off with futuristic, sci fi-oriented lyrics. The instrumental "YYZ" is as far into straight-up progressive rock as the band had ever ventured. Things get socio-political on the ominous "Witch Hunt," and a Jamaican flavor enlivens "Vital Signs." The increased reliance on synthesizers and sequencers would later become irksome to old school Rush fans, but on MOVING PICTURES, electronics are tastefully applied to further the group's musical vision, making for what just might be their finest batch of songs.
Recorded at Le Studio, Quebec, Canada in October & November 1980.
Personnel: Geddy Lee (vocals, guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, mini-Moog synthesizer, Moog synthesizer, Oberheim synthesizer, bass guitar); Alex Lifeson (guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, electric 12-string guitar, 12-string guitar); Hugh Syme (keyboards, synthesizer); Neil Peart (glockenspiel, drums, bass drum, cowbells, timbales, bells, crotales, chimes, wind chime).

|Fly by Night CD (1975)
Rush - Spirit of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) buy CD music Rush's sophomore release FLY BY NIGHT has become a milestone in their recording career. Although such future releases as 2112, HEMISPHERES, PERMANENT WAVES, and MOVING PICTURES would be superior albums, FLY BY NIGHT signaled a change from Led Zep blues-rock to more original and challenging material. But most important of all, FLY BY NIGHT was drummer/lyricist Neil Peart's first recording with the band. Peart had replaced original member John Rutsey just in time for Rush's inaugural U.S. tour, and became an integral member by the time of FLY BY NIGHT's recording.
Several early Rush classics can be found here. "Anthem" is a barnstorming opener merging a memorable, repetitive guitar riff with positive lyrics, while the title track is one of Rush's most pop-oriented compositions (second only to future hits "Closer To the Heart" and "Time Stand Still"). Also included are two tracks which turned out to be crowd favorites at Rush concerts for years to come- -the sci-fi epic "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" and the rocking ballad "In the End," while other highlights include "Beneath, Between, Behind" and the reflective "Making Memories." With FLY BY NIGHT, Rush had begun their journey towards becoming one of the world's finest hard rock bands.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Recorded at Toronto Sound Studios, Toronto, Canada.
Personnel: Geddy Lee (vocals, guitar, classical guitar, keyboards, bass guitar); Alex Lifeson (guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, 12-string guitar); Neil Peart (drums, percussion).
