"Clockwork Angels Tour" Vinyl Release

Rush's 2014 live album "Clockwork Angels Tour" is the latest live album set coming to vinyl for the first time. The 5 LP release is expected to hit stores October 11 (preorder now).
"This live 5LP set is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and includes an etching on the flipside.

The set comes packaged in a two-piece telescopic box with a full-color booklet, and a code to download a high-definition digital version of the album.

The band recorded concerts in 2012 in Phoenix, Dallas and San Antonio for a live album, and this set includes all 31 tracks from those recordings. This vinyl set also features the bonus tracks from the original CD release, including a version of the classic “Limelight” that the band recorded during soundcheck." - Rush.com, August 19, 2019

Geddy Lee: Clockwork Angel - Worn and Wound

We all know about Geddy's wine and bass collections, but did you know he also is an avid collector of watches?   That's the topic of a new interview titled "Geddy Lee: Clockwork Angel" posted today at WornAndWound.com. 
"I was in Switzerland many years ago and I happened upon this cool watch shop, and a great conversation with a very nice chap there led to my leaving with a black bezel Rolex GMT from 1968, and that was really my gateway watch. I kept that watch for many years. Over the years, I’d received a few great watches as gifts, including a solid gold Universal Genève Compax. Later I picked up a ‘68 Jaeger LeCoultre Speedbeat, and it was then that I started threatening an interest in really collecting watches."

Help Promote Our Book at Cinema Strangiato! Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth The Official Touring History

Time for a little bit of grass roots advertising!  We're asking if readers of this website who attend next week's showing of Cinema Strangiato can promote our upcoming book, Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth The Official Touring History.

Specifically, this would mean printing some fliers and handing them out at your local Cinema Strangiato theater (before and/or after the movie).

For various logistical reasons, we weren't able to get an ad in as part of the film, and there's no budget available right now to do something more elaborate, so this is just us scrambling (since the opportunity here to get word out seems too good to pass up).

We wish we could offer something in exchange for helping, but unfortunately this is just a shout out for volunteer help / good will (so again, no worries if no one wants to do this!).   Click here for a PDF of the flier.  Thank you in advance for your help, you are very greatly appreciated!

Cheers!
Skip Daly and Eric Hansen
