Moving Pictures 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Released Today

Rush Moving Pictures
The wait is over. The re-release of Rush's seminal album Moving Pictures is here!

In connection with the release, Soundvision has posted a nice article titled Rush: The Fountain of Surround which discusses 'Rush’s decade-long journey toward embracing the 5.1 format—even for catalog studio material'. Definitely worth a read (Thanks Ed from RushIsABand).

Part II of Rush: The Fountain of Surround is now online.
