Yesterday we reported that Rush was preparing to release Fly By Night on Vinyl and high definition Blu-Ray audio format in January. Today, Rush.Com have just announced that that is just the beginning.

According to the band, 14 Mercury-era albums will be reissued throughout 2015. From the announcement:
12 MONTHS OF RUSH: 14 Albums from Mercury era for release in 2015

All titles will be reissued on high-quality VINYL with a download card for Digital Audio version, high resolution Digital Audio releases, while three titles will also be released on Blu-ray Pure Audio.

Earlier this year, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) kicked off its own celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary with the reissue of Rush’s self-titled 1974 debut.

In 2015, vocalist/bassist/keyboardist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart, who joined the band in July, 1974, shortly after the release of that first album and two weeks before the group’s inaugural U.S. tour, will see the reissue of the remaining 14 albums in their Mercury catalog in chronological order. Starting on January 27 with Fly By Night, which will be available in high-quality vinyl with a download code for a 320kbps MP4 vinyl ripped Digital Audio album download; high resolution Digital Audio editions in DSD (2.8mHz), 192khz / 24-bit, 96kHz / 24-bit; and an additional Blu-Ray Pure Audio version with 96kHz / 24-bit 5.1 surround sound and stereo. A Farewell to Kings and Signals are the other two albums which will be reissued in Blu-Ray Pure Audio. The remaining 13 titles will be released one or two a month through the end of the year.
Ordering links are not available yet but should be soon for, presumably, Fly By Night and Caress of Steel. We'll have more information as it becomes available.

  1. Seriously, boys? The 5.1 remixes are the same albums as the cd reissues from a few years back. I'd be more intrigued if they'd done different albums in 5.1, like Hemispheres and Power Windows or Permanent Waves. As for the vinyl? It's all down in the basement where antiquated formats are banished to. I'm sure the kids will love this cash grab though.
