Back in December we first announced that Rush and Universal Music Enterprises (formerly Mercury Records) were going to re-release all of Rush's Mercury-era records on vinyl. To date, both Fly By Night and Caress of Steel have been released with 2112 scheduled to be released on March 17th. To help celebrate the re-release of the pivotal album in the band's career, the vinyl edition of 2112 will feature a special hologram image.
From the Rush announcement:As the multi-platinum selling, Canadian Prog-Rock legends Rush prepare for their 2015 world tour in celebration of their 40th anniversary, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) continues its 12 Months of Rush celebrations with the release of a special vinyl Hologram Edition reissue of the band’s epic, landmark release 2112 on March 17, 2015. This special edition will also come with a free download card for the high resolution Digital Audio version.You can see the hologram image in the video below:
Pressed on high fidelity 200gram vinyl, this unique Hologram Edition showcases a custom, hand-drawn hologram of the “Red Star of the Federation” in the album’s dead wax runout of side two. To reveal the spinning hologram, fans can use any focused source of light, such as the LED flashlight on a smartphone, directly above the turntable while playing.
The video is also available directly at this LINK.
