It’s the latter piece of news that has many fans salivating and Ultimate Classic Rock is proud the satiate your appetite by giving you the chance to win a deluxe edition ’2112′ CD/DVD set.
Back in 1976, the band crafted one of the great prog rock albums of all time. Led by the title suite that opens the album and showing quite the range from the acoustic-based ‘Oracle’ to the more hard rock-driven ‘The Temples of Syrinx,’ the group truly made their mark. After years struggling to find their sound, guitarist Alex Lifeson says, “[This was] the first record where we sounded like Rush.”
The CD version has been digitally remastered and comes with three unreleased bonus live tracks. The extras include 1981 performances of ‘Overtures’ and ‘The Temples of Syrinx’ from an Edmonton show and ‘A Passage to Bangkok,’ performed in Manchester, England in 1980.
As for the DVD, it’s bolstered with a digital comic book formatted for widescreen televisions and a photo gallery that includes unreleased pictures and handwritten lyrics by Neil Peart.
