[edit] Information

This addition to the acclaimed & award winning Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of two legendary albums from Rush. "2112" was the album that saw Rush break through to major chart success, going to No.1 in their native Canada and eventually bring certified triple platinum in the US. "Moving Pictures" opened them to a mass audience for the first time and remains the biggest selling album of their career. It also went to No.1 in Canada and went quadruple platinum there while hitting No.3 in both the UK and USA. The two albums by Rush covered in this film illustrate the changing nature of the band through the 70s and into the 80s. This is the definitive authorized story of the albums. Rush members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart talk us through the making of the albums, together with original producer Terry Brown. "2112", released in 1976, was Rush's breakthrough. The title track, which filled the whole of side one on the original LP release, was a defiant expression of the music the band wanted to make despite pressure from their record company to move them in a more "commercial" direction. It was a gamble that paid off with Platinum sales and which laid the foundations for the sequence of albums that followed with thoughtful lyrics covering many themes and multilayered virtuoso music that few other bands could even dream of producing. "Moving Pictures", released in 1981, saw Rush channel their intellectual complexity and well honed musical skills into a series of shorter more easily accessible tracks. The result was the biggest selling album of their career and a set of songs including "Tom Sawyer", Red Barchetta", "Limelight" and the instrumental "YYZ" that became radio staples and remain fan favorites to this day. The Classic Albums program contains exclusive interviews with band members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart along with exclusive performances, archive footage and an in depth examination of the original multi-track tapes with the band and producer Terry Brown.
