[Rush SHM-CDs at Amazon]

UPDATE - 6/23@4:31PM: Here are some detailed images of the mini-lp artwork courtesy Eric at Power Windows and Jun'ya Suzuki of the Japanese Rush collector site The Sphere.

In a Friday updates post back in April I'd mentioned that Warner Music Japan would be reissuing Rush's first 12 studio albums as Mini-LP Super High Material CDs (SHM-CDs) in June. All 12 in addition to Retrospective 1 and Retrospective 2 are now available for purchase as an import through Amazon at this link. Although these are not remastered recordings, the SHM-CDs supposedly improve the original audio quality through the use of a special polycarbonate plastic and will play in any CD player. SHM-CDs feature improved transparency on the data side of the disc allowing for more accurate reading of CD data by the CD player laser head. The CDs are packaged as mini-lps in cardboard sleeves, faithfully reproducing the original LP's style and artwork. To purchase the Rush SHM-CDs and other Rush merchandise from Amazon, check out
