UPDATE - 6/13@11:13AM: According to a couple of threads at The Rush Forum the "bonus CD" is not a separate CD. The songs are tacked on the end of the Grace Under Pressure CD. It still hasn't been verified as to whether these 4 extra tracks are actually "exclusive" to Best Buy. 1:26PM: The bonus tracks are indeed "exclusive" to Best Buy. 8:22PM: Check out the comments for this post; Eric from Power Windows has offered up a lot of cool background info on the 4 bonus tracks. Also check out his site to see his new Rush Replay theme. Thanks Eric!

Today is the day. Rush Replay X 3 is released in the US. If you haven't ordered your copy yet, the best deal going yet is at Best Buy. The price is $24.99 (plus applicable sales tax) and it looks like you get a 4-song bounus CD with your purchase. The bonus CD contains audio versions of Limelight and Closer to the Heart from the Exit ... Stage Left DVD and The Spirit of Radio and Tom Sawyer from the A Show of hands DVD. There are no reports yet from anyone who has actually received this bonus CD yet; we're just going on what Best Buy claimed in their Sunday paper ad insert. See this post for more discussion on the various offers.

A few lucky souls have already obtained their copy. It looks like some Target and Wal-mart stores had them out on the shelves a little early. From comments on the various message boards, it looks like there are no huge surprises. The general consensus so far is that the sound quality is excellent and that the Grace Under Pressure CD track list does in fact mirror the DVD tracklist exactly. As far as easter eggs go, early reports are claiming that there are none. This is a big disappointment to me if true. I'm still holding out hope though. I'll keep you posted as I find out more. And if you've already gotten your copy, please share your opinions in the comments.
