Rush: Retrospective 3 greatest hits album tracklist revealed

Thu, Oct 9, 2008@5:23PM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 10/9@10:45PM: There's actually no reason to think that any of the live videos are previously unreleased. They are probably from Rush in Rio or R30.

UPDATE - 10/9@6:08PM: Aha! Reader BigKev made the astute observation that the tracklist for Disk 1 is for the CD and Disk 2 is for the DVD! Notice how Disk 2 contains all of the Atlantic-era videos. So in light of this, the first disk has only one live song on it - namely Ghost of a Chance. And the DVD will contain 3 live videos for The Seeker, Secret Touch and Resist. These live videos are likely from Rush in Rio and R30.

UPDATE - 10/9@5:45PM: As many of you have noticed, there seems to be several duplicates listed on disks 1 and 2. I'm not sure what's up with that - seems like a mistake. I'll see what I can find out.

As reported a few weeks ago, Rush will be releasing an Atlantic-era greatest hits package on Tuesday, December 9th titled Rush: Retrospective 3. The album will come in both a CD and a CD/DVD version. It's speculated that The CD/DVD version will contain a DVD of the Atlantic-era music videos although this has yet to be confirmed. The tracklist for the CD and the DVD was revealed earlier today and it will contain an few unreleased live tracks - an unreleased unreleased live version of Ghost of a Chance (from the 2008 leg of the S&A tour) on the CD along with 13 studio tracks; and live videos of The Seeker, Secret Touch and Resist on the DVD along with the Atlantic-era videos. Also of interest are 2 remix versions of One Little Victory and Earthshine off of 2002's Vapor Trails. Many fans have been calling for a remixed/remastered version of Vapor Trails for some time now, so it looks like they will at least partially get their wish with the release of Retrospective 3. Here's the complete tracklist:

Disc: 1 (CD)

1. One Little Victory (remix)
2. Dreamline
3. Workin' Them Angels

10. Ghost of a Chance (live)
11. Nobody's Hero
12. Leave That Thing Alone
13. Earthshine (remix)
14. Far Cry

Disc: 2 (DVD - Atlantic-era videos)

1. Stick it Out
2. Nobody's Hero
3. Half the World
4. Driven
5. Roll the Bones
6. Show Don't Tell
7. The Pass
8. Superconductor
9. Far Cry
10. Malignant Narcissism
11. The Seeker (live)
12. Secret Touch (live)
13. Resist (live)
