Rush: Retrospective 3 deluxe fan pack; release date pushed?

Wed, Nov 26, 2008@2:52PM | comments removed/disabled

Those of you who have purchased the Snakes & Arrows DVD are already aware that the DVD contains an insert with info on pre-ordering a deluxe fan pack version of Rush's upcoming Atlantic-era greatest hits package, Retrospective 3. The insert directs fans to an online pre-order site which states:

RETROSPECTIVE III, (1989-2008) features the best of Rush from the Atlantic years and is the perfect addition to complete your Rush collection.

Pre-order the Deluxe Rush Fan Pack and you’ll be the first to receive the Retrospective III CD/DVD package, complete with an exclusive live performance, full band interview, and music videos when it hits stores in March. You’ll also receive a limited edition lithograph highlighting Rush’s past albums featured on Retrospective III. The first 100 orders will receive a signed lithograph.

The Deluxe Fan Pack is $22.00.
The CD/DVD is $18.00.
The CD is $13.00.

So according to this, Retrospective 3 won't be released until March sometime as opposed to January 27th. It sounds like the fan pack contains an extra live performance and an interview on the DVD (either that or a separate DVD with the extras) along with a lithograph. You can pre-order your fan pack at this link. From what we know so far the tracklist will contain one unreleased live track (Ghost of a Chance from the 2008 leg of the S&A tour) along with 13 studio tracks. The DVD will contain 10 Atlantic-era music videos along with live videos of The Seeker, Secret Touch and Resist. Also of interest are 2 remixed/remastered versions of One Little Victory and Earthshine off of 2002's Vapor Trails. You can check out the complete tracklist and a full-size image of the album cover in this post.
