Tue, Sep 29, 2009@4:50PM | comments

UPDATE - 10/22@5:09PM: From Rush in Rio: 2112, Closer to the Heart and YYZ. From R30: The Spirit of Radio, Dreamline, Subdivisions, One Little Victory (previously unreleased) and Working Men. From Snakes & Arrows Live: Limelight, Freewill, Far Cry and Tom Sawyer.

UPDATE - 10/13@9:42AM: The DVD is now available for pre-order.

UPDATE - 10/1@9:55PM: Here's the sellsheet for the DVD which indicates that the version of Tom Sawyer will include the South Park intro which means it must be the Snakes & Arrows Live version.

UPDATE - 9/30@9:44AM: And here's the press release as a pdf directly from the Rush website which includes a CD cover image and the DVD cover image.

UPDATE - 9/30@8:44AM: Here's the official press release (thanks RushFanForever). It doesn't really reveal any information that we didn't already know other than to say that One Little Victory will be a previously unreleased version, which one has to assume is the the version that was left off of R30 and that will appear on the R30 re-release. Also a couple of corrections to my list below; Subdivisions was not on Rush in Rio and YYZ was not on R30 but will be on the R30 re-release.

I recently let you know that Rush would be releasing a new CD/DVD compilation on November 17th which will include cuts from their 3 most recent concert DVDs: Rush in Rio, R30 and Snakes & Arrows Live. The compilation will be titled Working Men and Music Tap recently revealed the tracklist (thanks RushFanForever).

Atlantic Records will be releasing Working Men for Rush, which is a 12-track performance collection ("Limelight," "The Spirit of Radio," "2112," "Freewill," "Dreamline," "Far Cry," "Subdivisions," "One Little Victory," "Closer to the Heart," "Tom Sawyer," "Working Man," "YYZ") planned for November 17. Rounder will release the DVD title for this one, same date.

Notice that they did not indicate from which of the 3 DVDs each track would originate, although we can narrow things down a bit. Here's the tracklist along with a footnote indicating which DVD(s) it might be taken from:

Limelight - RiR,R30,S&A
The Spirit of Radio - RiR,R30,S&A
2112 - RiR,R30
Freewill - RiR,S&A
Dreamline - RiR,R30,S&A
Far Cry - S&A
Subdivisions - R30,S&A
One Little Victory - RiR,S&A R30 re-release version
Closer to the Heart - RiR
Tom Sawyer w/South Park intro - RiR,R30 S&A
Working Man - RiR,R30

RiR - Rush in Rio
R30 - R30
S&A - Snakes & Arrows Live

Things are still a little unclear at this point, but it looks like the DVD will include a companion CD and that you will also be able to purchase the CD by itself. Amazon has it the CD available for pre-order but it's not obvious whether it's the CD/DVD combination or just the CD.
