Left Field Media to release CD of 1974 Rush live radio broadcast

Thu, Aug 25, 2011@5:36PM | comments removed/disabled

According to a catalog entry at UK online music store, Left Field Media will be releasing a CD of Rush's live WMMS radio broadcast of their August 26th, 1974 show at the Cleveland Agora titled Rush ABC 1974. This broadcast has been available as a bootleg for many years, but this seems to be the first legal release - at least in the UK. There's no word on whether this will be made available in the US and Canada. The CD is set to release on October 24th in the UK. I should also note that this was Rush's first recorded performance in the US as well as the first recorded performance with Neil Peart on drums, and a young Donna Halper - who was the music director at WMMS at the time - introduced the band. Thanks to GotRush? for the heads up.
