25 years ago today Rush released their 13th studio album, 1989's Presto. The album was Rush's first with Atlantic Records and was produced by Rupert Hine, who went on to also produce 1991's Roll the Bones. Presto peaked at #16 on the Billboard album charts and was certified Gold by the RIAA on January 11, 1990. It was recorded at Le Studio in Morin Heights and at McClear Place in Toronto in the Summer of 1989. The album's first single Show Don't Tell peaked at #1 on the US Mainstream Rock charts; The Pass went to #15 and Superconductor to #37. A remastered version of the album appeared on last year's Rush: The Studio Albums 1989-2007 box set, and an SACD version was released this past summer. Here's the official music video for The Pass:
