Rush's vinyl re-issue campaign continues today with the release of the band's 3rd live album, 1989's A Show of Hands. From the editorial description:

Remastered on 200-gram, heavyweight vinyl at legendary Abbey Road, all from original analogue masters, RUSH's third live album, A Show Of Hands, was released in January, 1989. A Show of Hands was recorded while on tour in Birmingham, U.K., New Orleans, Phoenix and San Diego during the 1988 Hold Your Fire tour, as well as in the Meadowlands in New Jersey during the 1986 Power Windows tour. The opening track 'Intro' features the Three Stooges theme song, 'Three Blind Mice,' a song the band used to open many of their concerts during the '80s. The album reached #21 in Billboard, going gold, with the singles including 'Closer to the Heart' and 12-inch promos of 'Mission' and 'Marathon.'

Rush has been releasing their entire back catalog on vinyl throughout 2015. Next up are Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows, both of which are slated to release next Friday, December 18th.
