Rush's new R40 tour documentary Rush: Time Stand Still premiered in theaters across North America this evening. Before the film a short interview with Alex Lifeson and Terry Brown was shown where the pair talk about Caress of Steel and how it was the precursor and "practice run" for 2112. After the interview snippet an ad was shown for a 2112 40th anniversary "Super Deluxe" edition that's due to release on December 9th. There weren't any other details given, but Amazon does have some listings (gives the release date as December 16th) along with photos of the packages (2CD+DVD, 3LP, Super Deluxe) and cover artwork posted on their website. The package is also available for pre-order here.
