Rush's 1977 classic A Farewell to Kings album celebrated the 40th anniversary of its 1977 release this past year and the band released a special anniversary box set edition of the album back in December to mark the occasion. Fans can purchase either a 3-CD set, a 4-LP set or the Super Deluxe set. Earlier today Rush posted an official lyric video for the album's title track to YouTube. The video features artwork from the 40th anniversary edition interspersed with photos of the band and some natural scenery. You can watch it below or on YouTube at this location. The box set includes the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 remastered edition of the album, a complete Rush concert recorded in February 1978 at London's Hammersmith Odeon newly mixed by Terry Brown, and four newly-recorded cover versions of songs from the original album by Dream Theater, Big Wreck, The Trews and Alain Johannes which you can listen to in this post. Rush has also made streaming audio versions of the previously unreleased 1978 live versions of Closer to the Heart, Lakeside Park, 2112, and Neil Peart's drum solo included in the box set available on YouTube and other streaming channels. The set also contains a Cygnus X1 sound effects outtake titled Cygnus X2 Eh which you can listen to here. Additionally, there's a 1.5-minute promotional, unboxing video highlighting the contents of the set which you can watch here. The Super Deluxe edition includes both the 3 CDs and 4 LPs along with an additional Blu-ray Audio disc containing a new 5.1 surround mix of the album by Steven Wilson, along with three original 1977 promo videos from a newly found 2-inch quad video master. The set is available to order at Amazon (3-CD set, 4-LP set, Super Deluxe set) and other retailers, or in stores.
