No breakdown of the lineage was really given for this source other than it was from the Pre-FM disc master. But I did the usual confirming of the audio file set to make sure the tracks were CDDA (or lossless) quality and I created my own ffp (file fingerprint) and md5 (checksum) files and verified them too before uploading it. I also aligned the tracks on sector boundaries since the last track, "Garden Road", failed the SBE (sector boundary error) check in Trader''s Little Helper.

This is by far the cleanest, and as I mentioned also complete, copy of this show I've heard. Reportedly it is directly from the master recording so it really can't get any better than this.
Rush was a new band and this show, as well as a few other 1974 shows promoted by an American FM radio employee who heard them from Canadian FM broadcasts across the border and contacted them, was part of what launched the band's career into its future rock star status. Neil Peart, Rush's drummer, had only been a member of the band a month when this show was performed. Many people think Peart wast a founding member of Rush, but in reality, he wasn't. He might as well have been for his contribution in writing so many of their songs through the years. But the first, self-titled album Rush, released in 1974, does not have Peart on it because he wasn't their drummer yet. What a great addition he made to the new band and such a huge contribution I'm sure nobody could have foreseen at the time either.
I hope you enjoy this very early and superb sounding Rush show...
