I haven't listened to this show in about a year myself. This show is from Rush's Hemispheres tour carrying over from 1978.
I notice that on the artwork for this show it "Offenbach/Frankfurt, Germany" is listed. Upom more research, it appears there is some controversy regarding tracks 107 and 108. There was speculation these tracks were from Rush's Hammersmith Odeon show in London on the Hemispheres tour. Rush was reportedly doing shorter sets in their shows on the German dates and didn't include these two songs. The sound man recording some of the shows during the tour was suppose to have told people he gave the show too (and how it was suppose to have made it into circulation) he added those two tracks from the London show. Whatever the story may or may not be, the flow of the music is flawless and it doesn't change my perspective on the quality or desirability of collecting this one.
I mentioned doing this a few months ago, but as time has passed and nobody left a comment as if they were interested in it, I forgot about it. But I may upload an excellent 1974 Rush show soon (even today) if there is any interest in it? I've got a few 1974 shows and have even a few more rarer ones I haven't seen anywhere before that I got from an excellent Rush trader the trading days. If you have any interest, let me know.
Enjoy the show...
