(1) 1977-12-10 Canadian Bacon - Platinum Edition
For some reason, the taper did not record the final song of the night which was the encore song "Cinderella Man". What a terrible shame! That is not a common live song. I'm a little rusty on Rush dates and songs right now (I've been concentrating so much on my Zeppelin lately), but I do know "Cinderella Man" isn't heard live very often if at all. I'll have to research a little more and update if I can find a date "Cinderella Man" was played because I seem to recall it was recorded at some point in some show I have.
The audio sounds really excellent in this Florida venue too. There are a few small tape problems but they soon fade and the recording is very enjoyable. As the person I got this show from had noted, it sounds a little distant but it is really clear and the band can be heard very easily and clearly too.
I have some other 1977 Rush shows that also sound great and I will be uploading some of them before long. I think I may have uploaded one a year or two ago already. This is a lovely show from my listening through headphones and my PC's Bose speakers (the $100 kind...not the $100's or $1000's type mind you) and I'm preparing it right now for a transfer to CD-R's and plan to be cranking it up in the next hour or two.
By the way; in case you're wondering what makes this the Platinum Edition as opposed to the first Canadian Bacon release that wasn't platinum. it is the lineage and better sound. I don't know what the lineage was on the first circulated version. And with the lack of real detail on this lineage currently, the only thing I do know is it was sourced from the master (which has been lost) and it is a first generation, cleaner and better sounding transfer of the audio and is an upgrade. So now you know as much as me now.
I hope you enjoy the show...
