This is an superb Rush soundboard from their show that occurred 21 years ago tonight. The only thing in the stereo recording that is off is the mix up through "The Analog Kid". I may be wrong, and with allergies starting in and stopping me up some, maybe I'm not hearing the sound right?
It sounds as if the right channel is either a little heavier on the balance or else the high's from the drums and some other instruments are channeled to the left channel.
The sound corrects itself during "The Analog Kid" and is balanced better which makes me think this an actual soundboard recording/balance issue in the early stages of the show..
Rush is kicking butt in this Counterparts tour concert. They really sound great and they're not stopping and talking most of time between songs like they can sometimes do. They're going from one song into the next with very little conversation (if any) from the stage at all.

I burned this these same files to disc about seven or eight years ago. Other than me embedding track information, naming tracks and organizing the file set, it is the same files I got back then. I've mentioned I'm jamming on it now and enjoying it. In fact, I want to hurry and finish this post and get it uploading so I can go sit in the living room and enjoy it better! It's definitely not a disappointing sound, and even if there is a slight imbalance in the audio channels early on, it is slight and works out.
I made some LightScribe artwork for the 2 CD's I burned years ago and I'll scan them and add them in case anyone want to use them for disc art.
I don't want to give the impression this show is anything short of superb overall. It is one of the sharpest, cleanest sounding shows I've heard in a long time. But the mix is the one thing I wish was balanced just a little differently. But after the sound changes, you really stop noticing the difference I mentioned and you just enjoy a superb sounding show very easily.
I hope you enjoy the show...
