40th Anniversary Limited Edition Super Deluxe 180g 4LP, 3CD & 1Blu-Ray Audio Box Set!

Rush releases a lavish, expanded edition of the landmark album A Farewell To Kings - the fifth studio album originally released in 1977, which introduced the radio hit "Closer To The Heart", album tracks "A Farewell To Kings", "Madrigal" and "Cinderella Man", as well as enduring fan favorites with "Xanadu" and "Cygnus X-1".

The Super Deluxe Edition includes three CDs, one Blu-Ray Audio disc and four high-quality 180-gram vinyl LPs. The set encompasses the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 remastered edition of the album for the first time on CD; a complete Rush concert recorded in February 1978 at London's Hammersmith Odeon, newly mixed by longtime Rush engineer and original A Farewell to Kings producer Terry Brown from the multi-track live tapes; four newly-recorded cover versions of songs from the original album by Dream Theater, Big Wreck, The Trews and Alain Johannes; and an instrumental studio outtake of the spacey sound effects the band has creatively titled "Cygnus X-2 Eh". The Hammersmith show features, for the first-time ever, over 34 minutes of unreleased performances including a complete "2112" suite, "Lakeside Park", a drum solo and "Closer To The Heart".

The Super Deluxe Edition's audio content on its CDs is duplicated on its vinyl discs. Meanwhile, the Blu-Ray Audio disc contains a brand new 5.1 surround mix of the album by four-time Grammy® nominated surround sound producer Steven Wilson, along with three original 1977 promo videos from a newly found 2-inch quad video master significantly improving the video quality for "Closer To The Heart".

The Super Deluxe Package also includes an elaborate new 40th anniversary cover treatment by longtime Rush creative director Hugh Syme, who has also created a new piece of artwork for each of the album's six songs, and an extensive 12,000-word liner notes by Grammy®-winning rock historian Rob Bowman.

The Super Deluxe Edition of A Farewell to Kings - 40th Anniversary also includes several exclusive items, including a unique King's Ring, with custom velvet pouch and neck chain; two lithographs with original artwork by Hugh Syme; a special 12-inch turntable mat featuring distinctive artwork by Hugh Syme; and a reproduction of Rush's original 1978 A Farewell To Kings tour program.

Producer's Note: With the Blu-Ray disc you are now able to hear at home what we hear in the studio. This Blu-Ray disc contains all 6 tracks from A FAREWELL TO KINGS in high-resolution 96kHz 24-bit DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround sound along with the 96kHz 24-bit remastered original stereo mix. It is primarily an audio-only disc with basic navigation and song information displayed on-screen along with three bonus videos. The 96kHz 24-bit audio on this disc has 256 times more resolution than a CD, providing greater detail and reproducing the music's full dynamic range, from the softest to the loudest sounds.
