Direct Metal Master 180g Vinyl Reissue! Pressed at QRP!

Remastered from Original Analog Masters at Abbey Road Studios!

Caress Of Steel is the third studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1975. The album shows more of Rush's adherence to hard progressive rock, as opposed to the blues-based hard rock style of the band's first album. The album eventually became known as one of Rush’s most obscure and overlooked recordings. Die hard fans feel the record is underrated.

Caress of Steel featured long pieces broken up into various sections and long solo passages. It is often considered notable for the inclusion of the band’s first two epic pieces, “The Necromancer” and “The Fountain of Lamneth.” “I Think I’m Going Bald” was written for Kim Mitchell, who at the time was the frontman of the band Max Webster and a close friend of the band. Track three, “Lakeside Park,” was a reference to a park in St. Catharines, Ontario where Neil grew up and worked during the summer as a teenager.
