Counterparts, released in 1993, shows Rush returning to their guitar/bass/drum foundation, and becoming less dependent on synths and technology. This can be heard throughout, from the songwriting, to the performance, to the production. Counterparts also marks the return of co-producer Peter Collins, who produced Power Windows and Hold Your Fire before Rupert Hine stepped in and co-produced Presto and Roll the Bones.
The album features the song "Leave that Thing Alone" which earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Instrumental".
Adoring fans turned out in droves for one the few remaining chances to experience Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart performing together in concert during their final major tour which began in May 2015. Along with the R40 tour, the band reissue their studio albums on high-quality vinyl.
Rush announces the rollout of the vinyl versions of six studio albums the band recorded for Atlantic Records between 1989 and 2007. All of the albums are pressed on audiophile-quality, 180-gram vinyl and each include a limited time code to access a high-definition digital download.
As a bonus, Test For Echo features etched artwork on side D of the album which is available for the first time on this pressing.
These vinyl reissues spotlight some of the bands finest work, including the platinum-seller Roll The Bones, as well as the Top 5 albums Counterparts and Snakes And Arrows. Standout tracks abound, like hits Show Dont Tell from Presto, the title track from Test For Echo, and Summertime Blues from Feedback.
With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but also one of the most popular. The RIAA® has certified Rush for the third most consecutive gold/platinum studio albums by a rock band, topped only by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
With a career that spans over four decades, Rush continues to be the soundtrack to millions of lives while also influencing and inspiring musicians and garnering a new generation of fans around the world. The band was also recognized for its immeasurable impact with a 2013 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
