Rush-Sector 1-Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart-Hall of Fame induction


Rush has recorded and released twenty studio albums ( and additionally¬† about half that many as live albums and DVDs) , selling an estimated forty million copies worldwide in a four decade recording career. So you see our obvious dilemma in choosing just one album, or even just one era to feature, as we honor Rush for their long-overdue induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this week. So we polled our In the Studio Rush fans on Facebook, and while there was considerable support for practically any period of the Toronto band’s history, the consensus was for the first half-dozen years starting with their 1974 debut Rush , through formative albums A Farewell to Kings , Hemispheres, 2112 , Permanent Waves , and book-ended with their masterpiece Moving Pictures in 1981, all conveniently dubbed Sector 1 by my guests Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart. –Redbeard
