3 stars An excellent capstone for the first phase of Rush's development. The recording quality is what one would expect from an old concert, but the band's energetic, and very raw playing still sounds great.

"All the World's..." showcases many of the bands early hits performed very well, with some great nuance here-and-there which you won't find on the studio recordings. If you're a fan of the band's first 4 releases, then absolutely pick this one up-- it's a shrieking gem of Rush's early sound from start to finish.

As an interesting side note, you'll hear Geddy introducing most of the songs... something he almost never does anymore (of course, do Rush songs need introductions at this point?).
