3 stars Similar to Kiss' The Originals, Rush's Archives provides the astute Rush fan an opportunity to own the first 3 Rush LP's as a set for a budget price. If the idea of purchasing Rush, Fly By Night, and Caress of Steel individually does not interest you for economic or other reasons, then this 3-LP set is right up your alley.

Rush, from 1974, features Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and John Rutsey. It is a heavy rock masterpiece. The Led Zeppelin inlfuence is front and center on tracks such as "Working Man", "In the Mood", "Finding My Way", and "What You're Doing".

Fly By Night ,from 1975, features Lee, Lifeson, and new drummer/ lyricist Neil Peart. Their sound is growing ever more complex as heard on the title track, "Anthem", "By Tor and the Snow Dog", and "The End".

Caress of Steel, also from 1975, features Lee, Lifeson, and Peart. The sound is indeed progressive as heard in the epics "The Necromancer" and "The Fountain of Lamneth". Other standout tracks include "Bastille Day" a rockin' history lesson, and "Lakeside Park".

All things considered, Archives is a great 3-LP set, and it would make a fine addition to the collection for the Rush collector/ prog fan alike.
