3 stars The story behind this release is well known. For their 30th birthday, Rush wanted to record a couple of covers as a tribute to bands that inspired them in their early days.

It was meant as a treat for the fans but looking at the ratings here it isn't much appreciated at all. 2.79 at the moment of typing these words. I'm stunned, really. This album contains some of the best rock tunes of the 60's and Rush's renditions are excellent all the way. So, do I have to conclude that many prog fans aren't into blues and psychedelic rock?

I wouldn't want to go in a debate arguing whether any of these covers is better or worse then the originals. The originals had that unique time-stamp and charm of their time, the days when white boys were doing their psychedelic blues and truly loving it. The circumstances here are entirely different, but I still do hear three white boys loving the blues and paying their respects to it in a most genuine and truthful way.

Nicest surprise of all is that everything sounds so entirely Rush. Without changing the songs or arrangements much, these musicians have such a recognizable and unique way of playing that you can identify them from miles away. Especially Geddy Lee sounds amazing, he's sure very much at easy with this material.

Hard to compare this to any Rush album other then the debut. So I'll go for 3 stars, but I love both of these albums a lot more actually. Too bad they didn't include anything from Zeppelin. Good Times Bad Times would have fitted in just perfectly!
