4 stars 3 DVD's taken from eighties Rush concerts.The sound quality and picture quality is superb and the performances equally.What you get is a feel for how Rush developed in the eighties as they embraced the technolgy of the area.For instance by Show Of Hands Geddy Lee is using a sizeable keyboard set up and Pearts electronic drums are also well in evidence.Sadly for fans of seventies Rush Alex Lifesons guitar is barely audible..almost to the point where I wondered whether they were trying to be the eighties equivelent of ELP!!

The most enjoyable music is certainly the earlier Moving Pictures era represented well on Exit Stage Left.I doubt whether Rush were ever better.They stride across the stage and look every inch the massive (despite Geddy's dimunitive height!) prog supergroup.The energy on the GUP DVD is also fantastic as Lee and Lifeson bound around like over enthusiastic puppies!LOL

All in all this is essential for Rush fans.Other prog fans who prefer the symphonic side of Rush may choose to steer clear.

ESL = 5 stars GUP = 4.5 stars SOH = 3.5 stars
