Has anyone heard about this?

According to the magazine Classic Rock presents Prog, the Rush back catalog is to be reissued in 2011.

http://www.rushisaband.com/display.php?id=2168

Just wondering if anyone else out there knew more about this.  I already own several copies of many of the albums (LP, 8-track, cassette, CD, remastered CD).  Gonna have to be something spectacular for me to buy it all over again.  A lot of speculation of 5.1 mixes, etc.

I knew there was a good reason to wait to add Rush albums.  Unfortunately I already have the only two I was interested in having. Unhappy

Interesting...


I have all of the 1997 remasters and the original master of every album since. If Vapor Trails gets an overhaul I will re-purchase it, otherwise they will have to be pretty darned spectacular to get my money again.

I think there was an issue with the master recording that would make reissues negligibly less horrible. The band should just go in and re-record all of the tracks again.

I agree, except they should just play the album live and release that instead. Those songs work better live (though I suppose that's true for all of their songs).

this is good news, but I bought most of the 1997 versions already.  For me to consider re-purchase there would need to be enticements like extensive liner notes, visual/DVD, bonus tracks, and... of course a sonic upgrade.  

Since Rush releases 4 studio albums followed by one live, there could be box set collections for every 5 discs.

Retrospective 3 has remixes of One Little Victory and Earthshine.....night and day from the original versions on Vapor Trails.
I have mulitple copies of all their albums, what would be of interest to me would be some vinyl re-issue/remasters...I am just on a vinyl trip lately...some new sleeve inserts and such would be cool.

I remember reading somewhere an interview with the band which asked why they hadn't released a 5 or 6 CD retrospective boxset with bonus unreleased tracks and such, and their response was that they didn't have any unreleased tracks.  It really seems hard to believe that a band that has been around that long has no unreleased tracks.  There are certainly some of the original bootleg cover tracks that you can find here and there, but otherwise I am not aware of any other tracks.

I have heard similar things in that the don't really have unreleased tracks from albums sitting around somewhere.

Other then 5.1 mixes or some upgraded artwork and text, I am not sure what the new releases would contain.

As much as I love Rush, asking me to buy their entire discog a third time is a bit much.

Agree on that, if they remix the whole album like that then there will be at least one worth buying again

Agreed,  I would only buy if extra tracks were included and only if quality ones.

To me this "remastered" stuff is a bit of a scam to get a band's fans to repurchase the items.
 
On the other hand, if they do a re-recording of songs that sound significantly different, like Rush in concert did a different verson of Working Man with a Reggae element to it, then I may consider purchasing it.

NOOOOO!!!!  I literally just finished collecting all of the Rush Remasters series'.  Oh well, unless they do something spectacular with each album, I'd only re-buy my "Rush essentials", namely Everything from Fly By Night to Signals.

I read somewhere, can't remember where, that Steve Wilson had approached RUSH to remaster and remix their albums in 5.1.

I think I will just continue to not listen to the pre-Presto anthology in the form I already have.

I wouldn't trust the article. It says that the new album will be out in the spring or summer. That's old news. The album is being pushed back to the end of the year, beginning of next.
