5 stars Go buy it! I was turned on to Rush in 1980 with their album Moving Pictures. Since then I had been a devout fan up to 1991's Roll The Bones. A Show Of Hands is for me their crowning glory to all the albums they made from 1980 to 1987. Even now, I am still amazed how a band like Rush could faithfully reproduce their studio recorded songs - live... and on stage! Now, not many bands can do that. Geddy's voice on stage sounds true to his studio, helium like voice. Alex is still a powerhouse on his guitars. Finally, Neal Peart is in my opinion, the BEST DRUMMER in the world - ever. Try listening to the CD on headphones and you will notice little details, the nuances of the live music staying true to the studio versions. Of course, there are variations introduced by the band now and then, as their antics on stage get the better of them. But still, I love this cd. I'd rather lose their other albums but not this one.
