One of their most underrated deep cuts.
I’m so old, this was played at my Jr High dances!
I remember 7th grade dance playing Please Forgive Me by this Allmusic suing crybaby.
My first concert was for the “Signals” tour; Neil Peart was just incredible…he will be missed.

Buffy St. Marie’s I’m Gonna’ Be A Country Girl Again.
An absolute treasure. Cost me all of one dollar. I’d better see if I can find some newer tracks to download for real money. It’s the least I can do. I remember finding her so wonderful when she’d appear on Sesame Street in my childhood. I should’ve checked in much more frequently since then.
Signals was the album that got me into Rush in high school. One of those rare albums where I love every track.
I saw them on the Power Windows tour in college.
Speaking of TWO hit wonders in regards to that song from Hot Pursuit with John Cusack. Yes, Friends wasn’t the first one.
Got into them in Summer 2008. I even saw Alex and Geddy get their Hollywood star with Billy Corgan speaking.
One from that seemingly endless supply of cover albums from Cleopatra. The opening track freakin’ slaps.
I love the subtlety of this album cover.
Siri, play me cassette recorded songs off radio that soundtracked my junior high and early high school years.
I’m getting better! It’s not about playing better for me, just putting the fretboard into relationship with basic ideas, like a relationship to the tonic key.
And sight-reading charts, including specific chord voicings, without having to think about “well, I could use the D string, so I’ll go a bit…Eb…E…F OK!”
Just found this one: yeah, this is a well-known performance by Bud and transcriptions abound of this particular performance, some of them accurate, but I was gratified that RB gave propers to Bud.
So many more tunes of Bud that merit discussion. Of course he’s playing on “Anthropology,” here, obviously, but a tremendous improviser and innovator.
Bud’s compositions and head arrangements are worth much more than a look.
From the unfinished Delirium CD
I seem to like borrowing lines or titles from MSTed movies. This is not about giant grasshoppers, but a dying relationship (it was originally a 40 second bridge song between the happy tracks and the sadder ones - once we got to recording it, reworking it, it became a near 3 min tune)
About a woman I met on the inside. I recorded everything except the bass, ran out of money and never got back to the studio to do the bass. (this was also the first time I used a slide… Wade the engineer said, Um, your supposed to tune your guitar to the songs primary key with those… I had no clue, but it sounded fine, so we stuck with it)
