Rush Vapor Trails Remixed on 180g 2LP
2002 Album Remixed by David Bottrill
With a career that spans nearly 40 years, and music that continues to inspire and influence new generations of artists and fans alike, Rush has become one of the most beloved bands of all time. In April of 2013 in Los Angeles, Rush took its rightful place alongside other music heavyweights when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The celebration of Rush continues with the highly anticipated release of a remixed version of the band's 2002 album Vapor Trails. In 2009, two tracks from the album (“One Little Victory” and “Earthshine”) were remixed for the Retrospective III collection, setting fans into a frenzy in anticipation of a possible remixed version of the entire album being released one day. Four years later, that day is finally here as the remixed album will be available on double LP courtesy of Atlantic/Rhino.
“Vapor Trails was an album made under difficult and emotional circumstances – sort of like Rush learning how to be Rush again – and as a result, mistakes were made that we have longed to correct. David Bottrill’s remixes have finally brought some justice and clarity to this deserving body of our work,” says Geddy Lee. “Every song has been given a new life, from the fire of ‘One Little Victory,’ ‘Secret Touch,’ and ‘Ceiling Unlimited’ to the melodic musicality of ‘Sweet Miracle’ and ‘How It Is’...these songs have been redeemed. Thank you David!”
With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most popular. The RIAA has certified Rush for the third most consecutive gold/platinum studio albums by a rock band, topped only by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Rush’s vast catalog includes such classics as 1974’s self-titled debut, 1976’s 2112, 1981’s Moving Pictures, 1996’s Test For Echo, and 2002’s Vapor Trails. Rush released their 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels, in 2012 via Anthem/Roadrunner Records.
