In 1980, Rush released its seventh studio album, and Permanent Waves would go on to be the Canadian prog/rock trio‘s most successful album at the time.

2020 marks the record’s 40th anniversary, and in celebration of that the record was reissued on May 29 in a host of formats for fans of all allegiance levels — Super Deluxe Edition, (2) two-CD Deluxe Edition, (3) three-LP Deluxe Edition, and (4) Deluxe Digital Edition.

A description of the Super Deluxe Edition, which is available via this link:

“The Super Deluxe Edition includes two CDs and three high-quality 180-gram black vinyl LPs. The set encompasses the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 remastered edition of the album for the first time on CD, along with previously unreleased and newly restored bonus content newly mixed from the original analog live multi-tracks by the band’s original producer, Terry Brown. The unreleased bonus live tracks come from three stops on the Permanent Waves World Tour 1980: (1) Manchester Apollo in Manchester, England; (2) Hammersmith Odeon in London, England; and (3) Kiel Auditorium in St. Louis, Missouri.”

In related Rush news, guitarist Alex Lifeson recently opened up in a podcast interview about how he’s struggling to find the focus or inspiration to play guitar since the January passing of drummer Neil Peart:

“It’s been difficult. After Neil passed in January, I’ve played very little guitar. I just don’t feel inspired and motivated.”
