Rush – Caress Of Steel (1975/2015) [Rock, HDTracks, FLAC 192kHz/24bit]

Artist: Rush
Title: Caress Of Steel
Genre: Rock
Release Date: 1975/2015
Label: Mercury Records
Duration: 45:24
Quality: FLAC 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Recorded: June-July 1975 at Toronto Sound Studios in Toronto, Canada

The third studio album by Rush, Caress Of Steel was released in 1975 and featured the singles "The Necromancer: Return of the Prince" and "Lakeside Park". The album was certified Gold in the US and Canada by the RIAA and CRIA.

Although the band initially had high hopes for Caress of Steel, it was considered a disappointment by the record company. The album eventually became known as one of Rush's most obscure and overlooked recordings. Die hard fans feel the record is underrated.

Caress of Steel featured long pieces broken up into various sections and long solo passages. It is often considered notable for the inclusion of the band's first two epic pieces, "The Necromancer" and "The Fountain of Lamneth."

"I Think I'm Going Bald" was written for Kim Mitchell, who at the time was the frontman of the band Max Webster and a close friend of the band. Track three, "Lakeside Park," was a reference to a park in St. Catharines, Ontario where Neil grew up and worked during the summer as a teenager.

Recorded: February 1976 at Toronto Sound Studios in Toronto

The band's label didn't want Rush to do another "concept" album.

Writing the material took about six months, and the album, recorded at Toronto Sound with Terry Brown, required about a month in the studio to finish.
"We don't want to change what people think about rock & roll, we just want to show them what we think about it." -- Alex Lifeson, 1976

Influenced by the writings of Ayn Rand, the album features the side-long title suite. Based in the future, a galaxy-wide war results in the union of all planets under the rule of the Red Star of the Solar Federation. By 2112, the world is controlled by the "Priests of the Temples of Syrinx," who determine the content of all reading matter, songs, pictures --- every facet of life.
"We've got a big future ahead of us." -- Geddy Lee, 1976

Most fans consider 2112 the band's definitive album. Certified triple-platinum, 2112 is #2 onRolling Stone's 'Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums of All Time'. This newly-remastered edition was remastered at Abbey Road from original analogue masters
