Everyone would gather, at the 24th of May, sitting in the sand, to watch the fireworks display, dancing fires on the beach, singing songs together, though it's just a memory some memories last forever...

From Rush dot com:

"What Le Studio meant to us, is really hard to put into only a few sentences. It was not only a place where we did some of our best work, but we also experienced many profound personal moments there. To say nothing of the friendships that were forged there that still endure today. Le Studio played a key role in our album recording experience at a pivotal point in our career. We were already saddened to learn of its derelict state a few years ago, but upon hearing that it has now been destroyed by fire, it truly marks the end of an age for the 3 of us," remarked Geddy Lee on behalf of the band.

 

"We not only worked there for months at a time, but we lived and played in the home on the property, separated only by a beautiful lake and the glorious foothills of Laurentian Mountains," added Lee, "it was truly a part of the great Canadian landscape...and literally a home away from home for us. It will always have a special place in our hearts."

CBS's Tom Power spoke with Geddy Lee via phone about recording music and making memories at Le Studio.

Got a really nice 3 pack of Rush posters that I just got done hanging, the Celebrating 40 years is my favorite.

Thanks luvlz2...always loved that song and this is an awesome version!  The solo was a bit beneath Alex's skill level...ha!

A Farewell to Kings 40th Anniversary Super Deluxe

The A Farewell to Kings 40th Anniversary Super Deluxe version includes three CDs, one Blu-ray Audio disc and four high-quality 180-gram vinyl LPs.

 

The set encompasses the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 remastered edition of the album for the first time on CD, a complete Rush concert recorded in February 1978 at London's Hammersmith Odeon, newly mixed by longtime Rush engineer and original A Farewell to Kings producer Terry Brown from the multi-track live tapes, four newly-recorded cover versions of songs from the original album by Dream Theater, Big Wreck, The Trews and Alain Johannes, and an instrumental studio outtake of the spacey sound effects the band has creatively titled "Cygnus X-2 Eh."

 

The Hammersmith show features, for the first-time ever, over 34 minutes of unreleased performances including a complete "2112" suite, "Lakeside Park," a drum solo and "Closer To The Heart." The Super Deluxe Edition's audio content on its CD is duplicated on its vinyl discs. Meanwhile, the Blu-ray Audio disc contains a brand new 5.1 surround mix of the album by four-time Grammy nominated surround sound producer Steven Wilson, along with three original 1977 promo videos from a newly found 2-inch quad video master significantly improving the video quality for "Closer To The Heart." The Super Deluxe package also includes an elaborate new 40th anniversary cover treatment by longtime Rush creative director Hugh Syme, who has also created a new piece of artwork for each of the album's six songs, and an extensive 12,000-word liner notes by Grammy-winning rock historian Rob Bowman.

 

Finally, The Super Deluxe Edition includes several exclusive items, including a unique King's Ring, with custom velvet pouch and neck chain, two lithographs with original artwork by Hugh Syme, a special 12-inch turntable mat featuring distinctive artwork by Hugh Syme, and a reproduction of Rush's original 1978 A Farewell To Kings tour program.

Listening to A Farewell to Kings, I'd love to get the box set or at least the vinyl. The release of unreleased live material like this is awesome!!! Rush treats their fans good with releases like this! Can I get a yeah?

Dan Rather is an excellent interviewer. Just watched the whole thing. Very good. Geddy Lee is so down to earth. Check it out if you can.

Dan Rather is an excellent interviewer for sure, very accommodating and does not butt in and I like that. Very much enjoyed the interview and you're so right about Geddy Lee being so down to earth!

Got a good laugh out of how he got his name because I can totally relate. His original name is Gary, but because of his mom's accent, it sounds like Geddy to him. Instead of Jerry, mine has always been Cheddy. :lol:
