On 27 September 2010, Eagle Rock Entertainment release the next instalment in their Classic Albums series. 2112 & Moving Pictures – Classic Albums will have a simultaneous release on DVD and Blu-ray formats [Cat No: EREDV792 and ERBRD5053 respectively]. These releases are fully authorised and approved by the band and filmed in High Definition. This title features cuts from Tom Sawyer, A Passage To Bangkok, Red Barchetta, 2112, YYZ, Limelight and more.
The acclaimed Classic Albums series is a definitive collection of the stories behind the albums that form the soundtrack to our lives. The latest addition to the series tells the story behind the making of two legendary albums from Rush. 2112 was the album that saw Rush break through to major chart success, going to No.1 in their native Canada and Top 75 in the USA where it would eventually be certified triple platinum. Moving Pictures opened them to a mass audience for the first time and remains the biggest selling album of their career. It also went to No.1 in Canada and went quadruple platinum there whilst hitting No.3 in both the UK and USA. Rush members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart talk us through the making of the albums, together with original producer Terry Brown via interviews, demonstrations, archive videos and use of the original multi-track tapes.
Both the DVD and Blu-ray editions of 2112 & Moving Pictures – Classic Albums will feature over 50 minutes of additional interviews, archive footage and new demonstrations not included in the broadcast version. Rush will be playing Moving Pictures in its entirety for the first time on their 2010 Time Machine Tour and 211 will feature on the new Guitar Hero 6 game released in the autumn. 2112 & Moving Pictures – Classic Albums offers the chance to truly get under the skin of these essential albums.
