RUSH - Poughkeepsie, NY 1980

I've spent the last ten days moving, so my ass is beat.

Since it feels like eons since I posted any Rush, a quick live boot is all I can manage at the moment. By "quick" I mean short -- this one doesn't have the whole setlist, and contains a medley broken up into very brief individual tracks (hey, I can't lie -- I'm too tired!)

However, it's worth a DL because the 320 sound is terrific, especially on the Neil solo. Both that and the climactic "La Villa Strangiato" go nuts with the stereo panning effects, certainly rare for any bootleg.

'Nuff said? "Okay, Poughkeepsie!"

My pleasure, thanks for stopping by.

Name that movie:

"Have you been to Poughkeepsie? You picked your feet in your Poughkeepsie, didn't you? You ever pick your feet in Poughkeepsie?"
