Editors’ Notes This collection perfectly captures the experimentation and evolution of the Canadian prog-rock legends. In 1974, “Working Man” echoed Led Zeppelin’s overdriven guitar and thundering drums, but just a year later “Fly By Night” melded power-pop jangle with hard-rock soloing. Geddy Lee’s high-flying vocals and Neil Peart’s whirling drum fills and fantastical lyrics came to the fore on “2112 Overture/The Temples of Syrinx.” Then Rush triumphantly embraced synths and New Wave with “Tom Sawyer” and “New World Man.”
