A compilation of Rush covers. I went through all the cover tracks at (all Rush fans should go there immediately) and picked my sixteen favorites. I opted against using anything on Magna Carta's "Working Man" compilation. All tracks are as sonically spiffed up as I could get them (they originated as mp3s) -- cropped or faded where necessary, normalized, a little EQ if it called for it. Most of it sounds quite good! And a number of these tracks are just fantastic. That first Tom Sawyer is by a Brazilian acoustic guitarist and it must be heard. All of it is worthy, of course. The only track I seriously dislike is "The Spirit of Radio" -- it's done by some college a cappella group, and you've never heard anything whiter in your life. They screw up the lyrics a couple of times, too. However, it so unique that I really had no choice but to include it. That's why God created the Skip button. :)
