Rush's very Zeppelin-esque 1974 debut features John Rutsey on the drums, pounding along with Geddy and Alex on Finding My Way; Working Man; Before and After , and more. This really rocks, but the Rush sound we know today (and Neil Peart) were still to come

I won't pretend that this recording can come close to the majesty of Moving Pictures or the groundbreaking progressive metal of 2112, but I have a soft spot in my heart for this album. It was my introduction to all things Rush. I ordered it "cold" from Columbia House after reading a brief description (no sound bytes back in those days.) After turning- on some friends, before you know it, there was a Rush explosion in my high school! Sure there was no heroic, inimitable drumming per Neal Peart, but the compositions were some of the tightest pure rock songs I had ever heard (naturally Led Zeppelin came to mind.) I loved the ringing open chords and imaginative solos used by Alex Lifeson, that added a different dimension from the ordinary power chords so commonly used at this time (I quickly adopted this style of playing.) I personally think Alex was the most creative soloist since Jimmy Page, not relying solely on blues scales. This is a great rock album. It is raw and powerful,and contains NO weak moments, but don't expect the grandeur of their later epic releases. Still one of my favorites!

I mainly bought this album for the song "Working man". It took me a long time to hear that song because all the other tracks on this incredible debut album are awesome and I kept playing them over and over. I liked Rush when I was in high school back in the early 80's but I was not a big fan. I first bought this cd back in the mid 90's and was impressed by the raw sound of this album. It has a very different sound than their latter stuff. It's not so refined which makes it very good listening. This album really rocks. Alex is awesome on guitar and Geddy's vocals kind of remind me of early Glen Hughes (Trapeze) and John Rutsy is pretty good on the drums. This is one of my all time favorite CD's.

1. "Finding My Way" A great introduction song with a cool fade in.

2. "Need Some Love" A good tight solid rocking song.

3. "Take A Friend" A good drum fade in and great guitar intro.

4. "Here Again" My all time favorite. A good bluesy tune that really rocks. Great vocals, Great guitar, Great Bass, Great drums. This song is absolutely awesome.

5. "What Your Doing" Cool catchy tune.

6. "In The Mood" Cool bluesy classic rock song.

7. "Before And After" Slow and Mellow for the first two minutes and then it kicks in and rocks.

8. "Working Man" This albums big hit. It rocks.

All the songs on this album have very good guitar works on them. If you are into guitar's like me you will love this classic album.

I`m a BIG Rush fan. Alex, Geddy and first John Rutsy have started one of the many sestions of their career. What better way to start it then "Finding My Way". EXELLENT DRUMWORK only to be picked up, and a little bit MORE added by Neil Peart. "What You`re Doing" is, and shall always be, a LEGEND in the Rush archives. "Before And After" starts out real slow, and picks up. "Working Man" STILL gets played on the radio!

Rush(1974). Rush's debut studio album.
Normally, when you mention the band Rush to any casual fan, they might point out some of their bigger radio hits such as 'Tom Sawyer' 'The Spirit Of Radio', and 'Closer To The Heart. Huge fans will point you in the direction of their most famous albums like 'Moving Pictures'(1981) and the cult classic '2112'(1976). Most every album Rush has ever made has defined them clearly as a progressive rock band, and by listening to them, it's easy to see what makes this band interesting to hear. However, only the debut album lacked the inventive songwriting talents of drummer Neil Peart, and as a result, most fans will disregard the debut upon the mere mention of it. Even being a huge Rush fan, I waited a long time before listening to the debut, fearing that it would never live up to the other albums. So I finally decide to give it a chance. Does it hold up well to the rest of the Rush albums?
Well, yes and no.
Surely it does lack much of the appeal of later Rush, but I find that there is still a lot to like from the debut. The original lineup is comprised of vocalist/bassist/songwriter Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer John Rutsey, and judging by the photos, they were all just kids wanting to rock it out. The band had nothing to live up to yet and didn't have a real fanbase, so they just concentrated on making good hardrock music. True, many comparisons can be made to Led Zepplin here, but they are by no means just clones of that band. The production is typical of most early 70s classic rock bands, and the guitar tone is generally heavy for the time, complete with lots of 70s psychadelia. Instrumentally, it's a very good album. Geddy's voice is at its highest here, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your taste.

If you know Rush only from what's on their 80's/90's albums or their classic 70's Sci-fi Rock albums brace yourself. Their first album is a time capsule from the band's early days when they were slogging it out on the Toronto club scene and before Neal Peart joined and changed the sound of this band forever.

I remember buying this album in high school on a $4.00 budget cassette when I was fascinated with "2112" "Kings" and "Hemispheres" and doing a mental "WTF?!" when I first heard the raw demo-like production and those "Baby I'm in the Mood.." lyrics.

Still its a fascinating look at the band's early influences (Zep, Who, Cream, Hendrix, Sabbath, Deep Purple) and a good look at their early club repertoire. You can really smell the cigarette smoke and spilled beer on this album. Despite silly lyrics and some misguided arrangements (Geddy tries to sing the Blues!) it's still a lot of fun.

Unlike Rush's later albums, this LP was originally self-released on the band's own indie label and self-distributed in Canada before they signed with Mercury in the USA. It was recorded very cheaply and quickly between gigs and day jobs. The cheapness shows right down to that fugugly comic book cover design. But the cheap production works in it's favor giving it a raw punch that Rush never duplicated again with more time and money in the studio. It's still the band's hardest rocking album, and you can bet Metallica was listening carefully to this LP and trying to copy it's super-dry production style on their 80's albums.

The remastered CD is a big improvement over the old 80's vintage Mercury/Phonogram CD (which was hissy and muddy sounding) and a worthy upgrade. And I agree with another reviewer it would have been great to have the groups first single on it as bonus tracks, since its super rare and a lot of fans have never heard it.
