Editorial Reviews

While Pink Floyd's widely popular Pulse ranked as one of the bestselling DVDs of 2006, Rush: Replay x 3 is a similarly praiseworthy treasure-trove that's geared more for long-time Rush fans with a working knowledge of the band's evolution. New fans and late-blooming converts are just as likely to enjoy this three-concert package (compiled from previously available VHS releases from the 1980s), but it's the die-hard devotees of Canada's premiere prog-rock power trio who'll get the most from this epic-scale, remastered DVD package. Particularly welcome here are the miniature reproductions of the official programs from each of the tours featured here: "Exit Stage Left" (1981), "Grace Under Pressure" (1984) and "A Show of Hands" (1987-88). With tour-diary notes by the band's illustrious percussionist and co-founder Neil Peart, and often humorous personnel profiles and equipment list by Peart, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and bassist/synth player and vocalist Geddy Lee, these handy booklets offer both tour-related nostalgia and successive glimpses into the band's creative process. Lavishly illustrated, they're also fascinating as visual records of the band's on-stage look, album designs, and related materials.

As presented here (as opposed to earlier releases on VHS and laserdisc), the concerts are intended to complement the same live recordings (with some variations in playlists) that were previously released on CD, and the "Grace Under Pressure" CD, included here as a special-bonus fourth disc, is an all-new release exclusive to this package. If you own them all (and what self-respecting Rush fan wouldn't?), you'll have a near-complete collection of these pivotal performances. Both "Exit" (recorded at The Forum in Montreal, Quebec) and "Grace" (Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto) have been re-edited to an even hour apiece, while "A Show of Hands" (National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, England) clocks in at 90 minutes. While they lack the visual splendor of Pulse, each concert offers an equal serving of highlights, notably "The Trees" and "Xanadu" (on "Exit"), "The Spirit of Radio" and the muscular medley of "YYZ/The Temples of Syrinx/Tom Sawyer/Vital Signs" (on "Grace"); and the stunning Alex Lifeson showcase "La Villa Strangiato" (on "A Show of Gands"). The latter also includes an obligatory and always-impressive Neil Peart drum solo (on "The Rhythm Method"), and while the original video source results in occasionally murkey image quality (as also happened with "Grace Under Pressure" director David Mallet on Pulse), there's no doubt that the 5.1-channel Dolby Digital remastering (supervised by Lifeson and Mike Fraser) represents a substantial improvement in overall sound, especially for those with DTS decoders. For those who think a little Rush goes a long way, Replay x 3 will probably qualify as overkill, but true fans will be ecstatic despite the absence of certain previously available material or any backstage features that would allow a more intimate glimpse of prog-rock's most enduring practitioners. What's not here is regrettable; what is here is fantastic. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Rush Replay Is Awesome! April 17, 2006
Format:DVD
Rush Replay should be one of the best DVD concert releases of the Summer. (Technically very late Spring). This 3 DVD/1 CD box set will include the DVD versions of "Exit... Stage Left," "Grace Under Pressure," and "A Show of Hands." The CD in the box set is the unreleased soundtrack CD of the "Grace Under Pressure."

Before Rush Replay all three concerts were on VHS. These were extremely hard to get your hands on. Now, thanks to Alex Lifeson and Mike Fraser, you can enjoy these classic concerts in 5.1 surround sound and remastered visuals.

Exit... Stage Left:

The first DVD in Rush Replay is "Exit... Stage Left," which was filmed at The Forum in Montreal, Quebec. Anyone who owns the Exit... Stage Left CD knows how totally awesome the concert was. The CD and the DVD are radically different though. Lets look at the track listing of each.

Exit... Stage Left CD:
1. The Spirit of Radio (Not on DVD)
2. Red Barchetta
3. YYZ
4. A Passage To Bangkok (Not on DVD)
5. Closer To The Heart
6. Beneath, Between, and Behind (Not on DVD)
7. Jacob's Ladder (Not on DVD)
8. Broon's Bane (Not on DVD)
9. The Trees
10. Xanadu
11. Freewill
12. Tom Sawyer
13. La Villa Strangiato (Not on DVD)

Exit... Stage Left DVD
1. Limelight (Not on CD)
2. Tom Sawyer
3. The Trees
4. Instrumental (Not on CD)
5. Xanadu
6. Red Barchetta
7. Freewill
8. Closer To The Heart
9. YYZ
10. Finale: By-Tor and the Snow Dog/In The End/In The Mood/2112 Finale (Not on CD)

So in the end, the major songs missing on the DVD are, The Spirit of Radio, A Passage To Bangkok, and La Villa Strangiato. But in return, you get Limelight and the Finale.

5.0 out of 5 stars rush replay x3 3 thumbs up June 16, 2006
Format:DVD
First of all what a great set of concert videos these are. Any fan

of Rush would certainly add these to there Rush collection.

Having read some of the nastier reviews on the quality of the video

and the sound remixing, I hope to add my input to help put things

in some better perspective. These were shot back when hi-definition

tv's were only in someones dreams. They were meant to be played back on a traditional television with standard resolution. I have the luxury of owing a 50" dlp samsung and a 27" panasonic television. Playing back on my panasonic you can tell these have

been restored because of the clarity of the shadow detail and overall picture quality is quite vivid. Watching on my samsung

picture quality is still okay but it is not as crisp in sharpness

and you will experience some graininess to the video portion.

These were not filmed in Hi-Def so if you own a hi-def television

you might be a little disappointed but not totally.

The sound re-mixing on all 3 of these dvd's were to my satisfaction. I have a surround sound setup for watching on my samsung tv and the mixes sounded very good. Especially the DTS mix. I have just a regular stereo along side my panasonic tv and

the PCM stereo mix on everything was great.

Having said all that what ever type of system you have to play back these dvd's, the show is the thing and these guys Rock!!

5.0 out of 5 stars For Rush Fans June 18, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These DVDs are a gift, and an opportunity to see RUSH in concert during these time periods. U2 has released concerts from Under A Blood Red Sky to the Vertigo tour, and it's nice to see and hear the evolution of the band, as well as some of what has not changed. I'm shocked that many Rush fans have complained about this collection. This is an opportunity to watch these three concerts in conjuction with other newer DVD releases, allowing you to witness the evolution of Rush, and see a variety of songs and variations of certain titles. This is a bad thing? Many here seem to regret that these were ever released. I'm happy that the actual fans of Rush, however, have expressed joy and interest with this release. As a fan, I cannot wait to hear their next CD, and see them in concert again. I am anxious to witness it all, with my fellow fans, and not these complainers here on Amazon...

5.0 out of 5 stars Video ok, Sound good-to-great, Performance stellar August 13, 2006
By wadrad
Format:DVD
Just picked up "Replay" yesterday in a Mediamarkt in Germany (the German version of "Best Buy"). Admit I was quite surprised while I wasn't aware there were any releases planned for "Exit Stage Left" or any of Rush's other 80s video concerts. Doubly surprised since the 30-year anniversary video ("R30") was just released last year and "Rush in Rio" in 2003. Am I complaining? No, definitely not. I've wanted a copy of "Exit Stage Left" since I first saw the laser-disc version many years ago. To see it finally released on DVD with the bonus of two other concert DVDs ("Grace Under Pressure" and "Show of Hands" from the "Hold Your Fire" tour) and a live CD thrown in was really quite nice.

So, who would be the primary target for this collection? Rush fans, no doubt. To see the band at various stages--no pun intended--and hairdos in their careers is a treat. Though, yes, the video quality is lacking compared to "Rush in Rio" and "R30" (which are phenomenal quality-wise), no point complaining about something you can't change (but plenty of people will anyway!). The pluses of this set are definitely the 5.1 mixes of the material. As a home-recording/musician hobbyist, I'm pretty picky about sound quality, and all of material from this sounds good (ESPECIALLY compared to the old VHS stereo mix). Would I EQ differently in a few places? Sure, but I can do that with my home system to a decent degree. As well, without getting too "creative" (like putting the listener in the middle of Peart's drum set), you have less options to mix into 5.1 with just a 3-piece band. Again, audio quality is fine in my opinion.

Performances? Of all 3 concerts, I'd say they seem most jazzed during "Exit Stage Left". Tight performance, and they just appeared more into it.

This is a GREAT year for concert dvds!
Both are excellent , even though all the DVDs where made from the videos when there was no hi-definition.

For hi-definition , get the RUSH-30th Anniversary live DVD , as well!

I couldn't have said it better myself. I'm happy just to be able to watch these shows again, and the sound is awesome. The video also looks fine if you consider when they were filmed. Another thing that the "whiners" fail to consider is that you're getting three DVD's at about $9.00... Read More
