Galt Speaks:

It's finally here! The complete soundboard recording of the Tucson '78 show! The version has been digitally remastered from the BEST source that we could find. It's taken from an extremely low gen source-better than the ones that claim to be 1st gens!!! You can find the art in the high res scans section. This JKR Productions release is for TRADE ONLY! Check out the DRE Newsgroup and you'll find several traders/collectors there who will be willing to trade or do 2:1s for this show. Enjoy!


One of my favorite bootlegs! Awe, I love this show, and what’s not to love? The sound is definitely up to professional release quality, the performance is tight and strong and the set list is great! The boys seem to be having a fun time most of the night. There is the point where Geddy tells everyone to move back 3 or 4 times then they finally do, then he has to tell them a few more times, finally someone (I’m told a police officer) gets up on stage and pleads with them and its never a problem again. The situation doesn’t sour the band's attitude in the least; they just seem to be loose and free, having plenty of fun. Not as much fun as "Passage to Oslo PE" and not as good of a performance, but certainly a great one! The part I like a lot is when Geddy says during “Working Man” “they call Lerxst the working man, I guess that’s what he am”. The sound is significantly better than all the “Hemispheres” bootleg! s (even a bit better than “Passage to Oslo PE”). This show may have the ONLY great recording of the seldom-played “Circumstances”, so that is a MAJOR bonus. This is probably the single best performance of “La Villa Strangiato”, so more major points! What’s not to love? This is some really, really damn good stuff! Absolute must have in every way! There is a cut in “Hemispheres”, the sound fades out and comes back in a minute later, it’s a nice fade in and fade out so the cut doesn’t really bug me. If your going to get one from the “Hemispheres” I’d suggest this one, but I really strongly recommend getting both “Every Soul A Battlefield” & “A Passage to Oslo PE”. Either, this bootleg or “Exit…Stage Right” or "Target Mass Appeal PE", any of them could be my favorite bootleg!
