With Rush in the running for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the label’s need to try and get as much Rush shit re-released for optimal cash-inization.
So Universal Music Enterprises will release deluxe editions of Rush’s landmark album 2112 that will feature 5.1 Surround Sound mixes, unreleased live tracks and the first-ever Rush comic book.
The reissue will be available globally starting December 18.
There will be three configurations of 2112: deluxe editions (CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray) and a special super deluxe edition (CD/Blu-ray/hardbound book case). The deluxe editions contain a CD/DVD or CD/Blu-ray material including the remastered 2112 CD with three live bonus tracks and a DVD or Blu-ray disc with a 5.1 Surround Sound audio mix and an interactive digital comic book, a new album cover by original album designer Hugh Syme, liner notes and unpublished photos.
The super deluxe contains the CD/Blu-Ray and is meticulously assembled in a hardbound bookcase packed with a 40-page comic book representing every song on 2112.
And just in case you didn’t know this, you probably should own a copy of this classic album already.
