Rush is the debut studio album by Canadian progressive rock band Rush, originally released in March 1974 by Moon Records.

Today Rush is practically a household name for fans of progressive hard rock. Known for their ground-breaking albums like ‘2112’ and ‘Moving Pictures’, they didn’t start out making such complex heavy epics with their fascinating and philosophical lyrical themes.

The music here is primarily heavy blues rock, not dissimilar to Led Zeppelin and Foghat. The lyrics are about daily life and love, e.g. “Working Man”. Musically with some variation., to the bluesy feel is there like “Here Again”, which is a much slower pace with some dark power chords. “What You’re Doing” has some great heavy riffing and “Working Man” is crushingly heavy.

Alex Lifeson’s riffs and solos are effective and will stick in your mind, with Geddy Lee’s vocals nice and aggressive. John Rutsey (later replaced by Neil Peart) also provides some impressive drum work, especially on “Before And After”.

Overall this is one great debut album of fantastic heavy blues rock, and an impressive start for one of the most innovative bands in the hard / progressive rock arena.

Check out the tracks: “Working Man”; “Here Again” and “Before And After”. 

This 40th Anniversary Box Set features the original LP with remastered audio and reproduced original artwork is pressed in the USA on 200 gram heavyweight vinyl. Inside the box holds an original shop poster, 3 individual photos of each band member, an intricate band family tree and a download card.
