According to MusicTAP, Mercury Records will reissue a Super Deluxe CD/BD version of RUSH‘s classic 1976 album “2112”on December 18. The set is expected to contain a 5.1 version of the album.
“2112” was included in the “Sector 1” box set release last year, but no 5.1 edition of the album was made available.
A unique blend of classic rock and synthesizers that made RUSH a sensation both in Canada and the United States, “2112” is one of two RUSH albums listed in “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” (the other being “Moving Pictures”). In 2006, a poll of Planet Rock listeners picked “2112” as the definitive RUSH album. In 2012, the album came in at No. 2 on Rolling Stone‘s list for “Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums of All Time,” as voted for in a reader’s poll, being one of three RUSH albums included on the list (the others being “Moving Pictures” and “Hemispheres”).
