Hi Tom,
You should check out the new Rush cd (Snakes & Arrows Live). I gave it a listen the other day and the mix is extremely good for a live cd. It is the complete concert recorded in Rotterdam last fall. I would suspect that this is the audio portion of the DVD due out later this year.
Cheers,
Shaun
BTW, going to see Rush on May 29th in Vancouver. No road trip to Washington state this tour.
