Yeah - that's "Power Windows" one of their lesser known albums... yet
probably (at least in IHMO) one of the better of their mid to late 80's
efforts. Rush has had some interesting covers over the years... but
that's typical among progressive rock bands (Yes, Moody Blues, Jethro
Tull, Pink Floyd, etc.). Speaking of Tull and covers - any have the
original Thick as a Brick? They can't do that with a CD cover!

best regards...

In fact, the CD that I have not only contains the original artwork (need
to put on my glasses to read it), it also contains the original
recording, plus a live version of the album, plus a retrospective (five
years on) audio interview with the band detailing the recording.

Yes, I have that CD as well... but that still doesn't compare to the
full size news paper (after unfolding)... don't need glasses to read that.

True, but even the later editions of the LP didn't contain the fold-out....

That's what I was wondering - since we were in Guam when it hit the
street... or at least by the time we heard about it - it was early 1973
(ship's store doesn't stay too up to date when you're at sea!) - and I
had just assumed they all had it. It was only fairly recently on some
radio program where they were talking about TAAB that one of the people
being interviewed noted that the newspaper was fairly limited - and now
days somewhat rare - esp. in good condition. They also noted the 25th
anniversary re-issue has a reproduction - but it too has some missing
"stuff" that was in the original "edition". Thick as a brick was meant
as a send-up of some of the concept albums being done at the time by Yes
and ELP (why Ian didn't pick on the Moody Blues is a mystery!) - I've
always suspected that it might be because he and Ray Thomas had a lot in
common since they both played the flute as their instrument of choice...

best regards...

I found the "picture disc picture" in an eBay listing. I have a few picture discs,
but not this one (yet). However I do already have the 2 Predictas and the GE
locomotive set pictured on the RUSH album.
