1977's ‘A Farewell To Kings’ built upon the fire-breathing reputation RUSH had set with ‘2112’ and ‘All The World's A Stage’ and firmly set them on the path to global stardom!
It didn't sell in enormous quantities, but it hit the ground running and sold consistently, by word of mouth.
Labelled as 'Sci-Fi Rock' in some departments, it was way, way beyond that and still stands as a testimony to the difficult art of long-song writing, succinct, but superb playing and memorable melody.
Play it again … was that really 40 years ago?
We're still not there yet.

This Extremely Limited Super Deluxe Edition of the 40th Anniversary version of ‘A Farewell To Kings includes Three Compact Discs, One BluRay Audio Disc and Four High-Quality 180-Gram Vinyl LP’s.
The set encompasses the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 Remastered Edition of the album for the First Time on CD; a Complete RUSH Concert recorded in February 1978 at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, newly mixed by long-time RUSH engineer and producer Terry Brown from the Multi-Track Live Tapes; Four Newly-Recorded Cover Versions of songs from the original album by DREAM THEATER, BIG WRECK, The TREWS and ALAIN JOHANNES; and an Instrumental Studio Outtake of the spacey sound effects the band has creatively titled: ‘Cygnus X-2 Eh’.
The Hammersmith show features, for the first-time ever, Over 34 Minutes of Unreleased Performances including a complete ‘2112’ suite, ‘Lakeside Park’, a drum solo and ‘Closer To The Heart’.
The Super Deluxe Edition’s audio content on its CD’s is duplicated on its Vinyl Discs.
Meanwhile, the BluRay Audio Disc contains a Brand New 5.1 Surround Mix of the album by four-time Grammy® nominated surround sound producer: Steven Wilson, along with Three Original 1977 Promo Videos from a newly found 2-Inch Quad Video Master significantly improving the video quality for ‘Closer To The Heart’. The Super Deluxe Package also includes an elaborate New 40th Anniversary Cover Treatment by long-time RUSH creative director: Hugh Syme, who has also created a new piece of artwork for each of the album’s six songs, and an Extensive 12,000-Word Liner Notes by Grammy®-winning rock historian Rob Bowman.

The package also includes several Exclusive Items, including a unique King’s Ring, with Custom Velvet Pouch and Neck Chain (wtf?); Two Lithographs with Original Artwork by Hugh Syme; a Special 12” Turntable Mat featuring distinctive artwork by Hugh Syme; and a reproduction of RUSH’s original 1978: ‘Farewell To Kings’ tour program.
