Label: Island Mercury
With definitive versions of "Spirit of the Radio," "Closer to the Heart" and possibly the most air-drummed song ever, "YYZ," Rush's second live album combines performances from the band's Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves tours, while the Canadian hard prog masters were at a major creative peak. As can be expected, Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee and Neil Peart all play like higher life forms, and the set list could serve as a greatest hits collection. Exit ... Stage Left is often cited as one of the best live albums of all time.
