A Ponderable, For Sure
While I contemplate and pick at a couple of other posts for a day, or 2, 3… out, here’s some early, very Deep Dish rock for you. It’s Rush, 1976 live, Lakeside Park.
The video is primitive but gets better. The band is quite unpolished at this point. Geddy’s vocals are by far the weakest element (but later to equal guitar and drums). I have a number of later versions of this song and they get way better — more polished on every element. OK, so everything gets going at around 1:20. At 2:00, even better and by 2:45, we’re in full swing.
The title of the post comes in at 3:20, which ushers in a full minute closing of nothing but instrumental; and the good thing about that, is that it’s pretty much just as good as anything later.
