Subject: Update to images file
Date: Thu, 03 Jan 91 11:49:27 EST
From: RUSH Fans Digest Manager 

The CONTENTS file in the images directory for anonymous ftp (on Syrinx)
has been updated.  I originally guessed (incorrectly) that the images
were circa 1987 or so; actually they were scanned from the _Rush Profiled_
CD, released in 1990.

  When I was 12, about 8 years ago, everytime I turned on MTV, now
known as eMpTyV, eMpTyV showed rush like they were going out of style
or something.  They showed more Rush videos in a day than you could
count on your fingers.

  Just some food for thought on how bad eMpTyV has gotten in the
recent past.

Just a couple quick interesting notes. The Washington Post today has a
list of the top 10 grossing tours of 1990. While Rush isn't in the top
10 (#1 went to New Kids), they did get a note as one of 19 acts (after
the top 10) to gross more than $10 million.

Also, a couple of days ago, the local classic rock station printed
their "top 500 songs of all time."  Tom Sawyer was the only Rush song
to make the list (that I could see). It barely made it at #499!  Ah,
what do they know? :-)

  Hello all ya RUSH heads from the place known as "Someplace
special" (hahaha), someplace cold is more like it.  Anywayz, I
just got Caress Of Steel for Xmas and it's pretty cool.  But, I
was kinda wondering something, does ANYONE out there have P/G on
CD??  And does anyone know where I can get it???  I really like
the album and I want to get it but I can't find it in this place
that don't know good music if it came up and bit them in the a**.
Anywayz, would anyone be nice enough to tell me???  And if it's
possible that I send them the $$$ to get me it since I'm up here
and stuff.  But if anyone knows where to get one and would be
willing to buy iy for me if I send them the $$$ I'll be really

[ Hmm, this is odd - around the Washington DC area, it's one of the Rush
  CD's you can count on finding.  Have you tried checking your local mega-
  music store (like Tower records)?                              :rush-mgr ]


RUSH on dudes!!
