'Rush - Working Men'
(Rush / DVD / NR / (2009) 2010 / Rounder)

Overview: Rush's Working Men is the first-ever "greatest hits" live performance DVD compilation from the legendary rock trio. Inspired by the classic "Working Man" from Rush's first album and culled from their three most recently filmed DVD releases - Rush in Rio, R30 and Snakes & Arrows Live - Working Men features dynamic live versions of Rush's best known songs.

DVD Verdict: As we should all know by now, Rush is a Canadian rock band originally formed in August 1968, in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, and is composed of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.

'Rush - Working Men' contains excellent performances from all of this trio of musical wonders ... trouble is, all, bar one, is already available on other DVDs, so beware! That one exception is the "One Little Victory" clip from the 'R30' show in Frankfort, Germany, which has recently been made available, in its entirety, on Blu-ray.

Hence, I'm not too certain why they decided to release this disc, other than just to promote their other concert vids. However, if you don't want to buy those vids individually, this DVD does not fall short in terms of quality by any means.

The complete track listing is: Limelight, The Spirit of Radio, 2112, Freewill, Dreamline, Far Cry, Subdivisions, One Little Victory (previously unreleased), Closer to the Heart, Tom Sawyer, Working Man, and YYZ .

So, if you're a casual fan, check it out. If you're hardcore, on the other hand, you may want to pass it over - as you've probably seen and heard all this before, in truth. This is a Widescreen Presentation (2.35:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
