Rush Releasing Special Vinyl “Hologram Edition” of Classic Album "2112"

Recommended Posts

Rush has announced that it’s adding a very cool release to its year-long “12 Months of Rush” reissue campaign. A special Hologram Edition vinyl version of the Canadian power trio’s lauded 1977 album 2112 will be available for purchase on March 17.

The disc will be pressed on high-quality, 200-gram vinyl, and will feature a hand-drawn holographic image of the “Red Star of the Federation” design near the center of the LP’s second side. The spinning hologram is viewable by shining a focused source of light — for example, a smartphone’s LED flashlight — above the turntable while the record is playing. You can watch a video demonstrating how the hologram looks at Rush’s official YouTube channel.

Fans buying this special vinyl edition of 2112 also will receive a download card allowing access to a high-resolution digital version of the album.

As previously reported, throughout 2015 Rush is releasing high-quality vinyl and high-resolution digital versions of the albums it originally issued on the Mercury label, with at least one title arriving each month. Select albums also will be sold in the Blu-ray Audio format. The latest release in the series, 1975’s Caress of Steel, was reissued on vinyl and as a high-res download, February 24.
