Rush - A Farewell To Kings (1977).

Bill Griffin: My first Rush album. Rush was a band that, up through Signals at least, got better with every release. A Farewell To Kings is one of a handful of albums that friends introduced me to in my teens and which ignited my life long love of all forms of rock music. This is the album that nurtured an ability in me to appreciate the more complex and challenging - and hence rewarding - style of rock music.

A Farewell to Kings was remastered for vinyl in 2015 by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios as a part of the official "12 Months of Rush" promotion.

A Farewell To Kings was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, and mixed at Advision Studios in London. The album took three weeks to record and two weeks to mix. It was the band’s Rush’s first US gold-selling album, receiving the certification within two months of its release, and was eventually certified platinum. I’ve yet to look at it and start finding fault with it, pick it apart, you kno. t still sounds so positive. And with respect to Rockfield Studios, Geddy said: We were very happy with the sound we got there for ‘Kings’, also it’s got so much to offe. ockfield is so good if you want to experiment–you know, you can go outside to record, use their weird echo roo. hat’s the kind of environment we like. The birds heard on A Farewell to Kings and Xanadu were recorded outside near Rockfield Studios.
