Recorded at Le Studio, Morin-Heights, Quebec, during September and October 1979. Mixed at Trident Studios, Soho, London in November 1979.

This pressing has the newspaper headline 'whited' out to render it almost unreadable, and 'Lifeson' on the 'blacked' out Coca Cola sign in the background. Almost exactly the same version as Rush - Permanent Waves, but with the following differences:
-has the same misprint that you can find on Rush - Permanent Waves I quote: "This version has B2 as Different Strings on the rear cover but has Between Us on the Label. There is also a note stating "Lyrics by Neil Peart except 'Between Us' by Geddy Lee."
-Slightly different matrix codes (last three digits are different)
-my copy comes with the original record pouch and separate inner sleeve with song lyrics and band pictures

Marketed by Phonogram.
