Moving Pictures has become Rush's most successful studio album in the US with sales exceeding four million copies and a peak chart position of number three in Billboard. The band's complex songwriting and musical virtuosity reach new heights with this material despite the preponderance of shorter, more radio-friendly songs. Recorded and mixed at Le Studio north of Montréal, Moving Pictures includes the Rush signature tracks Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Red Barchetta and the band’s highly praised instrumental, YYZ, which earned Rush its first Grammy nomination. Rolling Stone named this album the third greatest progressive rock album of all time in a 2015 feature.

Moving Pictures is the intersection between Rush's '70s art-rock style and their sequencer-laced '80s efforts. An incredible stylistic leap for the band, the songs here incorporate reggae, percolating synth and even a new wave-tinged early '80s pop sensibility. 'Tom Sawyer,' the ultimate alienated-teen saga, is the album's best known song. 'Red Barchetta' picks up where 2112 left off with futuristic, sci fi-oriented lyrics. The instrumental 'YYZ' is as far into straight-up progressive rock as the band had ever ventured. Things get socio-political on the ominous 'Witch Hunt,' and a Jamaican flavor enlivens 'Vital Signs.' The increased reliance on synthesizers and sequencers would later become irksome to old school Rush fans, but on 'Moving Pictures', electronics are tastefully applied to further the group's musical vision, making for what just might be their finest batch of songs.

This groundbreaking book argues that health and medical media, with their unique goals and production values, constitute a rich cultural and historical archive and deserve greater scholarly attention. Original essays by leading media scholars and historians of medicine demonstrate that Americans throughout the twentieth century have learned about health, disease, medicine, and the human body from movies.

Raised in the Hollywood of the 1920s as the privileged son of a pioneer studio mogul, Budd Schulberg went on to win fame as a distinguished novelist, short story writer, playwright, Oscar-winning screenwriter, and boxing historian. Moving Pictures is his fascinating remembrance of growing up amidst the glamour, swank, courage, triumphs, defeats, cabals, and double-crosses of an industry in the making. His utterly candid account includes unsparing portraits of outsized characters in all their power, venality, charm, pettiness, and vindictiveness. As a book on the early days of the movies in Hollywood, this one is hard to beat. Abundantly illustrated with black-and-white photographs.

This version of the album is just outstanding in almost every way. It is bold without being overly loud, it has a warm almost vinyl sound to it, and the detail is just amazing.
