      It's going to need something pretty special included for me to buy the album again. [/QUOTE

      Hahaha

      My next copy will come with obligatory question โ€œhow many of copies of this do you have and need?โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š. And โ€œdidnโ€™t we just get this already?โ€ ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

        expect big anniversary as TYA and F have passed by with little fanfare. Hope they do a doco and maybe even a special concert.
        Maybe it's time to tally up the sales for it again too. CTTE went platinum in 1998 and Fragile went two times platinum then. It's possible CTTE is double by now also.

          Why should the units shifted be significant with regard to an Anniversary reissue or a documentary?
          Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
          Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip itโ€™s been.

            I think the question is why should they not be? Moving Pictures by Rush was certified 5x platinum after it's 40th anniversay. Someone probably figured "hey, it's getting more attention now because of an anniversary so let's see if that has translated to more sales. " Sales is not the be all end all but it's nice when milestones like that happen and with an album like CTTE which has garnered a lot of accolades in the past several years(not just by music fans but critics as well) it seems reasonable to me that someone would be curious if that has translated to more album sales as well. What better time to investigate that then a significant anniversary(like what was done with Moving Pictures)?

              I have no idea what 5x platinum means? It would never occur to me to try and equate the critical regard in which an album is held with its commercial performance, and to think that significant. My brain just doesn't work like that. It seems reductive to me, a millstone rather than a milestone, so to speak.
              I have no interest in Rush either way.

                It's all about the "mob rules" which have shaped cultural history for 2000 years......I do find it fascinating that the Eagles' Greatest Hits has sold over 38 MIllion albums, while something like Close To The Edge barely goes Platinum. People are Blind, and the average Musical IQ of your typical human is about 62.

                  I don't know what 'goes Platinum' means? Sorry, bit of a British dunce on all this commercial stuff.

                    It's a measurement of sales. Here's a website with all the details. Platinum seems to mean one million units sold.

                      I wouldn't say it "barely" went platinum. They probably tallied those at the same time and didn't get around to it until 1998. It may very well have sold that many several years before that (maybe in the 70's). So maybe by the time they checked the numbers it was way more than platinum (maybe 1.5 million) but not enough to go double platinum.

                      Sales don't mean a lot to a lot of people. Sometimes albums are obscure for a good reason and sometimes they sell a lot for a good reason. There are many very good lesser known albums that have only gone gold (if that) and many albums that have sold a lot that are not that good(much pop music). I find it interesting to see what sells. I don't write off something just because it has sold a lot. Dark Side Of the Moon, several Beatles and Led Zeppelin albums have sold tons.

                      For AA, platinum means it has sold one million copies according to the RIAA (US album sales). In the UK it's different. If someone doesn't know or care about it that's fine by me. I like statistics so I find it intersting.

                        They could release the original, plus some live versions throughout the years, plus even re-record a new version in the studio, anyways, one can dream

                          We already got Seven different shows from the CTTE tour......I'd be much more interested in getting the complete show of NY/Academy of Music (Feb '72), from which LDR/The Fish on Yessongs was taken. As for a re-recording by the Jon Davison lineup......no comment !

                                Well, if it's a boxset then there will be a lot of stuff on it besides just the regular album. My guess would be a lot of live stuff. I don't think there are many (if any) rare songs that didn't make it to the album. I would have to look at the song list before deciding if it's something I want. If there is a dvd included that would probably make me want to get it though.

                                Also, I don't think any version featuring Jon Davison would belong on it (Just my opinion though).
