  • Rush Not Fade Away / You Can't Fight It Moon Records MN 001 The following information was found at the Rush Collector Resources which can be seen at http://www.wellers.demon.co.uk/anthem.htm -------------------------------------------------- (7, 1,000 copies, some stamped 'not for sale', 73) The very first Rush single, recorded during the Spring of 1973, the 'a' side was a cover of the song made famous by the Stones, but the 'b' side was an original Rush composition. These tracks have never appeared on any other (legitimate) release and so this 7 counts as one of the most prized possessions in any Rush fans' collection. The single was not a great success, and is certainly not the finest Rush recording, but provides a good insight into the formative stages of their career. Live shows from this period often featured another cover, Bad Boy by Larry Williams. Serious fans should try and track down a copy of a recently re-broadcast concert from the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland from August 1974, which features this song plus two Rush-penned compositions, Fancy Dancer and Garden Road which were never released on record. This concert was broadcast by WMMS radio in Cleveland as part of a weekend promoting the new Geddy Lee solo album. Back in 1974, WMMS was home to Donna Halper who was instrumental in introducing Rush to Mercury Records and breaking them in the United States.
