2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Rush's eponymous debut album in 1974. A superb collectors box set entitled R40, released on November 11, 2014 (DVD and Blu-ray), brings together live performances by Rush from each decade of their career. It includes "Rush In Rio," "R30," "Snakes & Arrows Live," "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" and "Clockwork Angels Tour," plus a bonus disc of previously unseen and unreleased live material stretching from 1974 to 2013.
To the delight of fans, the bonus disc will include all eight songs from the Laura Secord Secondary School show in 1974, which features original drummer John Rutsey. That recording includes two Rush originals, "I've Been Runnin'" and "The Loser," as well as their cover of Larry Williams' "Bad Boy," made famous by the Beatles. The bonus disc also features five songs from the Capitol Theatre in 1976, such as "Anthem" and "Lakeside Park," the rarely performed full, 7-part version of "2112" filmed in 1997, "Lock and Key" from the Hold Your Fire tour, as well as footage from the glorious evening when Rush fans got their beloved band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Rush are renowned for the energy and excitement of their live concerts and this set brings together some of their finest performances. The 10 DVD (or 6 Blu-ray) discs are contained in a stunning 52-page hardback book measuring 305mm x 225mm with the 10 discs contained in five additional rigid insert pages, each holding two discs. The 52 pages of the book are filled with memorabilia and photographs documenting 40 years of Rush live in concert. This is the ultimate collection of Rush live performances, beautifully presented.

Rounder Records is pleased to announce the signing of acclaimed musician, songwriter, bandleader, and roots music preservationist Pokey LaFarge.
After spending the better part of 2014 on a world tour that took his band across the United States, Europe, India, Australia, and New Zealand, LaFarge and noted producer Jimmy Sutton have been putting the finishing touches on his new studio album, which is the follow-up to 2013’s critically lauded Pokey LaFarge.
LaFarge’s music has been hailed as “fresh, fun and altogether outstanding,” (NPR Music) and “irresistible” (Boston Globe), and praised for its “immediacy and timelessness.” (American Songwriter)
Rounder’s Vice President of A&R Scott Billington said, “We are thrilled that Pokey LaFarge has joined the Rounder family. His sound and his songs tap the deep roots of American music in a way that is both original and highly entertaining, and in that sense he has always seemed like a Rounder artist. So, welcome home, Pokey!”
LaFarge remarked, “I’ve been listening to music for a long time, and I’ve come to know and love Rounder as purveyors of fine roots music of all kinds. Their discerning taste, yet open mindedness towards all styles of music, casts an eye towards one bottom-line element: quality. I’m thrilled to join the Rounder catalog, alongside Mississippi John Hurt, Leon Redbone, Flaco Jimenez, the Del McCoury Band, Doc Watson, the Skatalites, JD McPherson, and many more champions of music that mean so much to me.”
Additionally, LaFarge has inked a deal with esteemed booking agency High Road Touring, led by respected industry veteran Frank Riley.
“For as long as I’ve been at it, Frank Riley and High Road Touring have been synonymous with hardworking professionalism and an honest reputation in the industry,” LaFarge stated. “As a top-tier, worldwide booking agency, High Road has the respect and kinship of some of my favorite artists, venues, and festivals today.”
