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.

Kristin Chenoweth's Live Debut Out Now


Emmy and Tony Award-winning singer-actress Kristin Chenoweth has released her first live CD, Coming Home. A PBS concert special, Kristin Chenoweth: Coming Home, will air on November 28, 2014 and will be available on CD and DVD. Billboard  recently premiered a "making of" video, which can be viewed here.

"The whole experience was very emotional," Kristin Chenoweth said of the historic performance that's captured on Coming Home, her debut release for Concord Records and first-ever live, career-spanning album.

The aptly titled, 15-song set captures the versatile star singing for a rapturously enthusiastic crowd at the Kristin Chenoweth Theatre in the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The personally charged concert finds Chenoweth accompanied by an expert 11-piece band incorporating strings, horns and woodwinds, along with a trio of backup vocalists and the Broken Arrow High School Choir. The set list spans her entire stage and screen career and encompasses the breadth of her musical interests, incorporating Broadway classics, timeless pop standards and contemporary material, covering a remarkable amount of stylistic ground while providing a compelling showcase for Chenoweth's abundant talent and charisma.

"When I'm in a concert setting, I don't have to play a role," she notes. "It's more of a challenge to sing as yourself, because you can go to a very raw place that you don't always want to share, or maybe you don't mean for it to come out. But it's all part of being an artist and letting people see who you are. And hopefully when people listen to this CD, they'll have a better idea, or maybe even a different idea, of who Kristin Chenoweth is."
