By 1980, Rush was experiencing the mid-point of what would be their golden
period of recording (1976-1982). Released in January that year, Permanent Waves
was a transitional exercise that moved them further from the 'prog-rock'
lump-labeling and pointed the way for their next masterpiece the following year,
Peaking at Number 4 on the Billboard's Album chart, Permanent Waves spawned such
perennial concert staples as “Freewill” and “Spirit of Radio”. Well-beyond the
power-trio of old, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart each contributed
equally, with multiple instrumentation and arranging approaches. With Terry
Brown, (on board from their 1974 debut through 1982's Signals) again producing,
each album was a leap forward in mixing and production values, helping elevate
the group to the upper echelons of rockdom. The combination of songwriting,
arranging and production indeed renders it "an undisputed rock classic".
