Moving Pictures is the eighth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush. It was
recorded and mixed from October to November 1980 at Le Studio located in Morin
Heights, Quebec, Canada, and released on February 12, 1981. Throughout the years
2014 and 2015, Rush celebrate their 40th anniversary with vinyl reissues of
albums from their Mercury era.
What can you say? Moving Pictures became the band’s biggest selling album in the
U.S., rising to #3 on the Billboard charts. It remains Rush’s most popular and
commercially successful studio recording. Rush’s complex songwriting and musical
virtuosity reached new heights on this album.
Recorded and mixed from October to November 1980 at Le Studio, Moving Pictures
followed a more radio-friendly format and includes several signature tracks,
including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight,” “Red Barchetta,” and the band’s highly
praised instrumental, “YYZ,” which is the IATA airport identification code of
Toronto Pearson International Airport.
The album cover is a monument to triple entendre. Movers are physically moving
pictures, people are crying because the pictures passing by are emotionally
“moving,” and the back cover depicts a film crew making a “moving picture” of
the whole scene.
"Not only is 1981's Moving Pictures Rush's best album, it is undeniably one
of the greatest hard rock albums of all time...Rush proved with Moving Pictures
that there was still uncharted territory to explore within the hard rock format,
and were rewarded with their most enduring and popular album." -Greg Prato,
