Rush's 8th album, 1980's Permanent Waves, is where the little Canadian trio that could, became one of the biggest rock acts on the planet. Much of the success is thanks to the album's best known track "The Spirit of Radio"—proof that a prog-rock band known for marathon epics could also pen short(er) catchy singles. "Spirit" also marked the band's initial experiment with adding reggae flavors to its music. The new shorter, lower approach made another pair of songs here—"Freewill" and "Entre Nous"—into instant Rush highlights.

The first of their albums recorded at Quebec's Le Studio (a magical locale where their next career-defining album Moving Pictures was also cut), Permanent Waves is also where a small tweak—bassist Geddy Lee singing in lower registers—removed another obstacle to the band's wider success. Up to that point, Lee's unnaturally high nasal yowl had been too much of an acquired taste for some listeners. Reissued with improved sound and precious, unreleased live material (including the shortest version of 1975's "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" ever recorded) for its 40th Anniversary, Permanent Waves is a band solidly in their most creative period, growing increasingly confident in their artistry. © Robert Baird/Qobuz

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.
