This is not a new Rush album, this is a mini-CD on which Rush is playing cover-versions of old songs, that they used to play in various bands back in the 60's even before Rush was born.

You get 8 cover-versions: "Summertime Blues" (Blue Cheer), "Heart Full Of Soul" (The Yardbirds), "For What It's Worth" (Buffalo Springfield), "The Seeker" (The Who), "Mr. Soul" (Neil Young), "Seven And Seven Is" (Love), "Shapes Of Things" (The Yardbirds) and "Crossroads" (Cream) - you get 27 minutes of Rush playing rather simple songs, all pretty close to the original.

This album is for fans only, and it surely helps to be fan of 60's stuff as well. To me a bit waste of both time and money .... not that you can put your finger on any of the songs, they are just not that overly interesting.
