Rush Easter Egg - Album Cover Fun
Here are some interesting tidbits about some of the album covers.
1. EXIT..STAGE LEFT - An item from each of the previous nine album covers can be seen on the cover of this live album. Example... the woman holding the curting is the same woman from Permanent Waves. The man with hand in jacket was on Hempisheres. The owl was from Fly By Night. The moving men from Moving Pictures, etc. Most of the image is on the other side of the cover though... a gatefold LP is the best for viewing.
2. PERMANENT WAVES - Peart, Lee, Lifeson are names on the signs in the distance. Look to the right of the girl. The newspaper on the left also was whited out... it said Dewey Defeats Truman but was removed by request from the Chicago Tribune (who have no sense of humor about their infamous mistake).
(Additional FYI - As most of their album covers were by Hugh Syme, you can see some of them at his web site, including the UNEDITED version of this cover, with the "Dewey..." line still visible.)
