Retrospective 3
Retrospective 3
is a compilation album released on March 3, 2009. The album is essentially a collection of songs from the third and fourth decades of the band (1989-2008), which they spent signed to Atlantic Records. The album is available in two versions. The 2-disc version includes a DVD of music and live videos.

Album artworkEdit

Retrospective 3 displays the covers of six albums - Vapor Trails, Test For Echo, Counterparts, Roll The Bones, Presto, and alternate artwork for Snakes & Arrows - on the wall, while that of the Feedback EP rests on the floor. The Snakes & Arrows art, designed by Hugh Syme, was originally used on that album's insert and later appeared on the cover of the Snakes & Arrows Live album; the portion featuring the battered road sign was used for the DVD version. The dog from the cover of Signals sits looking up at the covers, and the pushbroom used by the janitor on the cover of the Gold compilation rests against the wall near him. (The dog appears on the Gold cover as well.)

ContentEdit

This is the only Retrospective collection to feature live material, in the form of the song "Ghost Of A Chance (Live)". This version is notable for not being previously available on any other Rush release. It also feature remixes of the two tracks from Vapor Trails, done to correct mastering problems associated with the album.
