‘I’d like to see that corrected’: Geddy Lee wants Rush’s Vapor Trails to get the next 5.1 remix

Though it came out just over a decade ago, Geddy Lee says he’s interested in doing a 5.1 remastering of Rush’s 2002 album Vapor Trails, a project that marked the band’s return to the studio after a six-year hiatus.

“I think the material there deserves a second shot,” Lee says, in the attached video. “I don’t think the mixes brought out everything that those songs had to offer. I’d like to see that corrected at some point.”

Vapor Trails, which was original produced by Paul Northfield, followed a series of personal tragedies for Neil Peart, Rush’s lyricist and drummer. As such, the project took more than a year to finish. Despite the problems with its conception and sound, however, Vapor Trails went gold in their native Canada.

Meanwhile, Rush has more recently released their well-received 2012 studio effort Clockwork Angels — even while doing 5.1 remixes of both Moving Pictures and 2112.

“There’s something about doing this that brings the songs back to life,” Lee adds. “So, you could pick almost any record.”
