Background: Released in 1976, All the World’s a Stage was the first live album by Rush.
The album reached #40 on the U.S. album charts, though it was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA.
The ’70s may forever be remembered as the decade of the “live album,” where many rock artists (Kiss, Peter Frampton, Cheap Trick, etc.) used the format for their commercial breakthrough. While Rush’s All the World’s a Stage is not as renowned as the aforementioned bands’ live albums, it is still one of the better in-concert rock releases of the decade, and helped solidify the trio’s stature as one of rock’s fastest rising stars. Eventually, Rush would polish their live sound to sound almost like a studio record, but in the mid-’70s, they were still a raw and raging hard rock band, captured perfectly on All the World’s a Stage
