A nice copy of a very rare Rush LP, as their albums sold poorly in Japan, particularly in the pre-Moving Pictures era.
Background: Released in 1975, Fly By Night was the second studio album from Rush and the first to feature the classic lineup of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart.
The album reached #113 on the U.S. album charts.
Prior to one of Rush’s first U.S. tours, original drummer John Rutsey split from the band, since he wasn’t prepared to commit to the band’s rigorous touring schedule. And it proved to be a blessing in disguise, since his replacement was to become one of the most respected rock drummers of all time, Neil Peart, who would also steer the band towards success with more challenging material — starting with Fly by Night. …Fly by Night may not be one of Rush’s finest albums, but it is one of their most important — it showed that the young band was leaving their Zep-isms behind in favor of a more challenging and original direction.
