A nearly perfect copy of a rare Rush LP, as Rush albums sold quite poorly in Japan.

Background: Released in 1981, Moving Pictures was the eighth studio album by Rush.  The album was the band’s biggest-selling album up to that time, reaching #1 in Canada and #3 on the U.S. and the UK album charts. gave Moving Pictures a rare 5 star review:

Not only is 1981’s Moving Pictures Rush’s best album, it is undeniably one of the greatest hard rock albums of all time. The new wave meets hard rock approach of Permanent Waves is honed to perfection — all seven of the tracks are classics (four are still featured regularly in concert and on classic rock radio). While other hard rock bands at the time experimented unsuccessfully with other musical styles, Rush were one of the few to successfully cross over. …Rush proved with Moving Pictures that there was still uncharted territory to explore within the hard rock format, and were rewarded with their most enduring and popular album.
