I've got almost every rush album on vinyl. My dad got them all back in the 80s, so i got them from him. A Farewell to Kings isn't their best record or anything, but I feel it gets a bit overly shit on sometimes. I'm a big fan of side 1. I like hearing Cinderella Man and Madrigal are solid low-key tracks. Cygnus X-1 is a silly mess. Thankfully whenever they've played it live they only do the intro bit. They would be far more successful with this type of concept on Hemispheres.
Yeah mine has the fishing line and weight thing. i didn't know wtf it was at first. But I figured it out.
