A little history of this album: despite the pleadings of Mercury Records at the time for the band to not do another “concept” album (after the semi-commercial failure of the previous album, Caress of Steel), members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Pert wrote this sci-fi masterpiece telling a dystopian story set in the year 2112. It became their breakthrough album, and eventually lead to this glorious moment where Ricky kidnaps Alex Lifeson:
He spends half the song kissin’ the women in the crowd. Elvis Love Me Tender at The International Hotel in Vegas, circa 1970.
