Here you can listen to original songs performed by the North Texas later '70s era progressive rock band First Rush. NEWS FLASH: Four original members NOW REHEARSING and have re-formed the band TO PERFORM SOON!
These songs were recorded and produced at TRC Studios in Indianapolis, Indiana, during 1978 and 1979. A now-rare 45 rpm single (under the rather abrupt non-'Rush' name) was issued by Polydor Records for two of these titles but the remainder have never before been available. NEWLY REMASTERED by Tom Hicks!
