Author Notes

This song is the B-side to the single and is in my opinion the better of the two songs. It's basically an extended guitar solo with some cheesy lyrics about "com'mon and dance, don't fight it". It does sound a lot more Rush then the cover of "Not Fade Away". Comparing this stuff to records like 2112 (which came out 3 years later) it's incredible to hear where the band came from. I honestly listen to this and not fade away more as historical pieces then something I would put on to listen to.
 
Standout tracks are the guitar part since it is just a really long solo, the drums shine a little bit but nothing to spectacular, and the bass part on here. Geddy Lee does not sound like himself on this record and it's either because he was very young and not that good, or the studio/record company was trying to emulate a Bad Company / Foreigner / generic 70s rock band (not to dump on those two bands but you get my point).

thank you so much for making these awesome 2 songs, it's been so long since I had new rush content for my drums and I was losing hope about ever seeing anything new. I was think of making some Rush songs (Especially the Vapor Trails (2002 version is a million times better than that 2012 "Remastered" mediocre crap. If Vapor trails were Lucky Charms, the remix took all of the marshmellows out and left the bland mediocre brown parts, but... well... what do I know?, St. Anger is unironically my favorite Metallica album) and Presto album) myself but my charts always take forever because I suck at charting guitar

I disagree. 2002 version was undoubtedly a victim of the Loudness War that should've never came out the way it did. The later remix sounds much better despite still being kinda loud.

Okay dude, I know we all have our own opinions because everyone is different, but mine are just facts because it's the minority. And there should be no reason to explain why my opinions are facts and everyone elses opinions are wrong because mine are just facts. Geddy Lee literally said in an interview that got deleted off of youtube with no transscript or evidence of it existing at all, "2002 Vapor trails is better than the remix, I just wanted money and I hate America" - Geddy lee - 2007.  He literally said that see!?!? <------
