Description

Fly by Night is the second studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in February 1975. Fly by Night was recorded at Toronto Sound Studios on OVERLEA BLVD. in Toronto. Rush also recorded parts of their first album at the same studio. Since the first album sessions the studio had upgraded its equipment from a Cadac console with an Ampex MM-1000 2 inch 16 track and a MM-1000 8 track to a two-inch analog 24-track master tape recorder. Pictures shown on the Fly by Night album artwork indicate that the studio used a 24-track recorder made by Studer and a Neve mixing console, a combination that was widely considered to be state of the art by audio engineers. These were the preferred brands by many top studios worldwide up through the mid 1990s when digital recording equipment became the standard. Fly by Night is the band's first album to be produced by Terry Brown, who had remixed the band's debut album. Brown would maintain this role through 1982's Signals. The high fidelity recording of Fly by Night was very positive in moving the band forward in a direction that piqued the interest of audiophiles who would seek out this type of recording while also getting familiar with the band's material. Fly by Night set an early standard of excellence in this area not often prioritized by the harder rock bands of the mid 1970's rock era.
