A Show Of Hands is a music live recording by RUSH (Heavy Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1989 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. You might as well reconsider purchasing this album because it ain't nothing out of this world, but if you still won't believe me and go for it, you might as well go and purchase the live DVD of this tour too, "A Show of hands - The Video Concert" to look at it with your own eyes.

Release date: December 21st, 1988. Oddly, "Prime Mover" does not actually appear on the record, though several other songs from the studio album it was on, 1987's Hold Your Fire, do appear. Recording information: Recorded in Birmingham, New Orleans, Phoenix, and San Diego during the 1988 Hold Your Fire tour as well as in the Meadowlands (East Rutherford, NJ) during the 1986 Power Windows tour.

9, 1989, 'A Show of Hands' became an end-of-an-era album for Rush. As they'd done with their previous live release, 1981's Exit. Stage Left, Rush released a video to complement A Show of Hands, drawing footage from the . shows sourced for the record and packing on some extra tracks to round out the expanded 90-minute running time. And just as they'd done in '81, when they released Exit along with the Moving Pictures album, Rush served up a double dose of new product in 1989: On Nov. 21, less than a year after A Show of Hands arrived in stores, they returned with their 13th studio LP, Presto.

Even the most die-hard Rush fans will say that they hate the period from around the mid 1980's to the end of that decade. While some fans (me and KILL and jethro42 and 420yeah) adore the period and appreciate that a band can change its sound without "selling out" as they say, the synths were, at times, a bit overdone during this period, although most Rush fans will tell you that there were definitely some great songs made. Like every era of Rush's career, they usually end things with a live album.
