2112 (pronounced "twenty-one twelve") is the fourth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on April 1, 1976, by Anthem Records. After finishing touring for its previous album, Caress of Steel, in early 1976, the band was in financial hardship due to the album's disappointing sales, unfavorable critical reception, and a decline in attendance at its shows.
2112 was also Rush’s first platinum album in Canada, spawning a now-legendary Canadian tour that culminated in a three-night stand at Massey Hall in Toronto, which was recorded for Rush’s first live album, All the World’s a Stage. In 2006, the non-profit Audio-Visual Preservation Trust of Canada chose 2112 as a culturally significant example of Canada’s audio-visual heritage.
This new 40th anniversary super deluxe includes two CDs, three vinyl LPs and a DVD and plenty of memorabilia and other bits (tat?) like badges, a handbill and ticket stub lithos. This disc also features a couple of live archive outtakes from Massey Hall in 1976.
2112 40th Anniversary Liner Notes BY Rob Bowman, Grammy Award Winning Professory of Music. Although it is hard to fathom some forty years after the fact, in February 1976 when the three members of Rush entered Toronto Sound Studios to record their fourth album, 2112, their career literally hung in the balance. Formed in 1968 as a power trio in a Toronto suburb, the group's early influences were blues-based British hard rock bands such as the Yardbirds, Cream, Led Zeppelin, and Jeff Beck.

One of Rush's most recent releases was the 2112: 40th Anniversary box set. Released on December 16, 2016, it contains three LPs, two CDs, and one DVD. This release includes a newly remastered CD and LP of the original 2112 album by Abbey Road Studios, and an additional CD and two LPs of rare, live and previously unreleased material, including newly recorded cover tracks from 2112 featuring Dave Grohl and other artists. - - - A Farewell to Kings: 40th Anniversary.

It seems inconceivable that Rush’s landmark album 2112 is now 40 years old. In fact its real age is a little over the four-decade mark, having originally been released on April 1, 1976. Rush had released three albums up to this point – a self-titled first album, Fly By Night and Caress Of Steel – but by and large, the band were still, to echo a track title from their aforementioned debut, finding their way. And ’76 was categorically not the best year in which to release a record such as 2112. Babylon was all set to burn, Rush’s hard-rock sci-fi shtick was widely regarded as out of place and out of time, and their promo photos – three gawky, long-haired Canadians wearing satin kimonos – didn’t help their cause one iota.
