Overkill in union we stand bass cover The success obtained convinced Daniels to invest some money in the production of the group's first album, but the results were disastrous. They were also supported by Terry Brown, a producer already noted for his work with other Canadian bands of fame, such as April Wine, Thundermug and Procol Harum. But, despite the valuable result, no company wanted to publish it; In 1974 the album 'Rush' was released in Canada by his own company, Moon Records. Rush did not take long to recover the money invested, thanks to his fame as "live-band", and were lucky that Donna Halper, music manager of a major station in Cleveland, casually obtained a copy of the album. She was impressed by the group's potential and its effect on the listeners, and did not hesitate to recommend them to Mercury's directors. Once signed the contract and reedited the disc, at the end of that same year Rush could boast of having sold 75,000 copies. A month after the release of the album, Lee and Lifeson had to face the problem of replacing Rutsey, forced to leave the band for health reasons; the substitute was Neil Peart, a drummer who had already excelled in Toronto clubs. This acquisition proved important, not only because Neil knew how to become one of the most outstanding drum virtuosos in the world, but also because Peart's great interest in science fiction and fantasy literature would be, in short, the greatest inspiration for the lyrics of the group songs. As had happened with C. Lewis, Tolkien and Ayn Rand, all of them notable writers of fantasy literature misunderstood by critics, Peart, who drew inspiration from their books, was also rejected.
