2 stars This single is certainly one to grab as Rush did not have a lot of 80s singles. It features the one from "Signals" that hit the radio charts. 'New World Man' is a fan favourite with catchy hooks and some strong melodies that are memorable. The track appeared on many live sets over the years.

'Vital Signs' is the weird choice as it is a live version of the lesser known song from "Moving Pictures", but of course this was not available at the time on either of the Live albums of the 80s, "Exit?Stage Left" or "A Show of Hands". It is a decent version, Lifeson proudly smashing it with his killer riffs and Lee sounds excellent singing the now familiar melody.

The picture sleeve is not much to write home abut, just the Rush logo in red on a flat black Spinal Tap background. As always these vinyl singles are for collectors but for the Rush completists are irresistible.
