Rush - A Farewell to Kings (1977)

A Farewell to Kings is the fifth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1977. Geddy Lee played his bass lines on acoustic bass while writing them and also came up with guitar lines. The birds heard on "A Farewell to Kings" & "Xanadu" were recorded outside near Rockfield Studios. The name of the album itself may be derivative of Ernest Hemingway's classic novel A Farewell to Arms. It often deals lyrically with the theme of departure, and through departure, a sort of ascension to a state of better being; this can be said to echo the evolution of society from the days of medieval feudalism and autocratic monarchy, hence "a farewell to kings". - Wikipedia
