Notes

There is also a Rush tribute band called Permanent Waves based in Ottawa, Ontario. [1]

The newspaper that appears on the album cover is the Chicago Daily Tribune edition from 1948 which incorrectly reported the result of the US Presidential Election as 'Dewey Defeats Truman'. The Tribune refused permission to use the edition, hence the blanking of the headline.
