Archives is a compilation album by Rush, released in April 1978. The compilation was a complete repackaging of the band's first three albums (Rush, Fly by Night and Caress of Steel). Originally released with a faded grey cover, it was later repackaged with a darker, black cover.[3] The minimalist cover art recycles the image of the "Man in the Star" from the 2112 album.

On the original, vinyl Fly By Night album, the chimes at the end of "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" were printed into the fadeout groove of side one. This meant that on older turntables the chimes would play on forever, until the stylus was physically lifted from the vinyl. On the Archives version, "By-Tor" is 28 seconds longer as these additional chimes were included. [4]

Although Archives has never officially been released on CD, it managed simultaneous gold and platinum certification in the U.S. in 1995.
