Rare is the eighth studio album by British rock band Asia, released in 2000. It is completely instrumental, and the only performers on this CD are John Payne and Geoff Downes. Tracks 1–16 were created for David Attenborough's nature film, "Salmon: Against the Tides", and 17–22 for an unreleased CD Rom video game.[2] Rare is the first Asia's studio album not titled with a word beginning and ending with the letter 'a'.
