Journey: 1978-07-01 Dallas, TX (FLAC_SB_1 CD)

SPECIAL NOTE (2013-09-15): Gypsy Eye, a boot label I use to respect for lossless quality audio, has taken this show I've worked on and they're selling it on Japanese websites and elsewhere.  This has been confirmed as a copy with an mpeg audio stream (aka mp3).  I could care less about any credit for the work, but I do despise it being passed along by Gypsy Eye as a lossless version they're selling now.  Don't buy this exact same show and version you're getting for free here because it is still not known to be available in a lossless format!  The lossless source is in Bill Graham's vault.

This Journey concert I'm uploading, one I just recently mentioned in my Aerosmith Texxas Jam 1978 upload saying "I hope it surfaces someday soon", has surfaced!  This show is still not circulating anywhere and never has as far as I know.  I think it probably just recently surfaced but I'm not sure?  This is an excellent soundboard of Journey's Texxas Jam 1978 concert in Dallas.  Now, I just need to wish that the June 12th, 1982 Houston Astrodome Journey Texxas Jam show will surface!  And I do!

This is a great recording that I made even better.  Unfortunately, the sound mix (presumably from the soundboard) was off during all of the first song and it gets corrected (or better) during the second song.  But it gets even better when the third song starts.  Whoever was mixing the sound at the show did a good job, but they also change the sound a few times during the show.  It still sounds great, but if it already sounded great, then leave it alone.  I did very little in EQ'ing the show.  But I did a slight EQ'ing and I used some cleaning filters/settings to sharpen the sound as well as remove most of the tape hiss.

The source for this audio is an unaltered Wolfgang's Vault (aka the late Bill Graham's masters) recording.  As quoted on Wolfgang's Vault regarding this recording, "(they want to be) providing you with a pure and uncut representation of what was captured during the performance".  My clean up is an improvement and that's why I'm uploading it.  But if anyone want's the raw, 100% unaltered version, just leave a comment and let me know.  Personally, I prefer to get it unaltered because I can then do what I want to do with the recording.  But I also like a better sounding recording, and I know that many people who may download this show mmight not have the software and/or knowledge to clean the recording up.  So, I'm uploading my cleaned version.  Like I said already, I can post the unaltered version too.

LINEAGE:
Wolfgang's Vault > captured via PC soundcard and saved as 44.1 kHz/16 bit WAV file > Media Creator 2010 Pro (for hiss removal, EQ'ing, track splitting & naming, and converting to FLAC) > TLH (for fixing SBE's,  creating ffp & md5 files, and then verifying) > you

NOTE: I do not know the source's audio specifications, or Wolfgang's Vault bandwidth (i.e. bitrate, sample rate, etc).  But since I do not know, I took the 44.1 kHz/16 bit (CD quality standard) file I captured in my digital copy of the streaming show and left it in that format when I converted it over to FLAC.  I've been told Wolfgang's Vault shows are the highest bitrate (320 kbps) mp3's and no longer FLAC, but I don't know for sure.  Even if this is a glorified mp3 (and I don't know if it is or isn't) that was streaming, it sounds great.  This is just a heads up for those like me that want to maintain a source files' integrity.  I just wish I knew the source file's original specifications.

A super big THANK YOU goes to "tupchurch", a great friend and Journey fan too, who alerted me to this newly found Journey 1978 Texxas Jam recording.  I have never seen this show anywhere but I knew it had to exist.

If you lived in Texas during the late 1970's - late 1980's (1978 - 1988 actually), then chances are you remember hearing commercials for the "Texxas Jam" concert event each year.  Each year was up to a three day event with multiple, "hot on the charts" bands of the time performing their concerts.

And speaking of "hot", this was a burning hot Texas July day in 1978 when Journey played.  And the Cotton Bowl is an outdoor football stadium.  From the beginning of the recording, you can hear how (miserably) hot it must have been from the comments about the heat throughout the whole show.  The Cotton Bowl had the huge, firefighter hoses that they used to spray water out across the crowds just like they did when I saw the last Texxas Jam (being called Monsters of Rock too) in 1988 at Rice Stadium.  It was a way to help keep people in the crowd from overheating too much.  Texas summers are not nice days to be outdoors.  And packed together with 80,000 other people like at this 1978 Texxas Jam, you don't want to be outside at all  (unless you're watching Journey of course).

Wow, I just found something online that (1) backs up what I just said above and (2) excites me a lot.  A documentary of the 1978 Texxas Jam is reportedly coming out in Summer 2013!!!  See the video trailer I just added below :-)  Oh boy, there are a lot of cool Texxas Jam 1978 - 1988 items I'm finding.  I'm only adding  a few to this upload and they are the same images as I'll add below (no video added).

I hope you enjoy this historic rock and roll show from the very first Texxas Jam (and they did spell it "Texxas" too)...

Led Zeppelin: 1972-05-28 Brussels, Belgium (FLAC_AUD_2 CD)

This is a very good recording of Ledc Zeppelin's show in Brussels in 1972.  I was going to upload the master cassette version yesterday (the show was 41 years ago yesterday), but after checking out this Empress Valley Supreme Disc version, I decided to upload it instead.  I think this is a better sounding (and I'm sure EQ'ed/remastered) version.

Part 1 - 1972-05-28 Brussels, Belgium (AUD/EVSD)

This recording is very good and you do not hear the audience very much.  However, Robert Plant spends more time telling the crowd to "shut up" and "sit down" than you normally hear in other rowdy Zeppelin shows.  In between a lot of the songs on CD 1, he spends time trying to get people quite.  This is especially true during the quieter songs.  But the rowdy, loud crowd is not heard in this recording.  In fact, I have been wondering where the actual taper must have been in order to not get the loud crowd Plant keeps complaining about.

I listened to this show yesterday (actually the same show but the master cassette version) not realizing it was the 41st anniversary of the show and I really loved it.  It'd been quite a few years since I'd listened to my older "Burning Ticket" (Baby Face label) copy I'd gotten in a 1990's CD trade.  The master cassette version was a huge upgrade in my opinion and I believe this EVSD version is even cleaner.  The EVSD version doesn't have as much hiss from the tape in it as the master copy does.  But the highs are still there and the bass is too.  It is a great sounding show, both performance-wise and sound-wise.

I hope you enjoy the show...

Journey: 2013-05-22 Newcastle, United Kingdom (FLAC_AUD_2 CD)

Here's Journey's show from four nights ago on their European leg of their current tour.  The setlist seems to be the same as their Australian leg of the same tour back in March in that they play the same era of Journey's songs. However, this may be the first show I've noticed without "Anyway You Want It"?

Journey does add "Chain Reaction" and "Be Good To Yourself" to this show's setlist.  But they drop "Anyway You Want It", "Who's Crying Now", and "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" it looks like.  And they have Dean Castronovo, the drummer, singing a few songs too.  They had Dean sing a few songs in recent years.  And Dean has done an excellent job  as far back as 2002 on the songs Journey no longer plays from the earlier "Steve Perry era" Journey songs.  But still, there is nothing like "Patiently" or "Winds of March" in this show.  I'm thinking they may never do these old, great classics again.  But I'm hoping I'm wrong too.

Thanks to "Soreballs" for recording and uploading this show.

The original uploader noted that both Thunder and Whitesnake, the two opening bands, had much better and louder sound.  I've been to Journey shows where the opening acts were the same way (louder and cleaner) too.  However, this a very good recording of the Journey show and one that can easily be enjoyed.  Journey's setlist and length of their concert time (or playing time) seems to be shorter than it is in the United States though.  This was almost a 1 CD show.  But it ran into the 82+ minute point and that made it a 2 CD show.

As big of a fan as I am of Journey, I'm really wanting them to change up their setlist and start doing some songs they haven't donw since the 1970's - 1980's.  They need to do this for the fans.  Personally, I could care less if someone not as familiar with their music doesn't recognize "Lady Luck", "Something To Hide", etc.  And even if the singer, Arnel Pineda at the time, can't hit the notes Steve Perry did in years gone by, I don't care.  I want to hear these songs and many more from a period of superb Journey music.

And I'd love to hear the pre-Perry era stuff too like "On A Saturday Night" or "Of A Lifetime".  Journey's 2005 tour, their 35th anniversary, 3 CD's worth of music tour, did just that.  And it was much better especially for the fans like me who've stayed with them and been to every concert in my area (and many out of my area) since they started touring again in 1998.

I'd like to also hear some of the songs from the Steve Augeri era of Journey too.  They made some excellent CD's and played many of the songs from them in the years during and after 1998.  But since last year at least, it has been the same songs in almost the same order.  And don't misunderstand me.  I love the songs they're still doing.  But I want to hear a change (or "Change For The Better"...a good, strong song) in songs they play every show.  The fans wouldn't mind if Journey played longer shows to get as many of the old and new songs in as possible.  I guess we'll see what happens when they get back home and start touring the United States again.  I'm still waiting to hear "Winds of March" too!

As always, I hope you enjoy the show...

Journey: 2013-03-01 Melbourne, Austraalia (FLAC_AUD_1 CD)

This is a very good recording of one of Journey's first few shows on their new 2013 tour.  I've also got two separate sources of the next night's show in Sydney, Australia and I'll upload the best of the two recordings here soon.

This would have been an excellent concert to have seen.  Not only did Journey perform, but so did Deep Purple.  I'm guessing Journey was the opening band and Deep Purple was the headline act from what I've seen online. I hope this lineup continues in the United States this year!

Thanks to "Brother Ruprecht" for recording and making this show available!

I haven't listened to this show all of the way through yet.  But it sounds like a very good recording of the show and is very clean sounding too.

I wish Journey would start playing some of their older 1970's songs again.  But in this show, it is the regular songs we've been hearing for a while.  I realize they don't have a singer anymore that can hit the very high notes Steve Perry could in 1978.  And Arnel does a good job of singing what he sings.  Heck, even Steve Perry probably couldn't hit those notes nowadays.  But I'd still like to hear songs like "Winds of March"; a song they haven't played since 1980!

I'm sure the setlist and even the concert's length will improve as Journey hits the United States with those shows.  And once I start this upload, I'm going to burn this show to CD and give it a good listen tomorrow (actually, later today since it's after midnight) as I do a few things around the house.

I hope you enjoy the show...

Journey: 1981-09-05 East Troy, WI (FLAC_SB/FM Master Cassette_2 CD)

I've collected a number of versions of this show through the years.  My first silver CD copy was from the label Wild Street and was titled "Blue Sky Party in Chicago".  Obviously, the label putting that one out didn't realize the show was in Wisconsin and didn't even know all of the song titles as can be seen on the 2 CD set's artwork.

This upload is one of the best copies I have.  There are a few spots where I think the tape it was sourced from changes and may need pitch/speed adjustments made.  But if that's the case or not, it still sounds excellent.  As with a lot of older shows, it was an FM broadcast at some point and time.

This specific upload is from the master cassette used to record it and it was transferred via analog means to CD-R.  This is a great performance with at least one song never heard on any Journey album or even any other live shows circulating out there.  Most likely, this is the one and only time "Too Far Gone" was ever played.  This source has not been EQ'ed or altered in any way.  That may be why is sounds so good (a lot of bad EQ jobs get circulated many times).

Thanks goes out to KRW_Co for doing the master cassette transfer and sharing this show!  I left KRW's original EAC log files in this upload in a folder I created for them.  They provide additional technical/quality related information about his transfer that people (like myself) may be interested in.

This concert, being one from the 1981/82 "Escape" LP tour, has a few interesting items in it.  One such item is the setlist.  It's not the normal 1981/82 Journey setlist played at most shows.  Sure; most of it is.  But songs such as "Do You Recall" and "Lovin' You Is Easy" were not normally played on the "Escape" tour. These songs got left off after 1980's "Departure" LP world tour.  But then there are songs not in this show that Journey later added, such as "Mother, Father" and "Open Arms" that they appear to have not played too.  Just two months later, in their 1981-11-05 and 1981-11-06 Houston, Texas shows, more "Escape" LP songs had already been added to the normal setlist.  So this show is more of a mix of both the pre "Escape" (all Steve Perry era) songs they were known for and the newly released "Escape" songs that made them superstars.

One other thing I like about this Alpine Valley show is the monologue Perry gives between the songs "Too Late" and "Who's Crying Now".  He talks about how he an Jonathan Cain wrote the song one rainy day when they were down and out over lost loves.  As Steve Perry mentions, "...this song is about the one that got away; the one you wish you still had..."  We've all been there before and it takes me back to a specific girl or two from my high school years (and after).  Perry does some awesome improvising and adds a little extra to the beginning of "Who's Crying Now" that I think Journey fans will enjoy.

This is a great recording, one that I may even find a better copy of (and this one is NOT at all bad) around the house.  If one surfaces here or elsewhere, I'll upload it too.

I'll add artwork to this 2 CD set even though it won't be a perfect match necessarily (since this source never had any created for it).  Let me see what I have artwork-wise.  I'll add the "Blue Sky Party in Chicago" artwork if I cannot find anything closer to fit this source.

I hope you enjoy the show...

Santana: 1971-05-01 Montreux, Switzerland (Pro Shot DVD)

This is a very rare Santana concert from the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in 1971.  I've only seen this video available once, and I grabbed it when I did.  There was not much information on it but it has some very good video of three of Journey's original members in it.  Neal Schon, who was 17 years old then, Gregg Rolie, and even Journey's manager, Herbie Herbet (through the Steve Perry years and before that) are in this video a lot.  Personally, I like Neal Schon's guitar playing the best.

This is a great video of the show too.  It starts out with some tape tracking issues but cleans up very quickly.  And the video even gets better very soon too.  It almost looks as if there were two video sources but I doubt it.  I wish I knew the lineage of this DVD, but unfortunately, I never got that.  I'm not sure where it came from or where to find it again (other than here and on my hard drives).  The sound is great and the video is great.  It's not excellent or superb, but it is definitely very good and very watchable.  I'm surprised at how good it is.

One other thing I find interesting in this show is how often members of the band, besides Carlos Santana, are shown.  In other "Schon & Rolie era" Santana videos I have, they barely show other band members.
I hope you enjoy this show from 42 years and 2 weeks ago...

Evanescence: 1999-05-07 Little Rock, AR (AUD Shot DVD)

This is a very rare and different Evanescence show I found about five years ago.  It is a concert from their home venue, Vino's (a pizza joint), in Little Rock.  This was shot before the band had any idea they'd become famous (around 2002) and it isn't your regular Evanescence show.  I doubt anyone at the pizza place this night, 14 years and a week ago (I should've uploaded this on 5/7), was thinking "this band is going to be big".

The first ten minutes or so is the band having instrument/electrical issues with their sound.  And after that, it cleans up good.  But there is no bass player or drum player (I've heard they didn't show up but don't know if that is true) and the only two members I can see that were with the band when they hit it big a few years later are Ben Moody and Amy Lee.  And Ben Moody left the band, after making it big, in 2004.

It's also pretty cool to see Amy Lee with another female backup singer through the whole hour long show.  They play songs that made them famous a few years later as well as songs from their (never released but I have it) "Origins" CD that they'd give out for free after gigs.  The also play a B.O.C. cover tunes too.  This is a rare and cool video!

The piece of junk Roxio (NEVER BUY ROXIO SOFTWARE...IT IS FAULTY AND THEIR SUPPORT IS A JOKE) DVD building program I used to create this DVD years ago would not let me create chapters where I wanted them and kept crashing as I tried building a menu.  The option to create chapters where I wanted them was grayed out and I could never get any help or fixes from Roxio.  This is the second version of their software I've tried on a variety of PC's that was worthless (and about $200) and problem causing.

I've only seen this video one other time on a site last year.  I downloaded it and the quality was not as good as this video's quality.  There was a text file in that download that stated this is the earliest known video recording of Evanescence.  It also gave the names of most of the artists playing in this small venue show.  That is where I got the names listed above.

The band has changed members a few times through the years.  And as one might expect, it was due to disagreements, fighting, and that sort of stupid stuff.  But Amy Lee and her awesome voice has remained in Evanescence, and without her, the band would not be able to continue.  The problem with that is, I'm pretty sure she knows this!  Therefore; she's the queen bee in the hive and most likely gets her way since she is also the founding member still in the band.  But this hasn't been bad for the fans because they're still making excellent music, touring, and doing very well.

I hope you enjoy this "before they were stars" show...

Evanescence: 2004-02-21 Madison, WI (FLAC_AUD_1 CD)

Here's a great, early career Evanescence concert.  I may do a little remastering of this show in the future and give it a more full sound.  It sounds great as it is.  But I know I could make it better sounding too, and if I do, I'll update it here in this post most likely.

I tried fixing a problem each track has but was unable to remove it.  It's nothing that ruins the recording though.  There is a pop at the beginning of each track.  Whoever created the original tracks most likely created the pops accidentally.  I did fix the sector boundary errors (SBE's) too.

Enjoy the show...

Aerosmith: 1973-09-26 Cincinnati, OH (FLAC_SB/Studio_1 CD)

This is an excellent, recorded live in the studio, rocking Aerosmith show from when they were pretty new.  I'm not sure if this was a radio broadcast or not, but this source definitely wasn't recorded from a radio broadcast.

Two tracks had to be removed from this upload because they were officially released on the Aerosmith album "Pandora's Box".  Tracks 8 and 11, the officially released and removed tracks, don't interrupt the flow of the show fortunately.  If I didn't mention it, you might never even have noticed it.

One thing about this show that is interesting (besides how excellent/superb it sounds) is the tape keeps rolling as the announcer goes to commercial breaks.  That alone tells us that this came from the master reel it was recorded to or an unedited copy.  I have no idea what generation this recording I'm uploading is, but I can say it is definitely a low generation copy.  And it's in great stereo too.

One thing about this studio show is there re two dates for it out there.  The first, 1979-09-26, is what I'm using (it makes more sense).  The second date is 1973-10-10.  I don't have anything other than years of experience in dealing with live shows to back up my idea on why the date was probably the 9/26 one.  But I imagine this show was recorded on 9/26 and then aired (or re-aired) on 10/10.  This sounds like it was a live radio broadcast as it was happening.  And there is a very small crowd in the studio too.  I imagine they won tickets over the radio to be part of the crowd so it had a live sound with a very small number of people cheering between songs (some songs).  Then again, it might have been the studio or band's friends doing this too?

This, to me, is what Aerosmith should've continued sounding like as they moved towards and into the 1980's.  But, unfortunately they didn't.  So I haven't really collected too much post 1980 Aerosmith shows because I just don't like the lack of rock 'n' roll they played after 1980.  And like I mentioned in my previous Aerosmith posting, don't get mad if you disagree :-)  This is just my opinion and preference.

I hope you enjoy this almost 40 year old awesome performance...

Aerosmith: 1978-07-04 Dallas, TX (FLAC_SB_1 CD)

This is an excellent soundboard of Aerosmith's Texxas Jam 1978 concert.  This show has an excellent soundboard mix and the show is very well balanced.  I've got it cranked up now and it sounds good. In the song "Milk Cow Blues", Ted Nugent joins the band on stage and plays with them.

If you lived in Texas during the late 1970's - late 1980's (1978 - 1988), then chances are you remember hearing commercials for the "Texxas Jam" concert event each year.  Each year was up to a three day event with multiple, hot on the charts bands performing their concerts.  I know Dallas and Houston both had Texas Jam concerts on different days in the end.  Many big bands, who later became even bigger and more popular, played the various Texxas Jams.  Journey, one of my favorite bands, played multiple Texxas Jam years including this one from 1978.  I just have not ever seen a Journey Texxas Jam show surface.  NOTE: Journey''s show surfaced shortly after this posting and I have posted it here!!!

There was something unique about this specific Texxas Jam.  1978 was the very first year for the event.  Aerosmith headlined the 1978 Texxas Jam from the research I did.  Hopefully, some of the many other excellent bands' shows will surface someday soon.  I'd really like to find some of the REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, etc, etc concerts too!

I've never been a huge Aerosmith fan personally.  Don't misunderstand what I'm saying.  I'm not saying I don;t like Aerosmith.  I've liked a lot of their songs through the years.  But in the 1980's, they started putting out songs I hated too.  "Jaime's Got A Gun", "(Dude) Looks Like A Lady", "Love In An Elevator", and many more were terrible I thought.  I'm not trying to make anybody upset because I know many other people loved songs like the ones I just mentioned.  To each their own is my motto :-)  But I didn't really listen to Aerosmith because of these songs being given in overdose play on the radio airwaves.  It pushed me to not listening to (more specifically buying their albums) their music as much.  And I was missing out on a lot of great music too I've learned.  I'm not talking about on the LP's with songs I hated.  I'm talking about their music prior to the material I didn't care for.

Over the last five or six years, I've been getting a collection of Aerosmith shows between 1973 and 1978 and loving most of them.  I've even collected a few, great 1980's concerts on audio and video.  To me, their earlier years were the band at their best!  They were on fire and sounded great during the 1973 to 1974 years especially.  I'm not up-to-date on the band's complete history.  But I do think 1973 was the year they got started.  They may have been formed before that, but I think their popularity was catching on in 1973 and that's why there are a number of excellent shows starting in 1973 that have surfaced over time.

I just got off the phone with a friend who called me.  He went to all but two Texxas Jams in Dallas in the 10 years the event was held.  I remember going to the last Texxas Jam in Houston (possibly second from last too) in 1988 with a group of friends.  It was an extremely hot day at Rice Stadium, but it was and still is a good memory too.  I just have to find my ticket stub for the show that I know I have misplaced somewhere around the house!

I hope you enjoy this historic rock and roll show from the very first Texxas Jam.

And if you're a mother; Happy Mother's Day too you!  You must be a pretty cool mom to be looking for good rock 'n' roll like this...

Boston: 1979-04-20 Tokyo, Japan (FLAC_AUD_2 CD)

Your mom always told you it was good to share, right?  Well, she was right.  After uploading my 1979-04-18 Boston show on Dime yesterday, today a Dime member shared the third night's show that has been missing!

This is the third night of Boston on their 1979 Japan leg of their tour.  And it sounds great!  I've already uploaded the first (1979-04-18) and second (1979-04-19) shows here.  So if you want them, feel free to grab them.

There is an error on CD 1 on the last track.  "A Man I'll Never Be", around the 5 minutes, 11 seconds mark, has a temporary flaw.  It's a digital error that occurs but soon after quits.  There is some skipping and pops at the error point.  But it's nothing to worry about because the rest of the show, and even the rest of the song, seems to be just fine.

Thanks to "tonsofsobs" for sharing this show and to "Blackmagic" for getting him this show to share.

For some unknown reason,  "Foreplay/Long Time" wasn't done by the band this third and last night in Tokyo in 1979.  It doesn't sound as if the track was removed or there are any gaps or cuts where the song goes.  It just seems like Boston didn't play it this night.

So, all three nights are now here!  I don't have any artwork for the show but will add a ticket scan to the bottom of this posting that was posted in a reply to my upload of the 4/18 show on Dime yesterday (a second surprise after sharing).  It's not the ticket for the night of this show being uploaded, but it is from the set of the three nights they played Tokyo in April of 1979...

NOTES:
I didn't have a way to transfer this HD broadcast other than via my DVR to the standalone DVD burner when I made this project.  I'm still slightly confused as to the 4:3 aspect ratio of this recording.  I chose to transfer the HD broadcast in its native 16:9 aspect ratio format and I built the DVD the same way.  But it seems to have transferred it in the 4:3 ratio format possibly and burned it to my DVD the same way.  But there's an easy solution to seeing it like it was broadcast and recorded to my DVR.

On some of my DVD/Blu-Ray players the video fills the screen like it should (16:9).  But on some of the older DVD players, it displays as if it were a 4:3 ratio recording.  I just double checked the files used to create the DVD and they do have 4:3 properties.  But there is a simple fix on any modern day TV.  Just use your TV or DVD player's remote control and choose "stretch" (or whatever term your TV or player uses) and it fits perfectly on the screen with no stretching.  It's very simple to do.

I still don't understand why the output was in the 4:3 aspect ratio?  I strongly suspect the standalone unit, even though it plays back the DVD in the widescreen 16:9 way, doesn't truly transfer/burn the video in the 16:9 widescreen format to disc.

I've been using a Happauge PVR to transfer everything digitally lately.  I'm still looking for a better PVR to do my digital video transfers too.  Does anyone have any recommendations?

Anyhow, I removed all commercials and non Journey related talk in the broadcast other than the first minute or so of the "Today" show's opening.  And I also added transitional effects for a smooth flow where the commercials and junk like that would have been.  The project turned out very nice I believe.

I hope you enjoy the show...

Thanks to "eclect" for recording this show and sharing it on Dime.  It is a good recording, but being outside, some sacrifices obviously had to be made and could not be helped.  Feist's voice and the instruments are all very clean and clear.  The taper did a good job of capturing the show and it sounds just fine.

This is also a short set for Feist and is about 41 minutes long.  That's one hour shorter than her show when I saw her three months earlier.  I'm guessing she was one of the opening acts at the festival.  Actually, I just found some information online saying she was the 12th band to play (out of how many I have no idea).  Six out of the nine songs she played were off of her newly (October 2011 I think) released "Metals" album she was touring on.  So there were only three of her older songs played and they were played with the newer style/sound she had been experimenting with.

I hope you enjoy the show...

Boston: 1979-04-18 Tokyo, Japan (FLAC_AUD_2 CD)

This is an excellent recording of Boston's first of three nights of playing in Tokyo in 1979.  I recently uploaded the second night, 1979-04-19, and a lot of people have grabbed that one.  So, I figured I'd go ahead and upload their frist night's show now.

I noticed something interesting as I was getting this show and the artwork together.  This date (1979-04-18), being Boston's first night in Tokyo, was also Journey's last night in Tokyo that I uploaded recently.  Boston played at Budokan Hall (larger venue) and Journey played at Shibuya (a 2084 seating venue...much smaller) on this night.  Wow, what a choice that would've been.  Do I go see Boston or Journey tonight?  I'd have picked Journey myself, but I would have hated to miss seeing Boston that night too!

I have no idea of the lineage of this recording and I got it from a Japanese sharing site I could not even read most of the text on (I don't know Japanese).  But I did fix the sector boundary errors (SBE's) using TLH before this upload.

As with so many shows recorded in Japan, this one is another great one.  It truly sounds like a soundboard recording throughout much of the show.

I think I recently stated I liked the 1979-04-19 show better and thought it sounded better.  I'm going to have to recheck this now.  This might be the better recording.  Either way, they're both great shows and great recording from Tokyo 1979!

I'm still searching for a lossless copy of the third and closing show from Boston's three nights playing in Tokyo before they left Japan.  he date of the last Tokyo 1979 show is 1979-04-20.  Please let me know if you have it or know where to find it :-)

What a time it must have been to have lived in Japan, had tickets to all of these excellent bands and performances we've collected over the years, and to have just said "I was there" during the 1970's (and later)!

I hope you enjoy the show...

Journey: 1979-08-09 Chicago, IL (FLAC_SB/Pre FM_2 CD)

This is a superb sounding show from Journey in Chicago of 1979.  This was a pre-recorded show made in August of 1979 and it has aired a number of times through the years.  There have been all types of different quality versions of this show that have surfaced through the years.  This includes both shorter broadcasted versions and the full (like this upload) versions of the show.  This unnamed upload is one of the two best (I think the best) versions out there.

Even though I included the artwork for the "Shining In The Silver Moon" version to the upload, this is NOT that version of the show.  I just noticed something else on this artwork.  It has the wrong date and venue on it.  I'm not going to re-upload and rework everything I just did, so just keep this in mind if you chose to use the "Shinning In The Silver Moon" artwork.  This concert was NOT recorded at the Aragon Ballroom and it was NOT on 1979-05-28.  The artwork is definitely wrong on these two pieces of information!

This upload has been speed/pitch corrected and I fixed the sector boundary errors (SBE's) it originally had too.

Enjoy this superb quality, complete version of the show.  And if you want to create any artwork for it, please do so and share it here.

This reminds me of something I've noticed.  Very, very seldom does anyone leave comments.  And when they do, it's usually to say something like "a link is dead".  I know people just grab and run (I even do it at times) nowadays.  But it'd be nice to hear some feedback, requests, etc if you like the shows or not.  So please, give me your feedback in the comments area.  It may be a while before I see some of the messages at times due to me being legally blind.  But I do catch up and read them all eventually.

As always, I hope you enjoy the show...

Journey: 1979-04-15 Tokyo, Japan (FLAC_SB Speed Corrected_2 CD)

Here is an excellent soundboard of Journey's third from last concert in Tokyo in 1979.  They did three shows in Tokyo in 1979 (I've got them all).  They played 1979-04-15, 04-16, and 04-18; so obviously this was the first night's show.  I've already uploaded the last night's show (04-18) here in the past.

I did fix both CD 1 & CD 2 sector boundary errors (SBE's) that existed in the original, Japanese FLAC download I got.  I also renamed the tracks, originally in Japanese characters, because the audio program I was using to go ahead and rename tracks (anyhow) would lock up (presumably the program couldn't read Japanese text).  So it's good to go now!

This show has some unique songs Journey didn't normally do live, and even if they did, we don't have other live recordings of the songs.  They added both "Lady Luck" and "Can Do" to the set and put the songs in during the latter half of the show but before the ending songs.

This is a superb performance by Journey.  There are a few flaws in the recording, but they definitely do not ruin the show.  And this source I'm uploading is the very best one I've found.  The high's are clean and clear unlike other copies of the show I've heard and the high's don't create the hiss associated with EQ'ing the tracks.  It's my opinion that this is just a better source than other copies that have surfaced.

This is Journey in their prime.  It was after they were known of and were on the radio, but it was also before they became superstars in 1981 with the release of their "Escape" LP.  They're on fire and sound great.

Enjoy the show...

Ted Nugent: 1976-07-28 Houston, TX (FLAC_SB Master_1 CD)

This is a cool show I forgot I had until earlier today.  This is a copy of a first generation cassette sourced from the master, mono soundboard recording.  This concert was being aired live over KILT Houston (I think AM radio back then) and this source is from the master and not a recording from the radio broadcast of the show.  This recording is very clean and sounds excellent!

Here is some interesting information from the original source for this recording.  I'm just doing the "copy & paste" deal here on their comments.

**************************copy & paste start**************************
ORIGINAL NOTES:
---------------------
Recorded back before all the bullsh** stage banter, and the constantly running off of the mouth this first generation soundboard was given to one of my best friends (who was a big fan) by Ted himself. The story goes he was giving Uncle Ted a lift to the airport and on a whim asked him if he had any unreleased live recordings (my buddy's a big live music collector) and Ted proceeded to pull this tape out of his bag telling him it was off the board and he could get another one. Eventually, he and Ted had a falling out, apparently Ted can be a bit of a pain in the a** (imagine that) and my buddy demanded an apology that Ted never gave. Anyway, this has been a guilty pleasure over the years, recorded during one of the same tours (not shows) that produced "Double Live Gonzo" and I've snail mail traded it and offer it here with my friends approval.

Not a perfect soundboard, the instruments are slightly "back" but it's pretty clean and this is a new transfer that I'm more pleased with than the previous one I put into circulation.

Thank's Too  mjk5510 For The Show And Story

Enjoy!
