I'm supposed to wake up in less than 5 hours to catch my flight to Vegas in the morning, yet I'm in the music room listening to Journey. I tried to crash out, but it didn't take. I felt like I owed one more post to the blog before splitting town. Just sucks it has to be a double live album.
It's a good album though, just bitching because it's taking longer to get through. Like most people my age, I was introduced to Journey through the Escape album, so it's interesting to hear this live record that came out before that one that shows just how popular they already were.
And it also really proves how underrated they were as musicians. Neal Schon just does not get enough credit for being a bad ass. And I thought the bass solo was pretty good by Ross Valory. As far as bass solos goes, that is. I really don't need to get into Steve Perry's chops.
Favorite cut on the record is easily, "Any Way You Want It".
