Journey: 1983-02-25 Osaka, Japan (FLAC_SB_2 CD)

Here is a superb soundboard of a Journey show recorded just before they played their Tokyo (the famous 1983-03-02 Young Music Tokyo concert video) shows to finish off their 1983 Japan tour.  This show was recorded during the Japanese leg of the 1983 Frontiers tour.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with this show and it is one that can be cranked up and enjoyed loud.  And the band is on fire too.

(1) 1983-02-25 Osaka, Japan (SB)

I've heard a few other recordings of this show, such as Rubicon's "Diamond Nights", and they don't hold a candle to this specific source.  This one is the best by far and deserves an A+ rating for quality and performance.

If you love Journey live, you'll be glad you grabbed this one...
