There is some light master cassette crackling on tracks 4 - 6, but it isn't the type that ruins a recording or show. I got three tracks from this show a few days ago in another great Journey recording. They were added on as bonus tracks to that recording. But this is the full show and it's from a very low (1st generation) copy of the master source.
While Gregg Rolie, Santana and Journey keyboardist and vocalist, was not a member of this band, he made a guest appearance for this show. Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie were friends and Rolie is how Schon was introduced to Santana in 1969 and became a member at the age of 15. Rolie and Schnon had left Santana in 1972 with Herbbie Herbert (the Santana manager and "to be" Journey manager). And during the year in between leaving Santana and getting Journey started, Neal Schon was in this short-lived band. You can hear the beginnings of the fusion-rock, first few Journey (pre-Steve Perry I might add) sounds Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie (founding members of Journey) were moving towards. There is very little singing in this show and it's mostly just rock 'n' roll playing without the singing. It's unclear how many tracks Gregg Rolie played on in this show, but he definitely is on a few of them if not all of them.
