Now, back to the original blog post.
NOTE: Since my upload earlier this morning, two excellent sets of artwork for this show that were created by Dime members have been shared for this show! I'm adding a new link below just for the new artwork I got and will eventually add it to the show's zipped files and make a new upload soon.
This show is awesome in sound and performance. There are a few split second dropouts in the audio, but not many. I believe there are 3 or 4 of them but they do not ruin the recording. The taper quit recording as the band left the stage after "Wheel In The Sky". He didn't record the audience cheering and missed about a second or two of the encore where Neal Schon's solo begins. Whoever recorded the show did an excellent job, and as always, the Japanese crowds were polite and quiet during the music and showed their enjoyment of the music between songs.
The CD-R's I got in trade long ago were not tracked at the beginning of many of the songs. I'm just quessing here; but I imagine the recorder may have been marking new tracks live as the songs changed. I don't recall if tape recorders in 1982 had that capability but I imagine DAT recorders may have. That's why I took both CD's, removed all track markers, and created new song tracks. Nobody wants to jump to a song and it began at the end of the previous track :-)
The trader I got this show from added bonus tracks and there were two songs, "The Party's Over (Hopelessly In Love)" and "Where Were You" that were from another show. They were uncut and in this order and I have no idea what show they came from (yet). He also had added some tracks from the 1986 Raised on Radio TV Special as filler songs I guess. I left all of these out since they were not part of the Osaka show (not to mention the Raised On Radio TV Special wouldn't be allowed on Dime anyhow).
One thing I really like about this show is the song order and song selections Journey picked. This was the end of the tour for the Escape LP and the setlist here contains more of the earlier Journey as well as the current Journey of the time. "The Party's Over (Hopelessly In Love" near the beginning of the show and "Don't Stop Believin" in the middle; that wasn't the normal Journey lineup of songs. The setlist looks like a late 1978 through 1981 excellent mix of songs.
NOTE: Do any of you notice anything not right with the Journey 1982 Osaka tee-shirt in the image below :-)
I hope you enjoy this show...
