Here is a recording that was shared by the Rubicon label but no artwork ever seemed to have surfaced for it. My good friend and Journey fan, "tupchurch", was kind enough to make some artwork for this CD. And I somehow forgot about uploading the show I guess? I still cannot remember why it was still in my "To Upload" folder because it was almost completely ready to be uploaded but it was just waiting there.
This is a great show listening to it through the home theater system or the PC speakers. It won't win any awards for best sounding show. But it is very easy to listen to and it sounds like the band is feeling it in this Uniondale show on this night. I've been listening to "Send Her My Love" and "Still They Ride" via the PC speakers as I've been typing this post up. And it makes me want to find where I put the 2 CD's of it a few months back after listening to it (again) and put them into the better sound system (again).
Steve Perry's vocals are on fire this specific night! Anyone who knows the history, the turmoil, and the story of Journey around the 1983 tour time knows they were going through a problematic period. With the fighting and changes that led to their 1987 demise with Steve Perry, this was one of the most emotional points in the band's history I think. The songs and the way they play them display that. This is a stellar show any Journey fan would like I am sure.

The waveform on this show looks excellent and there is no audio clipping at all from my examination of it. This is a very good recording because you can hear the music and Perry's voice well. Unfortunately, the fidelity is what you might expect from a 1983 stadium recording. It isn't the best but it's far, far from the worst too. Once you start listening to the show you soon adapt to it and realize how nice it does sound. And the clarity soon becomes apparent too! The sounds is very consistent too throughout most of the show making this recording that much better and reliable.
There are some digital errors at the beginning of CD 2 on the song "Escape". Who knows the cause? Maybe someone burned a copy too fast, scratched, or smudged up a disc the music came off of? I have no clue. But it doesn't last but a few seconds at most and everything seems to go back to normal.
I hope you enjoy the show...
