Anyhow, this Tokyo show is an excellent recording and another show in CD cases I had behind the 1998 Reno show. It was also a trade CD-R sourced copy I got in 2001 and was ripping with EAC too. And it tests as being a lossless source recording too.
2001 CD-R trade > 2015 EAC (Secure Mode & Offsets Corrected Modes) > WAV (tested for lossiness) > Audacity (to view waveform, embed metadata/track titles & info, and then to re-encode) > FLAC 8 > TLH (to check for SBE's and create and verify ffp & md5 files) > you

One of the great things about this concert is the number of songs from Arrival, the band's new CD, that get performed rather than the multiple hits that still get played every single show today. There's no "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" (and don't get me wrong, I love that song too) and many other staple songs they always perform. A lot of the regular numbers were replaced by the live versions of songs we didn't get to hear very much. The band's really not done this again since the 2001 tour except for in their 2005 30th Anniversary tour where the shows ran through the whole catalog of the band's hits from the 1975 self title Journey LP to the 2005 Generations CD.
Another great thing about this show it the length of it. Instead of an 80 - 90 minute concert, this one runs close to 2 hours, 10 minutes. I can't recall how long the first show I saw here (the one prior to 9/11) in the United States in 2001 ran, but it definitely wasn't this long and there were more of the main hits played as opposed to as many Arrival hits as they played here in Japan.
The audio does have clipping and I imagine it was at the hands of the Sylph label trying to amplify and/or EQ it. But it still is a great sounding show and one that can easily be enjoyed without much worry about distortion or other problems than can come from clipping the waveform. There are very few audio issues in the show at all. There are a few short parts where it sounds like the microphone cable gets yanked on or moves around causing short bursts of static. But there are very few of those and it's nothing too bad or long lasting either. Steve Augeri sounds great as well as the band too.
I hope you enjoy this show...
