This Nagoya is another excellent recording. I'm not sure what the source for this show may be. I was thinking it was likely another Sylph label show at first. But after looking at the waveform, I have my doubts. That signature clipping I've mentioned in some of the other Japan 2001 recordings is not there. There is a small amount of clipping, but it's a very small amount and it doesn't resemble the other Sylph label shows when viewing the waveform at all.
Well, as I was getting ready to zip the files up and upload them I decided to plug in the drive and take a fast look at my hard drive with tons of Journey artwork I started saving in the 1990's. And I did have the artwork for this show and did not realize it too. Just as I had guessed, it is not a Sylph label release either. That just goes to show how much information you can gather from something as simple as looking at the waveform sometimes. And I now know that the Sylph label is responsible for the audio clipping in previous 2001 Japan shows of Journey I have been uploading too. Like I mentioned before, this is a common problem with a lot of labels when they feel they have to mess with audio but they don't have the expertise to really do so (or they don't care). The artwork for this Nagoya 2001 show has no label on it either so it is possible a fan did the whole project? I couldn't tell that from the waveform though :-)
This is also one of the longer shows, like the 2001-01-31 Tokyo show, and it runs over two hours long.

This is the first time I've done a CDDA/MPEG test (checking for lossiness) and got these results like I did on this show. Every track has the "track cannot be qualified" text telling me it is unable to confirm whether it is a lossy MPEG sourced audio or a lossless sourced audio. I've seen this in some test results on a few tracks. But I have never seen every track come back with this result. So a more in depth frequency analysis and spectral analysis will be needed to confirm what the final results are.
The show has an excellent mix where vocals and instruments are heard evenly. The low frequency (or bass) side is not as present as it has been in the other Japanese shows from 2001. But the show and audio still sounds excellent and it is a very enjoyable show.
I hope you enjoy this show...
