I originally got this show with Japanese FLAC files, or more precisely, Japanese text FLAC files. And that really creates a problem when using programs in English to prepare, check, verify, and even play the files. But after working on the files for about 90 minutes, I was able to do what needed to be done and convert everything over to English where it works properly now.
This is one of the more rare Journey shows out there. Today, on the show's 32nd anniversary, I'll be able to listen to a copy of the show for the first time ever myself. I have burned it to two CD's and I am going to crank it up and experience what I had all but forgotten I had until I found it on my drive today. And that excites me!

The show is a great sounding show, however; it is not excellent or superb sounding (yet). But with some time spent on a good remastering, something I may do soon, this could easily be upgraded to an excellent show I am positive.
UPDATE 1: This show sounds a lot better through the home theater system than I even first realized through the PC. I really like it. Some parts are better than others, but it is very enjoyable as I jam out now!
The show does not sound bad at all and you shouldn't worry about that. The band can be heard fine but the taper sounds like he or she was a little ways away from the stage and the show sounds like it could use a little amplification too. And there is plenty of room to do this you can easily see when viewing the waveform. So, keep a lookout for an upgrade sometime soon.
UPDATE 2 (2015-10-18): The better sounding source and remastered copy of this show in the lossless format can now be found HERE
I hope you enjoy this show...
