This is a master cassette recording of the show, I believe broadcast live as the concert was happening, that was aired over a Japanese FM radio station. And it really sounds superb and is more complete than most recordings of this show out there.
So on it's 32 years ago yesterday celebration, here it is.

The show has some Japanese radio host talk at the beginning and in other parts of it since it was a Japanese broadcast. The Japanese people, like many American people, really were huge Journey fans. Even today, Japan has a huge fan base and a lot of the shows we have are a result of Japanese Journey fans recording them.
There are so many copies of this show circulating that it can become confusing. And this is not the complete show either. I do think it is the most complete copy however. But the full concert does not appear to have been broadcast unfortunately. I may do a project where I add all songs from the various copies that may have tracks not on other copies. It is a future plan anyhow.
I hope you enjoy the show...
