I tagged this post as "Bootradr Remaster" but it is not a real remastering job. I just did this because of the work I did do in adding the second source mix as you'll see below. No audio altering was done to this project.
This was not the complete show though. However, I took the four missing tracks not in this upgraded copy from the Gypsy Eye label's Look Into The Future bootleg, and in a decent quality recording too, and added them to the end of the show where they belonged. Gypsy Eye's bootleg release doesn't have the high notes like this Allied Production copy does. It has a little bit of a "muted" sound in the high frequencies. But I went ahead and merged them and did not alter anything in the audio. But the show could use a remastering or EQ job to make it even better sounding. But it still sounds excellent I think and especially when it is compared to earlier versions circulating.

This concert was a benefit concert Journey did for a high school. It was the Burrell Junior High School Benefit show and Journey raised $6,000 for uniforms for the school. Ha! $6,000 back then probably equates to $60,000 nowadays (just kidding...I have no idea).
I created some artwork for the show back in 2000, but this copy already had the LP artwork too that it came with. Since the LP artwork isn't really CD artwork comparable for the rear of a CD case I'll include the back cover artwork I created and it is ready to print and add to the back case of any regular size CD case. The only issue is neither artwork creations are for the full show and the LP artwork is way off on the setlist too.
I have heard that Monitro Studio had studios in San Francisco and San Mateo, California. I even looked it up in the past and confirmed it via the web at some point. This is suppose to be a show that occurred in San Mateo, California from all the research others and myself have done in past years. My back artwork does have San Francisco on it however because in 2000 that's where "we" thought the show was performed.
This show has some really cool and more rare Journey tracks too that you do not usually hear very often live. Songs like "I Would Find You" and "Can Do" are on this copy, and on the full show, which is the Gypsy Eye label's four additional songs, "Look Into The Future" is on it also now.
The date for this show has been in question also for some time. Most have settled on September 2, 1978. The setlist is not in any concert played type of order either.. When Steve Perry was new in Journey (he joined in 1977 and started performing live around March of 1978), they would start their shows off with a few songs without him singing. This show is arranged in that same manner. I believe he comes in on the third song. It is a different order and I'm not sure how the band decided on what was going to be played in this live FM radio show. But it's a great variety of songs and a mix of the new at the time Infinity LP songs as well as songs from the pre Perry era of Journey. Of course Perry, like in the live 1978 concerts, sings with Gregg Rolie on most of the tracks he was never on in the studio released LP's before he was in the band. It really gives them a completely new life too.
As far as information goes, don't be fooled by the song titles on the album (surely a bootleg sold) listed artwork. It lists songs like "Next" as "Midnight Dreamer" and we know that is not the right title. It also shows "Of A Lifetime" as being named "Kohoutek" which is a completely different Journey song altogether. Maybe somebody who isn't blind like me can actually read the text on the back of the artwork. It looks like newspaper clippings added to the album art and they may have some details of help and interest. I just cannot read it myself.
Well, maybe I can read it. The artwork is in a high enough resolution I have been able to zoom in and see the text. Ironically, and four years before "Separate Ways" (1982) was ever created as a song by the band, the back artwork from the LP talks of Aynsley Dunbar leaving the band as Journey and Aynsley "...have gone their separate ways..." it states. In fact, I just recalled this was suppose to be Dunbar's last performance with Journey.
I hope you enjoy the show...
