This is the very first time I have ever heard of this show (recently) and it has not ever been one in any trading circles. But there still could be copies of it out there and if Dime and Bootradr's Blind Boot Blog aren't the places to find those people who might have a copy, I don't know what forum would be!
A very special thanks goes to "Digital_Journey", "techtuts", and "rockphantom" for getting this copy to me so I could hear it, EAC rip it, and share it with other Journey fans too.

Now, back to the original blog post.
The show is complete other than the fade out in "Who's Crying Now" as the tape flip point is reached. The first track is a pre-show beginning track with Dio music playing over the venue speakers before the show begins. It lasts 3 minutes, 6 seconds in length. Too bad the taper, "Mr. Peach", didn't get the tape started after this point because then we'd have the full "Who's Crying Now" which probably is missing about a minute or maybe 90 seconds before it ended. But it's just one of those things you can never anticipate when taping in the days before digital recorders where tape flips, or even digital mini discs, had to be changed. You never know when the tape may need to be flipped before the show starts.
The unfortunate thing with this recording is that Tarantura got hold of it before the collectors did. They brickwalled the recording making it really hard to do much to improve their lack of a good job. They almost seemed to have wanted to take something good and make it not as good it seems. The show isn't bad but it isn't the great, full range sound it could have been either if Tarantura had not gotten it first.
These Japanese boot labels do not know how to master a show I am convinced. However, "techtuts" is still trying to work with the audio Tarantura put out here for a future remastering of the show. Limited things can be done to improve the show's sound and he will be working on it for a future upgrade if it is possible. This is one reason I hope we can find an unaltered copy of the show before Tarantura got hold of it. Because it sounds like it could have been an excellent recording before Tarantura messed with it.
I created an A4 (I believe that is the CD case) artwork cover for the back with the tabs using the spine on the cardboard case Tarantura used. In other works, there's a front and back artwork that is ready to print and fit into a case if you have one and want to do that.
Hopefully, and only time will tell, there are some more Journey shows out there that have not surfaced yet and when they do they will not surface via a boot label but will surface via individuals instead with some lineage and unaltered audio too.
I hope you enjoy the show...
