Notes:
Not the complete show. Not broadcast (or at least included in my version) are the songs No More Lies, Backtalk, Edge Of The Blade, Escape, and Lights. I have removed the intro as it contains the studio version of Any Way You Want It. I have also removed 2 songs from the encore - After The Fall and Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'. These 2 songs are contained in the official release Journey - Greatest Hits Live. Although the credits on the official release say the Japan songs frmo the album were recorded in May 1983, all records I can find on the internet indicate they were touring in America in May 1983, and I am sure those 2 songs from Greatest Hits Live are taken from this Japan show.

Now that that's out of the way, this is an awesome show! Killer versions of all songs, but definite hightlights are the triple hit of Send Her My Love, Still They Ride (best version ever!!?!), and Open Arms. Separate Ways is also especially rockin' in this show. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
