I so fondly remember those days in the late 1970s and early 80s, when Journey burst onto the scene. And, I clearly remember 1981, when their album Escape came out and rocketed to #1 on the album charts. With such songs as Don’t Stop Believin’, Who’s Crying Now, and Open Arms, it was practically the soundtrack of 1981!
Well, it’s now back again! This CD is a reissue of the 1996 remastered album, plus 4 bonus tracks. La Raza Del Sol was on the b-side of the single “Still They Run,” and the other three are from their November 6, 1981 concert in Houston. Also, check out the liner notes, which have some great pictures!
Overall, I think that this is a great album! It has that nice sound of Journey that you heard on the radio (the studio tracks), and some great live tracks. I love this album, and give it my highest recommendations!
