I have been a fan of Steve Perry's voice for it seems the bulk of my life...and while those who replaced him by and large were virtual clones of his voice and style, they all lacked one important thing: they weren't Steve Perry. Let me be clear: a couple have actually been VERY good (the current singer in particular is wonderful) but while they all ((sound)) like Steve, NONE of them sing with the passion and raw emotion that Steve brought to his music. One may argue otherwise, but success without Steve has been fleeting at best and seems to back my theory--but that may also be a factor of many other additional things I did not mention.
With all of my love to Steve's vocals, you may be interested to know that my two favorite Journey songs do NOT have Perry singing lead. "Feeling That Way/Anytime" have always been my absolute favorite songs, and feature Steve on backing vocals, a job he didn't have very often, thankfully...but on these two songs, fits absolutely to perfection. Disc 1 seems to have the majority of their radio hits, while Disc 2 has fewer hits, but a lot of Journey love nevertheless.Read more ›
Journey's GH & GH2
The double-disc is simply their best offering ever; its got most anything you can
ask for. There will never be a perfect GH from any act. This one is as close as it can get imho.
If you're a Journey fan, this is a no-brainer, buy it today if you dont alrdy own it!
Speaking of, its time for some weehours of the morning listening to "Any way you want it" and drinking some frosty beverages.
To save you a little time, here's the differences:
Only on GH 1&2: Stay Awhile, Little Girl
Only on GH 1&2 AND Essential Journey Limited Edition 3.0: Suzanne, Feeling That Way, Walks Like A Lady, When I Think Of You
Only on Essential Journey: Message of Love, Somethin' to Hide, Line of Fire (live), The Eyes of a Woman, Baby I'm a Leavin' You, Be Good to Yourself
The Essential Journey Limited Edition 3.0: I Can See It in Your Eyes (from Trial by Fire) and live versions of Don't Stop Believin' (live in Houston 11/6/1981), Stone in Love (live in Houston 11/6/1981), Mother, Father (live in Houston 11/6/1981). Non-live versions of the live versions are on both GH1&2 and The Essential Journey (non-limited edition).
So basically, unless you find the The Essential Journey Limited Edition, Greatest Hits 1&2 is almost every song found on The Essential Journey (non Limited Edition). The six songs only disc 2 of Essential were not songs I really wanted, so I stuck with GH1&2.
I'm very happy with the memories this collection is bringing back.
This is a purchase I am very glad to have made.

What can I say, other than you get some of the best of Journey's earlier hits in a box set. I really miss Journey with Steve Perry. Read morePublished 21 days ago by DC
Knew all the songs in the first CD and love it. Not a fan of the 2nd CD (must be the flip side of the other CD).Published 29 days ago by Alice M.
