Biography

by William Ruhlmann

During their initial 14 years of existence (1973-1987), Journey altered their musical approach and their personnel extensively while becoming a top touring and recording band. The only constant factor was guitarist Neal Schon (born February 27, 1954), a music prodigy who had been a member of Santana in 1971-1972. The original unit, which was named in a contest on ...

Flash back to the early MTV era, when Journey was one of the first bands to air an entire concert on the network. Here's their 1981 Houston show, recorded when Escape had just hit #1: Who's Cryin' Now; Open Arms; Don't Stop Believin'; Any Way You Want It; Lights the CD includes an extra song ( The Party's Over ) and the DVD adds interviews and more bonus material to journey through!

5.0 out of 5 stars "I wanna hear your big voices Houston..." July 1, 2009
By Al B.
Format:Audio CD
Live in Houston has the same exact live feeling as Captured. The only difference between this and Captured other than the songs is that it doesn't fade out, it just goes straight into the next song like listening to the concert live. Once again like Captured, it has Steve Perry making the audience sing along and clap to certain songs but one song in particular, "Lights", He says "I wanna hear your big voices Houston" and I just, for some strange reason, lose it and just start cracking up, I don't know why. I guess it's just funny to me. The album has all the pre-Escape Journey classics and good amount of the new Escape material. One song in particular didn't make the cut which kind of made me sad and that was "Still they Ride". I wonder why they didn't put it on or even if they performed it live at that show, I guess I'll have to research it more. Live in Houston is a great live album like Captured. I feel that it rivals Captured in many ways but at the same time I feel that the two are even. I always wondered why this concert was such a big deal, but I guess it was the only concert they recorded from that era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Awesome! Out Of This World January 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Journey has always been my very favorite of all the American rock bands. I've traced them right from the beginning because of being a Santana fan. Neil Shon and Greg Rollie started something that was very addictive. When Steve Perry joined the band, that was it. No singer can or could ever replace Steve Perry. Without SP, Journey isn't Journey. This live set just blew me away and the DVD that came with it is out of this world. It's too bad that Journey seems to be at the end of their journey. I highly recommend this set to any Journey fan even if you already have a live Journey CD, this is by far the best of all of them. Don't do what I did though. Order the set that has both the CD and DVD. It is well worth the money.

I've really enjoyed this over and over again! I'm a huge fan of the band when Steve Perry was on vocals! I also thought "Mother, Father" was awesome! Everyone should watch this!

Format:Audio CD
LIVE IN HOUSTON 1981: THE ESCAPE TOUR is a wonderful document of a single concert on Journey's tour in support of their 1981 album ESCAPE, and it's great to have the concert available on CD, as the album and its ensuing tour were Journey's best sellers both in terms of album sales and concert tickets. The previously-recorded live album, CAPTURED, featured Gregg Rolie, whereas this one features Jonathan Cain on keyboards. It has been said that the band's manager, Herbie Herbert, didn't really like Cain, but that's irrelevant, as Cain brought more of a pop feel to the band. This is a CD that anyone who's even remotely interested in Journey should own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Retrospect Journey
Aside from Wheel in the Sky and a couple other songs, this 1981 live disc doesn't do much for me, though Christian metal music is my favorite kind of music now that I'm born again.
