The Private Collection
"This is a strange collection of oddball stuff that I found in my studio and just didn't have the heart to throw away. There is nothing great on there but on the other hand it makes for interesting listening if you're an anorak for this kind of thing". Rick is being a tad harsh here - what we really have is over an hour's worth of previously unavailable songs. Some are from tapes that were in poor quality and need a lot of TLC to bring up to releasable standard.

The remainder of this album are a set of instrumentals that Rick played on live on the tour to promote JOURNEY..., making this a sort-of before-and-after bookends for that album. There's some nice stuff here (the aggressive "Warmongers" a standout) but too much of it just doesn't stick in my head, even after repeated listening. Except for the closer-- "And Now A Word From Our Sponsor", which includes the no-doubt-world-famous jingle, "Things Go Better With Coke"!
