      If you like Journey, then it's a must see. This 1981 Journey concert for MTV, after original members departure (Greg Rolie hits not performed), however the band was at the top of their game in 1981 with Steve Perry and his material, mainly. I wasn't much of a Journey fan back in the day, but now I can appreciate how great and cohesive the band was, and by that time, they had distilled their pop/rock sensibility and vision of how hit songs connect - as I'm sure Bill Graham knew. Perry's voice is remarkably flawless and he makes hitting the high notes seem easy. The Journey 'band' is tight; all members, and notably the drummer, Steve Smith 'rocks' throughout this performance! Warning: the contents of this DVD (songs) can linger for days!

      This has got to be the best concert on DVD that you will ever get if you love Journey. The band was in their prime and they hit the notes with power and excitment. Steve Perry really gave a wonderful performance and sung his @#* off. Great drum solo as well. I highly recommend getting this concert on DVD. I have a DVD projector which displays a 10 foot screen and you think you are sitting front row when you watch it. Outstanding buy.

      I adore Steve Perry, I always have since first hearing him on the radio, I was 19 then and I had to see him live in concert, I was desperate to see him live I went to Joe Louis Arena (by myself) in Detroit back in 1981, no regrets, oh just one, I wish I could of met him. The music is awesome!! I am a little disappointed though, the concert footage is a little grainy, but still worth it!!

      I added this concert to my collection of classic rock concerts and I'm very pleased with the quality of the sound and image considering that it was recorded in 1981. It is also excellent to have this performance with the original members of the band.

      Steve Perry's voice is incredible, and I played this DVD in my theater, but this 1981 live concert in Houston was a bit of a disappointment. Hit songs were good, non-hit songs were not.

      I love Journey! I hope they find a way to enhance the sound and video on these older concerts so they are of higher quality, but still a great concert!

      The band sounds great here and this video really captures them at their best, which is their live performances.
