On the DVD you get 18 tracks of Journey goodness; just try to resist admitting how many you know and singing along. Bonuses on the DVD include an interview with the band about their new album, closing credits for the show, a TV promo for the album and a slideshow. This set was compiled by Steve Perry and while not full of the bells & whistles one gets on some DVDs, its a quality release. The set was filmed for that new fangled video channel: MTV.
It is quite amazing how many of these tracks were hits. Just hearing 'Open Arms', 'Who's Crying Now' and 'Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin' makes you wish you were at this gig or had seen em' on this tour. ('Open Arms' was the 'Hero' (Enrique Iglesias uber-ballad) of its day in knicker dropping power...especially if you could even attempt to sing it.) And that ladies and gentlemen is what you want from a live DVD. If it makes you wish you were at the gig; then its done its job. Like Journey's music this DVD is pure freaking class. Now where did I put that lighter?
As this is probably the last MMM for the year let me wish you and yours a Happy Christmas, Saturnalia, Hanaukah or whatever holiday you wish to call it. I shall see you on the other side of the New Year with a whole new load of musical goodies; including a couple from Canuck nutters The Pariahs.
Stay safe; just raise a few glasses to a 2006 filed with some cracking rock!
