Captured....Journeys 2 disc live album really captures the best of the old classic lineup before Greg Rollie left the group. Starting off with a rocking rendition of "Where Were You" the group easily goes into the the Perry/Rollie duet of "Just The Same Way." both songs showcase Journey's rock sensibility while not dimenishing the dynamics of Perry's voice. Next up is "Line of Fire" from the Departure album...this song sounds much better live then it did on the original studio recording because there is far more raw energy in it. The band then goes into their first chart success "Lights" which easily slips into "Stay Awhile." When performed live it's easy to think these two songs were written togather although they appeared on two different albums. Steve Perry's song about warning a friend to stop taking drugs "Too Late" really shows off his vocal talents. A classic road song "Dixie Highway" has a lot of twists and turns in it that make it a great rocker with the classic line "love is feeling fancy and free..." Greg Rollie's organ is really showcased on this number. Another Perry/Rollie duet originally highlighted on the Infinity album "Feeling That Way" starts off the vocally chellenging "Anytime" another gem from the group's first album with Steve Perry. "Do You Recall" another cut from the Departure album once again sounds much better on this live version. Steve Perry's blues roots and song writing talents are shown on "Walk Like a Lady"...a great blues rocker that shows off Steve's vocals and Neal Schon's guitar. Another great rocker from the Infinity album "La Do Da" leads right into the band's first genuine hit (also written by Perry)... "Lovin Touchin Squeezin." The band ends the show with two Journey cornerstones "Wheel in the Sky" and "Anyway You Want It." The live album does end with one studio cut "The Party's Over (Hopelessly in Love)" another solo attempt by Perry.
This album really does highlight the best of the band's early days with Steve Perry while founding member Greg Rollie was still in the band. It also captures the energy of their explosive live shows. Great band and great album!
