Post here if you have any audio/video tapes (eg. Cassette/VHS) or unaltered transfers uncirculated or circulated (your copy may be lower gen/better quality)

Two newly-surfaced shows, though with some snags (Fresno '78 and Philadelphia '81)

Postby Arivaca » Wed Apr 07, 2021 5:21 am

Found some recently-uploaded clips on YouTube from one of the shows at the JFK Stadium in Philadelphia in 1981, so either September 25th or 26th, where Journey opened for the Rolling Stones after George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Only four songs uploaded, but interesting to find a newly-surfaced one. The uploader's brother recorded these.

And as more of an aside, since I don't know where to find the show currently, but another uncirculated show that did not seem to be mentioned on this forum was from the Selland Arena in Fresno on Feb. 26, 1978, where Journey opened for Santana, who I think also had their set recorded and uploaded to the channel. The concert was uploaded by FresnoMediaRestoration, but unfortunately the channel doesn't seem to exist anymore; not sure of the reasons as to why or when exactly it closed, but it did have lots of fantastic-quality recordings from the same venue of various artists from that period, such as Van Halen, Heart, Ted Nugent, and others. The link to the full concert was Register to view links. Their channel was still around in November, at the very least, since the page was archived Register to view links. Not sure who owned the channel to find out why it closed, a shame since it was a huge trove of rare shows.

Whoa, cool find!! Always a great day when a new Journey show surfaces!! Hopefully the other 12 songs he mentions in the description of one of the videos gets posted!

Thats a real shame about the channel that had the Fresno '78 show, that dude really did have some great stuff posted on there!! :(

I have the Selland Arena Fresno show downloaded, I can upload it to MEGA in the next few days.
Infact I archived most of the videos on that channel, if you want any in particular I can upload them.

Nice find on the 1981 show, I have contacted the youtuber to see if he can share the full show

I downloaded the Fresno '78 show as well, just haven't gotten around to splitting it into separate tracks yet. Bummer he never got back to you about working something out to get you a direct copy from his master......he did have the master right?

The Fresno guy did respond but said he didn't want to share the master, only the youtube version unfortunately.

Ah, that was it. Major shame, but I guess lossy YouTube rip is definitely better than nothing!! That's the earliest Perry fronted Journey show we have!!
