Live in Houston 1981: Escape Tour

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
In 1981 Journey were one of the most popular bands in all of rock & roll, after years of having their first four albums relegated to the prog rock bargain bins. Escape was number one on the album charts, and the group was selling out sports arenas nationwide.

Escape was number one on the album charts, and the group was selling out sports arenas nationwide. This disc captures the band at its live performance peak, with Neal Schon's solos bordering -- but never really crossing -- the line of pretentiousness, and Steve Perry's vocals rarely sounding more impassioned. It's annoying (especially to Detroit natives) to hear the lyric "born and raised in South Detroit" changed to "born and raised in Houston," but Perry does a wonderful job keeping the audience engaged and fired up, notably during the dramatic one-two punch of "Open Arms" and "Mother, Father." A nice supplement to Captured, and a snapshot of Journey during their time of world pop chart domination, sounding like a finely tuned unstoppable machine. And until the band reunites with Perry supplying the vocals, it's the next best thing to actually being there.
