First off, I have all three of these albums. The self-titled first disc
and a BGO remaster of the two follow ups. I do not own and have not
heard the sound quality of this new 3CD Slipcase set. I travelled to
Buffalo NY to see the band play live. The boys and I made the trip to
the show. Our hair was long and it was long ago, almost 40 years ago...
The original pressing of the debut is weak, of course, and I have been
waiting for the remaster but "is this it?" This series from Sony Legacy
are notorious for offering minimal technical information, if any at all.
The BGO 2Fer has better sound than the ordinary early imprints of "Next"
and "Look into the Future"....Right now the price from a seller here in
Ontario is too high for my pleasure. I'll wait to see if this set drops
as so many products do at the "Marketplace".... If I get a good deal, I
will return with an honest evaluation of the sonic quality. Patience.....
UPDATE....finally got a decent price a while back and as far as the sound,
well....nothing extraordinary. It will do for the price, I paid less than $5 per
disc so if you want the early Journey...Add to Cart!
