A fellow fan at work (Duane Frum, contributor of many wonderful pics on the Shrine) dubbed a copy of Journey’s recent Rockline appearance for me.
And, YES, per Ross, the re-records were done because Wal-Fart insisted on it. Wal-fart originally only wanted 2 original songs, but the band stuck to its guns and we got the WONDERFUL disc of originals.
Ok, people. Now we can officially blame Wal-Fart for the monstrosities that are the re-records.
Well, partially, anyway. I will never, EVER, forgive Journey for what they did to Don’t Stop Believin’ on that second disc.
