Killer sounding bootleg from 79 in Chicago. Kohoutek.
WOW! SO unlike the Journey most fans know!!
THIS is the SS that made me go WHAAAT was that
back in the day. So unlike a ROCK drummer...
His feel and dynamics are amazing...YES, I like the
old SS better (not the SS at his age today, but the
SS from the 90's compared to the 70's and early
80's). Glad he evolved to what his calling
was, but he truly had it all--fire, passion, technique,
taste, composition, sound (oh how I love those fat
toms back then).
Great find Lang...that first song was the antithesis of
"Who's Cryin Now"...the end of an era with Rollie to
Cain. Old Journey still braking out before the hit machine
took over with Cain and Perry's control over the band...
before the solo records that caused so much riff...before
the 'Elvis left the building' dynamics.
