John says this is the 9th concert of the debut tour of Asia, and other than having trouble hitting that high note one time in Sole Survivor, he sounded good in this show, as did the rest of the band. the 1st track fades in, just a few seconds missing, all the other songs in here are complete. the source recording had a few interruptions between songs, I have spliced it to make it a seamless recording. I'm not sure which song (s) Howe plays in track 4, but I bet this band would have been called "U.K." if not for Allan Holdsworth, Wetton, Eddie Jobson and Bill Bruford already grabbing that name in 1978. or maybe they just wanted to be as big as Asia (the continent). nice try, didn't quite pan out, but for regurgitated 70's rockers playing in the 80's, Asia was considered one of the "supergroups" of the decade, and this tour had its (heat of the) moments. I thought it was far better than any that followed later from this group. disc 2 can start with track 9 or 12, or 13 if you prefer. Do not sell this recording. Share freely, losslessly and gaplessly.
