    Steve Perry’s album Traces is very mellow compared to his journey days. He still has that voice though you remember. I got the Barnes and noble lp. Fidelity is quite decent.

    Glad to hear.

    Saw him in concert in the 90's.

    Great show.

    The title of this thread got me excited because I'll probably be dead in 25 years. ;) Seriously, I've NEVER liked his singing.

    I have to give Steve Perry's Traces CD 5/5 Dancing Bananas.

    :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:

    We listened to it at the KC area audio fest today, on an upper HiFi system. The amp was a McIntosh MC-2205, MAC pre, the source being a Helios player.

    You have to watch this to appreciate the speakers. They are the best I've heard to date:



    About 5 people really liked this CD. At least one ordered it from Amazon immediately.

    It doesn't really sound like Journey, other than Steve's voice, which is remarkably preserved. You can hear a little age to it, but not much. Amazing for a 69 year old dude.

    It's like he saved it for us until now. The music is pop rockish, with several tracks that seriously rock. It can't really compare it to anything else (off the top of my head).

    It seems fresh to me.

    It doesn't sound like Journey.

    This is one of the tracks that I claim as a "serious" rocker. It sounds great, played loud on the Dunlavy towers.

    Played it for my lady without telling her who it was, she asked "Journey?", well it sure sounds like Journey to the both of us I guess.
