Jay Graydon All Stars "Live in Japan 1994.1.19" Super High Material CD with bonus DVD
We could have DVD release of the Jay Graydon All Stars' 1994 live performance in Japan with 2 bonus CDs with the live audio recordings deleting MC as "Airplay For The Planet Live In Japan 1994.1.19" in December 2007. This was the must-have DVD for all of AOR/Westcoast music lovers, even though the video of the performance was shot as the private recorded data for the band, using a single camera and not intended to be published those days.And now again , The Super High Material CDs 2008 remastered version has just been released on 2 discs. If the difference between the first edition and the re-released version were only the materials of the disc and not omitting MC during the live performance, it is easy to skip. However, the re-released version is now on sale with a bonus DVD.... The bonus DVD includes Jay Graydon All Stars 1996 live videos. 6 tracks were taken on February 13, 1996 at Gino, Stockholm Sweden. And 2 tracks with live rehearsal taken on February 2, 1996 at Theater Drama City, Osaka Japan. It cannot help being criticized that the quality of the video are much worse than 1994's. Sound is also not so good regarding Swedish one. Therefore, this version should not be recommended to everyone but Jay's mania must express sincere gratitude to share the valuable memories by publishing this video. As you may know, 1996 tour members includes the voice of Airplay, Tommy Funderburk and Ned Doheny. Further, on February 13, two surprising guest players were captured by this video. These guys are Bill Champlin and Jason Scheff! On "She Just Can't Make Up Her Mind ", Bill appeared from behind and started to sing. Jason also appeared on stage and stayed in the background playing bass for a couple of songs.
