Rush - The Fifth Order of Angels

Time for some early Rush now, more precisely from August 26, 1974 on their first U.S. tour, live at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland.
This one hour concert is not necessary the rarest, I've seen it in some known sharing sites, but sure is one great Rush performance, in their hardest phase and with fine sound.

Journey - Winterland 1973

After receiving a request for early Journey shows I found exactly their first live performance.
Recorded on the last night of 1973 they played at the Winterland Ballroom and the headliner was Santana and his band.
I confess I didn't knew Journey pre-1979 and to hear this was a very nice surprise, completely different from the Steve Perry era (that I also like).
