Journey Escape Memories


     Around 1981, Journey the rock band released “Escape”.  I remember first hearing Jonathan Cain’s piano riffs from “Don’t Stop Believin'” pouring out of my friend’s tape.  Her name was Suzie Shapiro.  We were all teenagers on a field trip in someone’s car. 
     Above are depicted Neal Schon, the guitar player, and Steve Smith,  the drummer, as they appeared on the Escape LP album sleeve.  LPs were black, round, 10-inch grooved vinyl things with music embedded in all those grooves.  Sunlight could warp them badly enough to make the record skip.  Today they are found in antique shops (!) And old record stores. 
     Journey were my high school heart throbs.
