“We just wrote this song about two weeks ago. Would you like to hear something brand new?”, Steve Perry asks the crowd.

That “something brand new” – Separate Ways – had not yet been recorded and would go on to become a classic among classics. In the area of critical commentary, it’s fascinating to hear the different vocal choices that Perry made for the album version. But hearing what is basically a draft of an epic song is, well, epic.
