Midnight Dreamer is a remake of subsets from various programs made in the late seventies on the Teac 3340. It would be considered a “classic rock” set in that all the artists created songs that fit into that genre, but some of these songs were not played as often as other songs by these groups. If you were to think of songs by these groups, chances are, except maybe for “Heart of Glass,” the songs here may not be your first or second pick. As a DJ in the seventies, I always liked the “deep cuts,” songs not on the main playlists. There are those who believe that Journey’s first album was “Infinity” when Steve Perry joined the group, but Journey had three excellent albums before that (this track from 1976). Other highlights: the Atlanta Rhythm Section cut is from their 1976 “Red Tape” album, the Sugarloaf cut is from their 1971 “Spaceship Earth” album, the Robin Trower cut is from the 1975 album, “For Earth Below,” and the Hot Tuna cut is from their 1975 album, “Yellow Fever.”
