ASIA - High Voltage Live (2014)

ASIA - High Voltage Live (2014) full

The remaining release by Frontiers Record this month is "High Voltage Live" by legends ASIA, recorded on the 24th July 2010 at the inaugural High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London, capturing the band in the original line-up (featuring Steve Howe on guitar), performing classic material from the '80s plus songs from the first two albums of its reunion, 'Phoenix' and 'Omega'. 

Asia has eighteen live records plus several 'best of...' compilations in their discography. So why another one? I can't really answer this question. Well, perhaps some of the songs never were released performed live before.
The tracklist is very good, and you have the original line-up, both really attractive selling points.
What is the negative side of this release? For me it is the sound of the recording. It's bloodless and powerless. 
Also the mix doesn't seem to be the best one. The guitar is too far in the back (it was especially Howe's guitar which made the old hits really rocking anthems) and John Wetton's vocals are far too dominant. 
ASIA is a legend, and this record does not make justice to their quality. Who at Frontiers decided the release of this?
Judge by yourself.
