A 1981 Journey concert in Houston that was originally broadcast by the fledgling MTV is headed to CD and DVD as "Live in Houston 1981 -- Escape Tour." Due Nov. 15 via Columbia/Legacy, the project was produced by former Journey frontman Steve Perry, who exited the veteran rock act for good in 1998.

Although five of the songs from the show have been previously released, the CD portion sports never-before-available renditions of tracks like "Wheel in the Sky," "Lights," "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'," "Mother, Father," "Line of Fire," and "Escape," as well as "The Party's Over (Hopelessly in Love)," which was not filmed and as such does not appear on the DVD.

The DVD is rounded out by interviews with band members and a rare photo slide show.

Here is the track list for "Live in Houston 1981":

"Escape"
"Line of Fire"
"Lights"
"Stay Awhile"
"Open Arms"
"Mother, Father"
Jonathan Cain solo
"Who's Cryin' Now"
