Unofficial Japanese Edition CD 'Live' Album of 'Japan' performing it's 'Japan' Tour, 5 March 1979 at the Budokan, Tokyo, Japan.

This CD features a remixed version of the 5/3/79 Budokan recording taken from a radio show, with the interview material removed, plus four bonus tracks from Japanese TV appearances in 1979 and 1980. The sound quality is better than the Budokan/ Big In Japan Bootlegs (Catalogue # KK08 & CO 25160); less harsh. The two tracks from TV in 1979, 'Sometimes I Feel So Low' and 'European Son' are mono recordings. This second version of 'European Son' is shorter than the Budokan version and the synths are arranged differently, with a new melody appearing during the instrumental middle section.

The final two tracks on this Live CD are taken from a different show; March 1980. These are in stereo and probably the best quality on this disc. Barbieri has a strong presence during 'I Second That Emotion', the version starting and ending in a similar fashion to the later 12" extended version. 'Quiet Life' rather oddly starts during the first verse amongst a load of screams, but is otherwise a revelation, again because Richard's synths take centre stage.

The CD is well presented, with photos taken during the Budokan concerts in the booklet and on the back cover. CD is marked with 'Promotional Only - NOT FOR SALE'.

Note: For Completists there are two versions of this CD. Whilst both versions use the same Catalogue # the image on the CD Disc is completely different. This entry is the release with an image of the band printed on the CD.
