Live, Import, Remastered, CD Single. This was the first Japan Album I had ever heard and I still think it is possibly their best (second is Exorcising Ghosts). This band who was effectively robbed of success by Duran Duran, Started as a semi punk mostly New Romantic rock band transformed into one of the great unknown bands of the 1980's.

Billed as 'Japan recorded live' it actually contains a lot of studio material, including three new instrumentals and a re-recorded 'Nightporter'. Masami Tsuchiya plays guitar. In chart terms this was Japan's most successful album; released at a time when interest in the group was at it's peak in the wake of the split.

Some copies came with printed sticker with "Japan Recorded Live VD2513".

UK chart position: 5, Japan (national chart, 11 - a real achievement), No1 on overseas artists chart.
