Comment:

This is really a beautiful bootleg from Tokyo 11th of May 1985. It has amazing sound quality from the soundboard and it is taken from a Japanese laserdisc. The concert itself is unfortunately not complete. It misses Dragon Attack after It's A Hard Life and the Guitar Solo after Love Of My Life. There is another bootleg of this concert called ''Rock In Japan'' which includes Dragon Attack, but the whole bootleg has slight worse sound. Wonderful concert with a lovely version of It's A Hard Life. These are the original pressed silvers from a bootleg label called ''RMU''. The tracks marked with * are bonus tracks. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

This version comes from a FM radio broadcast and released from a bootleg label called ''Work''. It is NOT from the officially Japanese Video/DVD release. This bootleg was the first CD edition of this concert, not from LP. It has a very rare and nice cover design. This recording includes Dragon Attack, which is not included on the video. Still not a complete recording as it misses Machines (Intro), Brian's Guitar Solo and some speeches between a few songs. The whole recording has a totally different soundmix than the video and sounds in my opinion much better now. Spike Edney is much lower in the mix and it sounds more natural all the way. It has an amazing sound quality and highly enjoyable. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

Incomplete audience recording from the famous Tokyo 1985 concert. The official Japanese release misses (besides Dragon Attack) the Guitar Solo and the ending of Brighton Rock, but they are included on this audience recording and are heard for the first time. The taper probably used a 90 minute tape, so it's missing the last few songs. The sound quality is top class. It sounds a bit distant, but with such clarity and highly enjoyable. The bootleg label of this version is unknown and was released on two CDRs. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
