After making two great studio albums The Runaways give them fans what they wanted for: a live recording. I like this live album so much because it is simpel and doesn't have anything strange: intros, outros, interludes, guitar solos, or anything absolutely nonesense. They just play and sing songs: that's what the audiences wishes for. There's three songs from their second album, Queens of Noise ("Queens of Noise", "California Paradise", "Neon Angels on the Road to Ruin"), four from their debut album ("Rock-n-Roll", "You Drive Me Wild", "Cherry Bomb", "American Nights"), and five previously unreleased songs ("All Right You Guys", "Wild Thing", "Gettin' Hot", "I Wanna Be Where the Boys Are", "C'mon"). I think there should have been at least one more track from "Queens of Noise", maybe "Midnight Music" or "Heartbeat" would have been good. I think the previously unreleased songs are good in this live concert, especially "Gettin' Hot" and "I Wanna Be Where the Boys Are". The sound quality is very good and feels like you actually would be there listening to them. I like very much when the audience sings with them "Rock-n-Roll" in the beginning of the song: "It's Alright!". Cherie Currie never loses her touch with the audience.

Released just after the messy cat-fights and in-band bitching, resulting in the departure of Cherie Currie and Jackie Fox.
This album revealed a maturity and depth of both songwriting and ability that had not been present before.
It was becoming obvious that both Lita and Joan were pulling in different musical directions, but for now this was a solid effort that hinted of greater things to come.
Sadly, this was not to be. Instead, we got 'And now...The Runaways'- but that's another story.

Im sorry but I have heard all the studio albums and ( you have to admit) only one country, Japan. suprise!! let this band into their hearts. America and Europe looked on and took notes, there were even some approving nods here and there but units didnt shift and a novelty ` all girl teen group ` tag stuck. this live album is a good ,well produced best of.yes they can play ( very well ) and the real problem was a huge lack of decent songs. at least when you play live you have the right to improvise.also every member is on the front sleeve not just Miss Currie.

On the Road... 21 Feb 2005
By Reijo Piippula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After making two enourmous studio albums The Runaways give them fans what they wanted for: a live recording.

They just play and sing songs: that's what the audiences wishes for.

For Sandy West - this album rocks! 23 Oct 2006
By R. Blazak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My friend in the 70s, David Coston, had this album on Japanese import and I borrowed it all the time. It sounded so much bigger than the studio albums. I'm finally getting my own copy today, in loving memory of Sandy West, one of the great all-time rock drummers!

In honor of Sandy West and because The Runaways rock! 26 Oct 2006
By C. J. Bryant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My review is in honor of Sandy West the drummer for The Runaways who passed away on October 21, 2006. I also have been a fan of The Runaways since they began. I grew up with them - have all their albums and still listen to their music. For me, it is the kind of music I can put on and instantly feel energized and alive. I love Queen's of Noise, California, American Nights and of course, Cherry Bomb from this cd.

An excellent live album 6 Aug 2012
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had already purchased both "The Runaways" (1976) and "Queens of Noise" (1977), both of which are excellent studio albums, but I wasn't expecting "Live in Japan" to be as good as it is. I was a bit disappointed by the setlist the first time I saw it (no "Is It Day or Night?", "I Love Playin' with Fire", "Heartbeat", or "Johnny Guitar"), but as hard as I might try I can't second-guess their picks for the concert/album, and I certainly can't second-guess their performance. "Gettin' Hot" and "I Wanna Be Where the Boys Are" are a couple of real gems that can't be found on the (superb) studio albums, and their cover of "Wild Thing" is classic. I never cease to be amazed by the sound The Runaways could generate, and (even though I absolutely adore "Queens of Noise") I can't help but declare this even better sounding. The rhythm section of Joan, Jackie, and Sandy are rock solid (as always), but it is Lita who really plays out of her mind on this album: I think she achieves a better balance of speed, power, and precision on this album than either of the first two studio albums, which is really saying something considering where she set the bar on those albums. The vocals are great too, with both Cherie and Joan contributing the sharp yet clever lyrics that The Runaways are famous for, but I still can't get over how good the instrumentation is on this album. With no overdubs or multiple takes to bail them out, the band really shines in the moment, in the live performance that means so much to the whole rock genre. I know this is a very bold claim, but it is perhaps the best combination of riffs and solos I've ever heard, which is really saying something considering I have Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, and Mick Taylor in my vinyl collection. They are all (obviously) amazing guitarists, but The Runaways (I dare say) are more consistent in their guitar performances. Perhaps because they don't "mess around" with horns, acoustic guitars, effects, or even keyboards (on this album), the focus is on the good stuff: lead and rhythm electric guitars, electric bass, and drums. Joan has the ability to create Keith-like riffs with practically the same quality and regularity, and Lita goes places where perhaps only Eddie Van Halen and Angus Young had ever gone before. All in all, it is a wonderful album, and even as a big Runaways fan going into the purchase, I was absolutely amazed by the quality.

The Runaways; Live in Japan 12 Jun 2011
By Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you love great rock 'n' roll and also are a fan of The Runaways, you'll really love this album. I think this is the very best of their recordings. They really were their best for this tour and it shows in the music. Live in Japan
