If you liked the first edition of "At Budokan" you need to get this one too. It's just as great as you'd expect it to be.
If you've never owned a Cheap Trick record before, this is where to start. It captures the band at their very best. Cheap Trick were always better live and these discs proves it.
The booklet contains photos from the concert, the original liner notes by guitarist Rick Nielsen, as well as new, updated liner notes for this particular release, also from Rick.
I love this album and I think you will too. If you're even thinking about purchasing it, don't wait. You will not be disappointed.

Classic Rock magazine in a poll of all-time greatest live albums put this at about number 3, I think.It's funny how an album so revered is probably owned by relatively few fans. I too owned the yellow vinyl version which was heavily weighted with the more commercial poppy songs for the Japanese market it was originally released. The full concert version incorporates their heavier songs and as a result makes it a fantastic album. Crunching metal one minute, Fats Domino covers the next! Cheap Trick are a unique band. There's nobody you can directly compare them to, and if you've never heard this album, it's about time you did!

Wonderful, but possibly dated live rock music. You have to see these guys live they are the business, if you can't this is the solution. Their wall of sound explains the allegations of fudging, but they are the real deal. Exceptional percussion by Carlos, punctuated by possibly the finest rock bass guitarist since ...I've forgotten his name the guy from UFO. And querky non pretencious puzzling rock music. They are a one off, you won't be dissappointed. If you want a cheap trick album, this is the one. But see them live!!!!!
