At Budokan: 30th Anniversary Collectors Edition (DVD)
Strangely enough, Cheap Trick's big breakthrough, 1979's AT BUDOKAN, was almost never released stateside. The band had become superstars in Japan on the strength of their first three studio albums, and when they toured the country in '78, several their shows were taped for a Japan-only live release. When the resulting album began racking up impressive sales in the U.S. as an expensive import, Epic wisely released it domestically, where it peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts and spawned the top ten hit single "I Want You To Want Me." One of the reasons for the album's success is that it resembles the raw, direct approach of their self-titled debut, rather than their other two more produced releases. Add the energy of a concert setting, and you have one of the greatest live rock albums ever. If you were to own only a single Cheap Trick release, AT BUDOKAN would be the one (the entire AT BUDOKAN was merged with BUDOKAN II for 1998's 2-CD set CHEAP TRICK AT BUDOKAN: THE COMPLETE CONCERT). This Cheap Trick at Budokan album catapulted the Rockford, Illinois quartet to international superstardom. This 30th anniversary DVD/3 CD box set includes a DVD premiering the previously unseen historic 1978 Japan concert aired only once on Japanese TV, plus new interview with the band and 2 songs taped at a 2008 Budokan show. Two of the CDs feature the complete concert, newly remastered. The 3rd CD includes the audio counterpart to the DVD plus 4 bonus songs not included in the original film. Also included is a 40 page, full color, perfect bound book. Recorded live in April 1978. All tracks have been digitally remastered.
