I'm not certain where this came from, most likely a now defunct blog as I've not seen it torrented on any other site. Don't be deterred by the relatively small file size; this is better than both the Genesis In Concert 1976 and Kate Bush Hammersmith 1979 LaserDisc transfers recently posted here.

From Wikipedia ;
Ex-King Crimson and ELP front man Greg Lake replaced Wetton for the highly publicised "Asia in Asia" concert at the Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo, Japan on 6 December 1983, which was the first concert broadcast over satellite to MTV in the U.S. and later made into a home video. Some of the songs had to be played in a lower key to suit Lake's voice and he read most of the lyrics from a teleprompter. The Japanese dates were successful financially but not musically.

Thanx so much. Quite interesting how there's always been a "revolving-door" of line ups intersecting between King Crinmson, ELP, Yes and Asia
