Members of Yellow Magic Orhestra (YMO)

YMO joined the band near the end of the set on various songs.

earlier seeder's comment:
This is one of the last shows Japan ever played! Members of Yellow Magic
Orhestra (YMO) join the band near the end of the set on various songs. The
recording was originally captured from its broadcast on Ryuichi Sakamoto's
"Sound Street" radio. As with nearly all Sylvian related boots before 2001,
lineage is unknown. The tracks on tape are superior but the tape was missing
the three tracks that had to be added in from vinyl. Taking Islands in Africa
seems to have been a little warped on the LP it was taken from, the other two tracks blend in surprisingly well.

wow, thank you for posting this. Japan is very hard to find bootleg wise. If you have any other shows by them please post them if possible, I'd love to hear them. The only one I have is a FLAC copy of Hammersmith Odeon 1981, will hunt down the link I found it at if you're looking for it.
