ASIA with Greg Lake (Japan 1983 at the Budokan) - Question

Recommended Posts

Are there any Asia fans who could help me out with this question please...

 

I've just found this video on YouTube, and really like it:

 

 

The sound is really good, and the description says it's from the LaserDisc called "Asia in Asia" with audio remastered by BrunoSamppa, 2014.

 

 

 

Is there a CD of this concert which is good quality?

The closest I can find is "Enso Kai (Live in Tokyo 1983)" (http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=14047), but I've looked at Amazon reviews and the comments imply that the sound quality is dreadful (as if it's been recorded from the back of the hall using a recording device in someone's pocket, lol).

 

 

From what I can gather, the sound mastering of the YouTube video is much better than what's on the CD... :(

I think you answered your question in your last statement.

 

From what I have read regarding this concert is that it was recorded and shown via MTV, sounds like a Westwood One recording and then released as mentioned as a laserdisc and also on VHS and eventually on DVD (it appears the DVD is a boot copy of the laserdisc), HOWEVER the CD release in 2002 was manufactured in MONO for unknown reasons giving it a very crummy quality.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
