Budokan 1982 Nen 12 Gatsu 8 Ka Live is the title of a new Japan live-album which will be released in August.
The English translation of the description on CDJapan is as follows:

A live album that recorded the Budokan performance on December 8, 1982 from Japan's final tour with Masami Tsuchiya of Ippudo as a support member. David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto announced in addition to "Burning Bridges", "Foreigners", "European Sun", "Life in Tokyo" not recorded in the live album "Oil on Canvas" from the tour. Ryuichi Sakamoto and Akiko Yano participated in the single "Bamboo Music", and Yukihiro Takahashi participated in lead vocals in the following "Taking Islands in Africa". It's a moving content for a Japanese fan who ends the duet with David Sylvian and Akiko Yano in "Good Night".

You're welcome. We're all trying to keep this forum a bit lively aren't we. :wink:

Anyway, I hope this is a legit release, so the bandmembers and families will see some benefit.

Yeah, I think we all hope that this places stays awake for as long as possible. Awhile ago I was running an unofficial campaign to sort of spread the word a bit more. Perhaps I should get back at it. It took me a year and a half to be lucky enough to find this place.

What I really want is all those guests that are supposedly always lurking here to join and start yapping. Sure, there are a few bots in the mix, but there has to be a good amount of people as well. :mrgreen:

Well, most of the folks who visited forums through the years have traded them for Facebook-sites. In the case of Japan etc. JBK Jansen Barbieri Karn is one of them (https://www.facebook.com/groups/385768124842049/). They also posted on the Mick Karn-forum to get some attention: https://mickkarn.proboards.com/
Somehow it works and I get some information from that facebook-site, but I'll never become a FB-member.

I'll never become a member either. I find it sad how Facebook has absolutely decimated forums and blogs. You would think that the scandals about leaking user information would get people off of the site, but I guess its so addictive that its hard to stop frequenting them.

Seems there's been quite a kerfuffle over this. Steve Jansen was asked on Twitter about whether it's an official release (or at least one that he and other band members could benefit from) and he said it was an illegal release with no permission from rights owners.

I'd already ordered it before this, but amazon have said that not likely to arrive until September-October (and even then I guess that's unlikely) and has been withdrawn from sale.

Do hope this can be sorted out as would be good to hear a high quality version of this - always been intrigued about the re-arranged versions of older songs especially.

Thanks for this background information. I'm not surprised by it. Furthermore I don't know if there's a difference between licensing live-versions and original studio-versions. It seems in general there are a lot of live-albums released officially without the approvement of the musicians.
Well, if I have more information on my order from CDJapan I'll let you know.

Looks like this going to be released outside Japan by Floating World:

Recently I bought a live recording from Camel from this label. Sound was oké.
