KISS: Live At Budokan, Japan 1977; Full 100 Min Concert



KISS live at Budokan, Japan recorded April 2nd 1977. This concert also is referred to as the "Lost Alive 2" on various bootlegs. Anyways, this is 100 minutes of great KISS during their "Rock And Roll Over" tour.


The broadcast was filmed by the japanese NHK Company and the soundtrack was recorded by Eddie Kramer for a never released "Alive" album for the japanese market. Later these recordings were used for the "Alive 2" album where they were mixed with the recordings of the August 1977 L.A. Forum shows.

They shot it for Kiss who produced a film of it on Casablanca Records and Filmworks titled "Kiss live in Japan". The NHK Company released it to its television audience in Japan in late 1977 as "The Young Music Show". Unfortunately the print they used was not of the quality of the original print. The original print, after Casablanca used it for "Kiss live in Japan", was sold to HBO in the summer of 1979 for a US broadcast.


This film is taken of that reel and is the best version available of this show. It's slightly different to the "Young Music Show" with different angles mixed in and without the annoying and ugly song titles and japanese subtitles in the screen. Also this print is free of the nasty artifacts and grain in the NHK "Young Music Show" print.
