Cheap Trick Live At Budokan: 30th Anniversary Edition

“I Want YOU to Want… ME!”
5.1 Surround sound DVD plus 3CD package of newly mixed and mastered audio tracks.
This release features the original Japanese concert which aired there, but not in the U.S. Additional '08 interviews with band members and other figures involved in this historic concert are featured in the documentary Looking Back.

Cheap Trick: Rick Nielsen (guitar), Robin Zander (vocals and guitar), Bun E. Carlos (drums), and Tom Petersson (bass). Circa 1978-79 straight outta Rockford, Illinois.

This anniversary release also boasts 1978's “Come On, Come On” with the addition of '08 Budokan recordings “Voices” and “If You Want My Love." On these four discs: One is audio from the DVD in its full 19-song length, Two is the DVD, and three and four represent the 2008 remaster of the 20th anniversary (1998) double-CD Live at Budokan.
And for vinyl junkies:

BUDOKAN!: 30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION, that brings the sight and sound together for the first time. The set will arrive in stores November 11th through Epic/Legacy, a division of SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. Separately on October 28th, a new 12-inch vinyl LP of the Live at Budokan original 10-song album will be issued on 180 gram audiophile pressing.

“The discovery of the actual Japanese TV show footage was a real find and putting the recordings back together with the band’s original production team of Jack Douglas and Jay Messina was a natural,” said Dickinson. “Actually seeing this iconic rock and roll moment in time adds a real thrill factor. The 5.1 option even puts the listener virtually in the audience”. - Producer Bruce Dickinson

Imports were not commonplace and In February 1979, the Budokan imports became collectors items when the album was officially released on Epic Records in America. Customers looking for the live (Budokan) version of “Surrender” bought enough copies of Heaven Tonight to earn the album RIAA gold in January 1979. Budokan was released in February and certified gold in a just four weeks- and platinum two months later.

The LP is ranked on Rolling Stone’s list of “500 Greatest Albums Of All Time,” and “Surrender” appears on the magazine’s “500 Greatest Singles Of All Time” list.
