Editorial Reviews

A major milestone for Cheap Trick, back 30 years ago! Yes it was Budokan! This is 2008 and lets celebrate the 30th anniversary with this collector's edition of three CDs, DVD and book. For the first time, the DVD premieres the previously unseen historic 1978 Tokyo concert, aired only once on Japanese TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful With the Packaging November 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In the late 70's I always wondered if there was video available of the Cheap Trick At Budokan concerts. So, for me, there was no decision at all when this 30th Anniversary set was released that I was going to buy it. I already owned the Complete Concert on CD, but this is Cheap Trick at their best, so a back up set is no big deal. It is good to see and hear alternate versions of the songs we have known for so long.

As to the packaging, THANKS to all the prior reviewers for the warning. I used extra care when removing the discs and no scratches resulted. I just pushed down on the sleeves a little to give the discs some wiggle room and they just rolled out with only a little effort.

No real Cheap Trick Fan will want to be without this set. It is all that I expected and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY!!! THANK YOU! November 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
WOW! If you had told me when I was 9 years old in early 1979 while I was lying on my bed listening to this album(on the yellow vinyl import, thank you LOL)that 30 years later, I would be lying on my bed as a 39 year old WATCHING the concert on a wide screen high-def TV with a whole concert from the other night on CD to boot.....INCREDIBLE. It's amazing when I think about it. Between the bootlegs, internet, on demand TV...we are SOOOO spoiled these days....it's almost like another universe when I think back to my childhood in the 70s and how amazing it is that we have access to this stuff.
Anyway, the packaging does damage the discs, unfortunately, but I just put them in some cd slipcases and keep them in the box that way. It's a drag, but the content is so great, it's like Paul Stanley once said..."it's like winning the lottery, being set for life, and complaining about paying the taxes" LOL
My only gripe is that the video of the 1978 show flips back and forth, for no apparent reason, from video to film. The original broadcast was shot on video, and they put a film process on it to make it look like a movie....which I'm not a fan of...it seems to lose that "live" look to it. But that's my personal preference...it doesn't hamper the experience, but I don't know why it's in video for a few seconds usually at the start of a song, then switches over to film. Whatever. They also cut off the whole beginning of the TV special where they show the stage being set up, soundcheck clips, etc. If you have the boot of this, maybe keep it just for those snipets. The restored picture and sound are stunning...really. Kudos to Jack Douglas for whatever magic he weaved on the audio...

2.0 out of 5 stars All Four Disc's Are Badly Scratched! November 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
What a disappointment the packaging of this product is, it's so bad it actually takes away from the joy of the actual product itself. Brand New right out of the box and every disc was scratched and unfortunatly the main DVD concert was in the worst shape of all. I plan on returning this back to the store where I bought it but as another reviewer said it might be impossible to find a clean copy anywhere. 'Unbelievable!! and by the way, Cheap Trick is one of my all time favorite bands, this review is not against the band just the way the product was packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 for the material/0 for the packaging November 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This set has appalling packaging that damages the discs.

The 3 cds and dvd are simply slammed into 4 tight cardboard "notches" in a fold out pack with zero cushioning or protection. Each disc has a straight scratch that runs through the lower third of the respective discs. Its also impossible to remove the discs without pulling them slightly below the edge and thereby risking fingerprints.

On top of that, the dvd in my set was scuffed to hell and looks like a badly used dvd. One of the discs looks almost perfect - except for that ugly single scratch which corresponds to the top of the "notch".

Why the hell were Legacy too cheap to simply put the discs on pop-it hubs like almost every other box set I've seen has? Unbelievable.

I'll be returning this, but have a sinking feeling that finding a "clean" set will be impossible. I'm also going to lodge a complaint at Legacy. The material and the rest of the packaging is stellar - but the way they stored the discs in this set is garbage.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Hard Earned Cash On This Garbage! November 23, 2008
By Dave A.
Format:Audio CD
Just like all the othere here I love Cheap trick and have bought Budokan many time over the years. I'm gonna focus on the packaging, not the music which we all know is fantastic anyways. I bought this the day it was released so I wasn't fortunate enough to heed the warnings of others because there were no reviews of it yet. I found it at Best Buy for $29.99 so I snatched myself a copy because I thought that was pretty reasonable. I couldn't wait to get home and open it up to see what the inside looked like.You can imagine my disgust when I saw how the discs were housed, no protection from being scratched whatsoever. I was so disappointed and pissed off to find every single disc was scratched,and as others have pointed out the dvd was the worst.To make a long story short I returned it to Best Buy for my money back or another copy. Well, when I went back to the counter with my replacement copy the clerk opened it for me to inspect it for scratches(even though I already knew it would have them) and lo and behold this copies discs weren't even in the slots- they had come completely loose and were scratched beyond belief! I eventually had to get store credit because I said I don't want another one as I know they'll all be damaged anyways. What could've been an awesome release got botched by Sony. I like others only cared about the dvd, but I'm sure down the road it'll get it's own release just like the Judas Priest live '82 dvd that was exclusive to the box set, but a year later it's released on it's own. I can wait as long as it takes because I won't be buying this piece of crap again!

I was very excited for this new box set, but only until I saw the fine details. The DVD is NOT the complete show, which has been widely bootlegged for years now (and is actually HIGHLY amusing with the Japanese commericals left intact). Now, I *LOVE* Cheap Trick to death, and always will, BUT I... Read more

I discovered a lost gem -Aphrodites Child "666" anyone else know this band?
One of my favorite albums, It's great through the headphones. Vangeles got his start, before composing movie scores, in this band. Check out U-Tube, They got some pretty good videos of them!
