"Sick Man Of Europe" - Cheap Trick - from "The Latest" cd


Combining a love for British guitar pop songcraft with crunching power chords and a flair for the absurd, Cheap Trick provided the necessary links between '60s pop, heavy metal, and punk. Led by guitarist Rick Nielsen, the band's early albums were filled with highly melodic, well-written songs that drew equally from the crafted pop of the Beatles, the sonic assault of the Who, and the ...

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'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 seems to lose that "live" look to it. But that's my personal 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...

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 A VERY CHEAP TRICK INDEED November 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for a new hobby, then by all means buy this package. Then you can spend the rest of your days trying to procure 4 scratch-free discs. I have NEVER seen such a poorly packaged product.
The discs are just jammed/crammed(and stuck!) into die-cut slots in the package-no mount, no poly sleeve, no paper sleeve-NOTHIN'! As such, all 4 discs are terribly scratched with the one looking like it was wire-brushed.
I can't believe that a label like Legacy which has such a great record of releasing quality(some of the best) product would issue something so inferior. Well, off to the Post Office to send this stinker back.
This should make a very dissapointing Christmas gift for many a Cheap Trick fan. Shame on you Legacy. It was supposed to Cheap Trick, not just cheap.

2.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars Cheap Trick/0 stars packaging!! November 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Love Cheap Trick but the record company needs to recall this set!! All discs are scratched right out of the box. I'll try and return it and get another but I sent an email to Legacy Recordings to tell them this needs to be recalled and repackaged. Cheap trick is a great band and deserves better than this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy DVD, CDS are horrible! November 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Basically, all you get is three CDS with the same songs over and over again. If you want it buy they Budokan original and Complete Concert. Frankly, I can't tell a difference in the clarity and sound improvement what so ever! The DVD rocks, lets face it no matter how are they try, Sony can't screw up Cheap Trick in their zone.

Buyers beware: Just get DVD, CD is just eh

I totallly agree with the first reviewer. The CDs, the DVD and the book are nice, but the way the discs are stored - they're simply placed in tight cardboard pockets in the packaging - reeks. Legacy really should have spent the extra money to provide slimline jewel cases to protect the discs inside the box. The whole industry, it seems, now has Anti-Jewel Case Fever, claiming they want to go green and be environmentally friendly. I think it's a ploy to allow discs to become easily scratched and damaged, so people will buy multiple copies to replace the damaged ones.

Anyway, I love Cheap Trick. And producer Jack Douglas is a kind soul. I just wish that this package had better packaging. Approach with extreme caution (and steady hands)

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!
