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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

First, let me echo some of the complaints about the packaging. Seems like whoever was in charge does not own a car with a CD player in it since the loose-flying CD's do not make the audio recordings easy or safe to carry in your car. I suggest you get your own jewel cases. The packaging is literally a cheap (and insulting) trick on consumers.

Second, given the audio of these concerts has been previously released several different ways, not to mention a lot of the songs being available on "Budokan II," recorded at shows there a year or so later, it seems being able to charge a price higher than $19.99 is the only reason Sony included the double CD "Complete Concert" with absolutely zero difference between this and 20th anniversary 1998 release. Seems to me, the DVD of the concert and the "soundtrack" of it would have made this is an extremely sensible and fairly priced way to celebrate this historic concert, especially with the song selection being the same between the audio of the show and the "Complete Concert." Again, not only cheap and insulting, but greedy as well.

Third, at least the DVD is entertaining, including the new interviews which are given a boost by including a couple of Japanese men who had a hand in setting up the show(though it is unclear what their "job titles" were). I found the Japanese perspective more interesting than the band rehashing the stories many fans have heard before. The filmed concert, though not capturing the crowd and being less than technically thrilling partly due to budget and the fact this was only a tv show, shows a band not only at their creative peak(from which they would fall rapidly less than two years after this show) but having a ton of fun while performing.

FINALLY!!!
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!
