I think it is appropriate to discuss the liner notes early on. Although there are no lyrics included, the liner notes go into amazing detail of the story of Cheap Trick's performance at the Budokan. For such a legendary live recording, the liner notes do an outstanding job at telling the story.Read more ›
Like on the original, "Hello There" opens the set (and adds dialogue between members just as they're getting ready to rock!) and follows the playful "Come On, Come On". "Elo Kiddies" (a sassy shuffle) and the more complex "Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace" (both of these from their debut) are added. The menacing "Big Eyes" (featuring Robin Zander going up and down on the octaves and Bun E Carlos starting it off on drums) and the adventurous "Look Out" are back, albiet in reverse order! Then you have the moody "Downed", the desperate "Can't Hold On", and the rockin' "Oh Caroline" (from In Color) all added to this set.
From the original, Robin introduces "Surrender" (which pays homage to Kiss on the last verse) as "the 1st song on our [then] NEW album!" and Rick Nielsen adds a flamboyant coda not found on the studio version! "Auf Wiedersehen" (also from Heaven Tonight and featured here for the 1st time) is pure bone-crunching rock.
On "Need Your Love", Robin's vocals range from desperate pleas to bitter sneers and Rick jams away on guitar not dissimilar to Marc Bolan, Pete Townshend, and Brian May. "High Roller" is another rocker which allows Rick to jam followed by the more laid back "Southern Girls". "I Want You to Want Me" blows away the original version on In Color.Read more ›
