Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Originally released as a 10-track live album in the late 1970s when live albums were all the rage, At Budokan neatly summed up this oddball power-pop/hard rock band with the added ferocity a live show brings. Tracks such as "Hello There," "Surrender," "I Want You to Want Me," and Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame" were infused with a power their studio versions only hint at. Twenty years after the original concert in April 1978, the classic live album has been expanded to include nine additional tracks that make this a must-have for fans of the original. --Rob O'Connor

Product Description

Cheap Trick at Budokan became the biggest album of the band's career-but it only told half the story! The original release featured 10 tracks, but the band actually performed 19 songs that day. Here they all are for the very first time, sonically polished and in sequence. Air guitarists, get ready!

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary Live Performance: Lives up to its billing August 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It is usually a rare feat when a band hits it big as a result of a live recording. Normally a band will release a live recording to sustain the momentum of the band without having to record new material. Such was the case in 1978, when Cheap Trick released "Live at Budokan". Cheap Trick hadn't had any major success in the U.S. up until this point - but it was "Live at Budokan" that put them on the map. "Live at Budokan" is a legendary live album. Back in the late 1970s, live albums were very much the "in thing" on the music scene. Some have even gone as far to say that "Live at Budokan" might be one of the greatest live albums in the history of the music business. Regardless on where "Live at Budokan" stands, one can't deny its impact - it was a huge commercial success for Cheap Trick and put them on the map. This CD isn't the 1978 "Live at Budokan" - this is an expanded set called "Cheap Trick - At Budokan: The Complete Concert". It actually is a take of the original Budokan album and 9 of the 12 tracks from a 1993 "Budokan II" album (the 3 remaining songs not included were actually from 1979 - a follow-up tour. As a result, the 2 CD set "Budokan: The Complete Concert" is a much better product than the 1978 album - this due to the inclusion of the "Budokan II" material and the power of digitial remastering.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Essential May 17, 1999
Format:Audio CD
There are just some albums that everyone must own. "Cheap Trick at Budokan" is one of them. This is one of the 3 best live recordings ever (The Who's "Live at Leeds" and "Frampton Comes Alive" being the others). Now it has become even greater, and all the more essential, in this new version including all the material off of "Budokan II" and re-arrainged in the original set-list from the concert. The sound quality has never been better (even rivaling the gold edition floating around); Columbia/Legacy have built a good reputation in their fine remasters. And this is no exception, especally with the added material. You are THERE, in the crowd. Tom's bass sounds positivly chunky, Bun E.'s drums are crisp & deep, Rick's guitar soars & Robin is truly amazing. From the opening scorch of "Hello There" thru the all-out assult on "Clock Strikes Ten", the crunch of "Auf Vedershen" & "Surrender" and the pop jump of "I Want You to Want Me", it's all here. The defining pop/rock sound that is often imitatded, never been duplicated. This is the sound that all of the 90's wanna-be alt-rockers have been trying to emulate (Billy Corigan & Kurt Cobain freely admitted it). If you're a serious rock fan, you need to own this. If you have the original, time to trade up. It all starts here. Truly timeless kickin' rock & roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Live Rock'n'Roll album ever October 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I always thought "Live at Budokan" seemed incomplete from the time I bought it--the sound, the songs were great, but it just felt like there should have been more. "The Complete Concert" is quite simply the best live rock'n'roll album by any band, even the Ramones. Period. I saw these guys in Boulder last year on two consecutive nights and they hadn't lost a thing from when I saw them at least 18 years before. The performances kicked massive ass and so does this album. If you're a Cheap Trick fan (even if you only occasionally listen to them or already have "Live at Budokan"), you should go out and buy this album, crank it up to wall-shaking, neighbor-bothering levels, and listen to it as it was meant to be heard--in its entirety. "The Complete Concert" is real rock'n'roll from a great band with great songs, not some lame imitation thereof (like so many other 'live' albums).

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You, Japan... And Cheap Trick for This Reissue! February 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Although the original Budokan was a great album, much was missing from it. This edition rectifies the ommissions (excepting the banter before "Clock Strikes 10"- "Here's one I'm sure you all know!") and features more songs from their first 3 albums.
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.
