Additional comments

This is taken from the professional CD-R release called "Nippon Seinenkan 1983". The first two discs have very good sound quality. Nice guest performance of Australian saxophone player Paul Williamson! Some funny moments when Mark Knopfler is "talking" to the audience in Japan. There is also a fan in the audience who keeps on shouting for Skateaway. Mark gets really annoyed by this and just when he is announcing Going home, this person shouts again very loud. Mark replied: "Where are you? Skateaway... Skateaway... Come on man, do us a favour: skate away!" Complete concert. The third and fourth disc feature the second concert in Tokyo from the day after and was (to my knowledge) not circulating before. Good sound aswell and also featuring guest player Paul Williamson. Unfortunately, Telegraph road is cut after almost seven minutes and the last two tracks Solid rock and Going home are missing.
