This is the first of two consecutive nights that NO played at the Kosei Nenkin Hall Tokyo. The second night was filmed and released in part on the Factory/Ikon video, Pumped Full of Drugs, the soundtrack of which is currently being torrented elsewhere on STG. A complete soundboard recording also circulates, and will be torrented later this week. The first night was broadcast on Japanese radio, and this is a complete off-air recording of that. It starts with a Japanese announcer, who spoils the intro to 'In A Lonely Place' and makes an unwelcome reappearance before and during Ceremony; the latter track is, furthermore, faded out, probably because the radio show was running out of time. Apart from that, this is a great recording. As was the band's wont at the time, the setlist of the two nights were radically different, with only 5 tracks common to both shows. 'This Time Of Night' has a really nice bass prelude; the rest you should hear for yourself (or else, go read Sam's notes at - not directly accessible from the NO Gigography).
