Venue/State/Country/etc: the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo
Date: April 2, 1977 (3:00 pm & 7:00 pm)
Format: DVD NTSC Region 0
Filmed during 2 shows (3:00 pm & 7:00 pm) on April 2, 1977 at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo.
"The broadcast was filmed by the japanese NHK Company and the soundtrack was recorded by Eddie Kramer for a never released Alive album for the japanese market. Later these recordings were used for the Alive 2 album where they were mixed with the recordings of the August 1977 L.A. Forum shows.
The NHK Company originally filmed this as a gesture for Kiss in exchange they would be able to produce a Kiss documentary which they finally did in 1977.
They shot it for Kiss who produced a film of it on Casablanca Records and Filmworks titled "Kiss live in Japan". The NHK Company released it to its television audience in Japan in late 1977 as "The Young Music Show". Unfortunately the print thez used was not of the quality of the original print. The original print, after Casablanca used it for "Kiss live in Japan", was sold to HBO in the summer of 1979 for a US broadcast.
This DVD is taken of that reel and is the best version available of this show. It's slightly different to the "Young Music Show" with different angles mixed in and without the annoying and ugly song titles and japanese subtitles in the screen. Also this print is free of the nasty artifacts and grain in the NHK "Young Music Show" print.
The bonus footage are aouttakes of this broadcast, cut from the original release but here preserved for the future… We kept the original broadcast intact but added the outtakes for compeltion giving you the entire performance here in the best possible quality !"
