Side 4 is actually not from the Budokan in Tokyo, 2 April 1977, like the first three sides but from the L.A. Forum on 27 August 1977 (according to kissbootlegged.com).
This album can only be found with three type of labels: Dragonfly – I would say these are the original versions; Ruthless Rhymes came next and finally the green & red GLC labels.

I am interested in the question when this TV special was first broadcast. So far, I have found the following:
“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. 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 197 as “The Young Music Show”. Unfortunately the print they 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.”
I then hit pay dirt in a (translation) of a Japanese blog:
“Finally KISS has come to Japan, want to see them” The young Wildman didn’t know how to buy the ticket for Rock Concert And even didn’t have way to pay for more than 3,000 yen. So unbelievable But Wildman didn’t go to the very first Tour of KISS. But there was something more to ease These Boys and Girls who Could not go. Good that the NHK broadcast HAS Planned to air on the Live of KISS.
Many People Their Life had changed by the Legend TV program called “The Young Music Show” was broadcast on May 7th 1977 at 15:50 on national television. Broadcast to the home of Wildman which changed the Life of Young Wildman. “
