Is the title satire? Or was there a phase in Japanese bootlegging around this time where the rudest ones imaginable were picked (see the Bay City Rollers bootlegs recently presented)?

It seems that the green version is the first issue (the red version can be picked up for cheap these days). All came with blank white labels.

Matrix: H E 9314 A / B

Japan: 1978

Side A: Intro: Over The Rainbow / Kill The King / Long Live Rock’n’Roll/ Still I’m Sad / Beethoven’s Ninth / Dance With The Devil (*)

Side B: Do You Close Your Eyes / Stargazer (**) / The Man In Black (*)

 

The majority of this album comes from the German Rockpalast TV show recorded live at Munich, Germany’s Olymbiahalle on 20 October 1977. This was officially released in 2006. ‘Stargazer’ is an audience recording from Tokyo’s Budokan on 06 December 1976. The other two tracks (**) are Cozy Powell solo tracks.
