Japan: ? – I would guess 1980/1981, probably making TAKRL’s First Time Around (926) the first Foreigner bootleg. The band had toured Japan for the first time in early 1978 and returned as part of the Head Games tour in January of 1980.

  1. I have the Foreigner “First Time Around” LP and love it!
    I spent 20 years looking for that title, until I found it in 2014.
    I have pictures of all my vinyl if you need a picture,
    of that title or anything else.
    I’d be happy to share.

    • Thank you for your offer. I have a collection of TAKRL 900 series images, I just need to get started on that sub label.

      • Not a problem Spinalcrackerbox.
        I have pictures all my vinyl collection, bootlegs.
        99% are of Classic Rock artists.
        If you ever find yourself in nedd, just drop me a line with the Artist/Title, and I will take a look-see.
