Boston: 1979-04-19 Tokyo, Japan (FLAC_AUD_2 CD)

Here is an excellent sounding Boston show I got about two years ago of their second night in Tokyo during the 1979 Don't Look Back tour.  I have the previous night's show too, but this one sounds so much better that I'm uploading it.  If anyone's interested in the first night's show from Tokyo, just leave a reply and I'll upload that show too when I see the desire for it.  It is also a great recording.  But this one is definitely the better of the two.

I don't know how the Japanese people do it?  Maybe they've just always had better equipment (recorders, tapes, etc).  But they know how to capture their shows in high quality recordings that make you feel like you're at the show.  And the Japanese crowds are so much more polite and quiet while the bands play their music.  They wait until the transitions between songs to yell and cheer.  You got to love that!

Boston actually played three shows in Tokyo on this 1979 tour.  The first one (I already mentioned) was 1979-04-18, or the night before.  I've heard the third show exists but I don't have it (yet).  So they had at least one more night in Budokan Hall and that was the next night on 1979-04-20.  And I believe that wrapped up their 1979 tour in  Japan and they moved on to their US leg of the tour and hit the American cities across the country.

I hope you enjoy the concert...
