Live, Import, Remastered, CD Single. This was the first Japan Album I had ever heard and I still think it is possibly their best (second is Exorcising Ghosts). This band who was effectively robbed of success by Duran Duran, Started as a semi punk mostly New Romantic rock band transformed into one of the great unknown bands of the 1980's.
