More Info

"1972 was a busy year for Japans favourite experimental rock band. After several months
spent touring Europe, group leader Takehisa Kosugi (currently music director for the Merce Cunningham dance company in the USA) decided to make good on the bands name and embark on a monumental voyage across Europe and Asia, driving a VW bus from Rotterdam all the way to the Taj Mahal in India! Amazingly, the band got as far as Pakistan before having to fly the rest of the way to the Taj Mahal due to border restrictions. By July of 1972 the band was back home in Japan, and still playing non stop! The three tracks on side A were recorded live during this historic tour, while side B was recorded a year later at the famous Oz Club in Tokyo, during a five day music festival celebrating the venues final days.

Track list - Side A: 1. Live in Aarhus, Denmark, 12 March 1972 2. Live in France, 10 April 1972 3. Live at Cape
Manazuru, Japan 20 July 1972
Side B: 1. Live at the Oz Club, Tokyo, Japan, 30 August 1973" [label info]
