Live in Tokyo (Weather Report album)

Live in Tokyo is the third release, and first live album by Weather Report. Originally released by CBS/Sony in Japan only, it was not released in the US until a 2014 CD reissue by Wounded Bird Records. Recording took place on January 13, 1972, one of five sold-out concerts played in Japan during that January. I Sing the Body Electric (1972) contained several tracks that were edited for the studio album, but can be heard as they were performed, in their entirety, on this live album.
