Recorded in late May and early June 1979 at Nakano Sun Plaza and Seiken Kan, Tokyo, Japan, it is UK's third album and their first live recording, released in September 1979 in support of the band's US tour supporting Jethro Tull (which Eddie Jobson joined after UK's split) and later headlining European tour.

The album was remastered in 2016 and included as part of the box-set "Ultimate Collector's Edition", along with an extended version containing songs not included in the original album.[3]

BackgroundEdit

According to Eddie Jobson, the album was recorded at the request of Polydor in Tokyo, originally intended for a Japan-only release, but Polydor in the US were also interested in releasing it.[citation needed] John Wetton explained, "The Japanese record companies, they said that live albums are so popular in Japan right now, that any act coming in, it's almost compulsory to do a live album in Japan, just for release in Japan."[4]

The title track and "As Long As You Want Me Here" do not appear on any studio release by the band.
