Some copies came with a printed sticker stating "Japan Recorded Live VD2513".

[Release notes]:
Billed as 'Japan recorded live' it actually contains some studio material (tracks A1, B4, C1 & D4), including three new instrumentals and a re-recorded 'Nightporter'. All other tracks were recorded live November 1982 at Hammersmith Odeon, London.
In chart terms this was Japan's most successful album; released at a time when interest in the group was at its peak in the wake of the split.

UK chart position: 5, Japan (national chart, 11 - a real achievement), No1 on overseas artists chart.
