At Budokan Tokyo, Japan 12/6/1983

Perhaps one the first bootlegs into my collection. Recorded this one off of the MTV special "Asia in Asia" with a boom box stuck in front of the tube. Although a muddied recording, I remember the show quite well. Greg Lake (King Crimson, ELP) had filled in for the departed John Wetton on the bass and vocals. The ending result wasn't too shabby due to the similarities between Wetton and Lake. At that point, Asia was starting to fall apart at the seams.
