CD Reviews

A classic, but you can now do better
Tim Brough | Springfield, PA United States | 02/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember when this came out, I'd already had a radio only promo that I'd found in a store that always managed to get records like that. I was blown away by the ferocity of it, with power beyond anything the studio albums had come up with. "Cheap Trick At Budokan" was rushed into the stores after the radio only versions had become big items not only on the request lines of stations playing them, but on the bootleg market as well. This is a must have document of the late seventies, but if you aren't so nostalgic that you absolutley must own the CD as you originally heard it in 1979, then skip this and get the "Complete Budokan" reissue, which takes these ten tracks, those from the (gratefully) out of print "Budokan II", puts them back into thier original concert playing sequence and boasts remastered sound."
The Complete Concert Is So Worth The Extra Money

"This album is of course a classic just as it was originally released, but the extra songs on the complete conert cd are almost all great, and 3 of them (southern girls, elo kiddies, and auf wiedersehen) are must-have amazing. shell out the xtra 6 bucks or so and get the 2CD set is my strong recommendation for anyone wanting to hear what's probably the best live rock album ever."

"Buy the time Cheap Trick recorded at Budokan, they were more or less superstars over in Japan. While their first three albums didn't burn up the charts in the U.S., in Japan they were hits, that went gold. Live at Budokan was originally going to be released in Japan only, but when a couple of DJ's got a hold of imports, and started playing I Want You to Want Me, people started to become interested in Cheap Trick at Budokan and were forking over the big bucks to buy the import. In 1979 Epic records decided to release it here in America, and hold back the release of Dream Police. At Budokan is a great album, because it captures the magic of Cheap Trick in concert, there's a lot more energy in the songs and performances than the album versions. Live, Cheap Trick has something they just can't capture on their albums. Currently they have Cheap Trick at Budokan the complete concert, I would recommend springing for the double disk set instead of this version. Both are great!"
