A CD release for one of Nico's last ever concerts, recorded in Tokyo on April 11th 1986. Famed for her involvement in the Velvet Underground & being one of Jim Morrison's lovers, Nico was discovered by Andy Warhol & appeared in the film 'Chelsea Girls' before being asked by him to perform with the Velvet Underground. The 70's resulted in a period of change for Nico & she emerged in the 80's to play over 1000 concerts within a seven year period. This album will appeal not only to Nico collectors but also to fans of the genre in general. 11 tracks. Includes extensive sleeve notes & memorabilia. Anagram Records. 2003.

"I have always wondered how Nico had performed her brilliant songs from Camera Obscura. As I listen to this album, I notice that once again Nico exceeded my expectations:-) I heard that in the Japanese version of this album "Win a Few" was added as the bonus track. Unfortunately it is not in here. I wish that someday they will add it. This is one of the best live recordings of Nico. I really have difficulty in finding words to describe it. Nico proved that she could experiment with rock, goth and jazz while maintaining her unique sound. Together with "Fata Morgana" which is Nico's last concert, Live in Tokyo sums up the talent of this rock goddess."
