Visions Of China (French 3 LP set)

From Sakamoto's "Sound street" radio show this is the ultimate Japan bootleg in the LP format. The tracks were mixed by John Punter (but quite different to Oil On Canvas) and there are guest appearances from Sakamoto, Takahashi and Akiko Yano. The third LP includes the Sound street radio show recorded just after the last ever Japan concert, which is very amusing. This LP set comes in an attractive gatefold sleeve. The record labels are incorrect - the real track listing is below.
