In 1984, Willie Nelson was at the height of his popularity, having racked up sixteen #1 country hits over the previous decade and crossing over to the pop charts multiple times, while starring in a series of hit movies and becoming one of the most recognized figures in popular culture. He united fans across genres and generations and his live shows had become legendary. In February of that year, he performed in Tokyo to kick off a five city tour that marked his first time playing in Japan, showing how global his appeal had become. The first shows were at the Budokan, the legendary martial arts hall and the February 23rd show was recorded and filmed for broadcast, eventually seeing release only as a laser disc in Japan. However the video was never seen anywhere else and the audio was never released at all…until now. The audio has been lovingly remixed by Willie’s longtime band member Mickey Raphael and includes 29 songs across two CDs. Also included is 27 of the songs on a DVD with the new audio mix and the picture restored to high definition. The show is an amazing collection of hits from “Whiskey River” to “Always On My Mind,” “On The Road Again” to “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.” Also included are amazing covers of songs like “Me And Bobby McGee,” “Georgia On My Mind” and “Stardust” and so much more.
