Thank you. This is a song I wrote for a friend of mine a few years back. (before To Ramona)

Thank you. Very nice to be here in this country. (before Oh Sister)

Thank you. We’re getting to learn that one. I wanna introduce you to some of the people up here. I bet you’ve been wondering who they are. Playing the horns tonight we have Steve Douglas. On the violin and the mandolin David Mansfield. These three young ladies at the back, on the left, far left is Helena Springs. In the middle is my ex-wife Jo Ann Harris. Debbie Franklin, on the left. On rhythm guitar we have Steve Soles tonight. On the bass guitar Rob Stoner. On the drums Ian Wallace from Great Britain. Lead guitar Billy Cross. On the organ Alan Pasqua, on the conga drums Bobbye Hall. (before It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding))

We’re gonna leave you with this tune. It’s been a pleasure singing here. Thank you very much. We’re gonna be leaving town in about three days, but we’ll be back, and we’ll see you then. (before Forever Young)

From the original uploader:
Here’s some more Bob “Budokan” Dylan.

Files as I received them.

Thanks to all those who made this possible.

I couldn’t find any recordings of this show so I mastered this one from my cassettes.
I expect that this is the same recording as LB-1238

From the original uploader:

This first concert of the 1978 tour proved to be a major problem in trying to sort out a decent tape.
There are two different mono tapes, but neither is particually good; one LB-4760 is fairly dull sounding, and the other LB-1018 is very harsh and distorted (over-recorded?).
I haven’t used the LB source tapes, but have mastered these recordings from my cassettes of these recordings.
Here I have used the best part of the less harsh tape and only used the second tape for the last 4 songs. For these last 4 songs the less harsh tape gets noticably poorer, and as the concert seems to drop in volume the harsh tape begins to sound a lot better. Additionally, the first tape tends to have drop outs and major volume reductions on one channel, so I tended to use the better channel for large parts of the tape.

Make sure you have a listen to the only performance in 1978 of “Something There is About You”

One of the better shows from Japan. (all better I think than the US shows.)
This tape by RK was seeded Mar 2007 but sounds a bit better now.
