Released exclusively on the long since discontinued and deleted format LaserDisc only and only in Japan in 1988, the following has NEVER been released on DVD until NOW!
This REMASTERED DVD is sourced directly from the original high quality LaserDisc to DVD for the first time ever! Quality is unmatched as it transferred from the long since deleted Japanese LaserDisc from OVER THIRTY THREE years ago.
Background: This concert to put it simply was never released in America in any format ever upon its release in 1984 or anytime since then. The concert was however released on VHS format exclusively in Germany and UK only. The only NTSC release was a Japanese laserdisc which this REMASTERED DVD comes from. Even now the LaserDisc of this rare concert is still considered a time capsule. Still to this day, this vintage concert has NEVER been officially released here in America in ANY format, not on VHS, not on laserdisc, not on DVD until NOW! So here it is for the first time ever on DVD for any true aficionado of jazz music is the weather report. “Japan Domino Theory Weather Report Live In Tokyo”
Description: This concert was recorded Live in Tokyo, Japan on September 27th 1984.
