How the East Was Won - My Japan 1971 Live Album


Recommended Posts

I put together my very own Japan 1971 compilation using the shows that we know (or suspect) were multitracked: the 23rd, 24th, 28th, and 29th shows. I used what are considered to be the best or definitive versions of each show: 

September 23rd - My own compilation of EVSD's "First Attack of the Rising of the Sun", Watch Tower's "Rock Carnival" and TDOLZ's "Reflection From a Dream"

September 24th - TDOLZ's "Light and Shade" (I thought about using Graf Zeppelin's recent "Super Stars" release, but the more I thought about it, the less I liked the distant sound on it)

September 28th - Lighthouse's "Osaka 1971 1st Night"

September 29th - Wendy's "Live in Japan 1971 929"

Here is my track listing:
1. Introduction - 23rd
2. Immigrant Song - 24th
3. Heartbreaker - 24th
4. Since I've Been Loving You - 23rd
5. Black Dog - 24th
6. Dazed and Confused - 29th
7. Stairway to Heaven – 23rd
8. Please Please Me/From Me to You - 28th
9. Celebration Day - 29th
10. Bron-Y-Aur Stomp - 28th
11. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (instrumental snippet) - 29th
12. That's the Way - 29th
13. Going to California - 29th
14. We Shall Overcome - 28th
15. Tangerine - 29th
16. Down By the Riverside - 28th
17. Friends - 29th
18. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (snippet) - 29th
19. What Is and What Should Never Be - 23rd
20. Moby Dick - 29th
21. Whole Lotta Love - 23rd
22. C'mon Everybody - 28th
23. High Heeled Sneakers - 28th
24. Communication Breakdown - 29th
25. Organ Solo - 29th
26. Thank You - 29th
27. Rock and Roll - 29th

Here is a YouTube upload I did of it, made to sound like one giant "super concert" (NOTE: Stairway had to be removed due to copyright):
