In 1984, Willie Nelson was coming into the beginning of his popularity, having racked up 16
No. 1 country hits from 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 already 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 laserdisc in Japan. However, the video was never released anywhere else and the audio
was never released at all…until now. Exclusively on vinyl for participating independent
retailers for RSD Black Friday, this performance finds Willie and Family at a monumental
point of their powers and includes a 27-song, hit-filled set across two LPs.
