Notes

Tracks A1, B1 & B5 are studio recordings. All other tracks were recorded live, November 1982 at the Hammersmith Odeon, London.

This unofficial release features some tracks which appear on the UK versions: TCVD 2513 & OVEDC 406. However this cassette has a different track order. Whilst 'Canton' is listed as track A8 on the sleeve, it is omitted from the tape. Temple of Dawn is also excluded. There are also typo errors on the sleeve & tape too:

Track B1: Printed as 'Night Porter' which should read as 'Nightporter'.
Track B3: Printed as 'Contonese Boy' which should read 'Cantonese Boy'.
Track B5: Printed as 'Voices Raised It Welcome, Hands Held' whereas it should read as 'Voices Raised In Welcome, Hands Held In Prayer'.

Due to the editing of this cassette, some tracks are cut short. These are:

A7: The Art of Parties
B2: Still Life In Mobile Homes

At the end of 'Visions of China' it would normally merge into 'Ghosts'. At the point of when 'Ghosts' comes in, it fades away and 'Voices Raised In Welcome, Hands Held In Prayer' takes it's place. Then 'Ghosts' plays afterwards. In essence to get to hear David Sylvian say "thank you" twice!

The inside cover states other Japan releases in this series:

7194: Assemblange (spelling error on cover)
7722: Visions Of China
7858: Tin Drum
