I know that the fictional live LP "Jap Habit" actually was pressed as a gift to the cast and crew, containing a lot of songs from the debut, Back from the Dead, Break Like the Wind and many unreleased ones. There were two versions included: the "UK" and "US" ones.

Tracklists (as per http://steveworek.blogspot.com.au/2010/03/spinal-taps-jap-habit-real-album.html):

UK version:

SIDE ONE
Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight
David St. Hubbins: "We're going to kick things off with another little number from the album before this last one, called 'Intravenus De Morphine'..."
Intravenus de Milo [yes, a song by this title!]
Saliva Of The Fittest
Swallow My Love
David St. Hubbins: "Here's a tune for all the ladies in the house, so feel free to shower the stage with knickers and aphrodesiacs..."
Big Bottom

SIDE TWO
David St. Hubbins: "Let's take a bit of a nostalgia trip, shall we?"
Gimme Some Money
(Listen To The) Flower People
Break Like The Wind
David St. Hubbins: "Feel free to sing along with this one. It's called 'We Are All Flower People.'"
We Are All Flower People
The Incredible Flight Of Icarus P. Anybody

SIDE THREE
Brainhammer
Lie Back And Take It
Nerve Damage
Blood To Let
David St. Hubbins: "Are you ready for another visit from the Goddess Intravenus?"
Rock and Roll Nightmare [I'm assuming that this song was meant to be from 'Intravenus de Milo', though no official discography describes it as such.]

SIDE FOUR
Band Intros
David St. Hubbins: "Anyone here want to help us stink up the Budokkan?"
Nice 'N' Stinky
Silent But Deadly
David St. Hubbins: "We'd like to give you a taste of the album we're working on at the moment, so to get you jumping in anticipation, here's a little heavy duty rock 'n' roll featuring Mr. Nigel Tufnel, MBE on lead guitar..."
Heavy Duty [featuring a lengthy Nigel solo]
David St. Hubbins: "Nigel Tufnel, ladies and gentlemen!"

SIDE FIVE
David St. Hubbins: "This is a little suite of songs from our new album, called 'The Sun Never Sweats'.... it's an educational piece about Britannia. I hope you enjoy it."
Daze Of Knights Of Old
The Sun Never Sweats
Devil Take The Hindmost
Nocturnal Mission [an instrumental, with pounding drums - resembled something from a movie score]
Stonehenge
David St. Hubbins: "Thank you, Japan! Hope to see you again soon!"

SIDE SIX
Rockin' Robin
Short 'N' Sweet [long version, around 15 minutes]
David St. Hubbins: "We love you all! Good night and may the Devil bless all of you!"

US version:

SIDE ONE
Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight
David: 'Intravenus de Morphine' banter
Intravenus de Milo
Swallow My Love
Big Bottom
David: 'nostalgia trip' banter
(Listen To The) Flower People

SIDE TWO
Break Like The Wind
The Incredible Flight of Icarus P. Anybody
Brainhammer
Blood To Let
David: 'Goddess Intravenus' banter
Rock 'N' Roll Nightmare

SIDE THREE
David: 'educational piece' banter
Daze Of Knights Of Old
The Sun Never Sweats
Devil Take The Hindmost
Nocturnal Mission
Stonehenge [followed by 30 seconds of applause, rather than the farewell from the UK version]

SIDE FOUR [Essentially, this version creates a fake 'encore' by combining material from the fourth UK side with an edited "Short 'N' Sweet".]
Band Intros
David: 'stink up the Budokkan' banter [edited rather awkwardly onto the end of the band intros]
Nice 'N' Stinky
Heavy Duty
Short 'N' Sweet [edited down to seven minutes]
David: 'thank you Japan' banter [originally from UK side five - replaces the 'Devil blessing' that originally ended the album]

Prompts the question: On what day did the Lord create Spinal Tap? And couldn't He have rested on that day too?
