DPAS mentioned that there is a Japanese box set of Rainbow Memories in Rock on the market that includes a soundboard recording of the Birmingham show as a bonus. This is of interest as by most accounts that show featured the best performance of the three gig mini-tour, while the two German shows on the release can be best described as, ahem, tentative.
Our Japanese correspondent furnishes further details.
The “super premium” box set in question has a limited edition run of 500 copies and is available exclusively through Ward Records for a princely sum of ¥34,884 (¥32,300 excluding tax). In addition to the 2CD Birmingham recording, it includes the regular Japanese editions of the album (compiled from the two German shows) on Blu-ray, 2CD, and vinyl, plus a photo booklet, and a t-shirt.
Birmingham track list:
1. Over the Rainbow – Highway Star
2. Spotlight Kid
4. Since You Been Gone
5. Man on the Silver Mountain
