In 1978 Bonnie Raitt played at least six shows in Japan and this is the last night of three at the Kubo Koudou in Tokyo.
It's a wonderful show, overall good capture that is likely a few generations removed from the master. It appears under-circulated and is a great performance that demanded wider distribution. It did run quite slow and required a +50 cents pitch adjustment but mastered better than I thought it would when I started working on it.
During the show Bonnie mentions it is being recorded for radio broadcast but I cannot find any documentation of a 1978 Japanese FM (if anyone has it please share).
This show does a nice job captures all sides of Bonnie's styles and talent.
Thanks to MR for the file, samples and artwork provided....
