    Yep, they keep on coming. Boxsets.
    This time the one-off concert with Greg Lake as Lead singer/bassist.

    Had the VHS copy back in the day. Watched it once or twice.

    Boxset features new Dean cover that suspiciously looks like his work for Steve Howe back in the day. Architectural.

    2 x new Dean posters.

    Released by Burning Shed.

    First Bill Bruford, and now Asia. Boxsets are catching like the flu!

      I remember watching this gig at a bar when they did the original braodcast. I thought it was great at the time. I think I do have a boot DVD of the show somewhere. I would purchase a stand-alone blu-ray of this show now. Hopefully that will be an option.

        Nope. Boxset, 2LP or 1CD are the options.

          Might even be from back in the day, because it looks unfinished, like a sketch.

            It's absolutely old art: it's in Views or Magnetic Storm, one of the two books from back in the day. And the font is pretty much what he's used for the last decade, so who knows, maybe he wasn't even that involved with the cover…

              This is frustrating. Just watched 'Here Comes The Feeling' which they have put out on YouTube as a taster and it looks good. For the Blu-ray only to be available in a box set costing £100 is annoying. I might have been tempted with this but that's just too much to try and justify to my other half on a band I enjoy without being fanatical about them ☹️

                In the Budokan gig, Lake sings,

                "Now we find ourselves in '83
                The disco hotspots hold no charms for me."


                Will the next ASIA singer, sing this

                "Now we find ourselves in '22
                The covid hotspots hold no charms for you."


                ??????????????

                  I've just viewed the "Here Comes The Feeling" video. Looks very good. I did enjoy that stage set up when I saw them on tour. They had a bit of money to spend on that tour.
                  As this was back in the day before a lot of the modern vocal effects were available on stage,I wondered then - and now - if they used tapes for the back up vocals. The back up vocals don't sound much like Steve Howe. I don't think I've ever heard Geoff Downes sing on his own so I don't really know if he can sing.
                  Does anyone know if Asia used tapes for the background vocals live?

                    I’d have to listen again to the live recordings from 83 with John Wetton to compare, but I wonder if they had backstage background singers for the MTV show.

                      Def old Deanos. From his architectonic period.

                        It’s not in the books, at least I can’t find it.

                          Wetton said that "83" was not actually a reference to the year, but to a particular venue called that (because it was at 83 something street). However, Asia nonetheless did often update the line to the current year.

                            There's a Japanese version with the Blu-ray + 2 CDs, but no vinyl: https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/%E3%82...1Rv67TJlmt64pM

                            I don't know whether that will just be for Japan or whether we'll see that version in the UK.

                              Gotta point out Henry. Wetton originally wrote

                              "and now we find ourselves in 82
                              the disco hotspots hold no charms for you".

                              82.


                              Lake was updating.



                              Wonder what the other updates were?

                              "and now we find ourselves in 94
                              the disco hotspots hold no charms for l'amore". ????
