"What would happen if occasional members of Genesis, King Crimson, Asia, Yes, Frank Zappa & Weather Report all got together to form a unique team for just one night" - Such an event took place in December 1996 in Tokyo, when Steve Hackett gathered together a group featuring JOHN WETTON (Bass / Vocals), IAN McDONALD (Flute / Sax / Guitar / Keyboards / Vocals), CHESTER THOMPSON (Drums) and JULIAN COLBECK (Keyboards / Vocals) to perform a wonderful set that featured classic tracks such as "Watcher of the Skies", "Firth of Fifth", "The Court of the Crimson King", "Shadow of the Hierophant", "Los Endos" and many more. Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce a new special release of "THE TOKYO TAPES" which has been newly remastered and includes a brand new studio track especially recorded for this reissue, "All Along the Watchtower" by STEVE HACKETT & JOHN WETTTON, along with two studio tracks featured on the 1997 CD release. This set also features an NTSC / Region Free DVD of the Tokyo Tapes concert, (long deleted), and bonus rehearsal footage. This version of "Tokyo Tapes" is the ultimate edition of this classic live album.
