This is an incredible an iconic album and it my opinion the best live hard rock album ever. If you like rock, you will be listen to this over and over a never get tired. My only qualm with this album is that some of the most of the spoken words are include on the preceding tracks instead of the tracks they belong. One person found this helpful. Purchased a used original copy of this album from Uncle Eddies LP and could not be happier, to my surprise the version I received was the Japanese release with both Japanese and English liner notes.
Quality of this original recording and pressing is top notch and a must have for any Cheap Trick fan! I've never been a huge fan of live recordings where the shrill screaming of fans is present. That made me procrastinate buying Budokan for years, when I already owned Cheap Trick's first 5 studio albums.
At Budokan is really a sort of "greatest hits" of the two albums they'd released prior to Budokan Cheap Trick and In Colorplus the one they were about to release Dream Police. I just can't describe what Rick's opening guitar licks on Big Eyes do to me.
They kill me. Every time. But then, that wouldn't be possible without the booming drum setup by Bun E. Need Your Love starts slow but gains momentum about halfway through, and towards the end, they really pull out all the stops and it rocks WAY harder than on Dream Police. Surrender does too. Lookout wasn't on any of their albums but it's a great rocker too. The intro alone is a stomping, virtuoso effort, heavily focused on Rick's guitar -- including a fantastic section where he plays the opening chords what sounds like Surrender before blasting into Ain't That A Shame.
What a freakin' fantastic cover. Cheap Trick is a group of excellent, well-rehearsed, trained musicians who love playing melodic, catchy but HARD rock songs together live, loud, and tight. That's what they do best, and it is amply demonstrated by At Budokan.
This album is a must-have Cheap Trick album. Bottom line. They are one of the few bands or artists where, over the years decades I've owned their music in multiple formats: vinyl, cassette, CD, LP, and MP3. Normally I resent having to re-buy stuff I already own in new formats and often just flatly refuse or go without unless I pick up a CD used cheap at a thrift store and rip it later.
But I don't mind it much with them. Cheap Trick are simply that good and their music consistently pleasurable to listen to. Their newer and middle stuff is as good as the early stuff, it just hasn't gotten the same exposure. They have always been one of those hard to categorize bands, with Nielsen's great pop hooks and hard 'n crunchy guitars, Peterson's amazing and melodic bass playing, Bun E's fantastic drumming although these days, it's Rick's son playing with them live instead of Bun E.
I know they're usually pegged as a Album) pop" band. And I guess that is true, to a certain extent. But to me they've always been a hard rock band, as on their debut album. This is beautifully displayed on At Budokan. The irony is that although I'd classify Cheap Trick as hard rock, Rick Nielsen has an almost operatic sense of music.
I forgot how good this album is. Saw Cheap Trick recently and the were phenomenal!! Had to have the CD because we have the vinyl album. Glad to have it. Great memories. This is one of those albums I've always meant to buy, but never got around to, as I had most of the songs in studio recording format already.
But it's definitely a Classic. But the fans there really loved the band, and this album really did a lot to put Cheap Trick over the top in the 70's, which they very much deserved. The fans in the audience screamed their approval Cheap Trick rocks like nobody else That track is the second best tune in my view.
Number one? Long live this fabulous band! I rate this a top twenty all-time "Live" album. Crank it up! Great album. My introduction to Cheap Trick. One of the best rock bands ever, IMHO. The CD is great. I was slightly disappointed when I opened the package and the case was cracked and broken.

This means you get Mandocello - Cheap Trick - Cheap Trick (Vinyl very best of the Cheap Trick experience at the poppier end of their musical spectrum and it is a terrific ride of over 45 minutes of high octane entertainment. That said, the standout track is the darker and heavier 'Need your Love' with its extended instrumental passages.
The audience soundtrack with its mostly female Beatles-esque screaming is a little intrusive at times and is almost too much between the song breaks if you are listening at a decent volume but it is all part of the At Budokan experience! While the songs have hooks and attitude that arena rock was sorely lacking in the late '70s, they are also informed by a bizarre sensibility, whether it's the driving "He's a Whore," the dreamy "Mandocello," or the thumping Gary Glitter perversion "ELO Kiddies.
