A very special project for me because it contained one CD of tracks from my pre-Mad Chinaman days, all deleted.
The release also coincided with a Japan tour and this concert was rather special in that it was a large-scale, almost theatrical production, with lots of costume changes, guests and a larger band than usual. I re-recorded Life Story for this album with a new a capella arrangement at the start.
The 2 CD set also included a photo book taken by M. Hasui which made me look like a serious Japanese musician. It was flattering in a way because that's how the Japanese perceived me, but it really wasn't me at all.
