  4. This disc was a must back when I found it in 1992. The first time I heard many of these tracks on CD. Since I collected five of the eight bands, it was a no-brainer when i saw it in that store in Toronto.

    • As always, an excellent and insightful review, Monk – thanks for sharing. For me, this compilation’s value is primarily attached to that rare “Life In Tokyo” remix – my favorite version since first hearing it on the special edition cassette of “Assemblage.” Although that mix is also available on the 2006 reissue of “Assemblage” and the 2009 budget CD “The Collection”, the ending has been hacked on both (it appears in mono on the 1996 “In Vogue” CD). Also, an edited version of that mix appears on “Souvenir From Japan” (1989).

      Anyone have Volume 2?

      • Shelf – I like all versions of “Life In Tokyo” equally, but if you want to see me play favorites, invoke my fave rave JAPAN single, “European Son.”

        • An excellent choice, to be sure :-) Between “Life In Tokyo” and “European Son”, you have the blueprint for the New Romantic sound (not that the band would have wanted such credit). Whenever playing “Assemblage” back in the day, I recall ‘enduring’ the first five tracks for the satisfaction of the other half.

          • Shelf – Well, it was like two different bands wasn’t it? Then, a year later, they were an entirely different proposition by the time of “Tin Drum.”

            • Talk about rapid evolution – that was one of the the most incredible transformations in music history. And while the band’s existence might seem too fleeting, that may have been for the best.
