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 did take place in December 1996 in Tokyo, Japan 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 Genesis, King Crimson and Hackett solo 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 present the first ever triple LP vinyl release of "THE TOKYO TAPES" exclusively for Record Store Day 2022. It includes a studio track not featured on the first release of the album, a version of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" by STEVE HACKETT & JOHN WETTON, along with two studio tracks featured on the original 1997 CD release. This Record Store Day limited edition of "Tokyo Tapes" is the ultimate version of this classic live album.
