Japan Quiet Life 2021 Remaster Deluxe Boxset
A deluxe 1LP/3CD edition of Japan’s breakthrough release.
 
On Quiet Life, the band established its unique blend of Art Pop sophistication, affecting avant-balladry and groundbreaking electronic experiments to deliver a genre-less record that would come to define much of the adventurous early 1980s musical landscape.
 
Featuring a 2020 Abbey Road half-speed remaster of the original album, alt mixes, b-sides, singles, rarities and live material (including the sought after Live At Budokan show from March 1980, previously only available as the 4 track EP Live In Japan).
 
The set contains liner notes with contributions from band members and original producer, plus rare and unseen photography and memorabilia.
 
--------
 
BMG are working directly with original band members Steve Jansen and Rob Dean, producer John Punter and with consultant advice from band biographer Anthony Reynolds and the Japanese Shinko archive.
