They're the exact same recordings and not different versions. This points towards the version posted being from a later compilation and not the original LP as issued. As they're currently tagged, all these tracks are from the compilation "東京キッドブラザース全漂流記" or "Tokyo Kid Brothers Collection of [err...] Castaway Accounts of Foreign Lands". At least that's what it's got in my dictionary for 漂流記 (hyoryuki). If you look at this TKB fansite, there's a track listing for the box set that came out in 2001: http://www.endless-kid.net/cd/index.html Now, disc one of this set, according to the little bit written for each disc, has two recordings made for the Polydor label in 1970. One is some production called "Ushinawareta Ai No Iro" (The Lost Colour Indigo?). The other is the original cast recording of Golden Bat as staged in New York. I've wasted a good twenty minutes trying to work out what the hell "鳴罹自成" is, until I now realise it's just a devious old-fashioned way of writing the word "Original"... Disc 4 from the box set also contains a recording of Golden Bat. This one was made for Victor in 1977. If you compare this track listing of the disc to the recording you've posted, it's the same and includes these extra tracks from "Throw Away The Books...". So this made me think that maybe this one you've posted is the '77 from this box set, as John suggests, and not the original 1970 recording. Hmm, but the box set version could still be an edited version of the original LP. And it is! This was confirmed when I found a page with photos of the original Polydor LP version and compared the track listing for side one. This begins "Prologue", "Tokyo Nehan", "Okakura".. and not "Overture Freedom Now", "Hi-Hi-Hi", 'Hisashiburi Ni Modottekita Machi Wa"... The page is here: http://www.musicfield.jp/item/201478/11306#detail The original 1970 version appears to have been reissued as a CD by Polydor in 1995 (POCH-1521): http://music.yahoo.co.jp/shop/c/10/poch1521 Monster Japanese cult underground experimental rock. Also known under the title “Golden Bat”, this was Tokyo Kid Brothers first album. Almost all of the albums they churned out during the late seventies and eighties are completely crap, but their initial period from 1971 till 1973 is just great. Psychedelic Dada-ism, theatrical lysergic pleasures, demented fuzz intersections, wild keyboard playing by Hiro Yanagida (Food Brain, Sato Masahiko & Soundbreakers, Milk Time, etc) demented choruses, female wailing crescendos, rural esoteric fertility rite like incantations, exorcist ritualistic tribal stomping, totally insane one liners, heavy bass shifting, heavy guitar licks, psychedelic mayhem, crazy stage action etc, just one great psyched out cabaret/rock opera recorded live in concert in 1971 and released that same year. Content-wise this album wouldn't even sound strange in a post 9/11 climate, criticizing American popular culture, taken a piss with the grandeur and the unrelenting post-colonial attitude of dissolving non-Western cultures the largest powerbase in the world got famous for. The Kid Brothers already tackled this madness in 1971. But apart from that the music is stellar. If you like the psyched out dementia of Jashumon era Tenjosajiki and J.A. Seazer madness than this jewel has written you all over it. Extremely rare since these babies sold very poorly at the time. Comes housed in a great gimmick petal-like fold out jacket. Highest possible recommendation if you are into demented wild Japanese psychedelia of the early seventies spiked up with a theatrical feel, like sitting through an acid trip and trying to keep your senses nicely lined up without getting lost in the dissolving canyons of your mind.
