BrazilOnGuitar says: On 26th September 1970 the Baden Powell Quartet visited Japan for the first time. They performed a show at the 2nd Newport Jazz festival on 3th October. The record Live in Japan represents a live recording of the concert program the Quartet was going to play during their following tour in Europe. They played an early version of "Abracao em Madrid", an improvised "Batuque in B - Berimbau", "Formosa" and also other ones.

Only three songs of this great concert were released on CD in 2003. An uncut recording of this concert in Japan is long overdue, but unfortunately not to expect. The Japanese first pressing was released January 1971 and very carefully done - Made in Japan.

This record "Live in Japan" was also released 1972 under the wrong title "Live at the Olympia" and 1973 as "Gravado ao vivo em Paris" with "Euridice" wrongly titled as "Folha Morta" or "Lenda do Abaete": the beginning of an erronous track-list, that found its way into the sampler "O Universo Musical de Baden Powell" from 2003.
