The other live album is the 2-disk "Live in Japan" (1974 A&M release). This is a delightful album and makes me wish I had seen the Carpenters perform live! They sing various long medleys of the songs from their career, with narration between by both Karen and Richard. The set sums up their careers in an entertaining fashion. The Carpenters' unique talents are preserved in a live performance that, like "Carpenters: Live in Japan," allows the listener to more clearly understand what made them such popular and spectacular musicians. It has been said that a hallmark of musical giftedness is how similar one's recorded sound is to a live performance. Live at the Palladium" brings you front row center for a performance by one of the greatest singers who ever lived.

Live in Japan (The Carpenters album). Promotion for the album included a whistle-stop tour of America, Brazil and Europe, preceded by a disastrous live appearance for a Japanese Telethon event, lmed outdoors on the lot of A&M in August 1981. During their segment (the last of the show), the playback audio cut out midway through their performance of Touch Me When We're Dancing.
George Harrison returned to the stage for the first time in years in 1991; that Japanese tour is documented on the fine double-disc set Live in Japan. Backed by a stellar supporting band led by Eric Clapton, Harrison turns in surprisingly strong versions of his best solo material; it easily surpasses Paul McCartney's double-disc Tripping the Live Fantastic or Paul Is Live. Not bad for a guy who doesn't like to give concerts. Track Listing - Disc 1.
