Review by b_olariu
4 stars One of my favrite bands ever relesed in 1994 a live album called simply Japan Live'94 recorded so far only on VHS in 1995 concert from Kawasaki, Japan. I have this album since he hits the market in mid '90's, till than i was listen constantly never get bored or something alike. With this live they present the newest album, then, Handful of rain. Obviously Savatage has a very big fan base in Japan, one of the most important markets of music in the world so was clear thet the music was well recived both by the public and critics from this country. This is a great album with pieces from all the periods of Savatage. So the majority of the pieces are from Handful of rain, the best from this album here is Chance. Some othe great tunes that sounds very good live are Gutter ballet and Jesus saves. Their is a piece who was dedicated to Chris Oliva memory All That I Bleed - simply superb - Zachary Stevens has a super voice that fits very well in this kind of music. Aswell this is the first album where we see Jeff Plate on drums. The guitar of Alex Skolnick truly shines on every piece, not a weak moment here. So overall this is a great VHS and desearve without question 4 stars, among the best from the '90's and the best band ever made. Recommended, excellent footage and great sound of one of my fav bands ever. This concert was released only in Japan by Zero Records and only on VHS format on october 9, 1995 . Never re issued on DVD so far. The Video contains four extra songs that are not on the CD live version .
