Ian Gillan Band Live At The Budokan 1977

Live At Budokan is a live album by the Ian Gillan Band.

It was recorded at the Budokan in Tokyo, Japan on 22 September 1977. It was released a few months later.

While Ian Gillan paid tribute to his time with Deep Purple with three classics, this is a much more sophisticated sound that some people have described as jazz rock fusion.

It’s better, more listenable than you might expect but this is not a hard rock sequel to Made In Japan.
