Album Notes
When Sounding Rick arrived at Kansai airport in Osaka, Japan he not only brought his band, he also brought his unique brand of American power pop. “Live in Japan” is Rick’s fifth record released in just 24 months (a mammoth feat for an independent artist).

The 12 tracks for Live in Japan were recorded in front of multiple audiences in Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya and Nara during the two-week tour in October 2006.

Even with the language and cultural differences, it is clear that there was a connection between Rick and the Japanese audiences. On some tracks you can actually hear the crowd singing along ("Oh No" comes to mind).

The record begins with three songs recorded at the same performance in Osaka at the famed Sun Hall. "Long Time Ago", "Left Your Mark" and "Man in Space" set the tone for an exciting experience. It is interesting to hear the different audiences in various cities and how their enthusiasm transcends verbal communication.

The last two songs provide a real treat, 1) Our first listen to the previously unreleased “Sorry Charlie” and 2) super-powerful show stopper, “Chim Chim Cher-ee” (not your momma’s Mary Poppins for sure).

This CD is a great addition Sounding Rick's rapidly growing body of work.

Solid performance, powerful-catchy songs.
I saw one of Rick's shows at the Music Farm in Nagoya and was surprised how good it was. This CD reminded me of why I was drawn to the songs, they are very catchy and pop oriented with some good power songs to boot.
Some of the songs on this CD do not appear on the other Sounding Rick albums which makes it real treat. "Sorry Charlie" and "Times Change" are really good songs!
