The Durutti Column Domo Arigato v2point0 3CD/DVD
An expanded 4 disc edition of Domo Arigato, the acclaimed live album by The Durutti Column, recorded in Tokyo in April 1985.
 
Following the ambitious ‘modern classical’ album Without Mercy, Domo Arigato saw Vini Reilly and percussionist Bruce Mitchell augmented by John Metcalfe on viola and Tim Kellet on trumpet. 
 
Their show-cum-recital at the Kan’i Hoken Hall on 25 April was recorded digitally and filmed on two 35mm cameras.
 
For this expanded 2017 reissue, Factory Benelux have returned to the original soundboard tapes and remastered the performance, in the process restoring the original running order. A digital copy of this v2.0 mix is also included.
 
Disc 1 of the set presents the original digital mix from 1985, while Discs 2 and 3 include the 2017 soundboard remaster plus a previously unreleased gig from Tokyo Loft Club on 29 April 1984. Disc 4 is an NTSC format Region 0 DVD featuring a pristine transfer of the original Japanese laserdisc edition of Domo Arigato (a filmed version of the show using the 1985 digital mix).
