Overview

The band Teaze, formed in Windsor, Ontario, in the mid-'70s, started out as a cover band, and, in 1976, the band released a self-titled debut for a local label. On the success of that album, Teaze signed to Aquarius Records and released their debut album for the label, On the Loose, in 1977. The album and the single, "Sweet Misery," were a hit, and in 1978 Teaze embarked on a world tour. One of the first stops on the tour was Tokyo, Japan, which was the band's first performance outside of Canada. The concert was recorded for posterity and technical reasons, but it was not originally intended to be a live album. The show went so well and overseas demand for Teaze recordings was so great that the recording was released as the album Tour of Japan later that year while the band was still on the road. The album consisted of ten songs from the live set and focused mainly on the band's live energy and consisted of material from their pre-Aquarius days and the On the Loose album. Noticeably missing from the songlist was the band's biggest and only hit "Sweet Misery," a song that did not fit well with the hard rock image of the band. The album was a huge seller in Europe and Asia, and it attracted the attention of Capitol Records in the U.S.A. with an offer of a recording contract. The album also established Teaze as one of Canada's premier hard rock acts with international recognition. This release by Unidisc Records is a straight reissue of the original Aquarius Records album at a budget price, complete with original artwork, but unfortunately it contains no bonus tracks.
