Night Ranger's fortunes may have been waning back home in the U.S. by the late 1980s, but the quintet remained as popular as ever in Japan--as evidenced by 1990's LIVE IN JAPAN. Name a Night Ranger favorite of the 80's and chances are it's here.
The rockers "Don't Tell Me You Love Me," "When You Close Your Eyes," and the anthem "(You Can Still) Rock in America," are included, as well as more refined fare, such as "Sister Christian" and "Goodbye." LIVE IN JAPAN would prove to be the last Night Ranger release for another five years, until 1995's all-new studio album FEEDING OFF THE MOJO appeared.
