Rockford, Illinois's Cheap Trick proved to be no joke on the live, Japan-only "At Budokan", but the story of how the rest of the world ever got to hear it in February 1979 is a total fluke. Hear the story In the Studio from Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen.

Cheap Trick has been consistently excellent live for decades, as proven by this white hot performance long ago at Capital Theater in Passaic, NJ. Broadcast live in December 1978.

Forty-five years ago, Cheap Trick was poised on the brink, but depending on what continent you were referencing, it could have been the brink of Beatlemania-type mass popularity (as in Japan that Summer 1978), or the brink of disaster here…

On a maximum scale of five stars, the 1977 debut by Cheap Trick receives AllMusic.com's highest rating, and the even more melodic, better sounding sophomore effort "In Color" in the same year earns 4 1/2 stars. Then Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson, and Bun E. Carlos wrote and recorded the masterpiece "Heaven Tonight" in May 1978, yet again scoring a critics' perfect five star rating. So in hindsight it would appear that recording the Rockford IL quartet's set while performing the strongest material from these three killer studio albums, in front of an adoring audience in one of the world's premiere venues, would be as obvious as a sumo wrestler in your shower stall.

Cheap Trick actually delayed their studio follow-up to the brilliant 1978 third album Heaven Tonight , not because of a lack of strong songs written, but because their fluke live in-Japan- only release At Budokan virtually blew up over…
