Background: Released in 1977, The Runaways Live in Japan was the only live album released by the band in the 1970s.
The album was originally released only in Japan, Canada, the Netherlands and a few other countries. It was not released in either the U.S. or the UK.
Because the Runaways were much better known in Japan than the U.S., it stands to reason that their only live album was recorded in that country. …The original Runaways lineup (Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, Lita Ford, Jackie Fox, and Sandy West) was still in place, and the rockers’ primary focus is on material from The Runaways and Queens of Noise. Holding nothing back, Ford is at her most metallic. Except for a handful of bootlegs, Live in Japan is the only documentation of the Runaways on stage.
